    You are right. I am using Yoko A and my only worry is the high speed braking in wet and dry. sometimes frightening. Otherwise it ticks all other boxes for the Punto. Itis reasonably good even for the normal GC. A VFM tyre

    Hi guys,

    Because of the Snapdeal offer of 15% discount on tyres. I'm planning to buy either Goodyear or Apollo for my Linea and not kendas because price difference is not much

    Can you please advise which one?

    Goodyear GT3 (@3800) or Apollo Acelere (@4000)?

    What about duraplus or assurance?

    Not keen on mrf,yoko,bridge stone,Michelin etc

    ^^Goodyear GT3 are fantastic in all other areas, except they can be noisy. So Apollo Acelere maybe a better choice.

    I don't have any experience with both these tyres but the GT3 is the OE tyre for the Linea so I think you can't go wrong with it. And it is also cheaper as you have mentioned.

    Acelere is also OE for Linea. :)

    Already have gt3. But gone bad just after 30k. So not sure if it makes sense to buy again.

    Any idea on assurance or duraplus?

    ^^Would you like a deal on Falken. I can direct you to some person who can offer good prices. But price will be near Rs. 4.5k/-

    Sorry can't say much about Assurance and Duraplus.
