@PaddleShifter - I heard from Yoko dealer saying if maintained well, S-drive will last easily upto 40k depending on driving style. I'm not into hard breaking or drifting all times, but may be occasionally. I didn't considered anyother brand apart from Yoko, thought i have seen Pirelli they are way beyond costly. I have seen Continental CPC2 pics online but the threading doesnt look sporty. Does anybody using Yoko S-drive give any inputs on longevity?
