    Ravi!

    I have a very rough driving style. Can they withstand the potholes/bad roads of Hyd?

    I can't comment on Hyd roads (as I haven't seen it :)), but Acelere should be able to handle all these.
    Don't consider Michelin (XM2).

    I can't find information about GRIPP LN in CEAT website. I don't know whether the site is not updated or the product has been discontinued???:confused:

    Im using avs db and I've also driven cars that have 3st.
    I feel yoko is about 10% noiser than michellin . But you will not find a major difference at all.
    Especially if you are looking At Bridgestone then either of these will be far better

    Black, I have Bridgestone right now.. How is 3ST wall against AVS db? Also, how big does each look - I think Michelin tires look smaller than counterparts..

    Appollo Acelere will do the job. Its very much suitable for rough driving conditions.

    I have ordered Apollo Acelere tyres through snapdeal. Initially i was thinking about CEAT GRIPP LN but since i could not get any information regarding the specification from the CEAT India website I refrained from buying it and went ahead with Apollo Acelere. Once i fit them in my car i will sure post my feelings about those tyres.

    How does the side walls for Appollo Accelere do? Safe for rough driving style(rough means, not caring about medium sized potholes in case of urgent going) and regular hyderabad roads?

    Satishgv! What is the price you ordered for on snapdeal? and What is the price quoted at the vendor? Can i order for just one tyre? What is the size of tyre you ordered for? Is it 195/60/R15?

    Yea even I've heard that Michelin looks smaller.
    Side wall of the ST is just about softer than avs . Avs is slightly more oriented towards sporty drive while not compromising on comfort.
    Finally i feel the side wall debate is more only for conversion sake. It really comes down to proer driving habits and tyre maintenance and only about 30% is related to the actual tyre type.
    Please note I've driven on one of the hardest tyre and now on a soft one. My personal verdict would be to be sensible and buy soft ones.
