    After running stock GoodYear DuraPlus on steel rims for 52000 kms, I upgraded to Punto 15" alloys and Yoko Earth 1, 185x65xR15.
    FE is down by 2 km/l but comfort has improved. A car vaccume cleaner was a free gift with tyres.

    @ hocuspocus: If you want a very long life then you would have to go for some hard compound tyres. 50,000 kms is a little too much to ask out of a tyre, even if they do have tread life left they would generally be past their prime. If you want a mix of all features, the bridgestone regular tyres would do the job and would be cheaper than the Michelin's.

    I fill up between 30 to 32 on my Michelin Primacy 3st's.

    @ Ganges: You should go with AVS db for the other two tyres as they are supposed to be silent tyres and if you put a tyre is noisier it would negate the silence of the AVSdb. Just my thought. And I think they are better tyres than earth series, which I assume are just budget tyres for the indian market.

    At my place if I want to get Avs db I have to wait for another 4 days. The old tires are at scary condition and have to travel tomorw 900 km drive with rains all over .I thought Earth is the nearest tire to avs db.How about A drives better than earth?

    Earth is newer tyre and better than A-Drive. You can take it. This is developed specially for Indian road condition.
