    My friends at SOS have tried Kumho ecsta, silverstone, falcon, Hls, and what not but all off them have dissappointed with poor braking and grip levels. So now all use either S drives or the latest A drive R1's.
    Rest is all upto u bro.


    Just my POV.
  3. A drive....... it is............ :)

    Mrf z.l.o

    MRF's first take on a performance car tyre, the ZLO is here. With the ZLO performance tyre MRF has set its sights on the market for premium car tyres. With its V rating the tyre can be used on most high end cars with a limited top speed of 250 km/h

    It’s good to see Indian companies growing at such a fast rate these days. And it’s much the same story with our automobile companies and ancillary industries. They are all playing on a global field, going head to head with some of the best in their respective industries. MRF has joined that bandwagon with their latest tyre the ZLO. MRF has placed the ZLO in the premium car tyre market to compete with the likes of Goodyear, Pirelli and the lot.

    The ZLO range of tyres will cater to high premium cars such as BMWs, Audis, Jaguars, etc. As mentioned earlier the tyre is guaranteed to be safe at speeds up to 250 km/h and a little more. But considering that most of those premium cars are electronically limited to 250 km/h the MRF ZLO is worthy a tyre to cater to the cars.

    Tyres are available in sizes ranging from the smaller premium cars to the sizeable Audi Q7. Prices for the tyre range from Rs. 8,000 per tyre for the smaller range of ZLOs to Rs. 20,000 per tyre for the biggest MRF ZLO tyre.

    The only worry in MRF’s path is brand perception which in India is one where premium car buyers would not go for an MRF tyre for their car. But that perception will very soon fade, if it exists at all, firstly because the product has been tested and proven to be world class, secondly a lot of those premium cars have entered the used car market now and buyers of used cars would definitely go for a product that is relatively cheaper and yet has the same performance standards.

    MRF also plans to export the ZLO range of tyres from their manufacturing plant in Tamil Nadu to countries like Singapore and others to make its presence felt on a global scale.

    I am sure if priced perfectly in they would compete with C Drives...

    Got the Michelin Primacy LC's in stock size (195/60/15). Left rear tyre was damaged in a freak accident last night. Something hit the wheel but I have no idea what it was. The road was pitch dark at 10 PM so I decided to drive on and stopped a couple of kms ahead at a petrol bunk. Found the rear left tyre with a sidewall cut. So the first business this morning was to get new tyres since the OEM set had done 46k kms so far and the spare was unusable coz its sidewall was patched up some time back. I was looking to replace them in December during my year-end vacation but the change was brought forward.

    All the credit goes to Phew again for encouraging me to empty my pockets on the Primacy LC's. But boy they are super silent at high speeds and the ride is fab. Haven't got a chance to test the grip or braking since tyres are new; so I'll run them in for 500-odd kms and then post back.

    I've tried 36/33, 35/32, 34/31 and 33/30. Liked the Last two options and it also returned better FE. However, would just want to know if these would not damage the tires in any way?
