    How is the breaking and road noise with ZLO? I though side walls are a bit harder then yoko C-drives.

    I was running with 185/70 R14 A-drives from 6500 km to 36700 km in my Punto. Very grippy. A bit of noise is there. Cost should be around 4k per tyre now.
    Now im running with 195/70 r14 XM1+. Silent!!!. No noise. But not as grippy as A-drives. Most expensive. Squeals in my parking lot when taking curves fast. A-drives never squealed
    Turenza is also good. Priced in between A-drives and XM1+. A-drives will be better than Acceleres any day.

    Dude you missed out an option - 205/55/R16. I mistakenly selected the R15 option!

    Do you see any improvement in the GC. How is the handling? Do you see any loss in pickup? Does the tyre touch the arch when fully turned or fully loaded?
    Thanks in advance

  9. Upgraded to Michelin Primacy LC 195/65 R15s. Road noise is virtually non existent and ride quality has improved noticeably :)

    Upgraded to Michelin Primacy LC 205/55/16 on my Tejt+. Awesome tires, super silent and excellent grip. Needless to mention, best possible ride quality too!
