    May be the thread pattern but there may be lot of difference in the rubber compound used.

    My suggestion, Go for either of three below -
    Yoko - C Drive
    Yoko - AVS db
    Michelin Primary LC

    All are tested and reputed tires.
    Going to Pirelli, must be careful, since these tyres are not sold more, the stock might be very old.

  7. Very valid point Ravi sir, I will keep it in mind while going for tire hunt this weekend.

    1)Yoko C drives/AVS DB
    2) MRF ZLO
    3) Pirelli Cinurato p6
    4) Nexen N 2000
    5) Michelin Primacy LC

    Now the economist in me will take front seat,I need to find the VFM tire in this.

    I disagree. I have experienced a LOT of tires and found Michelins to be the best in terms of BOTH wet and dry grip, and at BOTH low and high speeds. That to me is overall test of grip for a tire.
    Completely in agreement to this suggestion. It seems to be in order of expenditure as well! So as per your budget you can choose.

    Save yourself some tension and do not read/believe the hearsay about soft sidewall and other BS. A lot depends on your driving style. I have seen people burst sidewalls in GT3/ER60 because they don't want to slow down on bad roads/potholes. So keep that in mind while deciding.
