    I have changed my stock Goodyear GT3 to Yokohama C-drives.
    I had driven the stock tires for only 100 odd kms but was immediately able to know the difference after getting C-drives.

    They are defininately less noisy for starters and the sidewall is softer than GT3. Other than that its too early to tell about grip.
    But on the whole I am much happy with this upgrade.

    OnT-BHP there is a thread for MRF Z.L.O. tires and its been mostly favorable but there is one report that these tires get very noisy as higher speeds.
    So if comfort and low noise is your prioity I would recommend C-drives.

  3. I am also concerned about the soft sidewalls of C-Drives. I have to face some bad roads in NCR.

    I have gone through MRF ZLO's thread on T-BHP and reviews are good.

    So its now between ZLO & C-Drives.

    The sidewall is very weak. I have a damaged sidewall of one of my tire. If you are planning to drive in NCR region make sure you drive away from the dividers bcoz the sidewall gets damaged mostly because of the girders in dividers.

    For everything else it is C drive all the way. In my 10K of ownership i have not faced any other issue. the grip is awesome on wet roads.
  5. That was my concern. SOFT SIDEWALL.

    Any other options for tyre?

    you can try CONTINENTAL ECO CONTACT PREMIUM i have put them in my fiesta they are excellent in terms GRIP , SIDEWALLS ARE NOT SOFT i have driven around 5K and roads i travel is very bad.
  7. I had a look at Yokohama C & S Drives and Michelin Primacy LC at Reliance Autozone. Sidewalls are too soft. Michelin's were the softest.

    Bridgestone ER-60 were quite good. They din't had MRF ZLO of any size in stock. Was looking for it.

    Check out Bridgestone Turenza... Most of TFIians drive that tire in their car and has been discussed extensively over here.

    I have two damaged c drive tyres...
    Both have got cuts on the side walls due to a stone hit on high speeds...

    Now I'm using Goodyear assurance v rated tyre. That is equally silent but with a stronger side wall ...

    I would recommend this tyre

    But now c drive2 is released . will be using in my other vehicle in a couple of weeks...
    Will update after changing bout the cdrive 2
