    Hi,

    I have @47300 replace my acelleres with C-Drives. Now @ 55000kms i.e after 7700kms I find the tyre other than the noise which has reduced drastically there is no other advantage in this tyre. I always maintain trye pressure @ 32psi.

    I have heard lot of good review about this tyre, but as I donot find any advantage, I would like to know if there is any other way such as different tyre pressure to get the best out of these tyres.

    Thanks

    Kiran

    Apart from road noise the other good thing u get out of it is grip in wet conditions.

    Did by any chance you got a chance to do cornering in wet roads?

    I have C drives and have done 20k with them. They still look with another 20k tread left in them

    As I had changed the tyres after the rains, I did not get a chance to drive or do cornering on wet roads. On dry roads I did not find any difference :).

    I was confiding o replace my GT3 that have clocked 7.5 K KMs with XM1 tyres but now I read about XM2. Can somebody suggest if they are using either of these. My priority is the comfort, ride and handling. I don't care about road noise, grip etc.
  5. You should have replaced the tyres as soon as you got delivery, now for a 7.5k kms old tyre you will be lucky if you get 1k for each tyre..

    If your primary concern is comfort go for Michelin primary lc, you wont get the required dimension in xm2 which is has a balance of everything.

    My suggestion to you would be wait for atleast for 30k kms and then go for michs..

    I am using C Drive, already done 42+k km, and good for 5k km more.
    I enjoyed this type, silent and nice grip. However few members had bad experience as well, specially in water.
    Better go for Michelin XM2 or P3ST.
