Even this was from Snapdeal. Prices of both these tyres are under 5K.

A friend ordered tyres 2 weeks back, NCT5 I believe from SnapDeal. No updates for a week then order was cancelled citing out of stock.

I'd rather pay more and get tyres instantly at a shop rather than being tortured with my money for 2 weeks and finally land up dejected. And still no tyres.

Thats not the case. Its the taxation part for which the tyres cost less. Obviously while I am buying I will check the manufactured month before closing the deal.

Hi Nikhil, did you get a chance to try these out? I'm deciding between Yokohama C drives in this size vs. Michelin P3 ST in 195 x 65 x 15. Your comments about these made me pause to consider the Z-Lo's also.

I'd be eager to learn your opinion of the Z-Lo's in terms of handling, noise and comfort. Thanks in advance!

I could see that after running around 20000 Kms, road noise is increased. Anyone else experienced this? Or should I look for some other reason for this?

Using zlo for 35k kms + , and I am buying them again as my next set. The grip level is just awesome . If you take care of the tyres , they should last around 40k kms . I am really happy with these tyre

ZLo 195/60/r14 for 10K on a Maruti Versa, a very sweet tyre. No issues so far and supperbbb grip levels. As with all soft compound tyres, it is mandatory to take extra care during the first 300 or so kms. Should take care not to slam the newish tyres into some crater or pothole, rest the tyres shall take care of themselves. It has changed the highway dynamics of this car entirely, far more grip and composed ride now and overtakes Innovas very easily.

What was the size and profile ?
Could you please post pictures of the tires ?
What do you mean by care ? Does it have a soft side wall ?

Silent for sure, I am not sure about the rugged part.
mileage is not a concern, 35-40k kms is more than enough for me.

I have been completely thrashing the tyres since the last two years in the brio and there is hardly any treadwear to speak of. Considering the grip level that is pretty extraordinary to be honest.

As far as I know, Potenza GIIIs are NO longer in production. It's succeeded by MY 02.

Z.L.Os have soft sidewalls. The advantages are low noise (upto 100 kmph) and a comfy ride compared to the Potenza GIIIs. I have 185 70R14 on my Swift. Though grip levels are good, I am feeling more body roll on corners.

Should last 40K is what my dealer told me. Not sure of the long term performance as my car has done around 8K kms and I have driven ONLY a small portion of it.

GIIIs were quite rugged & noisy though; 55K kms on front tyres & 83K on the rear ones (car was driven mostly in Bangy).
