Hi,

I have been using the es-100 on my lancer for over a month now and I am very happy with them. They also look really cool and handle really well. If you guys plan on getting es-100's I would say "Good choice".

Cheers

Yokohama is a very good tyre....But finding 18" & 19" is very hard. I am searching for 265/35R 18 but not able to get

PJ

PJ - That size is not officially imported by YIL & that is partly why there is no availability. Why not try Michelin or Yoko from the gray market?

Any idea how a worn out Yoko ES-100 should look like? I mean, the tread are few and far between. Whats the decent depth for the treads to wear out before the tyre needs to be changed?

As per tyre experts the min tread depth is 1.6mm. People keep on running it far after that. Mine has run a lil more than 19K, still has plenty of tread in it. So unless you have covered more than that you need not worry.
