Are Advan sports or neovas available in 14 inchers? Sadly 14 inchers have on ES100 as an option.

P.S ES100 is around 3200 in bangalore, checked today.

Yes, Sports are different from Neova's. While the Sports are mostly available officially (I am told) the Neova's are available in the grey market only.

Mohit, Neova's are available in 14''s.

Yup infact with the company officially in India the prices have gone up i guess. The cost for 195/55/15 ES100 is 3800

Any rough idea how much do Neova's cost in the grey for 15inchers 195 or 205?

Works out to roughly 5k a piece. But pretty hard getting it in the grey also. Most of the grey market tires (atleast what I have seen till date) are pretty old ones. You'll be better off buying new rubber (2007 make) ones from the authorized dealer.

Is there a thread that compares the various Tyres. I was looking for a comparison between

Yokohama ES100
Bridgestone Potenza G3
Michelin Pilot Preceda PP2
Goodyear Eagle F1 etc.

In terms of performance in wet-dry lateral grip and traction and offcourse wear.

If there isn't a thread regarding the same, would it make sense to have a fresh one for that.

Yes it would, but then again these things are subjective. Head over to Tire Rack, they have this all sewn up.

Yeah, airlifting a tyre costs that much. I had made some enquiries for a couple of friends with fast cars, and we were all shocked.

What tyres and what size are you looking at? I could try and help out.
