Does Tire rack have tyre comparison chart for tyres sold in India?

Yes. Most of those tyres are available in India.

Not specifically.
Currently they cater only to the U.S., so you'll have to pull up specs of the specific tyres (or rather tires ) sold in India that you're interested in and compare them yourself.

hey
after reading about the yokohomas in this thread, iv come to the conlusion that they are better if not on par with the bridgestones, goodyears, and michelins. am i getting ahead of myself or is that partially correct?
also, what would be the best bet for the sx4 (205/60/R16); im getting a buyback of Rs.3200 a tyre (OE - JKTyres; forgotten the name)- trying to figure out if thats a good enough buy back amount.

I had nothing to do with this. Seriously. I am neither that rich that I could gift someone a set of free Neova's or give mine.

but then does it make sense to stick to the vectras? i drive on the dnd up and down pretty much everyday so high speed and taking corners at speeds slightly faster than normal is something i do a bit; so im just concerned about how good these tyres are because someone in this thread said that indian tyres are not suited for speeds in excess of 120kmph.

So in Yokos, listed below from what I gather is the rating of the (popular) yoko tires.

1) Advan Neovas
2) Advan Sports
3) S Drive
5) ES 100s

Can someone add some average rate per tyre for these?

Ok guys who-ever has money please pick up Neova's and the poor one's like me pick up S-drives. No offense to anyone here, just kidding folks.

I haven't used the Neova's so no comments. People who have used it claim that they the best,hence no further questions asked.

S-Drives are pretty good and the ride isn't that harsh on the 50 profiles.Cheaper in comparo to the Neova's. Period.

I don't know anyone on TBHP who has Advan Sport tyres on their ride. It's just one of those perception things.

The Neovas are better gripping, atleast in the dry. I haven't had the chance to really push the S.Drives in the wet, so I can't say. But they're a close 2nd. But the S.Drives are way more comfortable, long-lasting, and quieter to boot. I'd pick the S.Drives for street and the Neovas for track, or if I had a loud car anyway.
