The best that I've seen, Busa. I've heard this from a couple of other people too.

downforce, you know the usual, butt-dyno and butt-skidpad tests.

I've heard. The PP1 or 2? Michelins are certainly brilliant in the wet. I remember being blown away by the Certis on a Qualis, almost 4 years ago.

Yeah V1p3r even the Energy XM1's are quite good in the rain, the dunlops dont help the ride quality much though.

P.S I have edited your name in the previous post.

The PP1 is not great on wet. Infact that was the number one complaint for the tyre which Michelin corrected in PP2. The PP2 is absolutely brilliant. On my recent hyderabad trip I was doing more than 120 on many not so good stretches of roads with potholes full of water. There was no incident of aquaplaning at all.

I though we were discussing about the Yoko's .

Finished a 550kms drive with my Yoko S Drives. I must say they perform exceptionally well.

Cornering was simply awesome and no squeals from the tyres.
Leaps ahead of the old GSD II's.

Very true .. got a ride in a baleno with 15" dunlops .. ride was not as great as the lower profile neovas on mclarens car.Exceptional grip though.

I feel the es100 have lived their life.What other options do we have in the same range?

Or AVS Sport, cost around the same but 10% better as v1p3r said. Also S drives or Advan Sports.

No i was not referring to my car.In the market i feel the es100s have lived their life.It would be a wiser option option to put in that extra dough and buy AVS sports/S-drives as you say.

AVS sport are fantastic tyres. High level grip and decent ride quality with minimum road noise.

Kevin, you really ought to drive a car with good tyres.

The AVS Sports are now out of production, and have been for a couple of months atleast.
