moralfibre, if that was for me? nope I stick with the fact that the S drives are insane tyres... a loss of just one tyre wouldnt change a whole month of R&D on tyres bro however i do admit that with the way I drive they arent meant for my driving style i should have gotten tyres with lesser traction,if you know what I mean.

Makes sense if you drove your car/any car for that matter which were shodded with S-drives(if you were referring to the S-drives). Did you drive any at all ?

I drove my colleague's OHC Vtec which had Pilot Preceda's and wasn't convinced that it was above the S-drives. Maybe better than the ES-100's and yes this is an ES-100 thread .

OT : ROC how many down as of now ?

Neovas and Pilot Sport(Discontinued) Pilot Sport 2(now available), what is this comparison

Neovas are street race tyres and PS or PS2 super car category.

I am not able to understand racket effect??

those S-drives are insane tyres, I made the right decision, and I'm a very happy user!

I believe that the S-drives have replaced the ES100s and AVS Sport, is it true, can someone clarify this?

Shrivz I dont think that is rite. Coz my friends Baleno has been running on S-drives for quite some time, ES 100's and AVS Sport was in production then.

Nope, the ES100's are still in production & it's the AVS Sports that have been discontinued. Source: Yokohama India.
