nitroxx I am pretty sure that AVS sports atleast was being manufactured when S-drives was in the market.

Coz my friend got the S-drives installed In Feb 2007 and I think both AVS sport and ES 100 werent out of production then.

ES100 is still in production in Japan but is slowly being replaced by the S-Drives. But it'll still be around for some time & production is still on.

195/60-14 = Rs 3400 so 185 should around Rs 3200 per tyre.

Both are performance tyres.
In Yokohama ,Aspec A300 would be the best choice for city driving comfort.

Default Yoko ES 100 on the track

Last weekend I put the Baleno on the Kari track in coimbatore for a couple of laps. This was just to test the car and the tyres.

Tyres: ES100s 195/60 R14
Mileage: 22000kms

After running 22k am almost on the brim of a tyre change. The tyres may run another 4-5K at the max.

Was a lil apprehensive about taking the car out on old tyres. But for what they are they handled pretty well. The tyre profile is high for the track. Anybody who puts their car on the track would be better off with 15 inchers.

There were two corners which puts the tyres to their ultimat grip

1. The C1: This is at the end of the straight and you carry a lot of speed into the corner.
2. The Bowl: The last sweeping corner before the straight. Lots of corner speed and you balance the throttle for traction.

The tyres where screeching for most part of the track. You are sliding nice at C1 and on the bowl you are sliding controlled by the throttle input. The grip is very good for a road tyre. The slide is predictable controlled by the throttle. Lots of road noise, you can hear the car screeching from far off.

These are better off on highways rather than on the track or the ghats. Since it has a straight sidewall, it scores lower than tyres with a rounded sidewall for taking corners. Around 1.5mm of the sidewall was eaten during the cornering antics around Kari track. What i liked about the tyre was the predictability of the tyre. Ofcourse this is no pure tarmac, give is a hint of loose gravel and its gonna let loose.

This tyres seems build for the highways. So let it be.

25K kms is a pretty less lifespan for the Yoko tyres. Is it because of all the hard driving or that's the life they come with?
