Wolf Bro, my saviour.. Thanks . Adit paid Rs.2900 not Rs.3900.

I am using AVS ES100 and am impressed overall. Only thing pending was to test in wet conditions, I took it for a spin last night in the rain and the grip is amazing.

Sorry Santosh, that price made me drop my keyboard. 2900 is a pretty good rate. Where did you go for the tyres?

Yup, me too had the same question in mind. Are the ES100's available in 13's especially 175-70-R13's for my Esteem????

And could someone throw light on how it compares with the Bridgestone Potenza Grid!!!'s

No worries vip3r, I would have reacted the same way if any team-bhpian was getting fleeced.

According to my tyre dealer-friend, ES100 13 inchers are not made. However Yokohama A539 are available in 185/60/R13 and 175-60-R13.http://www.motor-world.co.uk/kroozin...rod_id=6180IMO, I did not like the pattern. Would prefer the Bridgestone G3s to this. To me looks also matter.hey prince85, why don't you upsize to 14-inchers and go in for 185/60/R14s like I did. Have a look at the wheels on my Esteem in my team-bhp garage.

No sweat guys and you are welcome Kb100.

What exactly are UniDirectional tyres
Uni - directional tyres are tyres which will rotate only in one direction unlike ordinary stock tyres. Uni-directional tyres will have a marking on the sidewalls, which says "Rotation" on an arrow and these tyres have to be installed in such a way that they rotate only in that direction. Also these tyres once installed cannot be rotated to the other side. For eg.: You cannot change the left side tyres to the right side as the tread will rotate in the opposite direction.

Uni - directional tyres are normally performance oriented tyres with high grip levels.

Dr., I have never rotated my palio's tyres the normal way even with stock tyres but why do you state that normal rotation should not be done on a Palio with stock tyres? Or are your specific only to the GTX as the spare is an ordinary steel wheel and the others are alloys?

Thanks for your concern and I wear my seatbelts.

Default PALIO GTX Tyre rotation.

Dear 5u3Zero, sorry I should have qualified my statement by mentioning that the same side rotation is for the GTX which I and you own because of the spare being steel wheel. I also note you have a conical air filter and a custom exhaust system. Is the cone using cold air intake and is the exhaust from automech and does the two improve overall torque or is it tuned for higher RPM power. Fuel effecieny be damned as I run on autogas from IOC. Please please send me private PM as I am contamplating purchasing a header unit form automech. Bye and nice to know you wear your seatbelts.

Mod NOTE: Kindly ask this via PM or other relevant thread. Let's not go off topic here.

Sorry about the confusion guys. Just to clarify what I meant....Yoko ES100s look and perform exceptionally well but are not available in 13" for prince85's car, so he should go in for the G3s and not Yoko A539 since the tread pattern of the A539 does not look good.
