Went in for ES100 for my elantra last november, they have loads of grip compared to previous Hankook set.They have seen 34000kms till now and might see another 3-4k before replacement.

I got yokohama ES100 installed on a friend's verna last year,the tyres were bald @ 27000kms,he was looking for a more comfortable tire this time so i recommended him yoko c-drive.

Would i recommend these tyres?YES, they are very good value for money,i bought mine for 3300 bucks a piece,they are now available with B&W for ~4400 bucks.

Anna I think it used to sell for at about 3400 IIRC. However why do you need them coz am sure you will only find old stock.

@danalalan - where did you get those prices from?
I checked for 195/60R14 in Mumbai and they were around 3200/tyre.

I was running with a nail in my tyre for the past 3 weeks. This tyre really held up. Must apprciate it towards the tail end of its life.

At 34500 kms on the tyres, I bid farewell to the ES100s. Am I the one with the highest mileage on them? Pretty good tyres for the money paid.

Hi i am planning to change my swifts swift tyre to 185/70/R14 and looks like yoko is cheaper than michellin with almost same performance.

But i guess there are lots of model in it like A drive c drive ES and so on,can anyone give me a brief on these so that i will be able to decide on these.

Thanks

I'm sure this has been discussed many times on the forum, but here goes:

A-Drives are primarily "jack of all trade" tyres with focus on comfort and economy. They're pretty silent, and the most inexpensive of the lot. I have A-Drives on my Indica. They seem to have changed the ride and handling altogether from the previous crap Goodyears.

C-Drives are the perfect all rounder tyres. Good balance of comfort, noise and sport, slightly more expensive than the A-drives.

ES100s are more sport oriented tyres. A lot of Kolkata tbhpians use them. Very sport oriented tyre, although personally I don't find them outstanding. Another problem is, due to the tread design, a lot of small stone-chips tend to stick into the grooves and you have to manually take them out.

Ultimately its your choice on what features you're looking for.

Yokohama ES 100s are not available in 185/70 R14. In 185/70 R14, only A drives are available....

There! I made your life simpler!

I have ES 100s in 185/60R14 on my car. They have worn out in 22500 Kms. are they still available in this size?

Is this early wear or is the life of the ES 100 longer?
