I need tyres in the stock size(185/65 R14).
Requirements:1)They should have a sturdy sidewall.
2)Good dry and wet grip.
3)Durable.
4)Low noise.
Based on the opinions of my friends I have shortlisted:
1)Bridgestone Turanza AR-20
+Most(of my friends) say that the Bridgestones have good sidewall protection.
2)GoodYear Eagle F1 GS-D3
+Stock tyres were from the same manufacturer and was abuse friendly.
3)MRF *something*
+Cheap,great sidewall protection and durable.
My order of preference 1>2>3.
Any other recommendations?
I have run 26-27k km on Apollo Acelere 185/65 R14s and they served me well. They looked like they would've lasted another 15k km more easily but i took the plunge and upgraded to Advan Neovas instead. You might want to add the Aceleres to the list.

I had Accelere tyres before the A Drives(the Stepney is still the Accelere) and I liked the A Drives more as I felt that the grip offered by the latter was better.

How are your new Yokos?(Sidewall especially)

The Neovas AD 07s are super grippy tyres. They've already taken one round of track-day beating and holding steady. Too bad these arent available anymore. Also, the AD07s are 195/60/R14.

When i was on the Acelere 185/65/R14, most of the 26k km was on highways. those tyres held good too. I haven't tested/tried the A-Drives to it's hard for me to compare. that's all the inputs from me.
