Please call up and confirm with Mr. Ranveet on the no I had given in the earlier post. They are bulk dealers for many parts and accesories.

I called up on the given number and even spoke to Mr.Ravneet inquiring about Yokohama AVS ES100's in 175/70-R13 size for my Esteem . He said that Yokohama AVS ES100's are available only in 14" and above

Yokohama doesn't make ES100 below 14 inch, not sure how you got it.

Apparently the rally driver found these tyres to be so grippy that he decided to change them to AVS sport instead .. Havent yet put them on .. Does anyone else have any reviews of these tyres ??

The only thing that this tyre wouldnt give is a long life...but yeah who cares!!!

So, how much did ya pay for these??? I had my eye on these and Bridgestone RE-01R for a long time...

There are very few, regular (By this I mean, people that love their cars and change tyres once or twice in their lives for the same car) people that can buy a set of tyres, with some/a little research and then offer a critical, or negative view on them.

Once you've spent your money on any performance tyre brand, your brain automatically tells you, it's the best brand there is. And you vote for it here.

This poll essentially can be answered technically (correctly) by a handful of people on this forum, the rest will automatically vote for the tyre brand they have on their cars.

Absolutely correct Sam. Another problem is that for most people tyre changes are every 2-3 years minimum so till then whatever tyre they are using is the best. It's only when they get to experience a new tyre on their car that they realise which one better & which one is worse. Even then few people can diffrentiate between them.
