Samurai, the site also doesn't mention the A539s, which are very much in production and being sold. I think this is a US only site. While I'm not disputing the ES-100 sizing, I wouldn't take this site as gospel.

So, how much did ya pay for these??? I had my eye on these and Bridgestone RE-01R for a long time...
Considering we've already worn out 2 sets of 13s, 1 set of 14s, and 1 set of 15s, and the car is at about 30k kms, I don't think it can get much worse.

What's the retail on one of these? Let's just say we got a deal we couldn't refuse. And no, a Dicor-driving gentleman wasn't involved!

I really want to try out the 01Rs too. Though I think you only get them in 16" and above. Any cars already running them in town?

Absolutely . True to your observations, I voted for Michelin as I have them on my car right now. LOL. I have used MRF, Good Year also. MRF is the worst. Good for trucks & autos, not for the cars.

Your wrong boy , its 2 sets of 14's .. Car has clocked about 25k .. Right now my room is filled with 4 15'' neovas , 5 14'' dunlops , 2 15'' f1's and 3 bridgestone re88's .. Lying in the balcony are 5 13'' ice tyres , 5 13'' stock tyres , 4 14'' eagle f1's = 28 tyres .. Apart from which i have 5 13'' steel rims , 5 13'' stock aura alloys , 5 14'' black steel rims from a swift , 5 15'' corolla rims running on the car (i guess??) .. Got to get rid of these in the next week or so unless i want to get disowned by my parents .. Well at some point or the other the car ran all these tyres or a combination of them .. 13''s and 15''s .. 14''s and 15''s , 13'' and 14''s .. Just praying that this set lasts me for long and doesnt face any abuse from most of these lunatics who take my car out for a spin ..

Exactly!! So when's the free giveaway in Bangy Stuart, lots of people could have some use for those tyres you know? Unless you're looking forward to being disowned by your parents

P.S. Can we have some pictures of what your balcony & room looks like? I know it resembles a scrapyard but still it'll be worth a laugh!!

Well one set of 14'' dunlops and rims are already being gift wrapped for v1p3r .. If anyone wants eagle f1 slicks to practice drifting on track or private (individually owned farms etc) roads get in touch with me ..

Ishaan have already taken a few pics of the tyres and rims .. Just that something is wrong with my phone and refuses to connect via the data cable .. Will send them to one of the boys and make them post it here ..
