I have been happy with S322 on my petra. 185/65R14 stock. Decnt comfort, no skids (only once in rainy season, but could bring the vehicle under control). @ 28 psi the ride and handling is good.

At the moment Michelin, Yokohama are better than goodyear tyres.....
In Bridgestone Potenza GIIIs are very good.. I can vouch on that....

For which car do u need tyres for?? What size???

Fiat adventure size is 195/70 14 or 195/75 14 or 185/75 14 among these the last two are diificult to find in india. bridge has RE-88 for 195/70 14 but are very bad according to some bhpians here.

My car in US had Michelin all season X some thing I forgot, drove it for more than 3 yrs. The ride quality was no doubt good. The difference being, 150 BHP/ 250 ft-lb car on Michelins (vs) 100 HP/ 147 Nm Bridgestones.

Yet to get a feel of how Michelin/ Petra combination works, may be partly depends on the car too.

You could be marginally better off with MRF, CEAT & Apollo.

Goodyear Eagle Venturas.

Low noise, great ride, great price, superb grip, nice design, great tyre life.

Never tried MRF, Ceat, Apollo. I drove up to 150 KMPH on full load on S322s they seem ok. Went over curves around 100 KMPH, jumped over speed brakers at similar speed, no issues. The only complaint. if at all is they are a lil noisy on some kind of roads.
