Not necessarily grip & noise can be there in one tyres & there could be a grippy but relatively low-noise tyre too.

Alternatives are: Yokohama AVS Sport, Michelin Pilot Preceda, Dunlop Sport 9000

To have a very precise comparison one has to drive the same car with different tyres but of same size.

I've driven cars with GIII & AVS sport...Both were extremely grippy n was fun throwing the car around the corners...

Yet to test the Pilot Preceda's......Ishan where are u ??

I heard from a car dealer here that Michelins are the most silent tyres. Dont know how it fares on the grip front when compared to GIII and Yokohoma

HEY,aren't you using michelin pilot precedas?
anyway a good alternative would be yoko es-100's
205/60/15 would be good on your corolla rims.

We would appreciate if you dont open multiple threads for what is pretty much the same topic of discussion. Please continue your discussion in the previous thread (Qualis upsize) that you had created.

Thanks
