Sorry to bump an old thread, but how's the feedback for the Yokohama S drives?

After Abijeet suggested the 195/50R15s for my OHC Type 2, i was wondering if anyone had feedback/suggestions on them? Anyone have the latest prices?

Also whats the best alloys to pair with them?

I've got S-drives 195/50 R-15s running with Lenso alloys on my 1.6 Ikon. The ride, grip, and handling are lovely. There's also very little road noise, so overall I'm very happy with the tyres. My only concern is the bite that they have under extreme braking.... the Ikon doesn't have any ABS, and I get the impression that the tyres are a little skid-happy.

Well, even Fiat India went without a website for a year or so around 2005-06, one of the reasons why I dropped the idea of Petra.

Yeah its really apalling! i usually like to do my research at home before going to the dealer. Any 'little' knowledge before going to the shop at least ensures they dont take you for a ride.

Also, why dont they have MRP on tyres (or do they?) as on other products...every tyre shop is quoting his own fancy price?!

Tyres made in India do have their MRP printed on the sticker. I dont think you need to worry abt people charging more than MRP. The tyre market in India is very very competitive. No one sells even close to MRP. Trust me on this.

There is ONE price that is fixed by a certain company. Be it Michelin/Yoko/BS, but no one sells at this as there will always be one person who will be selling for below this recommended price.

Price varies from shop to shop depending on the quality of service they give.

I doubt it. I think the only size available is 225/60 R15. Even the company guy confirmed it when you met him.

Yeah I remember but I thought maybe since then they launched it. They don't have a website so it is impossible to know otherwise what is officially available.

Only option is PP2 for corolla Altis 205/60-15. What's the approx price for those?

There's no touring/comfort tyre like the Primacy LC in that size.
