The Ad07 is absolutely epic. No question about it. It is available only in 205/55 R15 though.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...-ad-07s-d.html (Got AD-07s :D) See this thread for reviews and opinions on AD07s.

Default Is ES-100 still in production?

I've read here in the forum that the Yokomama ES-100 is no longer in production. Even the official website does not catalog it. But the Yokohama dealer in Coimbatore (Adhiti Enterprises) stocks it and says that they are very much in production.
Kindly clarify.

Gunner Fan, 3100/- is a good price for 185/70 R14.

Wildsdi5530 --- It doesnt matter. As long as you get a relatively new tyre(check the manufacturing date), it wont matter.

thanks nikhil.
as far as looking at relatively new tyres - am i right to believe that we should avoid tyres with mfg date > 2-3 yrs. i read somewhere that the tyre rubber is good for almost 6 yrs frm date of mfg and i assume that even with good mileage per day, one would need to change tyres in 2-3 yr window period.

Nikhil, would you recommend Yokohoma ES-100 over Michelin XM1+ for my Honda City ZX Gxi considering the huge price difference?

Well, if a tyre sidewall buldges simply because of a bad road - i would associate that with a manufacturing defect, because then why have th other tyres not bulged considering they are subjected to near similar environments.

Default Good and Bad experiences with Yoko

Good Experience first:

Bought Yoko S- Drive 205/55/R16 for Laura - Good Price 40-50% cheaper than the only other option michellin. Very grippy, very good looks. - Done 25000 kms - plan to use till 35,000 kms.

Bad Experience 1-

The S-Drives developed a bubble in the first month itself, and though it was replaced, it required a lot of haggeling and the Yoko guys wanted me to pay 10% of the cost of the tyre for usage (when the usage had been less than 1000 kms) that was not acceptable to me as it meant that the tyre life is only an absurd 10,000 kms. Negotiated my way out of it but it left a sour taste.

Bad Experience 2-

For the Safari, read good reviews of the Yoko Geolander ATS and went down to the same shop where i had procured the S-Drives earlier to buy them inspite of also reading they they appear thin (slim side walls)

The Shop where I had procured them last time did not have them, nor did 2 other shops which had them last time. The Web site was not too help full on this either. So gave up on them for availablity issue and went for the michellins.

2-3 years is a little too much. I would say anything upto one year is ok.

If you want grip, the ES100s are better. But the Conti CPC2 is even better. If oyu want comfort, then the Michelin XM1+ in 185/65 R14 is the best bet.

That is a very bad comparison. There are so many factors. First of all you need to consider that each tyre is constructed differently. Not all of them are constructed with the sole aim of surviving Indian roads at whatever speed YOU deem to be ok. They are made with comfort, mileage, fuel efficiency, grip, etc in mind.

If you want a tyre that can cope with everything, just get MRFs, Apollos or JKs. Why bother with any of the imported brands?

Default Conti CPC

Is the Continental CPC available at Coimbatore?? Any price estimate?? Also I've heard the new Apollo models are good.

CPC2 is should be easily available. If you want, drop me a PM, I'll give you a phone number.

Aceleres are good, but not in the same league as the CPC2s. Price would be around 4k for 195/60 R!4. Cheaper than XM1+, but more expensive than Yoko, Apollo....

Could not find yokos for the Safari while it was looking for them, they guy who sold me yoko for the Laura had stopped selling them and gave service support as a reasons and the other guy who too had quoted last time too had shifted to michellins, looked in a few more tyre shops and could not get yokos in any of these and ultimately went for michellins.

That too a repeat buyer who was looking for the yoko brand.

so contrary to the thread start name, Yoko may be hear but are they really. Dont see the retail presence and availablity to a sufficient extent.
