Yes that's an option too, but i can't decide which tyre should i select
I've find these tires so for in correct size-
Precada - 6k
MXV8 -5.8K
ES 100 - 4K
Direzza - Feedback is not good

Ok i'll consider , lastly which one is better MXV8(5.8k) V/S MX1(5.2K) ?- MX1 is lauched in 2004 as compared to MXV8 In 2002 & still MXV8 is expensive i thought old old stuff cost's less.

P:S ES-100 thread looks sick , all other tyres thread is just normal .

U mean the XM1s right??
I don't think XM1s are available in 15". Both XM1 and MXV8 are comfort tyres with minimum road noise.
XM1 range starts from 13" whereas MXV8 starts from 15".

MXV8 and XM1 no comparison.

MXV8 highly comfort oriented
XM1 Mass market subsitute for OEM tyres till c segment.

ES-100 one of the finest performance tyre available in India, very good at handling, traction but low on comfort..

Performance and comfort both???? Only possible in case of 17" and above
Tyres like P-Zero Russo, Advan Sports, PS2 etc.

MXV8 will higher on comfort, but a good tyre...

In Bridgestone there is no tyre in India that combines comfort and performance.

Choice is yours.....

Good luck.

I've installed Goodyear F1 GS-D2's today unexpectet really , they make too much noise as compred to stock goodyear NCT-5 , & ride becomes harsh & steering wheel is feels heavy, Didn't liked Michelin MXV8 due to it's pattern & didn't bought Yokohama ES-100 due to non availability in 205/65/15 , overall i'm not satisfied with this F1 tyre , Manufacturing date is 17th week of 2006 , i've requested shopkeeper to get me newer stock or either gsd3 but that was out of luck today .
