Checked the rates with a couple of dealers .
Yokohama AVS sport is available @ 205/55 R16 @ Rs 5500.
I dont think i will UPSIZE the tyre as it will dip the performance a bit , and as far as grip is concerned 205/55 is sufficient i feel.
What say people ?

Fantastic tyres. But remember that in case u get a tyre bulge or cut then there's every possibility that u might not get one AVS sport tyre replacement in future as its production has been stopped.

I think u are right.

You got a point there .... but i geuss Yokohamas are less prone to a bulge / cut ? (as they are made of an harder compound) as compared to bridgestones.

I know the S drives are very good tyres but i haven't had any reviews abt db S2 and I don't think anyone's using those here in the forum.

Are you sure the AVS have been discontinued? Maybe only in a few markets.

And about this production-direction thingy, if someone's got a 6-9 month old stock, Karan is good to go.

Falkens are known for their short life and pretty unpopular in our club.
