guys i got apollo acelere 185/60 R 14 for my indica turbo. can you suggest me how much air pressure is recommended in this!

the max psi as printed on tyres is 35 , so by 10% rule i got 32 filled and car seems to bounce. not too happy. would be better if some one can help me out rather than i go about 29,30,31,32 in trial and error method.

Man, its like comparing differents classes of tyres...Call apollo themselves and I'm sure anyone in senior management would agree on yoko's quality being far superior... lets do a stress test on them in the next 5000 kms.

if you are driving alone keeo the tyre pressure at 28/29psi and if loaded,keep it at 30psi.

guys thanks for input. the point i want to make is in my stock tyres -bridgestone s322 165/65 R14 (tube)company sticker indicated 28psi for front and 24psi for rear tyres.
now its apollo tubeless 185/60 and max psi printed is 35, so by 10% rule i tried 32 as well as 30 psi.

should i go for like 32 in front and 28 in rear and maintain difference of 4 as in my stock tyres or in tubeless its different!

For the 14" the best would be 30 28 when unloaded, and 30 all around when loaded.
I have the 13" 185/60 Apollo. Before this I had 13" 185/60 Potenza's
I always keep around 30-32psi in all 4 tires.
Exact is difficult because of heating etc., etc.,

Yo men my 2 cents

Having used both tyres guess I have the right to comment, I know am a little too late but still

S-drives

Brilliant set of tyres. Noise ain't too high and the ride isn't hard with the 50 profiles.

I have driven my car around quite a bit since I got these and they simply are splendid. The car feels glued to the road while doing high speeds and while taking corners there's no squeal of any kind.

A little too expensive and sells at about 4600/- a piece.



Apollo Acelere's

This tyre is truly VFM for people on a budget. I used this tyre for my recent drive for about 1300 kms in both good and roads which was in shambles.

The Acelere's never let me down. I pushed my car to 170kmph and these tyres did a brilliant job.
No braking issues, no squeaks and above all no noise.

These tyres make for good daily driving use , I have become a fan of these and will continue to use them for my highway driving when the roads are really bad.

4600 / - ??

Last weekend upgraded from S322 to Yoko ES-100 (195 / 60). Got them for 3070 / -per piece. Got all for 9280 / - after deducting 3000 for old tyres (10600 km run)

The ride is fabulous....noise level has gone down to a great extent.

We're using Apollo Acelere Sportz - an assymmetric pattern tyre. The size i'm using is 185/60/14 and I love the grip and the lack of tyre noise. These tyres are also rated for 240 KMPH - is that V rated? However this is in comparison with stock Bridgestone S322s which were nearing the end (had about 5-10k of life left, but i lost one good tyre out of four good ones, and got all replaced). Will i recommend them? - yes i will! Have i driven on Yokos? - No i havent. So my recommendation is biased.

Riju has 205/50, it might be priced a bit more but the difference here looks quite high about 1500. Is tyres sell that cheap in Mumbai?

Riju and firebird has two different tyres in different sizes.

1095/60 R14 ES 100s cost around 3200 in bangy. So diff is not that much. S drives cost much more that ES 100s

Riju has 205/50-15 Yoko S drives and 195/60-14 Apollo Aceleres. He doesn't have ES100.

Did u buy the ES100 with B&W?? The best price quote i have heard till now for 195/60-14 ES100 is 3200..

Good morning mate . Please read , I mentioned Yoko S-drives and not the ES 100's, and this thread is about the S-drives and Acelere's.
