I just did some research and frankly none of these are special enough to warrant an import unless you're getting them dirt cheap. The Advan's are actually quite run of the mill while the ES100 has seen better days. BFG looks to be the pick of the lot here.

But again, why would you want to import a tyre when something equally good (if not better) is available here??

Done! Got myself BF Goodrich Gforce Pro 185/60/14 with K-speed ultra light 4 spoke alloys (I know most of the guys here hate these alloys, but they are damn light. I like them). Still haven't driven after the change. Will give you a review once I get to drive the car.

This is what I got.



The g-Force Sport was developed to provide crisp and responsive handling in both wet and dry conditions. Like all summer tires, the g-Force Sport is not intended to be driven in near freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
On the outside, the g-Force Sport molds BFGoodrich's BlackTech tread compound into a directional tread design with large independent shoulder tread blocks, g-Hook intermediate ribs, two continuous center ribs and two wide circumferential rain channels to blend superior dry cornering, capable wet traction and straight-line stability.
Internally, the g-Force Sport features twin, high tensile steel belts that are further strengthened by BFGoodrich's ETEC System (Equal Tension Containment) spiral-wrapped reinforcement to stabilize the tread area enhancing handling and high-speed capability. A dimensionally stable polyester cord body and g-control sidewall inserts help resist lateral deflection to generate cornering force and stability.

Well, in terms of steering response and ride quality, I feel they're far better than my previous Yoko AVS sports. Tyre noise is a little bit more than Yokos, but not that much. Handling and cornering is great. I paid 3500 per tyre.

Are the Yokos A460 available in the market now? What will be the price for 195/55/R15 and will these be OK to fit in the OHC?

Adman, can you direct me to the guy you bought them from? I'm looking for some tyres as well.
