I guess Neova's would have the best grip among the tyres being discussed here. Will they therefore 'restrict' initial acceleration more?
Neovas should cost u around 5.5k + per tyre.

Hi Guys,

Need a set of 5 Yokohama ES-100 195/60 - R15, Will be picking them up from Bangalore. I see that this tyre is no longer listed on the Yokohama website, is it still available and at what price? It would be nice if someone can help me with this.

Thanks,
Anshu

Does Yokohama have an India specific website - like Michelin India - Home?

Any other tires in 195/60-14 which offer a blend of decent ride quality packed with decent grip?
Djay Yokohama has S-drive in 185/55/14

Default Re: Yokohama ES-100 195/60/14 - Prices in Pune

I am at Pune. Was looking around for Yokohama tyres for my ford fiesta. After a bit of online research and suggestions from dealers locked down on between ES100 185/65/14 and A drive 175/65/14. Former was promised to have better grip by the dealer near my home, but some of the other dealers said would reduce the ground clearance and create problems when car is loaded. Hence settled for the latter today which though was not an upsize but was good enough for me, as suggested, since I am mostly driving to office and back.

A drive 175/65/14 cost me 17800 incl weights, wheel balancing and the works.
ES100 185/65/14 was coming to 19000

Hope I have made the right decision.

One question though - do alloy wheels improve the life of tyres and give better mileage and comfort? the dealer was pushing me for HRS taiwanese alloy wheels as well, but I did not want to she'll out another 15000 for it at the moment.
