The Michelins available in India are not european made. They are from Thailand or somewhere close by. They may not be bad but just a point to note. The Yokohamas are imported from Japan.

I got a set of S.drives 205/55/16 for 6.5K a piece to replace my Dunlop SP2000 OEMs this weekend. One more reason to go for Yokos is that they are the only "sport oriented" tires in that size available I know of locally. Closest PP2s are 225/50/16. Potenza GIII is now made in India and they come in 215/55/16.

Didn't realize how much the dunlops had worn out until I put the S.drives on. I am no tire expert, they do look good is all I can say at this point. I did feel the steering to be a touch smoother/lighter on the new tires but that may be purely because of my over zealousness in trying to notice improvements.
