you can try Yokohama S-Drives in 195-55-15 unless you have already run a set of these! Maxis MAZ1s good from what i have read / heard. i think Nitrous recommended MAZ1s when i was looking for new tyres.

There is a review here: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...xis-tires.html (How good are Maxxis tires)

I am getting the MAZ1s as an upgrade. I already tested them in our BHPian Sathe46's FiestaS who recently moved from NCT5 to these. Really made me feel how crappy the CPC2s really are!

I would strongly advice against these tires, the only good thing may be they are good in the wets when new. Thats about it!

What other option do I have for the S? MAZ1 or the A-Drives :-(
My friend has Michelin PP2 in his Civic and they are just 2 months old and have done around 4-5k km. Even they lock and squeal on heavy braking at 140-150. Rather i have not seen any car or tyre except for PP1 that never locked or made any squealing noise under hard braking. And yes i am talking about cars equipped with ABS here.

I dint try to do anything at that speeds either mate! I am talking about my experience within the city limits where the best speed I can normally do is not above 80KMPH and I hope its understood when I say ABS kicks in earlier than normal on daily city use.

I have only shared my experience with CPC2 for 24,000+ KMs and the Maxxis for a few odd KMs TD in a similar FiestaS. I am really looking for options which are better than the CPC2. Your sarcasm doesnt help me in anyway. If you can share a genuine experience it would be much useful for all!

Need suggestion from tyre gurus...I have a swift diesel which has done 60000kms and is due for tyre replacement. I am not able to decide between Yoko C drive and CPC2 size 195/55/15. My priority is excellent dry grip, handling and comfort.

I drive on city and highway mix, lots of portholes and broken roads( typical of mumbai
) and drive fast . I want best of comfort, performance ,safety form side wall cuts and cuts from potholes and lesss noise.
Or should I go for any good Indian tyre , please suggest .
Looking forward

The correct size is 195/60-15. I would suggest the Yoko C drive over the CPC2.

If you want to drive fast on broken roads, get MRF ZV2K. If you want todrive fast over good roads but slow down and take care of your Tyres over bad roads, go for either the PLC or the Yoko C drive. Yoko ES100 is an outdated model. I won't recommend it. The V550 is a good tyre.
MY01 is not in stock in most places. I hear it's decent. It's being imported in large numbers through the grey market.

None of these Tyres will last if you abuse them like indian Tyres.

Thanks Tyre genius

I have already put in ES 100 as an impulsive decision post buy last week,but been not too happy . I had a talk with dealer , he is ready to exchange to any other brand with little price cut , so I am going for PLC now , not too sure about C drives now as the Yoko website does not show them anymore, i guess they are discontinued too.

MY01 are available here in grey and dealer himself suggested against them, Checked out details of MRF ZV2K too on your suggestion, Yes I would be driving on bad roads too , but not fast on such surfaces, I would be driving fast on good roads and slow on bad craters of mumbai roads and rural roads, thus as You said PLC is my final chocie. I hope this is the reight choice this time.

Thanks again man

My affair with the Conti CPC2 ended in a sour note when a pair wore itself out in 10K kms flat. The other pair had some more kms in it, but I decided to change all four. Since this was an unexpected one, I settled for the cheapest one I could find, and decided not to take any more "expert advises" from the dealer, who had recommended the CPC2 to me last time. It now rides on Yoko A-drive, stock size. Some amount of comfort is missing, but I hope this one lasts for some time.

Get the MRF ZLO in 195/60-14. Substantially better than the CPC2.

I recently updated the tyres on my Jazz to 195/60/15 Yoko C Drive tyre as recommended by Deepak of Tyrestore chennai (who in turn is recommended by several team-bhpians). Hope this helps as ANHC and Jazz have the same tyre specification.

Default Re: Continental tyres

Guys, need your help to upgrade the tyres on my Cruze. I want to change the stock JK Vectras (205/60/R16) to Conti CPC2 225/55/R16. But getting CPC2s is a problem in Kochi as no tyre shop has it in stocks now. I have been waiting for the new stocks to arrive for more than 2 months. I don't think I should wait any more as one of the Vectras was punctured beyond repair. Can you guys please suggest the next best alternative for CPC2? Should I go for Michelin or Yoko? I'm looking for good ride quality and decent grip. Any suggestions, please?

Continental CPC2 in 205/65-15 on a Civic.

Good solid tyre. Initially the tyres grip very well but fade after 20,000 kms. Even after that, it's still a very grippy tyre. It does squeal a lot though.

Ride comfort can be better. However, the advantage of the stiff sidewall is that these tyres are very very rugged. These tyres on a Civic have gone off-roading in Coorg and Chikmagalur and never even had a puncture!

Recently had a puncture in the city and the pressure gauge showed ZERO PSI. But the tyre looked ok. Checked it and it was a proper puncture. A nice nail had made itself at home.

The tyre was basically behaving like a run flat! Mighty impressed with the tyre today.
