Yes. Yes. I know it's overkill for an NHC Vtec. But as a friend said, if I dont go for it, who will? If me being a Yoko dealer doesnt experiment with such expensive tyres, who will?

Also, spoke to couple of people who had/have AD-07s.Binz, Rahul on the forum. Raj Hingorani(who also said these are awesome and he got 45k out of them before he changed to A048s and there was still some life left in them!!).

The rubber surface seems very different to a normal tyre. It isnt the usual soft rubber. It feels different.
Size is 195/60-14. Will be fitted tomorrow.

Price: Dont ask. Being a dealer, I got a special rate from Yokohama directly.

I will also get free balancing, alignment, free nitrogen.

I know. Performance mods for the NHC are next on the list.

Everyone in Banaglore is an expert but when I start a thread no one bothers to help!

Nice! How about a great set of alloys as well? Post pics once fitted, specially from the back perspective.

Congratulations Nikhil. Like I was mentioning to you before these tires will slow you down incredibly. So better get going on the engine front if you want to see what these tires are capable off. If you get bored of them, you know whom to approach to get rid of these tires .

Haha. Sure man. Though these exact same tyres will be fitted to another T-BHPians ride tomorrow if the company doesnt have more in stock.

Hehe. As far as I know T-BHP is a free site where people give PPHHRREE gyaan

Seriously man, thanks for the advice.

On a sidenote, for the price we paid for this, even if they last 20k kms, it is worth it!

Naaah. Not interested in upgrading alloys. The stock NHC Vtec ones are already 14". Now, if I upgrade to 15" I need to think of another set of AD 07s in a bigger size. I dont think spending more money on alloys is worth it.

Hey bro,
these look pretty good. What is the MRP for these tyres? And are they available as part of Yokohama's indian options or do they have to be imported?

Cheers!
