Yup thats true. You should go online, do some research on these tyres and see for yourself. Even i wanted to go in for GSD2s but, after doin some online research, i found the GIIIs pretty impressive. Once i zero'd in on the GIIIs i didn't even bother looking at anything else.

For road cars, you should look for tyres with comfort, noise levels and wear rate. If a tyre can give you these things, it'll surely do well on the grip front. And lastly, nobody takes their road car to the absolute limit (it's just not possible on our roads).

I've taken turns at 140+ kmph (where i wouldn't have even dared to cross 110 on those S322s) but, i still haven't been able to get the GIIIs to screech. Don't worry about grip levels, these tyres can handle much more than our Indian cars can throw at it.

Hey Shan,

Knowing that i drive a NHC how can you say that hehe.. i mean a Vtec at 2000 RPM feels the same as a NHC feels at 6000RPM

Moderators may close the topic since i have sold the car. Though my decision was Bridgestone GIIIs. I apologise for all Bhpains efforts in helipng me out and i expect a similar response for (mostly) Corolla tyres.

Note : Since Montoya has sold off his NHC, there shall be no more discussions on this topic.
