Maybe the Michelin Pilot Precedas? They are available in 205/55-15.
I am looking for a mixture of performance and comfort. The current tires are pure performance oriented and ride quality is very harsh.
I am not happy with pilot precedas as i have used 195/60-14 PP1 in my car for 2K KM. Then changed to maxxis.
Any other tires in 195/55-15 which can give decent ride+performance?

Default Yoko dealer in Kochi

Does anyone know of a good dealer in Kochi (Edappalli/Kalamassery/Aluva)?

Need to change the S322 in Accent (175/70/R13). I intend to keep the same tyre size but go tubeless. Are A-drives available in that spec?

Maybe the S drives? Why not try Continental? They claim that their USP is comfort. And they dont totally ignore handling either. It should be good. Why dont you be the guinea pig for us TBHPians?

What is the difference between the A and S drives?

S drives are not available in that size. A drives are. So are the ES 100s. Difference between them is that the A drive is targeted more towards comfort and long life whereas the S drive is a sporty performance tyres.

3.5K! Are you sure they're not more than that?

The Michelin XM1+ in the same size cost 4.5K

I got yokohama 175/13" for my esteem! ride quality is superb! the tyre shop said that the pressure should be 30psi! but suzuki says that the cold pressure should be 26psi. i know that 26psi is for 155/13" tyres, but still.. isnt 30psi too much? please advice? And it would be very helpful if someone coul tell me the approximate price of a pressure gauge!
thanks in advance!

Yes if OE spec is 26 the upsize with lower side profile can keep same or even a pound or two lesser. Watch the tire wear for sometime to ensure pressure is aok, since the gauge calibration vary from place to place.

So, the A.drives in size 195/60-14 sell for 3.5K.

If both the tires (A.drives and XM1+) are at par, why would anyone shell out an extra grand for each tire? The amount saved (4K) could be used towards getting a useful accessory for the vehicle.

Exactly the reason why i went or A.Drives over the XM1+ which i had researched over and over and finalised till i went to the shop and he told me that XM1+ is not available in 195/70R14 (he had only XM1) and he showed me A drives which had the same features at a lesser price. And all my research goes in vain
