Cool Yokohama A539s on Indica V2 Turbo DLG

Hi,

I have 2007 Indica V2 Turbo DLG, around 40,000 Kms done, had the stock 165/65/14 Goodyear GT3 tyres previously.

They would had last for 5000 kms more, but as I am going to Goa in December, thought of changing them.

Researched a lot, for which are the best but cheaper.

Right from Apollo's to Michelin's.

Visited all the well-known tyre dealers in Pune. One of them suggested me, to also think of Yokohama A-drive.

Yokohama Which are these tyres??? Japaneseee... Should I trust them..

Then searched a lot for them on the net, got good reviews...

Finally got 2 options.. Goodyear Assurance and Yokohama A-Drive

Selected Yokos (175/65/14).. But had a problem with my rear bumber right side, which were scraching the tyres. Got them off again.... repaired the bumper, but was not sure.. how well will it work..

Finally, the dealers suggested to go for Yokos, but A539s 175/60/14. Thread Pattern was a bit different. But feeling nice .... not drove much on those yet.

Has anybody tried on these tyres.. Any reviews..

Hehe. Sirji!! I'm not Yoko fan except when it comes to the Advan series and the Geolandar. Of course, their A Drives are very well priced too! These japaneseee know how to make very good tyres!!

Harshad, those are good tyres. But like all imported tyres, they are not as tough as the MRFs, JK, etc... So, you need to take care while driving on really bad roads.

175/65 R14 or 185/60 R14 both sizes should be ok on the stock rim. Chech whether there is any bend in the rims. Incase 175/65 its touching the bumper then there is some problem with the bumper. Was there any accident?.

I have 175/65 R14 on my 2006 Indica turbo & am having no problem.

Yes, Yokohama A539's are Made in Japan and A-drives (all or certain sizes) are Made in Philippines (my friend has these on his WagonR, bought through the official channel).

I've A539's 175/60 R13 on Xing and they're comfortable and grippy.
