Tyre warranties in India are more of a gimmick. No matter how good a driver you are, the tyre companies have a nice range of excuses.

Till date, no manufacturer has honoured their warranty with me.

No harm in trying anyways. Maybe, luck might favour you.

I have driven the car only in the city for the last 2 months and as far as I remember I have not had any high speed impact with pot holes.

Suggest you first talk to the dealer who sold you the tyres rather than approach the manufacturer directly. The better dealers will bat for you. You might at least get some pro-rata discount.

Luckily I was able to get it replaced under warranty, still had to pay Rs 1,000 for wear and tear + VAT.

They inspect if the Tire has a cut on the inside, thats what determines if there was an impact with a pothole.

Hi guys.
Does anyone know if the C Drive 2 have been launched in India ?
I see them on the Yokohama international website but not on the Indian one yet.

Another C Drive fan here - I have used my Yokos 225/60/R15 on my Innova for 70K+ kilometers, on really bad Bangalore roads. They have taken all that the roads have thrown at them, giant potholes, broken roads, sharp gravel, slush, mud, in stop-drive-stop Bangalore traffic. I have taken these on long drives, on some really nice highways and glorified goat tracks that pass off as village roads.

The tyres are quiet, very reliable, and wear well. Just about to change these to another set of C Drives - I love this tyre.

I have heard very good reviews about the Michelin Primacy LC as well, from another friend who is using it on his Innova. As for me, I am sold on the Yoko's !

Well, I am onto my third set here..two on the Innova (225/60R15) and one on the Baleno (185/65R14). Love these tires for their lifelong grip and comfort. Silent till the last mile and astonishingly grippy in the wet!

The C-drives on my i20 wore too quickly when compared to Michelins/Bridgestones. The tyre life is about 40% lower than others.

Anyone felt or had similar experience with them?

My innova tires were changed at 48k kms when they would have probably done another 10 k or so.

Grip and long life cannot come together. A tire that is soft enough to grip more will also wear more...it is as simple as that.

However, the grip, ride and silence that these tires offer is astonishing to me...and hence I am onto my third set

Came across this snap of Yokohama C drive today, but couldn't figure out what exactly the gel like thing is filled inside. Can someone throw some light?

The life is 30-40% less when compared to XM2, but better grip and less road noise. Not sure about the side-wall strength though.
