Default Yokohoma Tyre warranty

I am posting this for the information of fellow team bhp members. Yokohama has started issuing warranty cards effective 22-Aug-2010 for the tires we buy from them. The formats of the warranty cards are attached here.

Scan_Doc0288.pdf
Scan_Doc0289.pdf

Please take note to ask the dealer to collect the warranty card once you buy them from dealer. The dealer where I bought the tyres forgot to issue me the warranty card when I bought the tires on Saturday. I mailed to Yokohama seeking clarification and I got a lightning response from them. I got an email from Tyre professionals also informing me that they forgot to give me the warranty card and will be collecting it this evening.

Yokohama has a representative by name MK Appachu [m.appachu@yokohama-india.com] based in Bangalore who was very helpful in resolving the issue and as per him, the Yokohama warranty details are as below (just copied the email I received from him)


1. Regarding the warranty for Yokohama tyres , it has an conditional warranty for 60 months from the date of manufacture of the tyres, or till the ware out of the tyres whichever is earlier.

2. This warranty is covered for only on the manufacturing defects .

3. We have introduced the warranty cards eff 22nd of August , and if your purchase was after the said date , the dealer was supposed to issue the warranty card.


Appachu is a very helpful guy and you can get in touch with him if needed.

In the passenger car tyre rating, any idea why the ES 100 is not shown?

I changed my Stock tires for my Aveo as they were completely worn out after 42K kms. I switched from Good Yr to Yoko C Drive 185/60R14. Madhu's did a pretty good job over the weekend in replacing the tires for me.
Initial impressions of Yoko C drive are that my Strg has become a lot lighter. I am able to realise the traction loss that I was facing prior to the tire change only now.
Ofcourse got the 5Yr Warranty Card from Yokohama. Quite happy with the deal & job by Madhu's. Even more happy with the pleasure of driving a car that responds to my directions!!!

Just had a talk to Yokohama executive. He said C.Drive was more comfy than A.Drive but A.Drive helps in increasing FE. He also maintained DcB are the best when it comes to good FE & Ride. Wondering whether its all exec. talk!

Because if you read the Yokohama Catalogue page on S drives, the smaller size tyres (14") are shown to be available "in ES100 tread". For example, 185/60R14 and 195/60R14 are shown available under the S-drive page, but marked "in ES100 tread". So it would not be wrong to assume that the ES100 should have the same positioning as the S-drives.

225/60/R15 might as well upsize while you are at it. Looks much better.

Default Re: Yokohama C drive (now in a wider range of sizes)

Hello Nikhil and other tire aficionados,

I will be taking delivery of a Laura 2.0 TD-CRD DSG Ambiente shortly. I plan to leave the rims as they are and upgrade the tires from the stock 195x65x15 NCT5's to 205x65x15's.

The original plan was to go for CPC2's (Michelin PLC was not an option because of comments regarding their soft nature). After further research though, the Yoko C-Drives are now top of list. I asked about the AvS DB's also, but hear that they are in fairly short supply in the size that I'm looking for, making them a non-option.

My ask is the usual - comfortable, silent/nearly silent, good performance and hardy to handle our challenging roads. Given these, do you think that the C-Drives are a good option for a 140hp car?

Regards,
BITF

Default Re: Yokohama C drive (now in a wider range of sizes)

I would agree that C Drives would be a better option to the others in the sizes you are looking for. After some research, I too have decided to move to C Drives 205/65 R15 for my Civic.

AVS DB have a poor record in wet conditions. Additional benefit of C Drive over AVS DB is the fact that these are not unidirectional (only asymmetrical)

The prices being quoted here in Bangalore are Rs. 4900 per Tyre approx.
