Yes, they come in this size. I changed my car tyres to these. One month old tyre, 250 kms run. The noise level is reduced compared to the stocks. Right now am not i position to comment on grip. Comfortable and good tyres.

I am looking for a Silent tyre.
I currently use both the models in my cars

C.Drives -225/60R15 in my Innova, 185/65R14 in my friends Honda City

Michelin Energy XM1 - 185/65R14in my Baleno

I would say that the noise levels are pretty similar. Both the tires are silent. The ride comfort is similar too and I guess the C.Drive grips better. On the other hand, the Michelin is better built and has tougher sidewalls compared to the C. Drive.

Take your pick - you cannot go wrong with either but go with Xm1 if you face rough roads more often and will pay a premium price for the brand as well as a marginally better build.. Use the C.Drive if you want value for money as well as face wet roads / rain a lot as they definitely grip better in wet.


Mileage / wear rate seems similar to me.

Also - Just FYI nice video on C.Drive and A.Drive (Of course I am not sure if it is unbiased but still interesting nonetheless)

Are the C.Drives available in 185/55 R15? It is listed in the international site as C.Drive2- would be great if it is there in India. Else would have to down-size to 14", spend more on new alloy set :(

Quite a nice video. This is why I so badly wanted C-Drives in my Verna, settled for A-Drives as the required size (195/60 R14) was not available.

Would have been better if there was a direct comparison between the A-Drive and C-Drive.

C.Drives 185/65R14

Michelin Energy XM1 - 185/65R14

how much does each of the above cost? I have Apollo acceleres on my i20, run for 18.5K, how much can I expect for these, they are still in very very good shape.

Rodeo, you could consider 205/55/R15 Yokohama S-Drives.

I am not expert in it , does the outside diameter vary with this size? Any negative impact with going with this size like hit on FE?

If you rip your car,take corners at high speeds.Want high grip but dont bother about comfort,go for S-Drives.The are sporty tyres.So dont expect them to very comfortable.If comfort and decent grip is your priority then its C-drives

If it's comfort and decent grip, then stick to 195/60/R15 in V550 Decibel series from yokohama.

Please note

S.Drive - better dry grip
C. Drive - Better wet grip (Better than S Drives too!) and higher comfort.

see the yokohama tire positioning map on http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...ml#post2022454 (Yokohama C drive (now in a wider range of sizes))

The C.Drives in my experience require a bit of "run-in". Grip improves after 1000 kms or so.

Anyone knows?

Also, the Yokohama international site lists a C.Drive2 - is this on the way to India? What differences between this and the current C.Drive?
