You're actually slowing your car down. But whatever floats your boat.

Are you sure of this? You may be right if one compares Speed 97 to normal *unadulterated* Speed. But the problem is that with normal Speed, my car's peformance seems to vary inexplicably from week to week. Sometimes the car was really sluggish and one one occasion it even jerked and stalled upon hard acceleration. At that point I decided to go for Speed 97, and now the performance is consistently good. Probably because Speed 97 is unadulterated and ususally only company operated bunks supply it. The important point is that the engine seems to take the higher octane rating in its stride, which is a great relief.

Now I am afraid to go back to normal Speed, for fear that the engine may give problems (probably a gradual changeover is needed). For really long trips this is inevitable, though, as Speed 97 is not available everywhere.

I switched over from Potenzas to Turanzas some 7k kms back. Its bit quiter than Potenzas but I miss that grip. Next time I will go for Potenzas again.

Dear BHPians,

I am looking for turanza AR20 for my Zen. How do you guys recommend it? The car is currently running on Michelin XM1+ They were great but they have suddenly developed cracks. My car is low running hence need a set of tires which should not develop cracks. I don't mind higher wear rate and will not compromise on grip levels.
Please advise.

Guys, In Bangalore I am trying to procure Bridgestone AR 20 195/60 R15 for my Punto, but no one seems to have it & they said, production is stopped & it's not a great tyre, instead go for a E60 .

I have decided on Bridgestone considering the Bangalore roads and the infamous potholes. Now it looks like I have no option other than buying Michelin P3ST.

It would be great if you guys can give me a lead on where can I find these tyres.

Hey thanks! But that query I posted was about 3 years ago. I changed to Goodyear Ducaro and have run some good kms since then. Overall satisfied with the purchase.

Regards.
