goodyear GSD3 or yokohama S.Drive?
Hi guys, i have booked 16" alloys for my swift and now, i have to decide on which tyres to get. The tyre size is 205/50R16 and two tyres available are, goodyear GSD3 and yokohma S.Drive.
I am expecting a decent life of around 30k kms and pretty good levels of grip from the tyres.
The prices quoted are,
Goodyear GSD3 - 5800/tyre ( by global tyres, Cochin)
yokohama S.Drive-5700/tyre ( by new bharat tyres, TVM)
Which one do you think, i should buy ?

I am using the Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD2 of size 195/60/15. The grip is good but i think they are of a pretty hard compound as the ride is a bit bumpy. The tyres are also very noisy.
I am now planning to upgrade my rims to 16" shod with 205/50/16 and looking for a good set of tyres myself and as per the votes on this thread, the Yokohamas S-Drives seem to be the right choice. Which alloys and design are you planning to fit?

I recently got some GSD3s.Initially had Michelin in my mind.
Profile is 195/60/R14. Right now in running in mode (another 100 to cross this barrier). But if you can wait for 2 weeks, I can provide you with some detailed report.
I don't think many people here have tried GSD3s. Didnt find enough reviews. But it seems to have recieved quite a good number of points compared to other brands and is above many on the ultra performance tyre section.

I agree Goodyear has a bad image now in the market. But that doesnt mean all it manufactures are good for nothing. They also have manufactured some world class tyres.
