    I think, Dunlop and lancer is the best and also good for road grip. They're pretty good.

    correct me if I am wrong. to me if a tyre is has good grip it mush perform well while braking.
    the tread pattern of ES100 is a symbol for good road grip and excellent braking but a bit noisy.

    it is xcellent in grip coz its styling is very flat pattern type ,there r not much cuts n linings which u see in other pattern tyres , even yokohama site recommend it as sports tyre , tyre gurus can say more clear about this issue . . .

    ES100 was excellent for my charade which was used for drags
    when the same tyres where shifted in my civic, they ruined the suspension cause they were hard and also made the ride uncomfortable

    if u didnt have money to buy new tyres, buy smaller rims and new tyres. even general would do . used tyres are suicidal and mostly used for taxi's with top speed 40km/hr
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    tyres if used have a life of almost 04 years or certain km whichever comes first, so avoid used tyres.
