    yeah I know they cant be used on the road. Just trying to relate with the theory of more Linings=beter grip.

    @asd123
    sorry dude. Didnt intend to ruin your topic.
    I stated to pros/cons of the a539 in a previous thread.
    You can call 051-5564886. thats national tires in pindi. The guy is a goodyear dealer and should cover their warranty, however he did not replace my a539's when their bubble occured, but that probably wasnt his responsibility anyway.

    The lm702's as tech_wiz mentioned are not bad, however i've heard they are noisy when cornering at the limit. Shouldnt be a problem if you dont drive too aggressively.

    Also there's a new yoko tire, called the C-Drive. I'd love some comments about that, as I was thinking of getting a set myself.

    im using C-Drive in my 2006 Gli.

    i would say its a very quite, soft tyre with reasonable road grip.

    braking distance has decreased as compared to generals.

    cornering is fine but i dont drive too rough i woud say

    havent noticed any effect on fuel economy. i have 185/65/14.

    behaves well in wet as well!!

    I have got these in my Xli in Jan05. Have +12K on ODO and tyres are working very well, soft and noiseless and good grip. Had done motorway Lhr-Isl-Lhr trip in one day with five people in car and to Abbottabad with full load and a full trunk.

    Got them from a dealer at Murree Road RWP near Gownhouse and each tyre cost me 3500 rupees after adjusting stock General tyres for 4800 rs. Do you think these tyres are expensive or its just the normal rate of tyres in this range.

    Just search ASPEC A300 and you will get a lot of info about this tyre.
