Not at all doubting your experience sir. But what good reason does General tyre company have for omitting essential info that would easily allow us to judge between tyres. My stance is that it's a very doubtful and in confidence inspiring tyre why not change if especially if one can justify getting a Altis.
Take the tread wear rating for example which is not printed. People are of the view that euro stars are better suited to our roads than imported tyres but if a imported tyre has a better treadwear rating and many have excellent treadwear ratings no matter what the road it's used on it'll last longer.
There's also evidence to the contrary. There are many threads where people mentioned euro stars blowing on the motorway or where civic and corollas lost control and flipped and majority had euro star tyres. Now obviously people were also over speeding but a better tyre could have allowed them to save themselves from this mistake.
Even a personal Experince my Altis came with eurostars tyres in 2010 and within a year they developed irreparable flat spots all 4 tyres structure was bent out of shape due to the car only travelling 1000km in a year
Now it has continentals since long and they never develop issue of permanent flat spots even though they are supposed to be softer and it's still used for 1000-2000km a year only and even if I leave it for 3 months standing a quick high speed run makes the tyre warmup and any flat spotndissapear
So it shows how lousy the construction of euro star is. It's fine for everyday use certainly but for anything even a bit more it's a serious question mark and compromise in drive especially in a altis
That's all in my view
