As I mentioned earlier, I am using Yoko dB series 205/65/R15 in my GLi 2010. The tyres are great for normal city commuting and of course, they are noiseless.
However, since I travel often between Islamabad and Lahore, I must record my concerns. I dont do any rash driving, but on the highway, I have touched 170. These tyres are okay up to 140 km/h, but beyond that you don't feel very secure.
Secondly, muddy/ slippery conditions are quite common in Pakistan. These very sought after tyres are very disappointing. Couple of months back, I went to a resort near Chakwal. A Suzuki pick-up was leading the way. After the rain it was a little muddy, but the Suzuki pick-up had much better traction than my GLi ... That felt very embarrassing ...
Thirdly, on wet roads, you don't feel secure at all. ... trust me on this or try it yourself.
My tyres are still new .. I don't want to waste money by changing them now, but it is on my agenda to replace them with better tyres next time. The tyres are our link to the road, and we should go for the best we can afford.
Since our brother Mani1 travels on highways, he needs to have the best tyres available.
