Burning Rubber... (Part 2)
About a week after my friends had their cars embellished with new steel and rubber, I had all my tires replaced with Yokohoma A-Drive R1 (ARO1) tires (Thailand manufactured), profile; 215/45/17J. These tires are Yokohoma's newest in the range, after the C-Drive.
(The link was last posted on my blog dated June 17, 2006, so, go take a look)
I must say, the ride aint to bad... in fact, the ride isexcellent.... According to Yokohama's 2006 cataglogue, these tires are economical, although, the handling aint comparable to Yokohama's ES 100's, which I used to have on my rims.
The ES 100s were superb. I had very good road-handling and grip, moreso in the rain. Unfortunately, being Japanese manufactured, they come at a premium.
