LOL i have both of those Yoko tyres on my XR6 atm. The yokohoma S760 are basically the same as the C- Drives however the C-drive do offer the better performance but dont last as long.

Go with it! :P I have 205/65/15's at the front with 225/60/15's at the rear and the car handles like a dream! :)

Altogether it cost me $650 to get these tyres

225s will be trickier to keep wearing flat... ie tyre pressures have to be spot on, plus they'l wear badly on the shoulders after spirited driving more so than a 215/205..

but... they are phat. and phat is coo.

yeah well i am thinkin same setup as i already have new S760's on the front so onlly need new rears so was thinkin the c drives as they would look tougher and grip a bit better. Dont the last as long as the S760's? How much were both of your tyres xrfan101?

The C-Drives in the profile i have cost me $160 each/$320 for the pair. And they are well worth it, if your kind to them then they WILL last atleast 30,000kms. If not then you will be lucky to get that many kms out of them. :)

Ive got the Toyo F3 600 225/60 r15's on my beast and IMO they are the best tyres ive had on it. Got a good price on them at $150 each too, and it was well worth it. :)

He could have done the Yokies in a 225/60 r15 for me for $140 each but he thinks that the Toyos are a bit better, mind you the C drives are still a really good tyre...
