    When getting new tyres for you car do you consider the pattern of the tyre tread ?
    What is the criteria ? What do you look for ?

    Thats quite a good one, I admit, but I have personally found that assymetrical patterns give better ride comfort vis-a-vis performance, I have somewhat of the same tread pattern albeit smaller size, 205/65 r15, yokohama s.drive, grip levels are phenomenal and wet surface grip is even more so, but its at the cost of ride quality, and there is quite a bit of tire roar at high speeds, the side wall is thick and quite unforgiving...:(, thats why it grips well in corners...no pain, no gain
