On the rain caused slush of the roads of my office area,the OE Ceat tyre had better traction-so for slush,the Ceat is the better tyre-on dry broken roads and regular tarmac both wet and dry,the Apollo and Ceat are neck to neck-leaning hard into corners the Apollo with its big stiff tread blocks is the clear winner with no twitching and confidence inspiring feedback from the contact patch.

Today morning got a car lighter along with a 20Amp fuse fitted on Safeena-man there is a real shortage of real estate under the seat-all sorts of wire contortion has to be done to place it safely.The lighter body was insulated with tape.The positive terminal of the battery is really hard to unscrew.But all is well that ends well-tested the air pump and the contraption works fine-total expense Rs200 for the Maruti OEM Minda lighter and Rs100 fitting.
