I do not agree that it has such disadvantage. We will have to hear from a Tyre Expert as the technology has expanded,the manufacturers will not fit that tyres which are bad for indian roads.The advantages are there but disadavantages you have to check with Tyre Manufacturers.It has recently come in the market and the other knowledgeable owners can react and give their experience.
Dr P C Rao , . I will wait to see if any other Tyre Engineer can give his opinion or the users.
