    C drives are old, A drive are not that good. Go for Db Decible. They are nice tyres to have.

    Sir I recommend Dunlop SP Sports 9000 if you want a sporty ride and you live in place where the roads are smooth.

    Else Michelin XM1+ or Bridgestone Turanza ER30 are best, Yokohama db decibel V550 are also good.

    Pirellis are damn expensive, it cost me 6,400 for Pirelli P6000 15".

    is 185/70R15 the stock size??

    the most important thing to do is to find a tyre without a tampered production date and a high temp rating. don't bother with brand loyalty etc, our roads suck and you actually need an all season tyre if you intend on being able to drive in peace.

    high performance (dry) street tyres are absolutely useless in PK as the roads are like glass.

    yoko DBs are good
    Pirelli P6000s are not bad
    michelin Pilor sport 3's are probably the best tyres for a small car but they'll cost you a small fortune so you're better off looking for Michelin Energy savers, similar compound, more economical.

    In 15", which tires are relatively low on price and would have good performance and longer change interval?

    I found out that Eurostars go bad after about 20K-30K Km's. their "jaal" leaks.

    Dunlop ECO's have very soft sidewalls, hence the wobbly cornering and bubbles on the sidewall.

    Dunlop LM 701 and 702 have bad reviews on Pakwheels.

    What would be the approx price of Yokohama Db's?

    How good are Maxxis and Kumho?

    Thanx in advance.

    Since the car itself is hard at suspensions you need a soft tyre to somehow compensate for the bumpy ride - Dunlops are your friends.

    However, if you travel to rural areas often, they tend to produce bumps on the sidewalls since they are soft.

    You can't get wrong with Yokohama Aspecs in that case.

    Go For It, You Will Came to Know What Actually Drive Comfort is
    Sir I do not think Continentals are available in Lahore.

    Tire size for VTI is 185/65 R15.

    Yokohama A drive are entry level touring tires just like Dunlop SP Sports 300 enhanced for tread life and comfort but the grip and any sporting nature is absent.

    Yokohama S drive are premium and sporty and Db decibels are much comfortable both V550 and ES series are made for Executive cars.

    Pirelli P6000 are very good but have a firm ride, grip and braking are first rate, Kumho KH11 and Bridgestone Turanza are both premium tires, ER30 was stock on my brothers Bimmer 325i.

    Michelins XM1 will cost 9K / piece but tread life can be as good as 70K km.

    Regards

    Sir Energy saver are low resistance and low drag tires designed for fuel economy and higher tread life at a slight expense of roadholding and a higher price, not available currently.

    Thank you all for the information. Now, apart from Saif Traders, where can I find fresh and non-stamped tires in Lahore?

    I think Aspec Db's seem to be a good choice. Back in the day, we had Bridgestones SF-270's on our Corolla station wagon and they were comfortable and extremely durable. Do they make anything like that anymore?
