    Question XM2 vs Advan dB vs SP Sport 490,which one to choose for 9th gen civic?

    AoA. Please guide me which one of theses tires should I choose, Michelin XM2, Yokohama Advan dB, Dunlop SP Sport or anything even better than these in the same price range or a bit more or less?

    Priorities are "low cabin noise" and "better fuel economy". Car doesn't go beyond 120 km/h on highways and max. 75km/h inside city(sometimes). Stock size(195/65/15) is required.

    Want low cabin noise and better fuel economy? Go for CC5. I'm using them on my 9th gen and car has clocked around 3k. Got the tyres changed right after getting delivery of it. Comfort level, braking, handling are much better than yokohama and low cabin noise even on motorways. I'm a frequent traveler and this is what I have observed. Go for CC5 eyes closed.

    thanks for guidance.After going through various threads, I have concluded more people are in favor of Continental Tires as also mentioned by brother Sk_Kingpin also. How would you compare them with Advan db?

    I had made up my mind for Advan dB but I'm totally confused as many are in favor of continental like you as well. What about the price range,big difference?

    Not that much price difference. CC5 is around 9k per piece.
    I have used Advan DB previously and I found continental better. Even drove them for around 60k on my 8th gen civic and they were still perfect. Didn't even loose grip/traction. My vote is for CC5.

    Been using advan db for years now in all sorts of sizes. Never had any issue with grip. Dry is superb. Haven't driven much in rain but it was fine whenever I did drive it.

    I was also an advan db user. I had to get my cars tyres changed and advan db was not available. Someone told me to give continentals a try. Got them installed and found them a lot better. Low road noise. Much much MUCH better steering response, braking and traction and more comfortable. Now all of my cars have them. Even new city which has hard suspensions feel a lot better and comfortable with cc5.
    Khan tyre in melody market G-6 is the authorized dealer.

    I am using SP Sport 490, Indonesian ones, They are excpetionally good tyres, excellent road grip, braking and fuel efficiency and lastly very economical if you buy Indonesian made(though japanese ones are hell expensive). There is no difference in tread design and specs of Indonesian and Japanese ones as models are same and MNCs like Dunlop maintain quality no matter where they manufacture....
    Drawback of these tyres is a bit high cabin noise above speeds of 110-120...
