    In local terms eco is a soft tyre while sp is a hard tyre. The main difference is eco is suitable for smooth roads and lasts less than sp whereas sp is a hard tyre which is suitable for those who have to take there cars on bumpy roads such as villages etc.

    The only good tyres introduced by Dunlop are Dunlop SP Sport 9000 and SP Sport Maxx. All other tyres are either notorious for various sorts of complaints or are not good value for money. And you do not get SP Sport 9000 and Maxx for smaller cars like cuore/cultus etc. Also anyone who thinks Sp Sport 9000 is a hard tyre is grossly mistaken. It is a soft tyre. Infact in the local market dealers 95%+ of the time only import soft tyres (in 15") because of the Goodyear f1 and Dunlop FM901 which were very hard tyres and ruined suspensions of most cars. Afterwards dealers stopped importing hard tyres.

    The ones you got installed are Digi tyre/Eco 201. The tyre is extremely soft with weak side walls and is the most notorious tyre in the market as it easily develops bubbles in the side wall.

    In your case (cuore) I would suggest going for Good year GPS 2 or Ducaro series (Made in India) or Yokohama A drive. Personally I like GPS 2 much better. Awesome grip and comfort with medium strength side walls which are ideal for our local road conditions and do not develop 'bubbles' in them on hitting potholes

    totally agreed with wat u said....starting from LM 701 to 702 and then sp sports 490 and digityre eco, all are extremely soft tyres and can not take the beating they get from pakistani roads.....i have been saying here on Pakwheels a lot of times that the best value for money tyre (not the best tyre) out there in the market is Yokohama A drive....and if one has a lil more money, then Yokohama C drive....i have tested almost all the tyres out there and i rate both these tyres extremely high

    I am willing to spend approx Rs 4000-5000 per tyre including adjustment of cost with stock tyres which I am expecting around Rs 1600 per tyre or so. Just want a combination of good grip, comfort and low road noise.

    You are correct...a typo

    @Panther

    If I were you I would choose Dunlop Sp Sport 9000/Yokohama C Drive. I do not know the latest prices but they have jumped considerably. I guess they are around 6k/tyre for 195/R15
