    Default High Performance & Silent tyres for Camry 2007

    HI
    I need tires for my camry 2007 with 215/60/16 specs.

    My requirement is that they should be quiet and comfy.

    My driving style is such that often i need to maintain speeds of 180-200 kmph for 15-20 mins, the tires should let me take the car where i want to at that speeds.

    If i search on the internet, most of the tires i found are not available here in Pakistan, Islamabad.

    I did however find Advandb & Michelin Vivacy in the local market. (i have not looked at Pirellis ... although i havenot tried them but they always seem quite hard)
    Advandb... seems a bit too soft for the likes of camry.
    Vivacy .... well the tread looked like it was going to be a noisy one.
    What do you guys recommend from your experience and the requirements i have put forth in the beginning for a car like camry 07.

    I will be going to Pindi this weekend to see what they have in stock.

    Thanks Guys, will check out both primacy hp, and sp01.
    I went to pindi this weekend and it seems that tires with 2014 manufacturing dates are almost non-existent. Every shopkeepers says that their stock isnt here yet , but it will be coming within a couple of weeks. They say that tires come in Pakistan in september/november of every year...... Pretty strange to me!!
    Anyways keep the suggestions coming.

    Bridgestone Turenza is good.
    Michellin any brand will do.
    I hope u know that the tires should be fresh, not more the 6 months old.
    Hope u know how to read the manufacturing date on the side wall of tire.

    Thanks, From what i have learned, i have to be very careful in choosing the model. From the wide range of michelin models, each tire is quite different from the other.

    No tire is perfect:
    If you want grip and high speeds then you may have to compromise tire life and comfort.
    If you want comfort and no noise then you may have to sacrifice grip.
    If you want wet/snow grip your dry grip will sacrifice, and vice versa.

    Then, there are all season tires, which are jack of all and master of none (which are generally most bought ) and within them are different categories of standard, high performance and ultra-high performance. (Performance meaning, speed & Grip only)

    I personally am targeting to get something in high performance category.
    But here is the catch, EVERY TIRE gives different feedback on different cars… mainly based on car weights.From what I have learned so far no tire is perfect:
    If you want grip and high speeds then you may have to compromise tire life and comfort.
    If you want comfort and no noise then you may have to sacrifice grip.

    I personally am targeting to get something in high performance category.
    But here is the catch, EVERY TIRE gives different feedback on different cars… mainly based on car weights.

    Thats why i started this thread to see if there are other camry. owners who have installed high performance tires and see what is their feedback.

    Aoa,

    This is what our Camry (2008) came with; Yokohama ASPEC.

    I agree to what you have stated, I presume Toyota must have done lot of home work while selecting the above tire.

    However have a look at this;

    Hmm... Strange.... anyways, tell me about your experience with these tires.
    Did you have anything to compare these tires with? or these are the only tires you have tried on your camry.
