Rudraji,

Only the 91H and 91V models are available in India. Of course, the only difference between them is the speed rating which frankly I feel wont make much of a difference except in the minds of some people.

The price difference is close to 600-700/- per tyre between the two!

H rating is good for 210kmph. Meaning it is good for constant speeds of 210kmph.

V rating is good for 240 kmph.

Depending on the capability of your car and your driving style, you can decide whether the extra 600/- is worth it or not.

Hmm, so they can be a proper substitute if one doesn't get PP2 fresh stock?

Yes. They will not have the outright dry grip as the PP2s, but then for almost 1500/- cheaper per tyre, I think it's ok.

PP2s are in short supply.

I am also looking for reviews about Conti CPC2. How is it compared to Michelin Primacy LC? Which one has better/tougher side wall?
Nikhil,
Could you please let me know the price range of CPC2 (195/60R15 88V)?

Thanks,
Matt

The CPC2 will definitely have a stiffer sidewall.

195/60 R15 will cost around 4.5k per tyre.

Rudra if you are looking for PP2s in 205/60 R15, I'd say look for other options. After switching to 205/55 R15 Advan Neovas, I can say for sure that the PP2s make the steering feel way heavier than it ought to be and it also slowed down the car. For a while I thought it was stability, but now I feel that its just an unwanted effect. Most people complain about advans slowing them down, I'm actually relishing the fact that my car actually feels faster with them than before.

PP2s grip really well in the straight line but their lateral grip is no way close to the Advans. Nor is the wet weather performance, nor is ride comfort. I'm not kidding - I'm finding 205/55 R15 Advans way more comfortable than 205/60 R15 PP2s. Plus PP2s wore out quite soon for me - roughly 30k or so.

Given your style of driving, I wouldnt be surprised if the Advans last 10k! :

@Nikhil & other tyre gurus..

I am looking for new shoes for my civic. I have shortlisted CPC2 & Primacy LC. I would request you to please clarify which one is better. I have also created a thread with contain details of what I am looking for in the tyres.

Thanks,

There is no simple answer to "which one is better".

Comfort and silence: Michelin Primacy LC

Grip(especially in wet), decent dry grip and slightly stiffer sidewalls : Conti CPC2. You see what your priorities are and take a call.

There is already a loooooooong thread on Honda Civic tyres. Search for it and you will find it.

Sir,
1. Since CPC2 is not available in 195/65 R15, Can I use 205/60R15 on my original Civic rims. Will there be a problem?

2. Stiffer side wall of CPC2 will make it little less comfy then Primacy but it will still be better than goodyear NCT5. Is it true?

3. My main motive is minimum noise and maximum comfort.

4. What kind of extra care we need to do for CPC2 (imported tyres)?
(You can guide me to specific thread.)

I am sorry I am asking too many questions

Thanks,
Manu Chawla
