Considering Nikhil's point, it's CPC2 v/s Primacy LC. God, tyres for BHPians are a lengthy but fruitful process.

I would rate Psycho's advice highly.

So, now my advice would be COnti CPC2 = V550 > Primacy LC.

This is for performance.

For outright comfort and silence, then it would have to be V550 = Primacy LC > Conti CPC2.

CPC2 is a little noisy. Michelins and this model of Yokos are among the most silent tyres in the market as of now.

LC is a great tyre but I opted for the Yoko for the difference in price but have not been let down by the quality and am extremely satisfied with the decision.

dna db and avs db are targeted for comfort but still different, avs db has better handling and grip whereas dna db is outright comfort.

Guys, what is the expected life from these tyres? I was told to be 40k-45k Kms.

Thanks Nikhil. That's enough from a high end tyre, atleast for me.

Did you purchase Yoko V550 ?
How good are the tyres in terms of comfort, grip and noise level ?

Just another question in long discussed topic...
What is the life span among these 3 tyres?
LC, CPC2, and Yoko
you can consider occasional high speed on higways and rest normal city driving in delhi-Noida condition.

Are both there tyres available in 195/55 R15 and which of these two are comparatively more comfortable.

DNA dB is for comfort, AVS dB is for handling AND comfort. Am sure AVS dB is available in 195/55 R15, not sure about DNA dB.

Nope. Not available.

In 195/55 R15, you have only A Drives, S Drives and Advan Neovas.
