Default Yokohama AVS dB (decibel) tires

Guys, I'm seriously interested in this tyre. Anyone know where i can get this in a 205/60 R15 in mumbai? please let me know thanks.

And if someone's using these, need a review asap.

Keshav (Psycho) is using them on his Merc W124. Last I heard he was super happy with these tyres. PM him and find out.

hellspawn has just got DB Decibels on his accord! From what i heard from him and friends these are the quietest tyres around. But soft sidewall and low treadlife and high cost are few of the negatives.

I have these tires on my Elantra CRDi, the performance of the tires is very good with very slow wear rate and low noise,bought 205/60 r15 for around 5k a piece, I have already done 30K on these tires.

Yup side wall flex is a problem at high speed maneuvering, Tyres are quite very quite and fairly grippy

I have done about 9k km on these tyres and they are extremely grippy on dry and wet conditions, sidewall flex is low due to the high tyre pressure recommended by Merc (36 and 42 psi). Only complaint is a slight drop of grip in dusty conditions.

The tyres are quiet on the road almost non existent road noise (Am yet to take it on the highway). PS: Hardly any signs of wear and tear.

Rough use: I wouldn't want to in this ride.

Guys, I'll be upgrading to 195/60 R15 from stock wheels on ANHC. The choices before me are:
Michelin Primacy LC
Yokohama Decibel v550

Michelin Primacy LC has a lot of information doing rounds of TBHP and has been praised well whereas Yokohama seems to be very silent when it comes to user reviews. I'm confused between the two as to what are the pros and cons of both these tyres. Both are known in the Less Noisy Comfort ride category, but what's the core difference?

I'm blindly inclined towards Yoko, but Michelin is making me think again. Help!

Why not add Conti CPC2 to that list ? SumitBahl was in the same dilemma yesterday "DbV550 or CPC2". After a lot of blah blah and more blah went for CPC2. And hes quiet happy with the purchase.

BTW i fell CPC2 is a lil more noisier than Mich's

I am not sure if they are available in that size but Yoko DB should cost around 4800.

Thanks for the suggestion Abhibh, even Nikhilb2008 recommended CPC2's. But can we have an analysis of the three, especially from the users. I just read an Ownership thread and the BHPian had upgraded to Primacy LC and he was praising them very well.

IMHO all three are good tyres. My experience with Mich's has been very good. Mich's tyres very silent and good on comfort compared to Yoko's or Conti (I have Conti).

I always find Yoko noisier (A drives, Neovas).

I PM'd Nikhil yesterday regarding comparison between CPC2 & Db V550. He suggested CPC2 over V550.
