The ride quality evidently improved since the change from stock Goodyears, a massive difference. It was also the most value for money tyre available though that wasn't what I was looking for but a happy coincidence.

In terms of plush ride and grip though, XM2 is the absolute tops - only that its sidewall isn't stiff enough, I pushed and tested the sidewall rigidity of XM2, Continental CC3 and Earth-1 and Earth-1 was the stiffest of all 3. This is because the E1 has a double-ply rubber construction compared to others and I wanted something like that as its more reinforced to handle the torturous Indian roads.
