Can suggest an alternative underrated tyre - Falken Sincera. Tyre wears out faster but ride quality is a notch better than the Yoko Earth 1's, Bridgestone besides having equally tough sidewall. It will be cheaper as well.

Went to good ol Saifee, was pleased to meet the good ol staff & Jitubhai. Today's patient was the Honda City. And it got the XM2 treatment. I also got to compare the CC5, ER300 and the BlueEarths side by side. I loved the asymmetrical pattern of the Turanza ER300s. While the tyres were being changed got 2 customers running the CC5's and the Earth 1. The CC5s were on a Innova Crysta and the owner wasn't happy. The friendly mechanics suggested I go for the CC5. I am biased towards the Turanzas because of the fab experience I had with the ER60.

The CC5, ER300 & BlueEarth are coming at 4700/piece whereas its 5500 for the XM2s. Jitubhai might give me a good deal on the Michelins since I have already got a pair. The heart says Bridgestone. Lets see how this goes.

Continental MC5 is good for cars , Innovas should probably stick to whatever Bridgestones that Toyota provides, they are supposed to carry a lot more weight and last long while doing that.

Michelins suits city as it helps with keeping the noise down and it remains noise free till the end. This is from experience with 09 city, I'm sure it helps current city as well.

Agree. So finally went ahead and got the Turanza ER300 for the Liva and XM2 for my brothers Honda City. Was a tough call with the CC5 but chose the Bridgestones because of the previous great experience I had with them. Im a little biased towards medium-hard compound because our roads are never going to improve. We need tough tyres.
