yokohama db is the quietest tyre around, ( unless u keep to 80 km /h)

if u willing to pay, u can look into bs gr80( look out for gr90 next year )

goodyear ls2000 japan make, grip, noise all slightly above average ( for its price its really worth it )

toyo teo plus, very quiet , haven heard any issue with grip b4. but once again, toyo tyres only slightly cheaper then bridgestone tyres.

i heard alot of "horror" stories about yoko db decibels in the wet.

hmm,
Toyo teo plus, never hear much about that.

too bad GR80 is not longer available, if not i will love to try that.
How is LS2000 compared to GR80 in terms of noise > 100-120km/hr.

Michillin Energy MX1?


eh i think if u want something quiet u can forget about energy, the tyres is about lasting long life, if u check the threadwear,
i think 400 + if i remmember correctly, that tyres is damn loud b4 u can even finish 30 % of the rubber , COS ITS DAMN HARD. anyway that is my experience with it ONCE ONLY.

noise level ls2000 no fight for gr80, if u look at gr80 the thread , alot of fine thread pattern, gr80 also last longer then ls2000, but i think ls2000 win if u take grip into consideration , any way , comfort tyres we dun talk about grip, as long as it can stop during wet/dry weather its good enough . i dun know why for some reason db cannot stop in the wet, althrough its thread pattern look alike gr80, ( think something to do with rubber compound)

CPC2 is good but hard to find new stock. Over the weekend Stamford 3 days sale, I went and they offered my End 2006 CPC2 and commented the tires can last 6 years... I ask for newer stocks as they are distributor and am willing to pay more but they say... "No Stocks"!!

I just changed my tires to LS2000. Personally i think the noise level is still acceptable, but i like the reliability while cornering and wet roads though...quite a good buy.

Cheers!

i was on PP2 195/50/15...very quiet tyres (imo) given the grip it gives for dry weather...wet weather,travelled 130km/h on nshw with no traces of aquaplanning wink.gif Noise also must take into consideration the profile of the tyre & brand of car too!
