    I am in the verge of changing the tires. Decided it would be Michelin XM2 or Yoko Earth. size would be 195/60/R15.

    Kindly provide your feedback on these two brands with Pros and cons as per your experience.

    Requirements would be as follows.

    Mix of City and more Highway drive.
    Side walls should be good as occasionally going to village as might come across mud roads and pothole roads.
    cornering should be good.
    Good braking in dry n wet.
    Silent rides as compared to GT3 in my Punto.

    Thanks in advance.

    Just got 2 of my Punto's GT3 replaced with Yoko A drives. I was told by the dealer 195-65-R15 isn't available in Yoko Earth. BTW, Sony portable charger offer is still on with set of 4 Yoko tyres

    If you mean Michelin Primacy 3 ST by "3PST" in your post then I have it on my car for the last eight months and 10,000 kms. Primacy 3 worldwide I read, is the replacement for the Primacy HP but Primacy 3 ST (ST standing for Silence Tuned) is for the asian markets. I like the tyre, they are pretty quite and comfortable but that could also be because of the Linea's brilliant suspension. The size is 205/55 r16.

    Just checked their website and found that michelling PP2 is available in 205/55/15
    Any idea about this tyre?

    - - - Merged Post - - -

    also according to http://www.michelin.in/tyre/viewall/526
    195/60/15 also sits well on a 7J alloy.
    Mine is a 7J alloy.
    Does anyone feel its better to go for 205 only or i can put 195 also?

    The reason im asking is i'm really fond of 3ST and since its not available in 205 i had to take another call but if it can fit a 7J i would go for it
