    Yep, thinking of changing my stock 13inch to 15inch. Hrm... checked a few stores, pricing about $680-$800, Taiwan rims.

    The 702 series Dunlop are pretty noisy - Not Recommended!

    Should try Bridgestone, Yokohama or Michelin. Can never go wrong.

    A set of tyres is gonna to be with you for the next 2 years or so - you don't want to be stuck with a noisy set just to say 50 bucks or so, with your GF or wife grumbling as you drive around........

    basically if u want grip in wet conditions, the tyres will be noisy.
    if u want quiet tyres, they generally dun perform well in wet conditions.

    cannot get best of both worlds.
    noise is dependant on tyre compound & patterns.

    for me grip comes 1st as it contributes to your braking distance.

    imagine when u E-brake.
    if ur tyres dun grip well, u go forward more than a tyre than grips well.

    safety 1st always.
    the car how powerful also no use as ultimately the power has to be tranfered to the road.
    so the weakest link or strongest link is the tyres.

    I am using the Yokohama Aspec DB. It was pretty quiet for the first year but now in its second year its getting nosier and nosier.
    Performance in wet condition is . Great if you enjoy aqua planing.

    Aspec dB is one of the worst tyre.
    alot of complaints.

    the other brand to look out for is Falken.
    1st year good, after that wear very fast, becomes very noisy & rubber hardens.

    I have never used Falken before. If it deteriorates very fast after 1st year, noisy and hard, then, got to change liao - expensive becos only last 1 year.

    If you watch F1, their tyres don't even last 1 race!

    tyres still helps as it is the only contact the car has with the ground.

    Falken all my friends who use make alot of noise.

    for me i will stick to Bridgestone.
    but i may consider Dunlop F1 end of this year.
    the ribs all V shaped.
    very good for water extrution & going through puddles.
    V ribs all the way to the outer edge.

    For $450, what are the 195/55 R15 tyres available in the market?
    Are Stamford tyres any good?

    S$450 can get u a good set of tyres.
    Try Poh Heng tyres at AMK.
    Look for Justin.

    for that size i recommend Bridgestone Potenza G3.
    currently using them & it still grips well clost to 2yrs.
