CPC2 is mid category, whereas CC6 is entry level. Will have better comfort and should be more durable.

CC6 looks to be a bit overpriced. Some tyre shops tell buyers that XM2 is better value.

CC6 and XM2 both are entry level only. Both are not worth if you are into handling and performance. Like XM2 price close to PS3, might as well take PS3...

That is, provided there is PS3 for that size. E.g. XM2 tyre is 185/65 R14 and to change to PS3, new 15" wheels for the PS3's 195/55 R15 size will be needed. So the cost difference will be a lot more!

If don't have tyre size then cannot help loh!

Performance tyres nowadays all start with 15" dy, so a one time investment for rims can be a good thing.....lol

Most new B segment cars already wear 15" tyres - so it is not a problem. It is older cars like MyVi or Wira that the owners have to figure out the ROI before they change.

That depends what tyre size they give as OEM. My friend's Persona comes in 15" but 195/60R15. 15" in 60 series also don't have performance category tyres, unless he goes for 55 series, but then tyres too small.

Then like City another friend have 185/55R16, tyre choice less. If go 195/50R16 tyre choice also not much. If go 205/50R16 rims not wide enough.....lol

Sometimes I think the OEMs deliberately choose these tyre sizes so that they encourage the car buyers to "upgrade" to their highly expensive accessory sports kits...

Yes, lower cost allows better profit margins....  ;)
