Silverstone - quiet Smilebut sidewall soft, but not that last.
GoodYear NCT and Continental - abit noisy but last longer.

I replaced 4tyres every year or approximate 25-30k km of driving..so
lifespan is not an issue because whatever brand of tyre, after 20k km
down the road, grip lost is noticeable.

Next change if using back 195/60/15, might try ridgestone GR80 or
Falken912.

my experience using goodyear NCT made me request my salesman to get one
persona with goodyear.

continental should be better, but i never had experience with them.

avoid silverstone unless u drive below 80kph at all times.

somehow the goodyear does roar...a little disturbing.

Mileage 30k and changed my 2 front tyres to Conti CC1 195/65/R15 for RM179/
pc at Tek Ming Sunway (with trade in). Wanted to replace to GY NCT 5
(original tyres) but the price is RM210/pc at Bandar Tun Razak, KL.
Morale of the story, never change tyres in KL unless terpaksa!!!

CC1's tread looks better than NCT 5 and the noise level is comparable.
Will be changing the other two soon as both are >50% worn out.

in term of noise

kruizer < cc1 < nct5 (noisiest)

grip

kruizer < cc1 < nct5

mileage

dunno.. but from my experience nct5 cepat botak
i think they should be about the same.

once my cc1 habis, want to change to better tires.. probably GR-80 or
yoko db 501 or might consider ze-912. at 20k, the cc1 are about 40%
worn.. should be able to stretch until 40k km if rotated and aligned
frequently.

You are right. Tyre size is 195/60/R15 and not 195/65/R15.
