Good to hear you are still hapy with the C.Drive
I Using same size tyre as you.
Unfortunately with tyres, everything is a compromise.
I prefer a good ride and low noise to absolute grip on a road car as long as th etyre is predictable near and at the limit. Nothing worse than driving for 7-8 hours in a car with droning tyres .
So far they seem as Comfortable and Quiet as the Yokohama dB V550 .
Not been able to push the tyres as yet as too new and no idea how they are in the wet as too dry
Hopefully they will be better in dry and wet than the V550 and if they are that will be really good.
NB I got 40,000 km out of the V550 and would have got about 35,000 out of the Pirelli PZero Nero which is a noisy , rough riding tyre. I have not tried the DS-D3 .
