    A couple of other questions. Are you looking for comfort + silent ride? Are you kaki cornering? What's your rough budget?

    If you need performance but with a lower budget...you might wanna consider Neuton , Nankang, Achilles and GT Radial Champiro...not sure if they come in 195/55/15 but you can easily Google search them.

    My 2 cents.

    Other choices you may consider are

    Michelin PS3

    Continental Contact CC5

    But if given to choose the 3, I would go for ToyoTeo Plus

    Of the 3, I will go for Teo Plus. T1R sidewall's isn't on my 'like' list and it tend to become noisy due to the directional tread.
    Given wider choices, there are PS3(still soft sidewall), GY Directional 5, RE002 or Continental MC5 for some spirited performance.
    You need to define your main criteria in looking for one. Spirited driving? hellaflush? comfort? You can't have them all in one package.

    If you're sharing the car with your dad, C.Drive2 is decent. For Hellaflush style, go for cheaper option like NT8000 as you're going to
    de-formed the tyres' structure anyway.

    Added :
    Mh Wong, I missed out your post. 205/50/15 performance tyres had limited choice.
    You may take a look at Kumho Ku-36 offering.

    No need for me to answer mah! Plenty of sifus around.....:biggrin:

    ---------- Post added at 06:02 PM ---------- 6 hour anti-bump limit - Previous post was at 05:52 PM ----------

    Bro., you have to set your priorities you want. Of the 3 tyres mentioned Teo Plus should be entry level, ER300 are mid and T-1R are UHP category.
    PS3 are good in wet and dry and are comfortable too but price should be around RM300 per pc.
    Try GY F1 D5, Hankook V12 Evo for performance.
    Yoko C-Drive 2 also have soft sidewall, mid range tyres. Price in PJ around RM250
    Whether Teo plus better or T-1R better depends on what. Grip should go to T-1R and comfort to Teo plus.

    Federal 595 RSR are extreme tyres. Very good for dry, so so in wet only.
    You want better wet then look for Max or UHP tyres, but dry will loose the extreme...
    Kumho KU36 also very good for dry only.
    Not many sizes for 205/50R15 and this size also quite expensive

    Soft sidewall will be more comfortable but the trade-off will be a bit less responsive for spirited driving.
    Hard sidewall is the other way around: less ride comfort, better response for spirited driving.

    Yoko C-D2 is mid. Teo plus should be entry level.
    Differences between soft and hard sidewall already explained by bro. 6UE5t.
    As mentioned earlier you have to set your priorities you want out of the tyres then only choose the tyres

    As the price different for 4x 15" tires isn't big, get continental or dunlop. Silverstone should be black listed cuz even Kenda is far better than it. I used 2 times Silverstone on different cars with different size and series and kena 2 times tire pregnant. Toyo tires are good but T1R need higher pressure else outer thread will be ate up faster than the middle thread. Korean tires are good for drifting, even KU36, but not good for those race driver wannabe (like me and many people out there). Michilin and yokohama are overpriced and falken must have a boss that not ngam with insurance companies. Bridgestone is quite fair but not too sure for the small size tires although never heard people complaint about it.
