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.

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

GT Radial should be a good choice if looking for relatively cheaper tires but still with decent performance & quality.

Never use local brands before. All the while on imports. Tested once Dunlop local made but Japan Sumitomo pattern design. Wet performance was very very poor, could be due to local rubber compound formula. Even later use Dunlop and Goodyear models either from Japan or Germany....

There are few tyres model which made into my 'lousy' category list. Silverstone M3 and M5 are the worst. Acceptable dry grip but wet grip is worst. Tyres literally skid everywhere during rainy day.
Even during slow braking from 70km/h. 2 unit bulging after 4 months.
Drove friend's BLM fitted with it and same story.
Another one is Goodyear NCT5. Tyres has lousy grip with 70% tread. Worst case sidewall wear out much faster although I check the pressure every 2 weeks. Fitted on daily ride. Changed to now discontinue C.drive after that and no sidewall wear out issue.

Then again, those are my experience few years back. Not sure if the manufacturer has taken a step to improves it though.

They're good enough. I've used BAX before for almost 1 yr (before I sold the car) and quite good for the price I paid, so good value for money, surely cheaper than other more well know brands (GY, Michelin, Yokohama, Toyo, BS, Dunlop, Pirelli, etc.)
VR2turbo also have tested the high performance range HPY and he claims pretty good as well.
FYI, Michelin has some shares in GT Radial.

...
I've only experienced Silverstone in a rental car (Viva) during my trip to Langkawi for 4 days. Even in the dry the grip is very low, it understeered all over the place! Maybe the car also contributes to the poor handling...

Like bro. 6UE5t mentioned money for value. My friend on BAX2 also mentioned not bad for that value.
Yup, I am still on the HPY and they are pretty good, but this model start from 17". 215/45R17 only RM320 per pc. where Michelin is like RM500 plus, even with 80% of Michelin performance is good enough, since we don't go all out in out daily drives....

Most tyres even entry level are still okay in the dry. It is in the wet that puts them apart. So far local tyres that I have tested are more towards comfort and durability to cater for mass market.
As for NCT5 this is due to the sipes (small cuts) in the pattern. These sipes soften the rubber and aid in grip. Problem with NCT5, these sipes starts to wear off very fast. Probably too shallow. By 30% wear the sipes already starts to disappear that is why you lack grip at 70% thread. By 50% looks bald already.

New NCT5 (This one is off different size so pattern differ slightly)


Probably 15% wear only


Middle sipes almost gone, side sipes still have


Grooves still deep but middle sipes worn off, side sipes starts to wear off too
