    Any recommendations between the following tires for an FD civic? Pudpod na yung stock set of A Drives ko hehe

    Budget stuff I'm choosing between:

    Yokohama A Drive R1 (Wala na yata yung normal A Drive)
    Bridgestone Turanza ER33
    Bridgestone GR100
    Bridgestone Ecopia

    As usual, I'd prefer the unicorn (that is to say, everything) - Ride comfort, braking performance in the dry/wet, longevity. Will probably be never tracked nor driven above 120kph so performance handling isn't really on the top of my list.

    Thanks!

    For the R16 I was looking at, approx between 3-4k per tire ata. I don't have the exact models pero relatively the last time I checked nasa ganiyang price.

    Will research on the bluearth. Thanks. I suppose ito yung ecopia counterpart ng Yokohama?

    Will the GR100s be any better for the price difference? Nasa low 4Ks ata yung GR100

    I have no first-hand experience with the newer Turanza GR100 but if it is as good as the older GR80/GR90, I guess it is worth it to get them.

    BluEarth is more like Turanza. Was supposed to get them before but went with Kumho Ecstas instead.

    Per my experience, check prices with as many tire shops as possible.
    Just replaced my 15" tires last Nov 2017 and prices vary per shop even if they are authorized dealer of a single brand (e.g. Yokohama Makati offers 25% discount whereas Yokohama Laguna gives 30% discount). In the end, settled with Bridgestone Alabang that gave me 40% discount.

    Did a quick check on the tire prices and availability.

    205/55/R16:
    Cost Per Tyre
    Bridgestone 3+1 Promo:
    Ecopia around 4.5k / pc
    Turanza GR100 (directional) panay 2013/2014 daw meron so never mind
    Turanza ER30/33 no longer being offered na raw

    Yokohama:
    Bluearth (old model forgot the number code) nasa around 4300
    A Drive 5200
    A Drive R1 (directional) around 4700
    Advan Fleva (directional) around 4900
    Bluearth AE50 as per sir jut's reco - no exact tire size, pero meron in 205/60/R16 and 215/55/R16

    Any recommendations on what to get between these? Negligible yung price difference for me...

    I have reservations sa "eco" tires because of the road noise. I once drove a Camry with those installed and medyo maingay talaga or maybe nagkataon lang for that model. Hehe
