How long can XM2+ last? How long did XM2 last previously?

Usually UHP tyre last roughly 2~2.5 years. Some even shorter

It depends on the driver's needs.

I vote on better grip, handling & safety

Manufacturers say 10 years or 1.6 mm residual thread depth.
Other than this is just ..opinions and bias.

Wow.. all the while we're told it's 5 years but if I had Continental tires, I would try to see how long it would last.

Since my wife Rio came with CSC5, I think I would try to go for 10 years. The car has only done 13K and tires still look great. I was considering to change since tires were manufactured in 2014. Now I can be assured.

Any idea if the new material is of lower (manufacturing) cost with reduced tyre life, or otherwise ?

My tire size is 185 R60 15, today I just changed 2 x XM2 tyre as due to no stock for XM2+,
RM215 per pcs, free balancing, how come there is no discount for old stock even I ask them for many times?

This is Micheline dealer in Penang.

Thanks.
More grip and quieter would likely mean softer rubber material leading to shorter tyre life in relation to harder XM2.
At similar price levels I would give it a miss as I don't see having problem with so called XM2 noise.

Finally put the xm2+ (175/65/R15) on my car. Same tread pattern. Was thinking of upgrade to the primacy 4 (195/60/R15) but the xm2 arrived just on time. Their price is almost same for the same tyre figures.

After 500km done, the new Xm2+ Much for silent than xm2. Because they shared the same compound with primacy4 (as well as the silence feel) and could be as silent as primacy4. Tested on the most noisy flyover that I have to take it almost everyday(few km). Before this I can’t hear the lower volume music when I on that flyover (really noisy) Now it can hear it clearly.

And the most beautiful part is.... My car readings have 2.5km/L more compare to previous tyres. 13.5Km/L become 16km/L

As for performance don’t compare with the premium sport tyres as its not gonna performs as good as ps4 ps3 or any other thinker sidewall tyres, so xm2+ are relatively weak at super fast corner, mine is 65 profile. But It still can drive quite aggressively even on the wet and brake very well. I think it’s gonna be good with 55 profiles.

The other day I hit a big holes (on both passenger side front and back tyres) the round big one without the steel cover!!! I thought my tyres with stuck in the holes!!!! Guess what? And surprisingly no issue even with the rim. This tyre can absorbs super harsh road conditions!!
