replaced mine 185/60 r15 last week, initial impressions, felt heavier than the previous ecopia 150, but really quiet and grip is good as well, no significant difference in FC

Is the heavier feeling comes from the installed tyre pressure being on the lower end ?

is xm2+ the best money can buy for 175/65/15 & 185/55/15? if money if not an issue, is there any other better alternatives? choices are so limited for these 2 sizes

nah, checked and adjusted tyre pressure immediately after the installation, maybe the previous EP150 was really that bald theres not much rolling resistance i'm not sure it sure as hell doesn't look that bad.

in fact i might go as far as saying FC improved

Without obtaining confirmation from you numerically , I would speculate car OEM manufacturer recommended 30/32(?) psi is being followed by the air 'pumper' .

At tyre manufacturer permitted psi of say, 36 - 40 the car steering simply can't be heavier , doesn't matter China or Michelin tyres .

Science suggests rolling resistance of brand new soft tyres increases relatively to your 'throw away' hardened tyres , everything else being equal .

Your statement in bold above is contrarian to science .

Edit: Am not trying to be argumentative ( with your statement in bold) , but to straighten up the wrong to the right .
