Tornado sir, Somehow I missed this discussion for so long !
ER 60 is superb choice and I am sure you would be enjoying the ride. In my previous car (Verna) I had used PLC and ER 60 back to back & following is the experience.
0 - 100: Stock bridgestone tyres
100 - 45000: Yokohoma S drive - 4 tyres: Got deceived by the looks only to repent later. After approximately 25K kms, humming noise started increasing gradually. Though I still had some tread left, decided to replace them and go for completely silent tyres. Only 1 Slow Puncture - which was rectified without using spare wheel.
45000 - 100000 - Michelin PLC - 4 tyres: After noisy ride for around 20k kms, it was a superb experience for next 55k kms. I had absolutely 0 complaints with the tyres - not even a single puncture. 55k kms for a set of soft tyres is wonderful mileage (that too for a set of 4). Though it had some tread left for another 5K, I replaced it before a long trip
100000 - 110000 - Bridgestone ER 60: Though I was completely satisfied with PLC, I wanted to try Bridgestone too since ER 60 was considered equally good to PLC in terms of silence. In addition BS was supposed to be more resistant to side wall issues. Considered Ecopia too - but it was very new in the market and not much feedback was available.
My experience with ER 60 over 10K kms (before I sold the vehicle 110K) was very good. For initial 100 - 200kms I felt ER 60 was slightly harder than PLC and hence ride quality was a notch stiffer. Got used to it after that. Hope you are loving them too !
Note: On my new Ertiga, got Goodyear Duraplus as stock tyres. So went for replacement with PLC (3ST wasn't launched then).
