To whoever wants to contribute to the price list, please post as the following format so that I can update it to the main list.

CODE

Tyre Size (example: 195/55R15)
Brand & Model - Price @ exact shop name and location (Effective date of price asked/changed) whether inclusive of balancing and alignment or other extra services


A very good example would be like the following
QUOTE
195/55R15
Hankook V12 Evo - RM200 @ Jooi Seng, Klang (Dec 2008) inclusive balancing + installation


Do not have to quote the whole posting, just add up whatever size/price you have and I will update manually as quoting the whole post would make the thread eat up too much resource at the server's side.

Thanks a lot.

sorry i think your XM1 is abit expensive...
i bought at Hin Leong Klang... cost me RM200/pc for full set...  smile.gif including everything...
Try to get the air pressure up to 34PSI... i manage to get 500km++ with full tank from my Vios...
FYI do not follow only the car manual... if you drive more than 2km from COLD start... at least you have to add another 2 PSI...
My Vios is sitting on 34~35 PSI in front... while the back around 32~33PSI...

Try it and let me know... if there is any difference...
Again that is because your tire is HOT... try to release partial of the air in the tire...
around half if possible... I always do that... then pump 34PSI in front... try it... yes it is a bit stiff... but you can feel the difference if FC...
You cannot compare a all... NCT5 is rubbish tire by GY... of course XM1 quiet... because it is a comfort tire...
I have a lot of experience where my ABS is activated when i go downhill... especially raining... no matter raining lightly or heavily...
ZE912 is in High performance category... you can try Hankook V12 also... good feedback from user at AW forum...
PP2 is Ultra High performance... it is a bit hard... noise i duno as i did not try Falken or Hankook b4...
handling is good... dry and wet traction is very good indeed... although a lot of ppl said it steering response is not up to the Ultra Performance category...
Zopu,
you can try Yokohama A drive or C Drive also...
i'm not sure about the price... A Drive definitely lower than XM1...

Cheers...
*
34-35psi in front and 32-33 at rear? i only pump 33 in front and 30 at rear lar, later scare no more grip tongue.gif

how come Ze912 is high performance? it should be in normal street category only lar, grip in wet not that good.

my rims only 14" so i dont think V12 is available in that size lor.


Added on April 21, 2009, 1:13 pmdont have the contact number of TEK MING, sunway, in post #2? hmm.gif

trust me... smile.gif I'm using 15" the recommended pressure is 215kPA which is around 31 PSI...
i use that on my Vios... yes it maybe a bit hard... try out... smile.gif
i check pressure once in a fortnight...
try Michelin or Yokohama...

or add another 2~3 PSI to your recommended pressure...

Couldn't be that low a pressure, my friend's new Vios is in the 30-s for it's pressure, front and rear different, but I couldn't recall since the car ain't wif me ATM.

Juz don't get confused with different pressure ratings as it's usually rated in psi or kPA

trust me...  smile.gif  I'm using 15" the recommended pressure is 215kPA which is around 31 PSI...
i use that on my Vios... yes it maybe a bit hard... try out...  smile.gif
i check pressure once in a fortnight...
try Michelin or Yokohama...

or add another 2~3 PSI to your recommended pressure...

At the moment this tyre size is still pretty new, as far as I know, only Bridgestone has this size locally in the stock tyres RE080.

New Vios runs a different pressure for front and rear, front being more due to the increased weight. Running higher pressure up front(for a front heavy FWD) will also reduce understeer.

Well that is an odd ize... try 195/55 R15...
i think you can find most of the price at this forum...
BTW Primacy for that size only selling at RM200 at Ban Hooi Klang... smile.gif

http://www.1010tires.com/TireSizeCalculator.asp

It shows there good fit... although it's diameter is a bit smaller... Diameter Difference: -1.27%
well you can try 195/60 R15 also as the diameter is a bit bigger... Diameter Difference: +1.95%

it depends on which tyres... NCT5 sucks... others i duno...
as i use Michelin from Day 1 when i start my driving...
the Vios come as stock... did not use very frequently... but i have a few cases which it activates my ABS easily...
especially going down slope when raining... unsure.gif

losing grip while going down slop in wet is pretty normal, especially light car like vios, unless you're using sport tyres, did i mentioned semi-slick? rolleyes.gif

well you can hear a sound... like when you try to shift without pressing on the cluth pedal in manual model...
not tat loud... but can hear... NCT5 that time i was using...
after change to PP2... no such problem... even in car park with Cement floor also... very very seldom ABS will get activated...
Sorry it is not normal..... if your tyre is good no problem... don tell me that go down the slope this will happen...
ask those tyre expert... this will not happen if the tyre you bought have good grip...

Try to go to www.tirerack.com read more on the tire review...


@kcng,

No that is not the speed... when you brake... which is makes your car stop faster???
you must have a good braking system... then i ask you... what is the contact between your car with the road???
TYRES!!!! this is the shoe... if you are wearing cheap shoes you lose grip very fast...
what if you buy a better shoe... of course it will improve...
of course this will repay you with more $$ you need to spend on the tires...

on Michelin PP2 i never have problem during cars and dogs raining condition... i drive 110~130 km/h on highway during that time also...
Remember... cheap things never come good... good things never come cheap!!!

Maybe you can try using 16x6.5 for your sport rims instead, might be a bit harder to find but it's a better fit. 16x7 and 205/55R16 wif too big an offset(meaning smaller digits) will make the tyres hit your fender.

You can opt for 205/50R16 as well but it's a "rarer" size in terms of Malaysian tyre sales and *might* cost significantly more.

195/55R15 hitting fender sounds impossible, could be his/her suspension faulty already? coz i heard if the suspension faulty it will have the symptoms of lowered.

stock vios suspension can take 15" no problem, if 17 or 16 then hard to say lar.

Hitting fender can be a few reasons, and also there's hitting inside and also hitting outside, what i'm refering to is more like rubbing on the inside when turning full lock(for example, u-turn), which is why I have no ideas if the person used the stock wheels, or aftermarket wheels, I would say aftermarket wheels wouldn't cause a problem as most of the time it's wider and also bigger offset, probably he was running the stock Type-G/S wheels which are very narrow and have a small offset.

I did not face this problem with 195/55 R15 PP2 with my 1st Gen Vios 1.5G...
actually i think maybe after market rim may cause that problem also... depends the offset lo...
if he bought a rim with nicely fitting should not be problem...
I saw a lot of ppl using 16" or 17" rim also they do not have complain...

to whom may concerns you may ask the users in the Vios forum...

Rm230 for 2 pcs.. tongue.gif
So is RM115/pcs.
I ask them about other brand, they say Continental and Falken is RM110/pcs but this Dunlop Sport J3 is better than them.
So what's better in fact? smile.gif

I got a offer for Silverstone tyre at a lower price but i heard a lot of comment about how bad Silverstone tyre are.
How true is it? smile.gif

thanks for the guide buddy!..but currently i've added 2 inch rubber on the rear springs to heightened a bit....but later if i switch to 205/50 it would have a big gap between the tyre & fender....now i can insert my four fingers......later will be 5...which is quite ugly if i drive alone..

around rm600 for 2 pcs. i will probably try the Advan or S-Drive.

you can try Hankook V12 195/55/r15... a lot of good review...
should not be more than RM200...  rclxm9.gif Michelin PP2 will cost RM230 cheapest and not directional tyres...
good dry and wet handling with reasonable price...  smile.gif

thanks a lot. i will take a look at the V12.

If you are interested in alignment and balancing, check out the tyre shop in Sungai Way, near the Hindu Temple (Eswari). They charge very reasonable, align&balance for 4 tires cost RM35.

I do there every 3 months.

or where is the place would the nail poke your tire...

@ceo684
yea... a bit hard not to too hard... if he wanna try Hankook V12 also can...
I'll give that a try also... smile.gif if too hard maybe buy another set of PP2 end of the year...
can put the V12 at my old SEG if i don like the performance at High way...

Guys, currently I'm using all stock 185/55/R15 and planning to change to 195/55/R15 for two front tyres and the back will continue using 185/55/R15 is it ok?

Or do I need to change all of it?

but cornerning with waja...hmmm... the suspension hard or comfort...
if confort i think you can just use PP2..
if stock hard already try ourt V12... 912's shoulder wear off faster than expected...

wonder why people still go for NCT series, it sucks and it hurt my ears....

for that kind of price, top up a bit more to get the falken Ze912 for a better deal...

how come there are size in 192? hmm.gif

If you want for smoothness and budget concern, i rather take Michelin XM1. sorry ya Falken user smile.gif smile.gif
XM1 old fashion, no trendy tread pattern, but it works during wet. Smoothness and quietness are something to shine about.. notworthy.gif

now 3rd set of XM1 on WiraLution, feels good during wet. No fancy fancy V shape tread pattern..I am swear by Michelin for comfort tyre.. notworthy.gif
trade in price for old tyre(still very new), rm80 rebate.. new tyre 185/60/14 they offer rm190, abit pricey but since they offer good trade price..just take it.

just saw a Toyota Innova skid, knock the divider and spin for few rounds at PLUS highway..cause of accident? Tyre burst, failure !! doh.gif

you are correct...
you may find out that michelin wears a lil faster... but in terms of comfort it never lose to others...
Primacy haven try b4... but my old SEG last time wears Michelin 175/70 R13 for er... 13 yrs... no problem...

as amduser said.. avoid swimming pools... haha...
I'm using Michelin PP2 185/55 R15 on Vios... yesterday from Ipoh to Penang around 7:45 onwards...
all the way raining from KK to the Juru... and i'm driving average 120~140km/h all the way...
no problem... BTW my front tyre around 50% and back tyre 2mm more the safety mark...
i go thru some small water pool... still ok...

Sorry, you may say that i'm a Pro Michelin user here... but it serve me well since i started my driving till now...
tried NCT5 as it is Vios stock.. it sucks... still have 30% over and i used it once on my SEG when i change to 15" left around 30% also...
quickly change it as you can feel very slippery when raining... further more last time i work in Penang...
everyday have to go thru Paya Terubong to Relau road... which is very dangerous...
as few times i press brake harder... my Vios ABS activated... and my SEG front tire locked...
luckily nothing happen...

now i'm taking advice from forum... another good tire is Hankook V12... which i am going to try out next month...


@Zopu...
I'm not the user... but i heard from AW forummers... they comment that the side thread very easy to wear off...
but it is the softest from compare to V12 and PP2... PP2 is the hardest...
Cheers...

Im using 185/60/14 right now.. Just wonder Michelin model suit my rim. Is PP2, or XM1? How about Hankook? Which model? For Falken is Ze912 right?
The price pls? I only knew Ze912 is around RM140/pc in Sunway.

Michelin XM1 have your size... others not quite sure...
look at the list... My dad Avanza just change to XM1 195/60 R15
performing as expected...
if you are not into Hard cornering the Falken 912 or Michelin XM1 is ok...
i have one case b4... i crash my car... sport rim spoiled...
but the tire still can use back... Michelin XM1...
so 1 year without sport rim... sad.gif
Xm1 soft... comfort and also not noisy... wet performance... good...
you can ask for Michelin Primacy also... duno have or not la...

what is your budget... ???

Haha...those talk are from yesteryears...PP2 can cut water like a knife...hehe although not as surgical as the GYF1...but its up there with the best.
Dun let the grand daddy old scool thread patterns fool you..Michelin have done their home work...but PP2 for me are a bit on the rough side although can be said soso quite tires.

Yup...rubbish tires...you can't even go a bit faster on the round about...in fact you have to slow down a lot.

Dunlop does make good tires...but I've yet to see one is a very long time except the old SP9000 and Sportmaxx (not supported in M'sia).
Ever since Dunlop using Sumitomo rubber, the Malaysia range of Dunlop tires are worthless.
Another lousy tire is the Barum...borrow my friends Waja, floored the accelerator and all hell broke loose.

My Waja friend than toke a ride in my stock Vios (with uprated tires and suspension) just to show him what really good tires are about and his jaws dropped.
Very - very late braking, snapping the rears and the car just corners like it was on rails.

Try V12 Evo if got size. 100% better than Dunlop D01.

the good thing about Dunlop D01 is the price ! got mine very cheap 195/50/15 fit on Sagalution, cheaper than local goodyear !Treadwear is pretty good, sure long lasting..

but seldom drive the car, so no comment.

the later batch is from Indo, luckily mine is made in Japan.

A lot of accidents and lost lives could be avoided if ppl pay attention to their driving and also tires used...so no point in skimping on tires. Get a good one. If using 15inch and below, most top range tires are still affordable.

Never use cheap tyre, go for something decent especially for 15" and smaller eg PP2. Not worth fixing the car when lost grip.

haha... ppl in malaysia u know la...
any way... my dad use Michelin all the way... even his spare car Toyota KE-70...
my mum scold him wat for use Michelin energy for that car... seldom drive 1 week may be 3 times...
except his Volkswagon 60's is using cheap tyres... as that one 1 week only use 1 time...

but i'm breaking the tradition... trying hankook V12 on my vios next month or so... smile.gif

BTW i think XM1 tires very cheap now... last time when i started to drive 13" XM1 still cost around 160 woh (in Ipoh)...
now only 130 only wat... that day i change on the Avanza in Klang XM1 195/60 R15 only RM200 not bad...
185/55 R15 PP2 for smaller car like Vios and City also cost around there in Klang...
V12 195/55 R15 cheaper as it is only RM175 in Klang... i think that price ok...
a lot better than NCT5... around the V12 price but safety... sweat.gif

V12 got available in 14"? hmm.gif

i'm wondering why some people like to install huge rims on small car with very little horsepower, for example, kancil with 15" and wira with 16" or 17" shakehead.gif

wont it feel underpower?

and also why those BMW have huge rims? if downgrade to smaller rim size will have more power ka?

V12 got available in 14"? hmm.gif

i'm wondering why some people like to install huge rims on small car with very little horsepower, for example, kancil with 15" and wira with 16" or 17" shakehead.gif

wont it feel underpower?

and also why those BMW have huge rims? if downgrade to smaller rim size will have more power ka?

well said... a lot of ppl just want to look nice...
but they did not know they have to pay more for the tire until their tire change...
example 17 inch tire will cost more than 400 if you want better grade... of course they will say no need...
coz who will pay for a RM1600 tire change on a wira... ya there is some ppl will do so...
do mostly they will change to lower grade or cheaper tires below RM250...
they will think like no one know/see mah...
once i saw a E class Benz fitted on indo brand (if not mistaken) i was like wah...

so far i've never see expensive car running on made in malaysia tyres, i mean those BMW and merz lar, not civic, camry and accord...

style really not that important, unless the bigger rims can give me extra horsepower and improve aerodynamic, otherwise i will stick with 14" (stock) or 15"

i still dont know what's the point changing to larger rims in low horsepower and low torque cars.....

if me i will prefer my car look as stock as possible on the outside, but inside might have a supercharger brows.gif impossible lar....

and still wondering why cars like BMW have a large rims hmm.gif

maybe if stock BMW come with 17" if we downgrade to 15" got more power laugh.gif

WRC car i think only 15" or 16" what they want to the best time and to win the race, not win the chick and become rempit (edisi kereta)

90% of the time ppl. use huge rims just for cosmetic changes.

I kinda agree, WRC cars use those sizes, last month (or was it two months back), Toyota brought in a TRD prepared Vios for the Sepang track using 14inch hmm.gif

vios dont have that much horsepower and torque to move larger rims lar laugh.gif

the larger the rims the more power you need to move it, but i heard some said slightly larger rims is good for long journey, like 14" > 15"

Pros -
Running on 2nd set of RE001 now
- Sikly smooth, Quiet..not bad for performance tyre.
- Tread wear is pretty good, you don't see uneven wear on outer tread block..
- Sidewall is hard, good for cornering..But review said YokoAD07 is even harder..and grip better in corner.
- Tread pattern is attractive, beautiful ..agree?wub.gif

Cons
- Pricey, compare to its competitor
- On damp surface, performance start to deteriorate..

Two shop opposite PranginMall.

a)Goh Swee Hin, very popular shop as they have run the business for many many years.. notworthy.gif
b)Hock Cheong..

rm350 for 215/45/17 for Korean Hankook ok la...for that price i think i will go for Michelin PP2, Briggy RE001, GoodYear F1 Assy which is under rm500 mark nod.gif
what is your budget for tyre? 215/45/17 is a common size, normally 215/45/17 cost at least rm300 per piece..If you want cheaper, try Silverstone ..
rm200 can get Indonesia made tyre liao. nod.gif

Hankook is Korean made but so far no user complain about the tire...
it is more comfortable than PP2 but cornering is not as nice as PP2...

hmmm... y everyone think of changing to 17"... with Vios...

BTW Vtec_lee,
you size is over the 3% rules.... smile.gif
refer to the following chart... 1 is over rules and the other one is ok...

Hi Michael9413,

Thanks for your feed back. But i not understand about chart you provided. Can you please explain more details abt it?? sorry for any inconvenient.

Besides, for your opinion...what size of rim i should change or stick with original 14" rim??any idea??

I plan to change 17" because it will make my car look more "chun" haha!! brows.gif

Size over 3% rules is it mean that not suitable to install 17" for vios and it will cause underpower??? hmm.gif

well you can refer to the quote attachment...

QUOTE
Plus Sizing
Plus sizing your wheel & tire combination was designed to enhance vehicle performance and looks by allowing  fitment of larger diameter rims and lower profile tires. The theory is that while making these changes, you keep the overall tire diameter within 3% of the original equipment tires. This is important because larger variances can cause problems with transmission shift points which can decrease fuel mileage. It can also confuse braking system computers which can even lead to brake failure.

Here's the rule of thumb for "plus sizing":

    Plus 1:
    Increase section width by 10mm
    Decrease aspect ratio by 10 points
    Increase rim diameter by 1 inch

    Plus 2:
    Increase section width by 20mm
    Decrease aspect ratio by 20 points
    Increase rim diameter by 2 inches.

This is not exact, but it will usually get you in the right ballpark. We always recommend consulting with the people you are purchasing the wheels and tires from to ensure fitment.
for me er... not sure about the availability of the size but you can only put 195/55 R15 & 205/45 R16
this is the most suitable one for you and also available in the market...
the 2 sizes that i give you is suitable for your budget...
remember if you use more lower profile tires the chances of your Rim get spoiled easily...
you also can go for the 205/40 R17 if you want...

you only target RM350/tire and for 17" seldom you can get good tires...
good tires is important... as life is...
tire is like your shoe...
if cheap one very slippery if a lot of water...
shoes that have better grip always a bit expensive....
