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.

Why there is no price list for 185/60R15 (for Vios)?

that is consider rare/weird size, hard to find tyres in that size lar...

how you know ABS kick-in? brake pedal vibrate right?

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!!!
*
NCT5 is really sucky lar, then i drive on highway from KL to ipoh (PLUS highway), can feel the crosswind also, when rain that time is really like drifting shocking.gif

QUOTE(GRexer @ Apr 22 2009, 04:02 PM)
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.
Hm... I've heard cases of guys on stock suspension Vios hitting the inside of the fenders on full lock wif 195/55R15 but couldn't really confirm as I don't know their rim spec
*
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.

Just change 4 of mine to Goodyear NCT 192 55 R15 at Hin Leong, RM153 each. Feel like not that cheap lah..............If in Klang Valley, normal tire shop how much ah?

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
*
both xm1 and ze912 also not good for cornering...

QUOTE(ralf @ May 3 2009, 10:45 PM)
i want, but now no budget.. smile.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

got money buy innova no money buy new tyres and take their tyres to re-thread?

QUOTE(zopu @ May 3 2009, 11:58 PM)
But most people commented Michelin tyres not suitable drive in M'sia road due to the design problem, especially at raining day, the water flow not fast enough. No doubt its smoothness and quiet, but get botak also fast... then u have to change another set liao... haha.. biggrin.gif

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.

what tyres you using? PP2?

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.

NCT5 can cause an accident that other tyres cant do, even above the safety mark, NCT5 is a C4 on your car.

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.

evne 13" you still can get the michelin Xm1, for 14" can get Ze912, PP2 and michelin, wonder why people must choose made in malaysia, i knwo it is cheap, but our life are not that cheap....

i hate people who use recon tyres, suddenly the car in front of you got 1 tyre explode and you are behind it, if want to die dont cause troubles to other...

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?
