please recommend me a set of R13 tyre
wira 97 original wheel
tyre spec should be 175/70 R13, correct me if i m wrong

requirement
1. budget around RM600+/- for 4pcs tyre + alignment + balancing + valve
2. good grip
3. vibration, noise, harshness and comfort is no a concern. for my cheapskate budget all rounder tyre is impossible,
    i willing to put every single cent into grip than anything else. 10+ yr old wira is noisy anyway.
4. pls don't tell me that my budget impossible for high performance tyre, must top up budget to gazillion
    i know that already, just give me sumthing around my budget

any other brand of tyre can recommend to me ?
hi chemistry, just find out this post above, hows your though on yokohama A-drive ?
*
My car is another 10 years older than your Wira. Noise insulation doesn't matter to me.
Yokohama A drive was not my choice actually. I wanted a Goodyear Ducaro GA but the shop didn't have. The boss and my father are very good friends, therefore it's kinda embarrassing if I turn to other shop.

I couldn't tell how A drive performs. It's just so so, nothing special.
I wanted a Goodyear Ducaro GA because its thread was quite long lasting, and I like its groove. laugh.gif
I also used Dunlop LM701, Made in Japan. Thread not as lasting as Ducaro GA, but groove is nice.

Seriously, at this size (175/70R13) we can't talk much about performance. All brands are BOLEH PAKAI la, not much difference 1.
Just one reminder, don't buy Sime Tyres.

Free valve and balancing has become a standard package to attract customers. I can even get free alignment from my father's fren.

Please do not hesitate to inquire the shop about these freebies.

thanks for feedback.
since all R13 tyre is for entry level only, i will stop wasting time looking for 'better'.
will just continue seek for XM1, but heck jb tyre price really that uncompetitive....

Oh ya, the tyre shop also quoted XM1 (R13) @RM160, Bridgestone AR10 is RM150.
Remember nowadays tyre valves & balancing is already a standard freebies. Don't get conned.


Added on July 30, 2010, 1:36 pmAnother reminder,

the abovementioned prices were quoted in Bahau, NegeriSembilan. I'm not sure other places how much.

I'm also shopping around for a pair of 175/70/13 tyres. Seems that size is not listed in the price guide. Any reason for that? I though this size is still very famous?

I'm using Yokohama A Drive and I've been loving it. If I can't find a better tyre, I will stick back with the A Drive. BTW, I have really bad experience with the Goodyear, crashed my car driving a pair of new Ducaro. So I would NOT recommend it at all. Michelin is good, but it's too expensive. No experience with the Continental before.

I will need to change it this Saturday, let me know if you have found a place to change yours ok? Maybe can go together get a group purchase discount!  tongue.gif
Pusat Tayar Klang, Kota Kemuning - Yokohama A Drive : RM135 (include balancing)
Ban Hooi Klang : engaged, cannot call
Hup Sun Sunway : Yokohama A Drive : RM140 ; Falken SN828 : RM135 (stay away from this!)
Tek Ming Sunway : Yokohama A Drive : no stock ; Goodyear Duraplus RM135

Thanks for your kind sharing !
My tires are still having sufficient thread, so not gonna change in this half year's time I guess.

175/70R13
Kenda Komet Plus KR23 - RM120 [ Goodwill 32 sdn bhd - Taman Prima Selayang ] (Aug 2011)
Michelin XM1 - RM165 Chuan Tyre Masai (Jan 11)
Michelin XM1 - RM155 Jalan Reko Kajang (Jan 11)
Toyo Teo Plus - RM205 TopGrip Motorport Masai (Jan 11)
Yokohama A Drive - RM138 Puchong (May 11), balancing/alignment/new valves inclusive.

Wow! can't believe Toyo is so much more expensive than Michelin. Thought Michelin is top brand already.
I'd like to go for Michelin, but sadly my hometown tires shops seem not very keen on this brand. They keep pushing GY la, Yoko la, Continental la...all brands they have, just Bridgestone & Michelin they don't have. (not to mention TOYO).
