205/45/R16
Hankook V12 Evo - RM 255 @ Jooi Seng, Klang (May 09)
Falken Ziex ZE-912 - RM245 @ Jooi Seng, Klang (May 09)

you only have this 2 choice which is cheap and nice...
if you wan directional thread go for V12... but sure it will be noisier than 912... its grip is better...

for comfort n quiet drive Falken 912... but you can ask for Michelin Primacy LC also... around RM300 if not mistaken...

well fren... there is nothing as cheap and very good...
Falken is good if you wanna hv comfort and not bad traction...
of course the best tire around is Michelin PP2, Yokohama S Drives, Yokohama AD08, BS Adrenalin RE-001 or even Toyo's also not bad...
Hankook V12 is directional tires from Korea it will give you comfort + performance of course not on the par of those i mention above...
if you really wan pure handling and gripping... pls skip falken 912 or Hankook V12...

Its ok. Already change to Falken ZE912, within budget and same size as the stock tyre. Furthermore, wifey is not an aggressive driver. So I think it is good enough. biggrin.gif
