ops, but i saw they selling wanli tyres here is 195/55/15. so weirdo.

yupp. they are available in those size too. but wanli 'could be' in the same league with nangkang. was fixed on my rented car while on vacation in taiwan sometimes ago.
wet braking and grip sux'.
from my experience, falken ze912 or even the cheaper dunlop d01 perform better overall.

thinner side walls??? low profile tires u mean la... yes... because of it's thread design and also it's compound...
lets say the size is 225/45 R17... u got Yokohama S Drive and Yokohama C Drive...
surely the Yokohama C drive will be more quiet as it's design for comfort and quiet...
as for Yokohama S Drive is designed for performance and its directional thread generate more noise...
so different design and also different cat. (UHP vs Extreme) will have different results...

yokohama loyalist here. from my experience, C.drive is quieter on even surface but it was noisier than S.drive on uneven surface sweat.gif btw, both excelled in all road condition with the C.drive being more comfortable
on normal driving.

if you are not into spirited driving, you can always go for A.drive. more comfortable than C.drive but offer less
grip in high speed cornering. never try MY01, but Bridestone RE001(??)'s thread isn't as lasting as those of C.drive.
comfort wise, A.drive and My01 is your choice.

guys, a tyre shop foreman told me a Goodyear F1 of 205/60/r15 cost around 200 bucks each. anyone can confirm
the price? hmm.gif
even my Yokohama 205/55/r15 cost me a bomb the last time around.

Hankook V12 is more agreesive looking... and it is not bad in terms of handling and comfort...

icic. That is something i learnt today. I feel the tires give better grip or handling compared to my stock tires but more noisy compared to my stock tires. Hmm, is there any 15" tires recommended for me? I want a silent tires. Thanks notworthy.gif

silent tires... what is ur size BTW...
u have Falken 912, Yokohama A drive for cheaper solution...
for higher range you have Yokohama A Drive, Toyo DRB, Michelin Primacy LC...
all the tires that i mention is meant for quiet drive and occasionally spirited drive not aggressive driving everyday...

Some feedback on Lim Tayar TTDI and Weng Tat SS14 Subang Jaya. Went to Lim Tayar to do alignment and balancing, was told by the boss one of the rims bent, need to replace. I ignored it, plan to repair later.

Few months later, went to Weng Tat, told the guy there about my bent rim and asked for repair cost. He said test first. After testing, alignment, balancing, he said that the rim was not bent, just tyre not properly fitted (guess Lim Tayar just wanted to promote their own rims). Happy with Weng Tat.

Few months later, need to do alignment and balancing again, went to Weng Tat again. The previous guy had left. Now another guy did for me. After did everything (plus the usual camber sales pitch), we went for a test spin together.

Him: Wow your tyres very noisy! You should use quieter tyres. I'm using PP2 on my Kenari, you can tell I'm so selective!
Me: I'm using Falken Ziex 912 wor.
Him: *quiet*
Me: 10k+ km only.
Him: Oh Falken 912 lifespan is 30k+ km only. Gets very noisy about mid-lifespan. You should try Bridgestone AR-10 next time.

Few weeks later, went Penang with frens. One of my fren sat in my car. Fetched him for <1 minute, he said, "Something wrong with your wheels. Bearing must be faulty. Seems like coming from the left." Went to SC after that for checkup, indeed left front bearings faulty, replaced under warranty. Car nicely quiet again.

No more Lim Tayar (fake diagnosis to promote own products) and Weng Tat (lousy diagnosis for tyre man) for me ever again.

well sometimes they make assumption as they like... but always stick to your believe...
912 if you take good car... i think you can last 40k km... but you have to check the tire pressure always
PP2 is different class with Yokohama A drive and also Falken 912...
PP2 really gives you good feedback and also handling...
for Kenari u have rear tires uneven wear issues... my fren is facing that issue also...
try out A Drive or A Drive R1 (Directional) by Yokies... so that u can flip to other side easily...
that is wat my fren is doing...

No idea about Weng Tat, but Lim Tayars are famous for their never ending con sales on asking you to do camber nuts and camber setting. Never go to them. I know my own needs on the alignment setting i like. smile.gif
