Ic. Thanks
What the ?

Dunno yet bro, let me test first ermkay ? tongue.gif

I'm not track 'kaki' like my friend tongue.gif . This year only, he already changed 3 sets of tyres. All this due to Sepang HPCs and Genting whacked out session.
I drive slow like an uncle tongue.gif

It takes skills and guts to handle NCT5 during wet and corner especially when the thread is almost thin. As far as I remember during using the NCT5, I had 2 times controllable skid during high speed. The rule of the thumb is never ever hit your brake hard when driving on wet or emergency braking. Try to control the accelerator first when slowing down and slowly pressing the brake carefully. When entering corner always practice brake first and enter and not braking during cornering. While cornering the only thing you have to do is control the accelerator carefully when taking the apex. Unless there is urgency to press the brake then you have to do so.

I'm using 195/55/R15. Bought it around RM225/piece with production date of 'Week 38 2009'.

dont risk your life lar, will harm the other as well, never put trust in NCT5, even a whole new tires can skid like no tomorrow.

came as stock along with the car....smooth at the begining but after about one year (25k) of using...the steering vibrate no matter how much balancing is done..and when its being rotated on the balancing machine..i can see its "jumping"/not smooth....but not when the tire is new .....my opinion might be wrong.... laugh.gif
but grip during corning on dry is good and wet not bad as well...and if u want to get better cornering..pump extra 1 or 2psi for this tire...

if you wanna compare PP2 with 912... sorry to say but i have not used 912 b4 coz that is performance level not UHP...
comfort - 912
handling - PP2
Grips - PP2
Quiet - 912
912 sure more comfort as it aim is performance comfort... not like PP2 where is focus more on its handling.. if about handling then PP2 beats 912... because of it's harder sidewall it give you harsher ride but better handling... grips for PP2 in Wet and Dry also will be better than 912 again... PP2 hydroplaning/aquaplaning is one of the best in it's class... but in terms of quietness i still choose 912 coz PP2 will get a lil noisier when it thread wears after 60%...
2 of the tire is in total different categories...
u need better comments and recommendation please give us ur car model, tire size also... then choose... priority... Noise, Handling, Grip, Comfort... 1~4 rank it... there is nothing to perfect but just u can to compromise a bit on certain area...
u can try Hankook V12 if you are using some sizes as it give you similar performance like PP2 but noisier, a lil more toward comfort and the last cheaper...

How much i can get hankook v12 or michelin primacy?. Is michelin primacy lc cost more than PP2.
Another tire I'm interested in is conti sport-contact. Anyone knows the market price now. Currently on standard tyres silverstone kruizer ns500. Time to change since more than 40K using the standard tires. Tyre size is 195-55-R15
*
try Hankook V12... as it's performance is comparable with PP2 but the only down side it is a lil noisier than PP2...
its comfort also better than PP2, in return PP2 will be superior in Hydroplaning and also Handling... for Primacy LC, i would say if you driving style is a lil aggressive then it is not suitable for you... this tire is for those luxury saloon which will be driven by non-aggressive driver... as it is soft (comfort) and quiet...
so if you wanna switch from ur current tire i think Hankook V12 evo is ok for you... smile.gif
