I'm using LS2000 Hybrid II on my Airtrek Turbo, very nice so far. Good balance between performance and comfort, very quiet and good ride with low noise.

It's one step below the UHP range so you can't really compare with 2 and 3.

If you want UHP I suggest you look at Falken FK452 as well, I wanted to get those but they don't manufacture the size I need (215/55/R17).

haha, cools powerful SUV u have there. 

Thanks for sharing, bro  smile.gif

Mind to share with me how much u pay for the LS2000 with the size 215/55/17 ? 

I was quoted RM503/= for both the LS2000 and Revspec RS-02

I paid RM480 per piece at that size including install/balancing/alignment at Hup Shun in Sunway, Revspec is around the same price but harder, not such a comfort ride.

Depends what you want really. I would get FK452 over Revspec tho.

If you're interested I've just detailed my Tyre buying here:

For that range you can also consider Hankook S1 Evo, Bridgestone Adrenalin RE0001 and Toyo T1-R.

Adrenalin is just too expensive so do T1R...
i think Hankook S1 is a safe bet... cheaper... it's review by german car magazines also pretty good...

btw u have nicely written up there... smile.gif
if not mistaken Falken 452 is not that recommended as the grip is not up to some ppl levels...


Yah some other Airtrek driver is using S1 Evo, seems like a good tyre.

Never heard any complain on FK452 on grip, only that it wears down faster cos soft compound.

PP2 is good, but a bit expensive as well.

I was using NCT5 on my previous car Satria GTi, worst tyre I've used so far. Damn noisy man.
