thanks for your recommendation,
now i'm on 33psi front, 32psi rear.
hopefully it can give me better FC...

Softer pressure to get more performance???
if you have PP2 and ur fren have Primacy LC means same pressure to get same performance... ???
it is all depends on individual la isn't it???

Currently i am still on RE001, clocked 22-23k km dee, still have 50% tread..3 out of 4 tyre being patched before due to screw/nails !!! still left one tyre is virgin!:(  ..next month gonna change liao together with service.  nod.gif

RE001 dry cornering is brilliant, rubber wear down to 30-40%, groove show "J" pattern..looks really Good ! thumbup.gif PP2 lose quite abit.
RE001 on damp surface(wet), when it is new..ok. I notice at wet tarmac, it can be slippery, just becareful not to drive too fast. Be patient, listen to music and drive cautiously..

RM250 Michelin PS3 is the price i ask from few Penang Michelin dealer..still haven't decide which to go for..RE001 RM295-300. AD08 got ready stock, but price aar...after negotiate still RM480 per piece. Hmm..

Still haven't decide which to go for..PS3 pricing wise is attractive, tread pattern somehow dull, design is a decade ago. rolleyes.gif Can save rm200 if buy PS3 compare to RE001..if PS3 dry traction doesn't satisfied..then next change gonna be RE001 again ! cool.gif

RE001 is also known RE760 wor..that's i found on the net.

LoL,
you so unlucky...
agreed with you on what you said on RE-001. rclxms.gif

do update me if you change to new tires,
because i want to know the RE-001 can clocked till what mileage ...

since you are using RE-001 now,
you should go for PS3 for next tire change what,
so that you can compare each other with same car setting... tongue.gif

I believe your tires not hit the fenders,
it hit the inner splash shield cover, especially behind one,
try check the edge of the splash shield cover, you will notice something like this :

your re001 could last for 36K? that was good!
i replaced my ps3 at 16.5k mileage with about 50% tread left and go for re001 which does not flex as much. re001 is heavier thou.
*
RE001 heavy?
let me scales it on my next tire changing laugh.gif
coming soon...

QUOTE(yngwie @ Jan 12 2011, 07:51 PM)
after using both tire, my conclusion ; ps3 win in term of quietness, comfort and wet(intermediate) traction. but i've had more confidence with re001 on downpour. traction does not differ much but i just feel re001 is steadier! perhaps, this was due to re001 being heavier than ps3.
also, re001 had a much harder sidewall. thus, handling  goes to re001.
surprisingly, re001 match the aa rated ps3 in term of braking grip. also, progressive steering feel goes to re001.

price wise, re001 is almost 90 bucks cheaper than ps3(same size).
tread wear rating is 320 for ps3 and 220 for re001, which is quite a drawback as a daily ride.

btw, my next target will be the ku31.

I'm agreed on what you said, especially highlighted on Blue.
Everyone complained RE001 Traction only A,
but seriously speaking, i have no problem on wet braking.

what i read from here:

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tiretech/tec...e.jsp?techid=48

QUOTE
When looking at UTQG ratings it is important to realize that the Department of Transportation does not conduct the tests. The grades are assigned by the tire manufacturers based on their test results or those conducted by an independent testing company they have hired.


http://www.nsxprime.com/FAQ/TireWheel/utqg.htm

QUOTE
it is very important to know that the grades are obtained under controlled conditions, and are not completely applicable to actual usage.


http://autorepair.about.com/cs/generalinfo/a/aa120603a.htm

QUOTE
Each tire manufacturer has its own philosophy about UTQG ratings, especially when it comes to the treadwear rating. Some view the rating as a huge marketing tool, while others tend to think of it as an implied warranty. Be cautious when you compare ratings - they may not be "apples to apples".

Some times i have no time to go to the mines and malas to drive as well. Yeah they do everything for me already but still lari one side. I am using Super Pro PU steering bush so far no problem. Just that normally it will run left a bit only. Now its like dragging to the left. Hmmm... Well, their works are definitely A class. But sometimes may be their computer got some error or what.
