After done with some reading on the interwebs and feedback here, i have decided and bought myself a set of Michelin PP2. Previously i was on OEM tyres which is the Goodyear NCT5 and finally rest at peace clocking 67000km with less 10% thread.

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.

er.. not like that la... if you drive like normal then 40k ~50k... if you drive aggressively about 30k la...
but NCT5 u dare to use until left only 10%... i throw it away when 40% or more left...
u get better confidence in wet and also better handling... traction much more better than NCT5...
but in return of safety it will burn ur wallet a bit more... what size have u changed to and how much???

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'.

Looking back to the question raised by michael and my other previous post, I was referring to the pp2 and not nct5.

LoL
the moment the vios arrive at my house, i junked the NCT5 and throw in T1R...
laugh.gif

actually u can try trail braking into corner its nice if done correctly... ... but only for the new dugong vios... because the new dugong vios can downshift and hold 3rd gear which is just about the nice balance between weight shift and power to throttle out of trouble if arises...

the older vios is either u maintain D (if GB maintain on 4th gear, u are screwed if obstacle come up) or stick the gear to 2 and u get too much power if u decided to throttle... lol
a cheat way for the previous vios is to disable the O/D ratio but somehow it is not the same as the dugong vios... lol

I'm not kaya to use Toyo like you tongue.gif

Nevertheless, I'm seldom trash my daily car because it serves its own purpose and wouldn't burden my pocket for petrol as well.

PP2 is more towards high speed handling (harder side wall), a lil quieter than V12 and hydroplaning is best in it's class...
but u get harsh ride if you have already a sport suspension (not suitable for ppl driving Honda's) for me Vios still ok, Wet cornering may understeer sometimes

Yeah, maybe because of the harder sidewall, I'm currently using 'wannabe sports setup' as well (tanabe spring with monroe reflex), during highspeed (120 km/h and above) i can feel the hardness but during corner it really response.
