i had PP2 front and Parada S2 on from early last yr till mid this year.
PP2 is indeed quiet, and good gripping at hard corner on dry.

Now i have the Parada infront and PP2 goes at the back.
Its true that its noisy, but i feel its more grippy than PP2 on hard braking.
Saved me few times from faggots that simply change lane w/o signals

*I drive an olde non-vtec civic, on 15"
*
i seconded that. Yokohama fan here. their tyres are well known for grip.
but Parada's soft sidewall pattern is a big let down sweat.gif
i personally prefer C.drive and S.drive. noisy tyre but good in karak highway thumbup.gif
currently trying Yokohama AVS 205/55/r15 rear to go with the 195/55/r15 C.drive front.
btw, last time using PP2, thread can't last as long as those from Yokohama.

guys, any feedback about this Kumho Ecsta SPT tyre?

guys,

Between Toyo T1R , Yokohama S drive or Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3,

which one has better dry grip?

For spirited driving/hard driving.

Noise is not an issue.

Can some1 also indicate the price for Yokohama S drive and Goodyear for size 195/55/15.
*
tested all. toyo is an excellent performer in dry and wet condition / cornering. i could say good traction in wet but less grip. F1 and S drive are all rounder. currently using S drive at the rear.
noisy tyre but quite satisfied with it. plan to swap it with friend's F1 soon and get a better feel of the tyre with nice directional thread thumbup.gif

QUOTE(Magician @ Sep 14 2009, 03:05 PM)
I just change to goodyear duraplus

any comment on this!
*
tested. avoid this tyre for spirited driving. it took longer distance to stop under heavy braking compare to even a yokohama C drive.
wet grip 'ma ma tei only'. am not willing to sacrifice the pleasure of driving by going into 'extra mileage' with this tyre.
then again, this is merely my personal opinion icon_rolleyes.gif

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.

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 offer better comfort.
handling and overall grip / traction goes to A.drive R1 though.

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...


sure bo... i thought Hankook beat some of the so call better tires than A  Drive R1...
*
performance differ in real life. that was based on my own conclusion after driving my friend's car fitted with a hankook ventus....
pesonal opinion may differ though icon_rolleyes.gif

btw, new goodyear f1 tyre of 205/60/r15(is this size even available?) at 200 a piece. is this cheap??

agree with you. i throw away mine when it's still has 75% thread left. (swap with a friend that letting go off his
car, btw tongue.gif )
traction totally sux in wet... equally no grip in corner and hard braking sweat.gif using that nct5 when i was still a complete noob about cars and the goodyear shop in miharja recommended me that hopeless tyres a few years
back mad.gif

bro, yokohama never come out with 912. you could be referring to falken ze912.
both are almost equal but comfort and noise wise, falken912 is a lil' ahead.

@[email protected]
i finally got hold of the v12 on my friend's car. the overall performance is up to my expectation thumbup.gif
slightly more comfortable than c.drive.

btw, from my experience, sime astar 300 perform slightly better than d-01 in wet tongue.gif

Yoko a drive is available below rm200. Anyone knows about this tyre. Should i consider it?
S drive is available too in my tyre size but is way above my budget.
*
a.drive is an entry level tyre from yokohama. comfort level is on par with ze912 / pp2 but it wasn't designed for spirited driving.
sux in fast corner.
195/60/r15 of c.drive is available around 200 bucks too. more grip in corner but ride is firmer than a.drive.
then again, we can never have the comfort and performance at the same time... either one have to be compromised by the suspension setup tongue.gif

yeah! agree with you. pp2 was good in fast cornering but losing out on wet grip and thread life sweat.gif
my opinion could be biased; caused by the suspension setup and tyre presure in my car the last time around. tongue.gif
feel comfy' with pp2 back then; while am still on comfort suspension. ever since i shifted to 'stone hard' tein adjustable on my lousy car,
the slight different in tyre can be feel straight away sweat.gif

btw, among the directional thread i've d try, v12's noise level was the most tolerable.


am tempted to try federal. oly, any federal tyre on 205/55/r15?

batang kali -genting and certain strecth at karak highway...esp. near the river is kinda like haunted brows.gif
btw, be extra careful when driving at midnight too. once, i saw a big signboard in the middle of the road.
luckily i managed to avoid it. could be purposely put there by those unresponsible tow truck driver.

@[email protected]
aren't the ride is a bit harsh on 35 - 36 psi? are you on stock suspension, btw? hmm.gif
have you try the federal tyre? considering that the price of 16" ad08 is still sky high,
am kinda tempted to give it a go.

currently on s.drive 205/55/r15 rear. as expected from directional thread....it's not just a lil noisy but damn noisy tongue.gif tlr and re001 wasn't in my mind. wanna try other brand. looking around for avid hs4 but to not avail.
since i prefer directional thread at the rear. next up could be federal.

i am currently looking at other alternative. seems like 205/55/r15 is quite rare here.
no slick tyre for now cuz they sux' during rainy season sweat.gif
currently using S.Drive(rear), besides, i can't find the softer looking Yokohama Avid H4S.
does the Federal available in that size? where did you bought yours from?
me 'kaki corner' depending on mood brows.gif but i need the tyre as a replacement for my daily ride.
hence, it's only 15" tongue.gif
btw, a friend recommend me a barum bravuris but i've had a bad experience with that tyre before.....

i just changed to goodyear duraplus x4 tires....location at bridgestone tire shop at melawati

1 tire was about 180 free alignment and balancing
overall impression on this tire is definitely good tho steering got a little heavier..non too much but heavier a little.

be careful on hard braking. from my experience, the tyre takes longer distance to stop. smile.gif
btw, might get myself a direzza dz101 soon. no other option on 205/55/r15 sweat.gif
