Not so good. Kumho claimed it as UHP level tires but actually more like just entry level performance. Tirerack USA commented in their review that the performance is not quite "Ultra High" category as claimed, meaning like UHP pretend tires?? laugh.gif

Agreed with TS on advan Fleva dry grip, disappointed with it. My previous tyre was Re003, much better on dry grip but lose in wet compare to Fleva. Sidewall of Re003 are more aggresive than fleva which more suit with my car. I feel fleva's sidewall already too soft for my car, thus, V12E2 sidewall are too soft?

From my experience and feeling, fleva’s sidewalls are perhaps 20% stiffer than v12s. My ride is already quite stiff as it’s a performance based car and I actually want softer sidewalls instead.

Look at it this way, how often do we ‘trash’ our car. 80-90% of the time, I drive like an average joe. Hence, softer sidewalls are better for me as my set up is quite stiff already.

I’ll update more when I have the chance to test these types on Genting roads.

Still not convincing enough. For example in this test it ends up only 7th out of 8 with highlight weakness comment:
"Poor wet handling with slow steering and long wet braking distances."
http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Article/2018-...P-Tyre-Test.htm

In this review though it ends up middle ground but some assessment in this review is done by "subjective feel" so a bit questionable.
Highlight weakness commented: Poor balance during emergency maneuvers.
http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Article/2018-...r-Tyre-Test.htm

And then there's this test where it came out 2nd! biggrin.gif But note that there's no explanation from the media reviewer of how they score the tires, so even more questionable! smile.gif
http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Article/2018-...r-Tyre-Test.htm

Generally I don't quite trust Kumho tires, coz besides never really reading any solid dependable reviews on them, I also often heard bulging reports on them. If price is close to V12E2, might as well get V12E2 coz more proven.

No contest, the 914 is lower level than V12E2. For Falken the comparable model is the new FK510, you can try to check that out also coz it's newer and might be even better than the V12E2 but maybe at a slightly higher price. Until this FK510 comes, the V12E2 is still the best value for money now.

Should not be too much difference, maybe just a bit faster wear. I'd say it should last at least 40-45k km minimum.

Yup, it's the best value for money now until later when the new Falken FK510 arrives, then we'll see how the pricing for that one will be.

By right should still be UHP coz still the same tire compound, same construction and design, same speed rating and UTQG rating, similar load index too. Not sure why the website puts it like that.

S One Tyres & Sport Rims in Setia Alam. I just changed there last week. They give very competitive prices, maybe one of the cheapest.
