there are few more shops selling cheap. Beside S One, can try Teoh Brothers at klang or Oscar Tyre.

Hope u don't mind to PM me the quoted price for the tyres you bought last week.
*
I only bought small size 195/55/15 for just rm170/pc. Your size should probably be around rm300-325/pc.

Another option is try call E.D. Tayar. Their prices usually are also very competitive.

That's why the comfort level is still good. Next time can try the new Falken FK510 as that one should have stiffer sidewall but probably would not be as comfortable too, somethings got to give I suppose. smile.gif

Oh yup sorry my mistake.. I've rechecked and all the Evov12 are made from korea.

Im just curious whether there should be specific tyres for suv.

Btw thanks for clearing that up! rclxms.gif

I dont know guyz, I dont like the V12E2. I felt like the side wall is abit too soft for my liking. I fitted 4 new V12E2 on my suprima s early this year and i cant confidently corner like i did with my previous RE003 or PS3 set. Cornering doesnt feel grippy as before. Anyway this is just my honest opinion.

Yeah V12E2 sidewall is on the softer side, RE003 has stiffer sidewall but PS3 is also rather soft too. Actually the V12E2 grip is still pretty good, maybe just the soft feel you're not used to. Have you tried increasing the tire pressure a bit? Anyway, people may have different preferences so yeah fair enough.

Yes i did pump the tyres to 35psi and it felt the same to me. Well... im not saying its a bad purchase, at least it doesn't squeals or slip on wet road. I would say its perform the same as goodyear F1 D5. That tyre also have soft side wall.

Not sure if my impression is wrong, but this is what I think about it:

Yeah, indeed the sidewall did feel a tad soft.

After a high-speed turn in, it does take a moment for the car to 'settle in', but when it does, it grips without complaining much, if at all.

I'm not sure, but I THINK that a softer side-wall compliments most passenger car's soft suspension set up, so to not 'load' the suspension too suddenly which can cause the tires to skip.

Driving very predictably albeit quickly, I think this tire ultimately has very high dry and wet grip.

The downside is that incredibly quick lane changes feel unsettling, and a somewhat slow response, like when you are zipping between lanes in very heavy traffic at high speeds.

But we shouldn't be driving like that anyway! tongue.gif

I think the tire is suitable for all SUVs and sedans, even sports sedans.

Probably not so good for our sporty JDM friends (MX-5, S15, R34, MR-S etc) and their MY counterparts (modded Wira, Satria etc) who drive on average 50 km/h faster than us even during traffic jam.

Agree it's pretty similar to F1D5 but I think the V12E2 has higher grip overall and definitely more silent.

Well it might give the impression of slow response in quick directional changes due to the softer sidewall. But to me I don't feel hampered when I need to drive fast/more aggressively. I think it's still fine for sporty cars too, it all depends on driver's feel and preference of how they like their cars to behave. IMHO tires that have very stiff sidewall also not really suitable in Malaysia as the road sometimes not smooth and like you said will instead make the tires easier to skip and loose traction while the softer ones may still grip better.

Yup. In fact, I would say it doesn't actually have a soft side-wall per se, just soft in comparison to its category, i.e. UHP.

Could probably remedy that easily: just go ultra low profile!

When I wanted to go for lower profile, the tire shop guy gave me a funny look and pretty much ignored me and just changed the stock setup anyway.

For reference, its a D segment with 215/50/17, I wanted to go 45 or even 40 tongue.gif
