Been quite a while since the last I updated this.

I've recently purchase another round of v12e2 for another vehicle. To my surprise, it wasn't as quiet as my first purchase in 2018. Also, it seems it's quite difficult to find tyre manufactured in this year 2019. Most of the stockist are giving 2018 or even worst 2017.

Anyway, I manage to get this year's tyres ie 2019. However, it's kinda more noisier than the first I remembered. Of course it may not be a fair comparison as I was using Primacy 3ST in this vehicle before I changed it to v12.

Anyhow, I'll need to monitor it further. Maybe it needs a little run in. Who knows...

Tyre newer not necessarily better you should know that.. 2018 tires is good as the compound has stable make it more durable

I don't get this statement. Shouldn't you get new fresh tires instead of last year's manufacture?

Myth: "This tyre old already, I give you 'new' one. Performance better."

Bridgestone says:
"Tyres with an earlier date of manufacture will perform the same as 'fresher' ones as long as they have been stored properly and are undamaged.

You should hear before that #TyresAreNotBananas by Michelin, Malaysian always assume that newer tires are better and even just last year manufacture tyres are not good.. Tyres don't work that way and this is Malaysian mentality

So you are saying if given you the choice of 2018 and 2019 manufacture tires, you’ll take 2018?

Yep, I always do

Technically, what you say is true.

But due to our weather and the mentality of business owners, i don't think the tyre shops really store it properly. I've seen shops where they throw tyres from upper floors down to technicians on the lower floor (employee safety is one thing, tyre manufacturers state to never do this), storing tyres outside, unknown storage locations, etc.

The best bet is newer is better to be on the safe side.

Actually, you can't blame the mentality of the business owner, it all started off from the customer who always wants newer tyres then making owner unable to sell older tires hence always resulting them asking for newer tires from distributor/manufacturer. The cycle is like that, and I guess 95% of Malaysian have this problem not knowing the myth even manufacturer always create awareness. Malaysian just like to hear an opinion from their friends & family rather than the seller.

Not to sound sarcastic but it's good to know you'll be taking the stocks which most Malaysians don't prefer.

What I can say is Malaysian nvr learns even research has been done proven and educated by the tyre manufacturer 🤦🏻‍♂️
