My CSC5 & PSS were the worse... have to change after like 25K KM usage. Potenza at least 40K KM, Eagle F1 30K KM.

My CSC5 lasted over 40k km and F1D5 over 50k km but I admit they're already below the tread indicator and almost bald! 😂

I noticed that T005A yes is good absorbiing bumps and the handling is good consider it as touring tyres, but the noise is not as quiet as I expected.

What do you think Guanteik? What about your user experience after using the T005A for a while.

May be i am too picky..

The noise level was acceptable for me. It wasn’t as quiet as my Yokohama Advan DB used in my Accord in the past but compared to those all series I have used in my current ride, it’s all good.
The tyre is also well performed if your ride is relatively new which also means good condition mounts, struts, alignments etc

my experience with Yokohama Advan DB V551 (the older model) = it is more silent than T005a, but V551 i felt it harder when cruising over uneven road. T005a is more softer, and absorbing bumps better than the V551 in this area.

so far, the most comfortable tyres i had on my ride was the Hankook Ventus Noble 2, but sadly, the tyres side walls cracked like a razor in just couple months. The ride is superb, very subtle and silent, but the quality of the tyres seems bad. The treads almost badly worn in just couple months.

Bfsam999Trust me these tires are great! RM500 per piece isn't on the high side too, just reasonable in my opinion if it includes alignment/balancing and credit card usage!

Your tire size same like mine, very difficult to find tires, choices are limited as well.

Honkook Prime 2 i used before, agreed, really no good. Noisy and wear is terrible.

Please do update us how your experience with your new T005 / T005A.

235/45/18 Size for a Honda Accord 2.4. It's not that hard to find plus not a special size.

235/40/18 is a special size, hard and expensive ones.

BRO,

mine also accord 2.4

i also used the Hankook Noble 2 before = very quiet and comfort, but the problem was it wear is very terrible, one of the tire side wall cracked opened in 2 months. no more Hankook for me.

490 for mid-range hankook, i will sure take 500 for top-range touring Bridgestone T005a, no need to think.

Bridgestone pricing is very good lately.

totally agreed with you.

accord NVH and ride quality are the thing that really need improvement. The ride is really bumpy. I remembered the card came with PS3, a very good tires, but i end up trade in for touring tires cause it was so bumpy with PS3 in accord.

i m still running at 32psi.

hows the difference between 30psi and 32psi? any major differences?

Hi there, not much different between 30-32psi on 18inch tyre from my subjective experience. If inflated till 36-38psi , you may feel that the car lighter and turning sharper.

I believe some forumer put 280kpa@40.6psi on their 13 or 14inch tyre due to save fuel cost (load carrier@transporter) but i really not recommend it because of rubber lifespan and hot air grinding after friction, under some others condition that increase in pressure is enough to blown the tyre @@

Sry out of topic.

Bridgestone T005a is design more on quite and comfort ride. Pricing not bad too, is worth to buy =)

Guys, just swap my Teana 2.5 with 215/55/17 for RM385/pc 3 days ago.

I read the review said the turanza sidewall is actually stiffen to reduce damping. I quite sceptical how the tyre that claimed 'comfort' come with harden sidewall.

I think Teana NVH is among the best if compare to camry and Accord. But still felt the road feedback is too much on those badly paved road when i inflated the tyre according to the recommended 240kpa. I guess i may need to reduce it to 220kpa or lower, Any idea?

Initially i actually want to swap to Michelin Primacy 4st 215/60/17 for higher sidewall profile to maximise comfort, however the tyre shop said it might rub with the fender when full load. Also tried to search Yoko Advan DB v552, unfortunately these tyre is very hard to find in Johor Bahru area.

Right now the most comfort tyre i used was Continental CC6 on my Saga BLM, that tyre really silent and comfort especially on those worn tarmac road, but just too bad it stopped at largest 16 inch and my Teana 2.5 just miss the threshold.
