Dear sifus, I'm currently surveying to change my Bridgestone Potenza S001 RFT. Planning to ditch the RFT and carry an electric pump due to the stiffness of the ride and somewhat intrusive road noise.

Main priority is on ride comfort since 90% of my drive are within the city. What's your recommendation on comfort oriented tyre and doesn't wear that quick? Budget to be around RM400 per doughnut. Doesn't have to be too performance oriented or else it'd go to waste for my almost uncle style of driving tongue.gif

Edit: I've seen many good reviews on Hankook V12E2 but unfortunately after asking around a number of tyre shop they don't carry it for my size.

Sounds like another no so common model, the shops I surveyed does not carry them.

Yohohama AE50, Conti UC6, Conti MC6, GY Excellence, GY Efficient Grip, DunlopD05. Any particular comment on these?

Found some shops on mudah selling them at 470 per doughnut. Quite steep and around the range of Pirelli P7 & Mic Primacy 4..
