You missed out Pirelli. It should be on par with michelin. Some countries Pirelli sits higher than Michelin.

Yup agree. I have updated the post and add Pirelli into the mix. Maybe their brand become really well known after Formula one but their products from press test results are not performing well compare to the top 4 manufactures

I do not really agree with Hankook & Dunlop in the mix. Dunlop is own by different owners across the globe.

And Hankook ? really ? I have my doubts.

Dunlop top end range is quite expensive though, similar like those other brands with performances comparable
too, plus it's one if the oldest most popular brands.

Hankook is also creeping up there, maybe borderline now as their product performance and quality starting to match those top brands. I might even tend to put Hankook over Yokohama now, at least.

Actually hankook is not bad. Audi/VW already selected them as OE for quite a number of models

Pirelli? I have multiple cars that came originally with Pirelli P7. I dont have good impression on them. Grip is nothing fantastic, but for sure it will always bengkak on the contact surface

Yes Hankook is actually pretty good now. Their V12 Evo and S1 Evo series are giving top brands a run for their money. Their extreme category RS3/4 are also matching those popular AD08R etc2. Their mid range touring models in Prime and Noble series are also decent. So across the board Hankook has a pretty solid product line up. That's why Tirereviews UK has moved it up from mid level to premium brand category since a couple of years ago.

Pirelli has always been premium since it's a very old brand and their prices are as high if not higher than Michelin. Quite surprising to hear if the P7 often bulging though.

I changed one of the car from P7 to V12 Evo2, and the other car from P7 to PS4.

Dry grip wise, PS4 feels better, but when on wet roads, the V12 feels better. Not sure if its because of the deeper grooves on the V12

Hmm PS4 should be better too in the wet. That's what most of the tests showed and based on my own experience too. The tread depth almost the same at 7.5-8mm.

The problem is what kind of wet performance comparing? Handling, hydroplane or braking?
If not define clearly is hard to judge and people feel differently.
If say about handling PS4 does excel, but nowadays the latest hankook S1 Evo3 is wet braking campion base on the latest test from tyre review.
PS4 excel in overall balance thus maintain the no.1 spot. BTW, the best hydroplaning & low noise tire went to GT Radial Sportactive 2 (Which is a surprise for me)

TS, how are assemblers/OEMs in this region (SEA) source their 'OE' tyres in terms of:
a ) specification and/or material requirements;
b ) selection criteria, and
c ) respective sources/suppliers for respective plants for Perodua, Yota honda etc ?

Are OE tyres and aftermarket tyres of similar 'brands' are likely to have differing performance criteria?

The reason I enquire about SEA OE tyres is that other regional OEM's is said to have OE tyres from a certain tyre manufacturers whose performance characteristics differ from that of aftermarket tyres.

I was comparing PS4 and V12E2 and to me PS4 is better in both wet surface without water puddles or with puddles.

What is the succesor for highly rated V12E2?

Asked around, V12E2 no longer available.

From reading, VP3 is not as good.

VP3 & V12E2 is totally 2 different category of tires from Hankook
If not mistaken VP3 is under Premium Touring Summer tyre, while V12E2 is under UHP Summer tyre..
I think maybe is their marketing way to clear existing VP3 stock in market. laugh.gif
