Where do you stay? If you're in Klang Valley area, Jln Kapar or Jln Meru in Klang is still the best place for a good bargain for tyres and rims. I traded in my 2 week old tyres and rims for RM650 and top up RM750 for a pair of Hankook Ventus 195/50/15 (RSP RM135 per pc) and KR rims (Taiwanese - RM1350 RSP). Was a bit anxious about the Korean tyres at first but I'm satisfied with it so far. No problem at all going over puddles.

The shop I went to is Jooi Seng at Jln Batu Belah (near to Jln Meru/Jln Kapar also). I've heard there's another shop in Jln Meru which is well recommended (a corner shop near to a t-junction with traffic light). I've also heard about a shop in Sunway that's quite reasonable, but still Klang is the best.

You can check out the Tyres & Rims thread in Autoworld. Lotsa recommendations there.

Cheers,
TKJ

Slbeh,
I'm working in Klang, and its true, Klang is a heaven for Tyres and Rims.

My recommendation, either go for Michelin or Dunlop Le Mans (RM$168) Imported from Japan. This at the moment can be found in Senawang. I can give you the directions to it.

Heard it was good with the simple tyre test done on it.

About my Accent's VDO:

- Play CD-R, can only hear the bass, no treble (maybe coz the sources were from my 192kbps Mp3s, converted to Cda)
- Play pirated CD, slightly better than CD-R. Can hear the treble
- Play original CD, OK

Get a player that has aux, then as the accessory shop people to pull a line out from the back of the player to the front... mount it nicely somewhere and then you can plug your player to it. Wink Nice

It would seem like our VDO player is kinda .. erm.. BAD.

I have no skipping tracks so far, using ori/pirated/burned CDs alike. Only complain is there seem to be some faint beeping sound every now and then when u play a CD. It goes away after I turn it off and the turn it back on again. Any of you guys have the same problem ?

The accessory shop I went to wouldn't trade in for it la... I had to change my original rear speakers to a set of blaupunkts for VERY IMPROVED sound.

Accentric,

What's the brand for your original speakers? Just wanna check, mine is audiovox by the way. Currently i'm okay with my speakers/player. Just lacking of tweeter at front side. That would be easy to fix.

Just curious, did you switch ON the 'loudness' button on your VDO? I was so furious when i picked up the car due to lousiness of the sound system, but once i turn the button on, it became excellent. i think 35W should be reasonably good enough.

Cheap HU is only 35W. The newer models are actually 45W or 50W. Best to get the 50W so that the sound quality is much better. Pioneer is good brand for sound.

Don't be confused by the power rating, of how many Ws.

Generally, the higher the W (Watt), the better the sound quality. But you also hv to check out the S/N (signal-to-noise) ratio, the higher the better, meaning, 118 dB is better than 98 db. Cleaner, less background noise. Also, check the TDH (total harmonic distortion), usually expressed in %, meaning 0.002% is better than 0.1%. Meaning, the sound will be cleaner when lotsa of music. Also, look for stereo channel separation rating...ok ok...i talk a bit too much on electronics engineering. Just get the value for money Pioneer, they are damn good value for money. Oh, don't forget to match with a quality speakers.

State ur preference, what kind of music u usually listen. Then the shop (good ones) can recommend the best speaker for ur budget. Usually, good for the neutral ones, don't be too heavy on bass or treble, a good HU can be adjusted for rock, pop, jazz, classical, etc etc. Match this with a good neutral (not too bass or treble sound one). Put in some good insulation material.

Rule of thumb, cheap things no good, good things no cheap. Quite true most of the time.

Leh, I know a bit bit know.

I got a hi-fi setup at my hse, therefore know a bit bit lor. If you want the best value for music reproduction, best to go for neutral HU and speaker setup, they sound the best to me. Those bassy one, IMHO, sound bassy only, boom boom.

Have you ever wonder why classical music sound so natural? Go to a symphonic orchestra, and listen to one, then compare to a live pop concert, and you can hear the difference.
