Toyo, Falken, Yokohama made from Japan, wet and dry gripping is 5 stars (rate by me)... reliable wise is less coz soft tyre sure short life. And of course the prcing also 5 stars la...

Goodyear tyre is local made, but the rubber is superb and being export to foreign country like Europe and Japan/Korea. so dun under estimate gooyear tyre. i rate a 4 stars for value of money vs quality.

others like Michelin and Bridgestone are major from Thailand, those ori michelin and bridgestone from europe is damn expensive, one pc of 14" cost same as 17" tyre.. ~RM4XX and based on my experience on michelin, made from Thailand also not bad, 4 stars given.

the rest i have no comments as i havent experience well, Sime i rate 3 stars, and friends comment on others 2 stars as well.

falken is pricey...... for 15" can reach RM3XX depends on types of 15" and model.

mind using Falken DN614 14" and that time was almos touching RM2XX back in 1 years++

after trade in.

btw, off topic liao.

Got la, coz I just changed all my tyres to MPP2 few days ago. Fantastic tyres, better than MPP on my other car. 195/55/15

The treadwear index MPP2 is 200, compared to XM1 is 320. The higher the number the longer it last, but less grippy.

Not sure if anybody is still reading this thread.

Anyway just to share, that I changed my 3 yearsold stock tyres to Michelin XM1 (all four of them) just now. Actually the tyres are due to be changed, furthermore I had a puncture earlier. I don't know much about cars let alone the tyres, so after reading this thread I insisted for XM1 although being offered cheaper and (so-called) better HANKOOK tyres.

Shop location: Taman Danau Desa, KL (near my workplace)
Price: RM185 / tyre
Inclusive: Valves, balancing, alignment
Duration taken: 1hr (+-)

chkwong you really RACUN me lah. Hopefully I'm making the right choice Smile

Anyway, here's some tyre-test web I stumbled upon;

Very Happy Next time, try MPP2. Or by the time you change then, it's probably MPP3.

*Been using Michelin XM1 for 1 week only

I know it's not fuel-wise, but I always drive with windows slightly down (unless it's really hot day). Seems far more quiet than the stock tyres, or maybe because it's new Smile

Liter / 100km meter reading onboard;
Old tyres ~ 8.7l / 100km
New tyres ~ 7.8l / 100km
Not sure though how this will actually translate to effective FC Rolling Eyes

But I think I'll need another wheels alignment and balancing.

*huhuhuhu MPP3 Laughing ??
