MPP = Michelin Pilot Preceda, there are performance oriented tyres.

blueshades, from your meter reading, that's a saving of almost 0.9 litres/100km! Let's do some maths here.

Let's say your monthly mileage is 1500km...

Savings of 0.9 litre/100km, this translates to 13.5 litres per month. And based on current petrol price (the price likely to goes up real soon), this means a saving of 13.5 x RM 1.92/litre = RM 25.92 savings each month. Not bad, just on the savings alone.

Along that, your tyre is better grip, comfort and lower noise level than the stock noisy tyre. This is priceless. Very Happy Very Happy

I also kena racun Twisted Evil by chkwong already, just traded my 1 week old stock GY Ducaro GAs for Michelin XM1s...same size, 185/65/14. Partly also becoz of the recent fuel price hike Brick wall ...hope to get a lil' bit better fuel economy out of my Accent 1.6, not that it's a fuel guzzler, though. Wink

Just FYI, my 1 week old Accent's 1st ever FC report:
9.43L/100km -
Achieved thru religiously following the break-in procedure as specified in the owner's manual; kept speedo at below 90km/h, rev meter at around 2k RPM, occasional revving but never more than 3k RPM, and roughly mixed 50 city/50 highway.

Unless you can find a buyer or immediately return to the tyre shop, stick with it. The more powerful the car, the higher performance range tyre one should get. It 'brings' out the car handling, so to speak.

Car's OEM tyre + rim size is meant for cost effective, not performance usually.

I almost had an accident last nite as I was trying to pass some idiots Evil or Very Mad in a pimped up Kenari who hogged the right lane on the Puchong-Sg Besi highway. When I tried to cut into his lane after passing him, he baru speed up (!!!), forcing me to turn back into the left lane with a BMW just metres ahead. Naturally, I jammed the brakes, and the car almost skidded. Embarassed
