my previous Falken (made in Japan) tyre for 185/60/14 cost me RM195/pc liao... now this one new one for 195/55/15 cost RM255 is not expensive.

other brands like Bridgestone, Yokohama, Toyo T1R and Falken Azenis also the same price. I had asked Falken ST-115 for 195/55/15 needs RM265++, Bridgestone Turanza ER30 for 195/55/15 needs RM260, Toyo T1R for 195/55/15 needs RM280+.

it is true that there is a huge gap of 14" and 15" and also different made of tyre. Sime Tyre of 195/55/15 only cost about RM160/pc but the quality is really different lor.

1. i think Accent 15" of RSX version is using 185/55/15 right?

2. i admit RM255/pc is not the cheapest on the ground compare with places like Klang. but bear in mind that klang ppl selling tyre and mix with imitation or "underground" stocks. furthermore PP2 is very new, so if that is expensive is normal isn'it? Wink

More information about PP2 at MotorTrader:



The Pilot Preceda range of tyres from Michelin may not sound new because this range has been around for a while. However, 2006 sees a new generation of the Pilot Preceda which is referred to as ‘PP2’ and this time round, Michelin has put in extra effort to make it better suited for Asian markets. Described as a ‘true sports tyre’, the PP2 range comes with the promise of delivering the smoothest, quietest sports performance in all Asian weather conditions, particularly wet roads.

True Sport Tire (TST) construction is one of the secrets of the PP2 and this enhances steering response and handling. TST construction ensures less centrifugal distortion to distribute stress equally throughout the contact patch...

i forgot now (up to date) price for PP2, but the (new) GYf1 is better, worth for money and higher quality design.

GYf1 my friend shop can give around RM220 for 195/55/15
