Dear all,

My tires are worn out and due to change.. just to find out more on what size and brand are you guys using and feed back on performance :cowboy:

I am currently using Yokohama S-Drive 215/40/17 which the previous owner fitted.

size is 205/55R16 got it at $144 per piece.
perhelps for your size you're looking at could fall at just under $200 per piece.

theres only 1 place you can get hankook tyres at. thats SHH tyres. i went to the one at woodlands. behind the new SSDC driving centre

Do know what your impressions are when you gotten them! So far grip is good from the V12. My previous tyres were continental sport contacts

PS3 sidewall stiff enough for predictable handling anot? Compared to RE001 and Toyo Proxes T1R?

Yes V12 Evo... ITS Good...........Trust me guys... driven for more then 200km liao... and can feel the grip is good. Traction AA Temperate A ZR rating UHP tire i think the price is value for money. today raining cruising now the bend at KJE 100~110 km/h feels the grip is good in wet weather too.
