Adrenalin has alwayz been among the best choices in the market...

By right RE-002 should be better, and as bro. soni mentioned I did hear from a few that wet handling is not too good, but then again many have asked what car, what driving speed, how much thread pattern balance and how to find out how heavy the rain was??

RE-001 sidewall soft? I think PS3 even softer. RE-001 Adrenalin was made for dry handling with traction A rating, so I don't think the sidewall is that soft. Of course if you compare to extreme tyres for track then will be considered soft. But then these are suppose to be road tyres....

Hi guys i would to know you guys experience abt Bridgestone Potenza RE001 tyre's...is this good performance wise wet and dry? would love your feedbacks...thanks zth :adore:
Wet and dry, then better take PS3, but if you can use tyre size of 215/45R17 (1.8% diameter smaller) or 225/45R17 (almost same diameter with 205/50R17) then can use GY Asy 2, because they come in at 45 series only...

thanks alot for the feedback guys,really appreciate it...i just had a 2nd tought of switching to 17s instead i'll be settling down for 16s for my satria with yoko a-drive 205/45's...:biggrin:
Bro., if you are changing from 205/45R16, you cannot use 205/50R17. You added one inch up on the rims and you add another 5% up on the series making the tyres too big for use on the Satria. You size should be 205/40R17.
Since you have given up on 17", and stay back on 205/45R16, you can opt for Hankook V12Evo also.
Yoko A-Drive R1 is economy performer only.....

If you add height to your car by way of thicker absorber rubber bushing etc., may make your car unstable. Tilting the tyres by way of negative camber may wear your tyres faster also.
Your 205/45R16 is not original size? Best is to convert from original size to correct size tyres, use the correct offset rims and then you will not have this problem. Altering too much on the suspension (especially increasing height) and camber tilt is not the right way.

Bro., I can't tell without seeing the car. But with 38 it is a little out for Proton make. 40 or 42 will make in come in a little but 38 looks better, only problem is the fender scrubbing.
How much is the tyres scrubbing the wheel arch fender. Since already have the rims, how about rolling the fenders instead.
Well, you cannot tilt the wheels without disturbing the camber setting, because that is what camber setting is about.
