really bang for buck, achilles 123 & nankang ns2r. for 15inch, please be aware of 2 models of achilles 123 in the market. there's 123 & 123S. 123S is the control tyre for SNF race. grips like shit, tyre wears really fast. look for 123 instead of 123S. hankook rs3 is very very good but not exactly cheap.

Federal 595 Evo is normal road tyre HP range. About RM240 for 195/50/15

Federal 595 RSR is the UHP range, some claim semi-slick. RM365 a piece.

i saw the shootout result that hankook rs3 made a good rank with the car itself,
so mind sharing the grip, wear and price for 15?

whoa really dont know what to say, for the size, 195/50 is out of the league where i think 205/50 and 195/55 still can be consider to use on road since 195/50 is too small for myvi wheel arch.

Why nankang ns2r get the extreme level since the outcome from the user said that its not good at all from grip in wet nor dry. oso being the same level with ad08 seems to be exaggerating for that tyre.

now for the price federal vs toyo vs yoko vs hankook for semi slick n grip, which one the best bos?

Are you sure that review is for the NS2R or is it NS2? NS2R got decent rating as one of the cheapest extreme level tires around.

I dont think wet grip is as bad gua. :bawling:
Use until that time then can compare, but ATR may be better as got no sipes and bigger grooves. Compound traction AA, hope this is true rating then should be good....:driver:

What I posted in not my grouping. It is category by the tyre brand manufacturers on what model for what use. Whether which performs better depends....

For daily use get PS3 performance and get some negative camber setup -1.3 to -1.6 if you want to attack corner. if for time attack in track many real semi slick can go if budget limited go toyo R888.
