Michelin Ps3 and continental csc5 which 1 is better?
However even though CSC5 have better performance and reviews have heard quite a lot of complains on tyre bulge for Conti CSC3 and one on CSC5 for crack sidewall.

What is your tyre size?

CSC5P starts in 18", if not mistaken. CSC5 have 17". For you probably should try PSS instead.....:driver:

CSC5 isn't locally made. Got a friend working in Continental. It's the highest end model for Conti so to maintain similar QC and performance, it's only made in the same place - I can't recall where though. I think he said Germany but I honestly doubt that.

I only know their cc5 and MC5 is locally made. My friend CSC5 that had sidewall crack was made overseas but also cannot recall where....:hmmmm:

P Zero should be priced with top Conti model like CSC5. Have not checked their prices for a long time.
Well, better grip for safety too......:driver:

Depends on your car. If you have enough power it won't affect FC much. In the past I used 4 pieces AD07 on my stock Myvi 1.3. The wife loved the grip but it suffered tremendous power loss which resulted in more revs to get the car moving, meaning higher FC figures. Suffered bad. Something like 30km to 50km less than what I normally get.

But the grip was phenomenal!

this is something i observed.. i used almost botak NCT5 as a loaner while rim went in for repair.. FC was tremendously good but OMG stopping distance in wet. The road was just normal wet and it was skidding with light braking at low speeds.

ZTH forum already got topic on it.....:driver:

---------- Post added at 08:53 AM ---------- 6 hour anti-bump limit - Previous post was at 08:52 AM ----------

Based on reviews I read, T1S is decent but T1R is not good.
AD08R is extreme class, cannot compare with T1 or even PS3.
Yup, T1-R did not work for my VR. Aquaplaning resistance is good, but not the grip....:rolleyes:

NCT5 problem is the sipes. New time with plenty of sipes they work pretty well. 20% worn and the sipes starts to disappear and at 40% almost gone.

Here are the visuals.....:rolleyes:

Ok I mean the grooves are very shallow.
Yup, the smaller side cut grooves is at an angle. The more it wear down the shorter the groove become. After about 50% most of the pattern are like straight line only.....:rolleyes:

I went to cuci mata at Brothers today.They are selling rims and tires now.

I bet most of knows PS3 reputation already.
So,when i saw 195/55/15 ps3 being sold at RM240 a piece i said 'not bad pricing in Melaka'.That is until i saw the Michelin XM2 beside it in the same size being priced at RM235.

I wonder,is it Brothers asking too much or Michelin squeezing us?

What makes it even more baffling is when i look down and saw the BS EP200 of the same size being priced at RM185 a piece.

Imho,the xm2 and ep200 have simar performance.And yes,i am using both model.

XM2 have always been priced closed to PS3, except one time when PS3 went up in price. Now it is back down and at par with XM2 again.

But did I say it is a bad thing? :biggrin:
All tyres after 50% wear the pattern will differ slightly from original. Whether the sipes disappear, the blocks joins up, or pattern changes pattern slightly, etc. etc....
For entry level they use harder rubber compound, so to soften the compound they cut sipes into them, that is why when the sipes disappear the tyre performance drops.
UHP have soft compound and usually no sipes or very little, that is why their handling performance usually do not drop except for in the wet after 50% and that is because the grooves becomes shallow and cannot channel water away when like new. However dry performance usually will still be there.
