Now mine current tyre is not working very well in wet (about 40-50k used, continental cc6). I planning to change new tyre after a few month, is there any review of your current tires performanxe please comment below.
My budget around 180-250 per pcs. Any suggestion and review for Yokohama Advan fleva, Michelin ps3, Hankook v12, Hankook v2. Any penang or area tires shop recommended.

From feedback, for wet still PS3 the best, dry then RE-003, Budget then Hankook V12Evo2. Hankook V2 Concept 2 is all seasons category, not summer. Yokohama Fleva not many users.....

How about Kumho ps31 review from you and other tyre
All depends what you want out of the tyres. You are currently on CC6, then PS31 will be much better than those, then V12Evo2, probably Fleva, RE-003 and best is PS3. But then again if for dry RE-003 can say to be better.
So you need to think it out, even my VR was fitted with LandGolden LG27 before for a few months, just drive within it's limit, but was quite surprise that it performed quite well.....lol

If want to save budget, i will go for V12evo2, have budget then ps3. Will not consider re003 because many people review mention that not work well in wet.

As mentioned, what tyres you fit, use to it's own limit. PS3 good in wet then fit, if RE003 not too good in wet then drive slower in rain. There are people who fit extreme tyres and some even semi slick for daily, in wet it is even worse......lol

You are right, need find a suitable for own.
Because last week drive at highway with a slow speed(40-60kmh) due to heavily rain weather and feel very no good with current tyre(maybe already left 50%). Now scare ma then want to get a more better tyre(also want budget2) and find some review here....hehe

I'd recommend just get the Hankook V12E2 because it's best value for money. Performance practically equal to PS3 but price only 70-75% of PS3 (I have used PS3 also). I'm also using this at exact same size for my son's Swift Sport, very happy with them.

How about the new Toyo Proxes TR1? Anyone used it before? Any comments/reviews?
I plan to change my tyres along with rims probably at the end of the year. Start to get tired of washing Fiesta stock rims weekly :banghead:

Woah! that bad ah?
It’s relative. If you never used PS3 before you won’t feel like kuaci.

Just like if you never see D cup before, and only seen A cup and B cup, you feel B cup very big. You see D cup already you feel B cup is normal.

But yours both quite high end, between PS3 and RE003. I experience before GY Asy to Blue Streak Stiletto. That one from UHP to almost bottom category...lol. Even in dry can go sideways....:smokin:

Brake lock up? No ABS? RE003 tread is nice, just wet lacking.

I’m a lazy driver, same corner I drive 80km/h in dry, I try to drive the same speed in wet. Cause lazy to brake ma. Unless got puddle la. So my tyre gotta be consistent in wet and dry.

Cannot be helped, testing the tyres. Use for short duration only, later I gave them to a friend who bought a used set of rims but needed tyres. Told him he can have it but be careful with them. He manage to use until botak......lol

I try to use the best wet tyres too, as I love driving fast in the wet.....:driver:

I've used the ABS several times, I can confirm it works and its useful in a front wheel drive car.

Rear wheel drive i don't dare to try.
