You can also go through the other posts and you should see a lot of comments, then see for yourself what is good and comfortable, money for value, etc. etc...

rdgs,


i suggest you try out Yokohama ASPEC dB decibel. Not a very popular tyre in M;sia. 15 inchi shouldn't that difficult to get.
as compare to 14'. I heard quicksave do stock them.

This is a very comfortable tyre to me, not as noise as those high performance tyre. Is the most quite in Yokohama range.

Don't expect this tyre able to give you high performance ie. during the wet. To me it has the grip, coz normally during raining days, I do slow down. Normal driving stopping not an issue for me.

I currently using it on my CT 14'.

The Yoko Aspec Db or ES Db range are also quiet. DB (decibels) as it, already explain itself to be quiet.
Quiet tyres normally have small grooves, therefore the cutting through water puddles are less effective, hence the poorer wet handling. For those who requires these priorities, can go ahead to use, but do slow down in heavy rain.

Dear all Sifu...
I'm newbie here. I'm planning to changed my City stock tyres soon. I'm thinking upgrade it from 185/55/R15 to 195/55R15.
I did read through quit no of the posting in this forum, many forummers are recommend to Falken 912.
I'm prefer comfartable & quit rides. In my mind, i have few options they are: Yokohama A-Drive, Falken 912, Goodyear Excellence and Hankook Evo V12. My budget is within RM180 per pcs. Need some advice from all expert here. Which is more suitable & value for money. I'm from Alor Star. Thank you very much.

The prices quote are mostly for K.L./P.J. market.
For Alor Star you will have to check from your end.
I don't think they have the GY Excellence in your size. The GY Assurance I think have.
At RM180, the Falken ZE-912 falls into this category in P.J. pricing. Hankook V12 slightly higher. A-Drive AA-01 are entry level tyres and should be the cheapest. I would recommend either the ZE-912 or V12 to you.
