Once you are into 18" and ultra low profile, these tyres are normally in the Ultra High Performance category, and are fast wearing. Tyre of this category are normally very highly priced for 18".

The LS2000 you mentioned at RM1800 seems to be a good price, but they High Performance only.
You can try taking a look at the Toyo C-1S, Hankook V12Evo also....

rdgs,

rdgs,



after some research here n there, i've made my decision on the yoko S drive 225/45/r18....reason is because

-performance proven since is launched quite sometimes,
-thread wear 300....hahahahah...

the price i got is 550 per piece...any bro here can get better price with this size?

For 225/45/R18 should be quite cheap.... S-Drives are quite fast wearing as they are UHP tyres.....

ZE-912 are mid level HP tyres. Should be much cheaper, but performance is further off from UHP S-Drives.
If into ZE-912, you might as well take a look at Hankook V12 Evo....
Maybe can check whether the New Toyo C-1S has your size also ...

Except for the LS2000, all should be above his budget of RM500......
