    Car is a merc 1995 s320. Sadly michelin ps3 has no size for this tyre. I'm looking for a tyre comparable to ps3 with this size. Any other recommendations and any good tyre shops in Ipoh area?

    I don't think there is any UHP tire with such thickness. That's like SUV tire size already. Most likely you just have to settle with mid range performance/comfort touring tires like Michelin Primacy 3ST or Bridgestone Turanza.

    Yup, as bro. 6UE5t mentioned there are no UHP tyres for 60 series format, or probably not in Bolihland. I am actually using this size in my Chery SUV. On my first tyre change was also thinking of upgrading to 17" but since wife use most of the time and to keep it more comfortable kept back to this size.
    Tyres available are Michelin P3ST, Continental CC5, Goodyear GR-100, Yokohama db V551, Goodyear Efficient Grip SUV and Yokohama Geolander SUV.
    As you can see most in mid category for comfort since your ride is the older Mercedes. Other than these then have to look at SUV tyres already but those will be noisy and uncomfortable. I am on the Yokohama Geolandar SUV now.....
