    Any particular reason why you don't like CSC5 much? I also just finished using that tires and pretty happy with them actually. You're sure it's the European made CSC5 right and not the Malaysian MC5?

    csc 5 is a very noisy tyre! Don't really feel the grip after 25k mileage! I said it was overatted because of the high price against its performance! Mine came factory fitted from MBM! So I think it's the Euro tyre gua!I just checked my spare tyre, it's written Continetal CSC 5 ler! :biggrin:

    Noisy I agree but no grip after 25k mileage?? Hmm I use mine until over 40k km and still had good grip in the dry (of course don't talk about in the wet coz threads were almost bald so I had a few hair raising moments!). Expensive mostly, but I got mine for only rm500/pc all inclusive back then in 2015 for 225/50/17 so it's NOT expensive. :biggrin: Is your car an E200 or C200?

    Nowadays tyres are getting better with new compound and technology. For me I have used the Indonesian GT Radial before, and is much cheaper than my previous GY Asy2. I would rate GT at 80% of the Asy2, however the rubber compound of the GT harden faster. By 3 years can feel the grip rate lessen, whereas the GY probably 4 years. By the 4th year fine cracks can be seem on the GT tyre thread whereas the GY lasted up to 5th year before crack lines shows. So if using the tyres up fast should not have this problem.....lol

    So far you have been lucky with the contis. At least 4 members I know from the PUG308T club on CSC3 have bulging tyres. My lady friend sister also had 1 bulge and 1 burst, and as you know my ex colleague's accord on CSC5 and had crack sidewall......lol

    True ler bro.... After 25k, like not very sticky Liao ! I don't mind the tyre la but I mind about the high price! Lol! Mine is the C250! I don't have the privilege to rotate my tyres thus I need to choose the 'value for money' type lor! Just like h/p la......that fruit brand also overrated! My xiao mi can perform much better! I used three versions of the fruit brand before I decided to give this China phone a try! Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!

    Hehehe, don't know bro, they were as durable as any when I used them, not even any minor cracks yet leh! Also very minor chipping, contrary to my previous F1D5 which had chipping all over the place.

    Ic, well back then I actually also did not consider the CSC5 coz I thought very expensive until that 1 shop offered me for just rm500/pc (which was cheaper than PS3 or even RE003 that time) then I was surprised and did not think twice to try them and did not regret at all coz they served me well. I actually loved them when they're almost bald coz the dry grip was even more and my steering was just a tad heavier, just the aquaplaning resistance was already bad of course. I also cannot rotate front/back coz I was using staggered sizes too.

    Anyway just see later with your ATR, how they are when reaching over 25k km, I suspect they would be much worse. I've seen samples of ATR 1 & 2 having their tread compound like separating showing different layering instead of wearing off uniformly as normal tires.

    So you tried because cheap offer. Well, same here, have not tried Michelin, Pirelli and Contis before, due to price. Well, Michelin actually tried many many years ago, don't know if you know the model called "Fizzarrow"...hahaha Long time ago, did not fare well, thereafter was looking at PS2 but the price was double of any top tyres of GY, Yokohama, so forgo that also.....lol

    No never heard of that before! I have used most of the top branded tires now (Michelin Pilots, Goodyear F1s, Continental CSC, the old BS Potenzas & Dunlop Dignos) except Pirelli and Yokohama. Curious to try P Zero and Hankooks later.

    Ya, for the price I got, it was damn worth it! Probably now cannot get anymore deals like that. Anyhow I got the F1A2 now and so far pretty happy with them but haven't really tried touge with them yet. In the rain they are pretty good though.

    Btw on a C250, aren't your tire sizes a bit too small in diameter if just using 225/45/17 + 245/40/17? This is the new C class or the older ones?

    This is for my w204. The w205 tyres are still in shape!I max max only do about 15 k mileage only in a year! The 205 is 18'! Also 225 and 245! My wife is driving the 204 now! Maybe next year should change the 205 's tyre Liao! If Atr2 is living up to its hype, maybe getting the same tyre again! Lol!

    You have expensive cars, should be able to afford much better tires la. I have much cheaper cars yet I use much better tires than yours. Remember, tires is only thing that connects to the road and your traction is only up to the grip limit of the tires, so nice cars with good safety system or whatever but with shit tires will still be bad.
