    yeah.. lets see... each tyre model, how long generally before the maker introduce a new model? like XM1 going into XM2... is it around 7 years? or less? maybe no definitive answer for that

    Yup, for extreme tyres, they should have plenty of choices, and nearer to your place also......

    Duraplus is in front and the City tech is in rear.

    So far for my tyres, only the good year had shown to lose grip during rain while for viking, haven't experience such a thing before.

    Because our normal car which is hardly driven or only used for short distance commute is using cheap2 tire which had treadwear rating of above 320?

    Our other car is different.

    I don't drive alot like maybe less than 10k a year. That is probably why my tyres last so long.

    yesterday just come back from raya holiday, had chance to really experience s1n2 tyre around 1500km from jb to perak. so far im really satisfied with that tyre, i felt my car is way more comfortable than before. plus my car is rear wheel drive, taking corners is never like i experience before.. max speed driven now is 180kmh and im confident with it.

    You are quite right ! None of my tyres can last to 2 years !

    There was once i bought a set of used Nexen 8000, has about 70% thread left, a return trip to Penang, i've managed to scrub the tyre down to almost 40% left. I wasn't driving very aggressive too. Probably this used tyre already has some thread problem so that's why it was gotten rid of.

    Its amazing that i am still able to drive relatively quite stable on this thing.

    Thanks,
    Ken
