    A few months i guess. I was using 2 achilles tyres at the front and i cant
    remember what i was using at the back. Now using falken 522, and so far satisfied.

    522 for me its crap for some spiritual driving..only suitable for normal drive..experienced once skidded with this tyre while driving 70-80kmh on wet surface.that time left 70% thread. its on par with synergy M5.
    since ur budget around rm500 per piece, i would suggest u to go for potenza RE001/RE002 or Toyo T1R..both are great for me. or atleast Hankook V12 evo..

    Yeah thats what i heard, 522 only for normal drive. My problem is that i always
    drive aggressively. Maybe im satisfied for now, bcs its still brand new. Later i will
    regret it. Yess, will be ordering Toyo T1R next week. Its good on wet and corners right?

    Most tyres can perform in the dry, unless you push them hard in corners.
    In the wet, you will be able to differentiate the good performing tyres from the not good ones.
    As far as I know ZE-522 is not good in the wet. The Blue Streak tyres that I had earlier was also not good in the wet, but in the dry was acceptable.

    get the new Goodyear Asymmetric 2 then..i think it's slightly over rm500 but it's worth the money, heaps of good reviews on this tyre..dry n wet also very good according to the review..

    Oh i forgot about the goodyear asymmetric 2. Heard its really good in braking both wet
    and dry. But what about Pirelli P Zero? Anyone used this? Never heard of it before.

    I've ZE-522 on four of my tyres.. Its essentially not gripping at all in wet, I've to stop way before the traffic light in preparation of any unforeseen hydroplaning action.. And yes, I am not exaggerating on it..

    I dun understand how manufacturers can come out with these tyres.:confused:

    Yep...I had the same experience with Bridgestone last time.
    In the rain, it was hopeless.

    PS3 I think now cross over to RM500 region already, that is why the Asy 2 is worth it.
    PS3 also made in TomYam land

    Gents.. I reckon even the most expensive tyres will not able to handle wet cond.
    Normal(street) road cond is not like track road cond..
