    Most passenger cars tyres are rated traction A.
    Temperature B have a few like Duraplus, GT3, some 4x4 tyres. More towards Non performance tyres.

    Last Oct i brought C-Drive at price about RM340 at Sunway.

    I knew recently tyre price up, but the different was too much.

    Have not ask about the price for 215/50/R17, but price difference between C-Drive 2 and PS3 for 205/55/R16 is RM330 against RM460....:driver:

    Even though single A traction rated, wet traction may not be good, but some mention the aquaplaning resistant is not bad. Have not use before, therefore cannot comment too much....:biggrin:

    The Maxxis Victra MA-Z1 is good in the wet. Dry not very good. Bumpy and Noisy also.

    New Maxxis i-Pro should be better....
    MA i-Pro Victra i-Pro
