    paging tyre king @vr2turbo
    How's the GY EGP SUV holding up on your Forester?

    Time for me to get new shoes for my SUV, 225 65 17 and am comparing this to Conti UC6 SUV. Appreciate your feedback as always.

    Thank you Sir! Means it has been used for closed to 25K Kms. Pretty good!
    Was contemplating to get UC6 SUV, until I bumped into this thread. My original Conti Cross Contact LX Sport is very noisy after 20k usage, and it get noisier at 45K kms usage. However the threadware is damn good, with front still having 70% and rear 40%. However beh tahan the noise.

    Some reviews form my forester group using UC6SUV is that the pattern sipes (the pattern lines) disappear quite fast, meaning is quite shallow.
    If want quiet, heard the Michelin P4ST (Primacy 4ST) is good. I am having those in my daughter's Chery SUV. I drove them once is very comfortable but then body roll a lot. Pros and Cons......lol

    You see! It will never go wrong to seek knowledge from "Tyre King" @vr2turbo.
    I searched in mudah and UC6 SUV cheapest is RM345, and now with the shallow sipes, it will not be good.

    I wonder how much was your GY EGP SUV which you got from Weng Tat last time?
    Michelin Primacy 4 ST not sure if it is suitable for SUV?

    No lah, just got info, so share lah.....hhahahha
    I remember The GY was around RM450 each.
    Actually the tyres with SUV wording, I still see they have same load range as the passenger car tyres for the same size. In fact my OE tyre for the forester was Conti MC5 which were passenger car tyres. Only lately they came out wit UC6 and UC6SUV, with slight difference in pattern design. Some forester members have used the previous Primacy 3ST until bald and some are on the Primacy 4ST now. Only thing is the price could be much higher....lol
