    Guys wanna ask about RE003 tread, is it asymmetric or symmetric?? The tyre can only rotate front and back or it can rotate left and right??

    Is Asymmetric. Can rotate front and back, left and right also, as long as the pattern not turn inside out......

    not as loud as an extreme summer tires like v720. first 1000km-3000km it's damn quiet. i never whack when it's raining so i can't really comment on that other than the grip is decent enough on a wet highway drive cruising at 110-140kmh.

    No need version 3, their version 2 is good enough to compete with those 3s.

    Depends on what also. To feedback I received, RE-003 stiffer sidewall, Evo2 softer, Dry Re-003, Aquaplaning resistance Evo2, but then results can differ in different cars..... :driver:

    V12E2 is more well rounded like PS3 but much cheaper so best value for money. RE003 not well balanced coz not as good in the wet and tread wear rating quite low. So I'd choose V12E2 anytime any day over RE003, even over PS3 due to the price.

    For your larger sizes is cheaper, not for those 15", I think the prices do not differ much.....

    PS3 for 195/55/15 is around 210-230/pc or at least rm200 at best whileV12E2 is only rm165-170/pc.

    Actually I need to change 2 tyres on my boat. Now running RE003x2, and GY F1D5x2.. the F1D5s are 5 years old..time to go.. but I wanna spend least amount of money possible, V12E2 is RM165 perfect.. if not I may need to look at some performance Kumhos.. PS31 RM145 each...

    Won't even consider RE003 again, since I drive the same in the rain or shine...

    Friends using PS31 say they are okay too, but I think Made in Vietnam. Hankook Made in Korea will be better if at RM165
