    Is that the AD08 copycat thread pattern?

    Paging @cvkit17 for feedback.

    Cuz from what I remember he said the A1 isn't too bad but it's no match for the PS3, Re003, etc.

    Nope it isn't that thread pattern, see the differences between the 2 below (first AD08, second Rovelo). I am fairing against my Volvo with PS4, the 1jz Beemer is as heavy as the Volvo. In rain, the Rovelo is safe and no hydro planning issue when going through puddle of water at about 100 km/h, PS4 needless to say not a problem but Volvo being FWD, the steering will have its own mind haha. Wet braking is excellent on both Rovelo and Michelin PS4 ! When driving aggressively in the beemer, Rovelo can hold the ground well and no tyre screeching with all the hard acceleration (constant redlining the 1jz). I can't seem to throw the car into a powerslide as it just glide through the corners. I did a fast hairpin test at Setia Alam highway to Kapar, there is a hairpin turn back to NKVE, cornering speed is about 65 ++ km/h and exit corner speed close to 100 km/h (GPS speed). Feels stable and no signs of understeer or oversteer.

    I got 2 cars with all around Rovelo now, the Lancer and BMW, Lancer with FWD when going through puddle of water, steering is firm and no hydro planning. Wet braking is excellent too at the front, wet cornering is very satisfying, tail is following nicely with the steering input, i did the test right after i got the car installed with these rubbers so i think will need another 1000 km's before it settles down. One more thing, these tyres are very well balanced and you won't need on wheel balancing, but that depends on what kinda rims you are using. For all my rides, stock rims all the way.

    In conclusion, if you are tight on budget and wanted budget tyres that are safe to use, try this tyres out. Plenty of Mercedes C250 and BMW 328i F30 use this to replace their runflats and all return with good feedbacks.

    Rovelo Racer R1. Cheap and cheerful.
    Performance wise one tack below Fed RSR but well it’s not apple to apple so maybe this is biased.
    Dry run is much better than PS3 and re003. Surprisingly wet run is good too.. my tyres are at 30-40% now and going through water puddle still not a problem at all

    I am using rovelo sport a1 too. Very cheap tires when compared to ps3 and grips pretty well too. I used ps3 before and i think the rovelo might just be a tad lower grip compared to ps3.

    I have both tyres, PS3 and Rovelo A1 on different cars. PS3 is better in wet but not by very big margins. I would say for the price of Rovelo A1, it serves damn well ! Now see how long it can last.

    Sometimes on different cars hard to tell. There were test reviews that I have read before, testing a few tyres model from different manufacturers done on FWD and then RWD. Testers also surprised they react different, so much so, the best tyre for FWD were not the same for RWD.....lol

    BMW E46 1JZ = Full Rovelo 225/45/17 - Verdict, very good grip and tried to spin the rear tyres on straight line acceleration, barely heard screeches before the car took off fast
    Mitsu Lancer GT = Full Rovelo 225/40/18 - Car is SLOW, but improved on braking and cornering speed, highway stability is good but previous Petlas Velox Sport is better
    Volvo S60 T4 = Front PS4 and Rear PS3 - Nothing to complain, wonderful tyres and might continue using premium tyres for this car

    Btw Hin Leong is bad in alignment tuning, if your cars are with tuned suspension you can just buy tyres and go somewhere else to tune the alignment. Heck their on wheel balancing services are also not up to par. At least thats my review.

    Still contemplating whether to change all 4 tyres to Rovelo or just change 2 first to Primacy 4 to be within the budget. 3 of 4 tyres are worn out now

    Now days they just offer free balancing so might as well just buy the tyres and go somewhere else. Shops like Hin Leong, Oscar tyre offered a cheaper price but known for their bad workmanship. Most probably they just want to finish up fast.

    It's not the question of worth it, it's the question of whether its safe for all rounder performance especially wet braking and traction. My review so far it works very well if my Lancer and BMW E46, no visible hydroplanning when driving on highway

    It all boils down to personal preference and what it is you want to use the tyres for. If it's daily grocery getter point-A to point-B type of short-distance driving then the cheaper alternative is the better solution.

    If you want comfort, quietness, relative grip, the primacy is pretty decent.

    If you want relatively cheap good performance tyres, the RE003 or Rovelo sport are pretty ok (based on feedback from others)

    If you want relatively cheap track going tyres go look at Federal RSRR tyres.

    All of these have pros and cons, especially if you're on a budget.


    Personally though - if you have 3 out of 4 tyres worn out - I'd change all 4 and redo alignment.
