    First off, forgot to ask, what's your car and spec ? Comparing Primacy and Rovelo Sport, i can guarantee Primacy won't have the grip of Rovelo and Rovelo won't have the comfort of Primacy.

    Currently driving my 9 years old FD2. I'm not really into performance but as long as it has good grip, less noise and hopefully can last for 2 years it's already good for me.

    How's Rovelo compared to other budget tyres like Dayton or any other china brand?

    Dayton has reputation of breaking traction in mid corners. Raydenz another Chinese brand tyres made RFTs and they are quite reliable so far. I had seen few BMW F30s and Merc E class uses Rovelo after their RFT ran out.

    Your FD2 is almost the same as my Lancer, so far i am quite happy with its traction on both wet and dry. I had took it for a long drive from KL to Johor and comfort is great, sound is ok lar (Lancer NVH is shit) and grip in both wet and drive is very satisfying.

    Avoid Chinese and most Indon brands like the plague. Jinyu, Accelera, etc. Horrible horrible tyres. I've never used Dayton can't comment. The ones I've tried are their supposed "UHP" models.

    I'm specifically talking about models and brands I've personally tested. Rovelo is Chinese but feedback from people who've tried it is positive so all the feedback is purely based on the people here

    Ok noted, AFAIK Rovelo and Raydenz are great value for money tyres, on the safe side, i will change these tyres after 2 rounds of engine oil change just to be on the safe side, that's 20k. I will report back here on the verdict.

    Anyone heard another brand named AP tyre? Shop just recommended this brand. Claimed better than Rovelo and price also slightly lower

    Those bloody idiots use torque gun to torque the heck out of your nuts. I am not surprised, most of their workers are your typical klang ah beng.

    Even worse ... the last i am there still lots of china bengs, now with bangla that don't even understand your language, you yelled at them they will just act oblivious. That's why i stop going there even though i know their tyres are cheap. I rather pay alittle extra then having them screw up my cars.

    Many never set the max torque of the air gun, either that or they straight tighten at one go, so the force snap the lug .
