    My bro needs all 4 tyres replaced for his Myvi.

    Need a good recommendation for tyres that has good grip in wet conditions, soft, least road noise. Tahan long or not doesn't matter, as safety is more important.

    Also, recommend what is the cheapest/best value for money options, and where can I get the cheapest tyres installed at?

    Thanks bros and sis.

    Hi, I would like to recommend you michelin XM2 which it gives you quiet ride, good in both dry and wet, and it can last quite long (claimed by michelin). Besides, it's a soft compound tyre. But, it's abit pricey compare to other brands such as yokohama A-drive and C-drive.

    Not too sure, depending on the size, probably in the region of RM200 each or below...

    Assuming your bro is using stock tyres (185/65/14) then you don't really have much choice :

    - Continental Contact 1
    - Goodyear Duraplus
    - *I think* Michelin XM2
    - Some old stock Yokohama Neova AD07 (super duper grip but goddam noisy la)

    With the Continental being the lowest ranked tyre. Prices range between RM160 to RM240 a piece depending on where you buy from. Since you're changing all 4 tyres then it'll be worth the drive to Klang or Rawang to get these tyres since they are roughly RM20 to RM40 a piece cheaper than KL prices. That's a savings of RM80 to RM160 if you change all 4. If it's just 2 pieces then anywhere in KL is fine la. The smaller savings isn't worth the toll and petrol to go to Klang (unless you're going there for bakkutteh.. )

    If it's 15" then your choices go up significantly

    - Michelin Pilot Sport 3
    - Hankook V12
    - Kumho dunno what model
    - Goodyear Eagle F1 (best in class water grip tyre)
    - Yokohama C-drive2
    - Yokohama S-drive

    All of these tyres price between RM220 to RM280 with the cheapest being Hankook which you can get from Sunway. I recently got my C-drive for RM240 a piece in Sungai Long, I heard it's about RM220 or RM230 in Klang.

    If you really want to know more about where to go and whats good, try pm-ing vr2turbo. We all call him the tayarking for good reason! :biggrin:

    Can consider Michelin XM2 for that size. Dry and Wet also both consider good. But there are limits to it of course. Is a Green Concept
    tyre, so has longer lifespan and I find it comfortable.

    Bro try 2 use "good year", i feel it has good grip in rain, and the important thing check alignment and Tyre balancing every 6months.

    ---------- Post added at 02:20 PM ---------- 6 hour anti-bump limit - Previous post was at 02:19 PM ----------

    and if u r a frequent driver then u need to check every 3months.....

    Wah! bro. Izso put me on the table also....ha! ha!:biggrin:

    I thought all Myvi stock tyre size is 175/65R14?
    If 175/65R14, recommend change to 185/60R14. This tyre size less choices for good grip tyres like those in performance category. The closest is comfort performance Yokohama C-Drive 2
    Next is Michelin XM2 and Toyo Teo plus.
    Was at tyre shop last Saturday, happen to see XM2 and then ask price, is RM190 now on offer.
    For me I still prefer C-Drive 2......:driver:

    175 ah? Erm... I dunno. I think I might have swapped them out with 185 along the way and forgot about it.

    I also thought 185, since my BLM also is 185/60/14, but 185 should be able to fit myvi too.

    Yes 175/65/R14. But but but but...if for normal driving, common Goodyear Duraplus or Conti Contact CC5 are already very good enough. Im currently running on stock rim with conti contact cc5. It performs better than I expected but will be a little bit slippery in rain. But i dont think it matters coz I actually tried it at quite a high speed we wont usually do when taking corners like that in a myvi and also on a quite controlled situation.

    TS, if you want performance or better grip for safety as you mentioned, change the rim to a wider one first lol. If not, the driving style itself determines the safety issue here.....cheers:biggrin:

    The Ziex ZE-912 used to be good and had many good feedback, until they changed the rubber compound formula (I think), because initially they have traction AA rating, but lately only traction A rating, have fast wear and wet grip deteriorated.
    Azenis not in 14" sizes....

    Yes, if convert to 185 can, but 185/60R14 not 65 series. That one diameter is bigger

    ---------- Post added at 05:19 PM ---------- 6 hour anti-bump limit - Previous post was at 05:18 PM ----------

    Still can upgrade to 185/60R14 and have mid level Yokohama C-Drive 2 that is better then entry level traction....:driver:

    You are right!
    Conti Contact CC5 is quite a good tyre!
    Very durable!

    Change tyre size but maintain same rims....
    Meaning if original is 175, and want to use 185 size, the series (aspect ratio) or sidewall height have to use lower to get as close as possible the overall diameter, therefore from 175/65R14 to 185/60R14. If use 185/65R14 the overall diameter is much bigger.
    175/65R14 - 583mm
    185/60R14 - 578mm - smaller by 0.9% (This is closer)
    185/65R14 - 596mm - bigger by 2.2%
