Which one is cheaper? Usually GT Radial is good value for money.

Hankook is slightly cheaper RM20 less.. :biggrin:
Then V2 wins bro.
Plus its cheaper, win win lol
Spec wise actually they're in similar UHP category with traction rating both AA.
HPX though has treadwear rating 340 while V2 has 500. Based on this, it seems the V2 uses harder compound and should last longer, but the HPX is softer tire which normally should translate to better grip.

Noted bro! Thanks for the suggestion!! :top:
How much anyway? If u want cheaper and cheerful, Achilles ATR Sport is my top favourite.
RM200-210 for 16 inch. 15 inch depends on sizes are RM140-180.

Theoretically yes. But V2 reviews better than HPX wey.
ATR Sport is 400.

16" just go for ATR Sports. Less rubber I think u might be able to get RM195 a piece or maybe just RM200 a piece.

Since 205/55/16 is RM205 while 205/50/16 is RM200

Dunno why but going from the data from tirerack.com, Hankook V2 Concept weighs less than other tires. This will help lessen unsprung weight.

Have you check whether HPX have in your size, because many sizes were switched to BAX2, means no more HPX.

V2 Concept 2 is HP all seasons, if V12Evo2 which is summer tyres will be better performance....

I'm driving honda eg. Yup, already upsize..
Better just use 195/50 tires, still got many choices and slightly thicker so a bit more comfortable than 205/45.
Honda Eg best to use just 15 inch rims actually with 205/50 or 195/55 tires.
