Agreed with VR. Depends on what kind of usage that you are looking for.
Lets say you are those RWD mad tire slaying, burnouts, smoking those tires. Then you can get a used tires. :rofl:

Depend on your requirement
1. Comfort
2. Quiet ride
3. Performance in dry / wet
4. Ultra performance

Most of the time one tyre only have 2 criteria, if u need more, u have to pay more.
What U pay is what u get.

A performance car must work with a good performance tyre to have the optimum result. You can start with Michelin. They have their own research and development teams which work on constantly to innovate and design tyre to ensure that the tyre delivers the maximun performance of a vehicle. I do recommend Pilot Sport 3, which is design for driving pleasure and exceptional grip. If you need dry and wet performance, Ps3 is good in that too.

Price of Michelin is really sky high compare with many others that offers the same performance at lower price.

15" still not too bad, 17" seems they drop price too, but bigger then that then expensive....:biggrin:
Ya especially 18"...I see the price I really... :stoned:

These buggers still advertising.

My friend's 19 using KU39 RM750 I can't remember. Pretty good ah.
Some are advertising but i guess still many are tied to well-known brands or more confident with well-known brands. Especially those that just get tyres for daily use and not for any performance.

I was once like that too until I know vr2turbo Sifu :rofl:

A fan of michelin due to it being popular and reputable brand. But I have to say the PP2 is real good :rofl: Not much tire wear after Ulu Yam :biggrin:

Haha, don't know why so well known still need this type of advertising?

KU39 is the LE Sports. Smallest size is 205/45R16 then jump to 17" already. For bigger cars, that is why even website put in Prestige car side....:biggrin:

You know me loh! Most ask me to recommend if possible cheap and good, or value for money. Michelin not say not good, they are good, and some very good even, but those usually cost a lot, so how to recommend as value for money.
Those days already hear about PS2 and wanted to try, but for my size of 215/45R17 was quoted RM750, where my Yoko S-Drive, Toyo T1-R, GY F1 GS-D3 etc., all cost around RM380 only, therefore I can actually buy two tyres for the PS2 price....:smokin:
Even though these tyres may not be equal to PS2 performance but say at 90% and at half the price which will you buy?
Then say XM2 and Hankook V12Evo in 15", Hankook is still cheaper and better performing. Of course if performance then choose Hankook, but if want durability then should choose XM2, right? But even I know now you are quite fed up with them. You had them on the BLM which was sold and another which you have complain of squealing....:thefinger:

Actually I have another friend also pro Michelin those days, after he know me and tried other tyres, he mentioned one day to me, if he did not know me he will still be using Michelin....:hmmmm:

I can say that too. "If I do not know u, I would still be stuck with Michelin" :rofl: and I won't be screeching those tyres if I did not join those guys for Touge TT but glad I did as I get to know how much can my tyres take and understand the car and tyre better on how much punishment it can take.

I would give thumbs up to PP2 but not to say very grippy if compare to many performance tyres, and still did manage to get it screech a little but it was a lot better than the XM2 which is quite unfair to compare it with PP2 though :rofl:

Will try ATR Sports 2 next on Jetta. I think Kelisa I would remain the same. Since not much choice of performance tyres that is quite an all rounder for this size.

I used to be stuck to Falken those days on the VR when using 16" because Hup Shun boss manage to get very cheap for me. Then when switch to 17" I migrated from brand to brand, moving from Yoko, Falken, GY, Toyo, Stiletto, to GT Radial and so on testing them out....:biggrin:

last time falken 912 oso AA traction until the move production to indon.
even bridgestone my-02 only B rating.so much for 'sporty' style written on its sidewall.
super lousy,easily loses grip.even my ecopia arent like that.

sti remember long time ago at a traffic light in batu berendam.a nissan 350 stop beside me and was admiring his huge 20 something rim with super thin tyre.me and my bro was admiring it until we burst out loughing when our eyes sees the word 'Nankang' on the tyre's side wall.

a friend of mine was using the T1R when he urgently need to replace 2 tyre due to critical wear and damage.since no budget he opt for deestone.dunno which model.AA traction rating.was loughing with him as we recall our dream of owning a tyre shop where we only sell hih end brand...hahahah

Falken ZE-912 is Ziex range, the ones I used was the Azenis range under UHP category. Yup, the 912 some how drop to A rating later on...:hmmmm:
The MY-02 is Sports Touring tyre, meaning is Touring but look Sporty, not sure what BS trying to do. No AQ Donut and no whatever top their range tyres have....:stupid:

Deestone from Thailand, wait until you see Linglong, Sailun, HiFly, Zeta, Wanli then you will be ROFL....:rofl::rofl:

Good tires is not all about grip only but also about how predictable they are when loosing grip. I'd rather use less grippy tires but will loose grip more progressively and easy to catch rather than a higher grip one but then can snap on the limit and caught you by surprise.

Some people is all about showing off only! I've seen plenty of those, like last time I saw a Vellfire using 19' bling rims but with unknown tires (probably one of those lousy cheapo ones from China)! :stupid:
Me, I'd rather use 16-17' rims only but try to buy the best tire I can. In fact my tires cost me more than my used, old style rims (even though they're forged JDM rims).

True on that, so best get a grippy tyre that will also loose grip more progressively and easy to catch then :biggrin: I tried XM2, is predictable but cant get the grip that I expected it to take.

Yup, seen many, pay for real nice rims, but use cheap or even second hand tyres......:banghead:
