Nice, unfortunately they didn't include the new Hankook S1 Evo 3.

Goodyear SS looks very promising indeed for rwd cars and heavy wet like our rainy season. Interested to try if available for my sizes.

Still interested also to try the FK510 especially since he said it's more comfortable and more forgiving/easier to control at the limits, which is good for ordinary novice drivers like me.

PS4S and CSC6 not really surprised, premium tires at premium prices but a bit disappointed that they're a bit far behind in the wet and even beaten by mid tier brands! I'd personally rather take PS4 and ECS coz cheaper and available in smaller sizes than 19' (and possibly might be better or easier in the wet too).

As for Toyo, Kumho, and Accelera or other low end tires in general, this just reinforces what I have believed all along that they're crap!

Yup, in the other test video, even though PS4S had better time then PS4 in the wet, he did mentioned PS4 was easier to drive in than PS4S where you need to be more alert......lol

This time PS4 is much closer to PS4S than PS3 to PSS last time.

FK510 for the win. Champion of the cheapos. 50% cheaper than PS4 for my size, no need to think.

Now just see the wear rate.

PS4S slightly better than PSS, but PS4 much better than PS3, so PS4 is very close to PS4S already.
Just like Goodyear Asy to Asy2, the jump was very great, I could feel the difference. Then to Asy3 the improvement is very little only, hope to test Asy 5.......lol

Top range usually need to go to those bigger shops, selling large rims. Smaller shops cannot stock so much tyres, maybe can pre order only
