I remember you recommended Rovelo too... that is below RM200... I asked Kedai Papan before around RM170
Yours is 15", right? Rovelo extreme is the Road Racer R1. Nowadays many China makes too like Farroad X Arrow....

Haha yeah i know rm200 is kinda low for uhp performance tires.
So far i found 3 tires. I like accelera design with 200 tw, but its hardly any shop selling and the brand is a bit unknown.
Accelera 651
Toyo TR1
Maxxis vitra ipro
among these 3, I would go for Toyo hands down.

Rovelo is good meh? It’s from Vietnam and the company is owned by China‘s Sailun which makes one of the world worst tyres according to most report.

651 is Extreme category and I read in the reviews this tire needs quite a bit of warm up otherwise the grip is rather poor.

TR1 can get for rm200? I saw mostly closer to rm250.

If budget only rm200, I highly recommend to just downsize to 15 instead so you can get proven good ones like PS3.

Accelera is around rm230-250. Still worth it at rm250? Toyo also about the same.
If price same as Toyo, might as well get Toyo, but Toyo should be MY made now. I have tried the older T1R, cannot hold VR power, I doubt the TR1 are any better, but for NA should be okay......

Huh..people intend to replace tires only, ended up changing the wheels too...hihihi
Long run mah, 15" tyres cheap, 16" less choices and expensive especially the performance range tyres...... :driver:
I have one friend, her husband bought the ML350, came with 21" wheels, immediately ask SA to change them to 19"....hahaha

Yeah i thought about that before, but my current r32 nissan calipers only allows me to fit 16" rims.. one day i went shop to shop hoping to find 15" rims that can fit, but all the rims are too small..
Toyo is better than accelera 651 for the same price?

651 is unknown, no one can give any feedback.
Upon checking, the new Goodyear F1 Sport have your size, check out and see what price....

Like semi-slicks/full slicks dy. Weird because normal tyres already have grip & doesn't need warm ups. What gives?
