Default Tyres for Myvi - Please recommend

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!

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.

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

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......

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.
