As above...

1. Bridgestone RE001
2. DZ101
3. Michelin PS3

For those who have used at least 2 of these, which ones have the:

1- Stiffest sidewall
2- BEST wet weather grip
3- POSITIVE steering feedback in all conditions

I don't care about comfort levels, etc etc, only these three things..

I've used 3 sets of RE001s for nearly 4 years over 2 different cars (a Getz and then my current Lancer Ralliart as my daily driver), so kinda lost touch with the rest of the tyre range

My last set of RE001s lasted exactly a year (time to change this week) when I clocked about 55,000km so that gives you an idea of the sort of driver I am.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

thanks :)

i used them all on my prev LGT.
my fav is RE001 bcos wet / dry grip is there w decent level road noise. And price is value for $
if $ is no object, i would had gone for RE11 but for my purposes, thats an overkill

DZ101 is extremely good in dry but slightly less confidence in wet esp in NSHW
And it hardens very fast. 25K harden liao. And the road noise is driving me nuts.

i currently use PS3 on my E39. it is decent.
but performance wise i cant tell very much, partly also bcos my 2L IL6 is no prancing horse... doesnt even come close

I am on DZ101, just got it a month back but i not hardcore driver.

The wet is ok, so far so good, can cut water well, dry is ok, not too noisy. Rim protector is really THICK, can really protect your rims compared to RE001.

My previous car was on RE001 and with a Advan RZ tires and i scrap my rims so many times and repair it :( so heart pain. I wish i had DZ101 on the RZ so i dun have to spend so much repairing rims :(

hahaha. ya the RE001s only get noisy at the 50,000km mark..and even then it's not THAT bad lah..

bro Comnao..your E39 although not a performance car by any means should be a good gague of the PS3's capabilities because the BMW is heavier than the LGT and wet/cornering speeds don't really require much horsepower lah :)

Guess i'll be deciding between the PS3 and sticking to the RE001 for now..lotsa good reviews in the comfort/wet department..question is..how's the sidewall/steering feedback combo..haha

t1r wet performance is certainly good, but its sidewall is soft compare to b/s re001. the potenza tyre is famous for stiff sidewall.

My advice is if you are scared of noise, Stick to either PS3 or RE001.
Both also able to last you for quite some time.

depending on size, u might want to check out newer model of toyo , proxes c1s and toyo drb, noisewise should be way better then t1r, but performance wise i cannot say .

Used to use RE001 , currently using T1R, the T1R grip id definately better than RE001, but the side walls are quite soft, thats the bad point. T1Rs are very sticky, can see the difference by the amount of debris being stuck on the tyre after a trip on the highway.. Think my T1R will not last till 40k.

are u on original sportrims? or after market rims?

on my odc currently i was using the dunlops. reasonably decent tires both in rain and dry.

it feels a little more noisier compared to the LS2000s that i was on previously.
