Ok, I went to change Liao at Soh

The boss gave me MIV. he say no Korea one. Dunno he bluff or not. Maybe my size, 205/45/16, doesnt have MIK

anyway, for $95. I can't complain. Tyres DOM 3611, which means 36 weeks 2011 (end of sept). Not bad. Tyres are only 4 month old. Considered v fresh stock

Took the virgin tyres for a spin after changing. Intial feel is steering is light

Then I tested a quick sharp corner. I got a bouncy feel, due to soft sidewall. But I don't mind. It's more comfy than hard sidewall.

Went up to CTE, tested acceleration, not bad. Quite responsive. No problem over take cars. Drove up to 100km/hr.

Noise level is good, but it's normal for virgin Tyres to be quieter. Got to wait until 10k-15k KM

For $95, no complains at all!!!



Good for you bro...............

I think mayb is the size lah..........my 195/55/15 mayb common size...............move faster.........my tyre DOM is 4411................which is very very new............think is new stock......and MIK.........i called a month ago he quoted me MIV..........$10 cheaper.............when i asked for MIV he said new stock came for my size is MIK lor.........

I called up AL..............also same.....my size they also carry newer stock............MIK also.........

for this price cannot complain liao..........

enjoy your new shoes................ laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

Never use it before but heard its quite good. Highest performance street tyre from Dunlop is what the shop told me when I asked them.


Dunlop z1 star spec is the highest range. Nx is sport max tt.

Your driver's door will have the recommended readings, and that should be your baseline rather than following other pple's setting blindly. My car is heavier than yours and I'm using only 240 for the fronts and 230 for the back.

KU31, using it for a year now.. On 205/45/16.. Bang for buck.. Wet grip is very good.. Does not aquaplan comparing against some of the similarly priced tyres.. Threadwear is decent, still have a long way to go even though I've already clocked 30k km..

Sportmaxx and sportmaxx TT are vastly different tyres dont get them mixed up. Ive used both and the sportmaxx TT on my bm lasts forever. my longest lasting tyre yet. Not to mention the dry and wet grip is hilarious. My gf hit a kerb my rim was damaged and the damn tyre is ok due to kevlar in the sidewall. damn impressive. And i got a damn good price from autokinetics.

What is the diff bt KU31 and KH31 from Tyrepac?

Last changed tyres abt 2 yrs ago.
Always thought PH gives the best deal. So looks like SOH give better deal

I have driven abt 20k on 195/55/15 ku31. Think it has gotten noisier, but depends on road condition too, eg AYE towards city, remember after enter from corp road, that part sure noisy.

But between grip and noise, I would take grip anytime, noisy a bit nvm. For the low price and good grip, I am satisfied.

Believe there would always b a tradeoff between grip, quietness and price. Can only choose 2.

Great! I'm on kumho too, but just got them very recently. So far it's still quiet. I'm only worried abt the future.

many say tyre tends to roar with mileage increment. i dont quite agree though there is indeed a slight increase in noise.

i would say its the age of the tyre that plays the part. Use a tyre for more than 2 yrs that has hardened in our climate, definitely its gonna be noisy.

thats why i change tyre every year.....not because its noisy but botak biggrin.gif


worry not, ku31 is not noisy even till EOL, but needs to have a good alignment to ensure even tyre wear. Or else wong wong sound will surface when the outer thread starts feathering.

Noise is fairly ok to me.. Not very loud IMO.. Like many said, for the price u are paying for these tyres, this level of sound + performance is bang for buck.. Even after more den 1 year and 30km clocked, I'm still very confident of driving at speeds of >100km/h on a rainy day.. Tho, I dun usually do it..

Noise can be countered by my music.. Hahahaha.. But seriously it's not very loud.. I'm driving an old Korean tin can with normal sound insulation only..

On certain roads, it's a lil noisy.. Like TPE to the direction of ECP, somewhere between Jln Kayu and Punggol exit.. That stretch is noisy.. But pretty much decent on most roads..
