Odd size which is why so ex. 225/45/17 as low as 120 for Goodyear F1A5. Some PI PS4 should be $145. IF your rims are wide enough maybe try 235/45/17? Should be cheaper.

Michelin PS4 are pricey for a reason.

They are good tyres.

I wouldn't waste my time with

 Yokohama mamas.

Yeah never had good experience with Yoko in e wet. V551, AD07, AD08, aspec DB, A13, all slippery when wet. Mama doesn’t like it wet.

Guessing his PS4 must be agent tire then. $235 is over priced.

Guarantee you will tire of her before she tires of life.

I am also on PS4, as I am running 225 40 18, I feel that PS4 ride is a bit stiff, thought I must say the cornering , wet and dry performance is v good.

If you want smooth and quiet, can give Bridgestone Turanza T005a a try.

My 15" tires normally just cost me $75-85 per tire including installation and balancing.

someone compiled the accidents from the Jln Anak Bukit stretch in May, and someone else commented there was a metal plate on the floor covering the gap, so this could be a last straw on the camel's back. a bend, curve surface,  slanted away from the bend plus a metal plate on the floor, basically it is like an accident trap.
