    Any recommended tyre shop

    Hi guys, Anyone knows or can recommend a tyre shop here in SG that offer good price and service? I planned to do it in JB but when I read in the forum, some of them said that the price not much different or even more expensive compared to SG perhaps due to tax, but alignment is cheaper in JB. Well I am looking for 224/45/17 for my car. Please share if you guys knows any shops. Thanks in advance
  2. Hi one of my car tire cannot be charged, suspect the charging valve is stuck. What should I do? Can the valve be replaced or must I change tire?
  3. Hello all, Just to seek some opinions and advise from MCF members and experience professional. I've just committed to an AD for a new car, and here comes my dilemma... The car comes with a 18' matte/silver colored rims and I do not like the color. I've always been fan of shinny chrome rims as it is easy to clean and wash daily. Is it advisable to purchase a new set of chrome rims (same size 18') and use back the tyres, or it is better to keep the OEM rims and have them chromed so that the performance is not wrongly compromised by the newly purchased chrome rims? If the latter is true, then where in SG can get this service for chroming the rims? TIA

    Tyre Rotation every 10k?

    Hi Guys, got a question and need advice here. lets say car is FWD/RWD, rotate tyre at 10k. does it make sense to rotate next at 30k? since at 10k, lets say front tyre wear 20% and rear 10%, so after rotating and mileage at 20k, should be front and rear balanced, right? i know driving style play a part during the 10-20k, just saying generally.

    Curb Rash on Rim

    may I know where can I go to repair my rim? got some curb rash and wish to know where can I go to have this resolve. Thank You
  11. Recently, was toying with the idea of upsizing wheels to 18s. Saw an advert for some 17" used tyres with reasonable amount of meat left so decided to purchase from a tyre shop that lists heavily in this forum while I take my time to shop for used premium 18s. Less than 300km of usage later, one of the tyres developed a bulge on the sidewall. The hump is no more than 3-5mm tall but after doing some research online, everything points to the tyre having being curbed and damaged. Most online advise was to switch out to prevent a blowout. Went back to this tyre shop to seek assistance but was extremely surprised and puzzled that the boss and worker said it was not an issue and that the tyre is safe for continued use. I asked like 5 times but each time they reassured me it's not a problem. These guys run a tyre shop so they should be experts in this field, yet I keep reading otherwise online. Anyone can clarify? Or have personal experiences? TIA
  12. I made my trip last week to JB to change my set of tyres Michelin 195/65R15 XM2 4pcs Made in Thailand 2016 tyres at RM240 per piece. The tyre performance was really great and I got saving of atleast RM500 as compare to changing to Singapore (Saving from Tyres & Petrol). The cheapest price I could get in Singapore for this particular tyre was S$120/piece, and thus the discount is at least 50% as compared to changing tyres in JB. You guys can check it out this seller at Carousel @ https://carousell.com/p/66822027/. The service was great and I enjoyed a good Bak Kut Teh at Taman Sentosa

    2nd hand tyre vs 1st hand tyre

    Hi guys and gals, Do you all prefer to change to a 2nd hand or insist on 1st hand? Regards, Michael2828
  16. I have been experiencing a loud Wong Wong sound when I'm driving at 60-70. Sound goes away after 70 and will come on at 100-120 and after 120,it will be silent. I don't think it is a bearing issue as my car is not shaking or vibrating. I heard that a bearing sound is more of a grinding sound instead of Wong Wong. I'm riding on michellin ps3 that has done about 30-40k with about 40% threads left. My car will be scrapping in 2017 July so will not want to spend so much on new tires. If I need to change tyres, can you guys advise me a reliable and not too expensive set? Thanks in advance!

    Swapping tyres and Rims

    Hi Bros and sis, I've a tiny question to seek your advice. I'm going to swap tyres and rims with another car user. Any tips on what to look out for ? At the tyre shop, what are some things I need the staff to look out for me or to assist before I purchase the rims and tyres from the other person? Thanks for your help!
  21. Need some advice regarding tires. I have the 2 tire size options, either a 285/25 or 265/30. 285/25 has only a 1% difference to my current wheels overall diameter but due to the low profile, load rating is only 95 (690kg) 265/30 has only a 3% difference to my current wheels overall diameter but due to the higher profile/sidewall, load rating is 97 (730kg) Is 285 too wide for a 9.5J rim? I'm going to fit this on a 2ton MPV so not sure if load rating 95 is going to cut it.
