Cheap
Reasonable wet grip and dry grip.
Good lifespan if tyre pressure maintained properly.

Reasonable grip means mediocre?

How cheap? For 18"

Please understand good grip = short lifespan
It is a good bang for buck tyre.

Is there a direct correlation between thread wear and grip?

higher wear rate figure=harder compound=cover more distance=less grip.

 

lower wear rate figure=softer compound=lesser distance covered=better grip.

 

this is the easier i can explain.

Compared to my other tyres, it is ok. Less noisy compared to DZ101

Just changed to this set, around $140 SGD per piece after conversion.

 

Was on F1AS2 previously... so would love to see how this tyre performs since it cost almost half of what i had paid for the F1AS2.

 

It only rains 2-3x in a year at where i am, so i hope i am not wrong in choosing this summer tyre.
