Tyres
Hi Guys,

I just wonder about car tyres. When it is time to replace the tyres, is it really necessary to spent a lot of money on expensive brands. Can you guys suggest some brands (budget around RM500 each)that have road handling ability, durable, comfortable ride,and all other plus points.

Re: Tyres
or you can even try Continental..

Try call this number..

Tire Shop - Chin Heng Tayar/Chin Heng Sdn Bhd

The shop is located at the junction of Batu Belah/Kapar (Corner Shop) Chin Heng Tayar/Chin Heng Sdn Bhd. Look for Chong Eu (0123918633), if he's not around he can direct you to his guys over there.

Additional attraction, he got some used MB wheels (original MB/AMG) there as well brand new (including replicas). Quite a wide variety of continental wheels.

This shop was recommended by Bro Okido when we were trying to help Bro Golfers for his W140 tires. I took his advice and go to this shop personally to check it out. There were alot of tires shop in the vicinity. Met Chong EU mentioned Okido's name. Very helpful and very happy with that trip. Original plan was to change my W201 tyres to Bridgestone... end up with continental tyres. The price in his shop is very competitive.

The shop is pretty busy with lots of customers but the staffs are friendly. There is this chinese guy who is from Sarawak. I couldn't believe when Chong (he prefer to be called EU) told me that they are packing 5 continental tyres for him to bring it back to Sarawak....unbelievable...

Met also another Malay customer from KL. He has been a patron to this shop for the last 10 years....this says alot about the shop...

FYI, my normal tyres shop is Good Year Shah Alam. I can tell you one thing baha, from that day, I have decided to change all my tyres at EU shop.

Re: Tyres
Tyres - what suits one car may not suit others. Tried most tyre brands - all are good when new but gets noisy, uncomfortable, uneven wearing, less grippy etc as they past mid life. Speed/weight/pressure limits declared by reputable brands are more trust worthy.

For Mercs W210/W211 one must ensure the Weight Index is >94, otherwise it'll perish quickly, and a "reasonable" speed rating like "V" (240kph) or even "W" (270kph). "Y" is an over kill.

Of all brands tried, I find Yokohama C-Drive almost tailor made for a number of Mercedes models. Its carcass is pliable but tough. Thread & shoulder compound are grippy yet wear resisting (super bikers know what I mean). Thus making the tyre comfortable, silent and grippy. Most importantly C-Drive remains so even after used to <10% life. Useful life is about 50-65K km in M'sian context.

A C-Drive of 225/55 R16 with load index of "99" and speed rating of "W" costs between RM360 - RM400.

Nevertheless, tepuk dada tanya selera.

Salam 1 Malaysia, changed 2 continental tires on my e210 at Sri Petaling. They billed me rm440 each with all the works.
They tires are alright. To be honest, I cannot tell between a cheap and an expensive one. Any comments? I think they are average tires.

Re: Tyres
I am using Michelin Primacy LC since May, 2009 and clocked 20k km already. Am happy to say that the tires are still up to expectation, i.e quiet, comfortable and good road handling both on dry & wet surfaces. Paid RM450 back then.
