Default Tyres Recommendation 245/45/18

Its time for tyre change,
Dear all,
Any good recommendation for comfort and quiet tyres?
Seems like cycle and carriage is a tad too high on pricing

I changed mine in Jun last year.
Michelin PSS 245/45/R18 XL.
If I recall correctly, it cost around $350 per tyre, inclusive of installation etc.

Hi all,

change mine at "arrow"

Initially was quoted $265 each for Yokohama Ae50, cycle and carriage
However, from reviews from various shop, seems that tyre wear quite high.
Not really recommended for C5 as its heavier.. "Dunno how true or maybe shops dun carry them"

But personally, I had my concern as I had use Yokohama before and it's typically a skid tyre.

Drove over to "Arrow" and was quoted $220 for toyo types.

Noise written is 76db as compare to Michelin @ 70db
Did a quick search online and find that review not too bad.
Quiet tyre and good for dry and wet conditions.

Decided to go ahead but not before pushing for better price, best best was $220 from initial quote of $230, but was recommended alignment @ $80 and Bosch battery @ $165

Total damage $1025/-

Tyre change was fast, efficient, however, during alignment, the mechanic told me there is actually no need to do alignment in future as the rear cannot be adjusted. Was told to do 10k tyre rotation for uniform wear.

Left "Arrow" a happy man,
Of coz, feeling must be physiological, but
1. Very quiet drive
2. Braking distance is significantly shorter
3. Dun have the wobbly feel.

Guess I am trying to justify my spending, but "arrow" efficiency is recommendable, pricing wise I didn't manage to compare much, but personally feel that it's not too exp..

Michelin, Pirelli, Dunlop are not bad. Hankook Korean brand also not bad.

All brands have quiet tyres. Better grip during wet road or dry road etc.

Need to look at the tyre lines. Along the road, less noise but other than the rubber quality, grip compromises. Against the road, abit nosy but grip better with shorter distance. Of cos, your brake quality affects braking distance.

Thicker, less bumpy ride but uglier. Thinner with big rims nicer but bumpy.

Also, pls note the Year make of the tyres. Many goes on offer are those almost or already expired tyres i.e. rubber harden. I won't buy those bcos you won't get the quality on whatever you read.

Hope the above helps! =)

Hi bro,

I am not a tire expert however. i think wheel alignment is something that need to be done let say once every 2 year. The rear may not be able to adjusted due to design. However, when wheel alignment is done, the front 2 tires alignment are check and adjusted if needful.

just my 1/2 cent. Hope you do not mind.

Happy motoring
