    after being driving for around 4 years, i think it's time to change my tyre set! haha.. never change before.
    wanna change because i think the pattern of tyre also almost gone, feel that would be dangerous if continue using it
    but it is really expensive to get a new set leh, thats why i drag it until now. lol
    anyone know any dealer? which selling cheaper tyre. im now staying in ipoh..

    4 years without one tyre change? Wow! What is the mileage travelled for the 4 yrs period?
    You might want to pay more attention to the tyres as I myself have learnt it the hard way...
    Probably if you mention the size, it d be easier for ppl to help

    If I were you, I would drive down to Singapore and change all 4 tyres together. Tyres are much cheaper across the causeway. At the same time can do some shopping and sight seeing too. Definitely worth the trip. Coming Raya holiday is a good opportunity.

    I think this mth should have promotion for michelin tyre, can go to your nearby area to check it out. Because Hari raya is coming soon, usually will have promotion during festive mths.

    I have not done it but that's what I plan to do when my tyres are due for changing. A friend of mine save some $3k plus changing his F10 tyres in Singapore. Depending on the size of tyre and brand you will save more the bigger the tyre and for branded imported tyres.

    if u wan to save money there is a solution for u. :rock:
    since u cant afford to change whole set of tyre, i suggest u to change the back tyre first as back tyre is more important.

    You can't go wrong with any of the established brand like Michelin, Continental and Bridgestone. After you decide which brand and size, you can email or SMS for a quotation from Singapore. Compared how much you can save and then decide whether it's worth making a trip down under.

    hey! im thinking to change my tyre also, alr been using for 4 years. lol
    my friend just shared a news with me that MIchelin is now having Hari Raya promotion lo, maybe u can check it out bbphire!
    the promo is upon purchase, u can get a petrol card worth RM30, and with the proof of purchase, u can redeem the gift la.

    For Singapore, don't bother making the run down if you're using anything smaller than 18". Based on past experience, the savings increases the larger the size. I saved RM 1,600 for a set of four 19's PSS and RM 2,000 savings for a set of 20's. 18's very marginal, 17' ends up being more expensive on most brands.

    Finally replace my GY RFTs after 57k km on the road. I did not expect this to happen to one of my GY RFTs. Was driving along Kesas this morning and suddenly the iDrive prompt Low Tyre Pressure, Stop Carefully. I continue to drive as I have to send my kids to school in Subang. After one to two km, the iDrive prompt that left rear tyre loss pressure. I continue to drive to Subang and drop my kids to school before heading back to Klang tyre shop. On the way to Klang along Federal Highway, rear side of my car started vibrating but still drivable and controllable. By the time I reach the Klang tyre shop, this is the condition of my left rear RFT tyre.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
