Cant really find much review for the new V12 Evo2. Any sifu can enlighten me by campring it against PS3 and RE003 in terms of perfmorance & price?

thank you

Local feedback very few because V12Evo2 only started their sales quite recently only.

For comfort, grip and handling PS3 is better because sidewall softer.

More aggressive driving RE-003, some say better in dry against PS3, but wet slightly behind PS3

V12Evo was said to be slightly behind PS3 those day but this is V12Evo2 so could have been improved.

 

If still can wait until year end, hopefully PS4 and Goodyear Asy3 might be launched

Is it that noisy? RE-003 is asy pattern and V12Evo2 is directional and most mentioned directional will be noisier when worn.....

I've been looking for new tyre replacement recently and first target is RE003.

However, with the heavy shortage in the market now and mixture of good & bad review, think most likely I'll choose V12 over RE003.

Anyway, heard V12 also no much stock in the market now :(

It does not seem to be as popular as the ori V12, maybe because it is no longer directional? Not so macho?

 

Perhaps theRE003 are better.

Not sure of the story behind but this is what I think happened. V12 Evo was very popular and when V12Evo2 came out they did not bring in. Maybe is currency issue and price was to high to compete. At that time I was also waiting but they kept pushing V2 Concept 2 and S1 Noble 2, both are All seasons tyres. Then a few months back they started bringing in the V12Evo2 but prices were too high. Lately they drop price, then started to sell well. At the same time, Kai Shen the distributor lost the distribution rights, as Hankook Malaysia started on their own. Kai Shen now sells Nexen.
