Yes, Malaysian market is very price sensitive. That is why Hankook used to sell so well - the minute they tried to jack up prices, sales fell.

I think the same went for Michelin a certain extent. They jacked up prices a lot in 2013 and many people looked at alternatives, e.g. Nexen N8000 for PS3. They thought that the Michelin brand was worth a lot more. But the market spoke and Michelin reduced prices (when the price of rubber collapsed).

Now the same is happening with Hankook and it is the same story repeated. Lets hope the tyre manufacturers/distis learnt their lesson and not overprice their products. The market simply cannot accept it!

Yup, the Michelin ones was bad. When they launch PS3 especially for the 15" market, I have a lot of friends, members and followers. They launch at affordable price like RM220. Many use but by the next change the price went up to 290, and many switch brands from there. Now at least got RE-003 to compete with them..... :lol:

Yes, I have a friend who needs to change his PS3s soon. He will definitely look at RE-003 and Yoko AE-50 (for sharper cost savings).

The economy and RM exchange rate is doing badly - so he wants to be more conservative with his spending. Also said that he is getting older and there is no need to drive like a madman ....

PS3 direct comparison will be RE-003, Hankook V12Evo2 and New Yoko Fleva V701 (This should be S-Drive replacement)

AE-50 is mid category

Yes, he was aware that the AE-50 is not UHP, hence his remark that he is getting old and there is no need to drive like a madman!

Ventus V12 Evo2 for the win. Switched to these from Kumho V720 (195.50.15)
Being used to EUHP levels of grip, V12 E2 was still inspiring in dry conditions, and performs better than the V720 in wet conditions, as this was expected since V720 blocks are larger, and does not cut through and disperse water as efficiently as the V12 E2.  
Sidewall's a bit soft for hard cornering performance, however play around with tire pressures and you somewhat overcome this (cold 34psi worked well for me). 
A huge difference in comfort compared to V720, in terms of road noise and absorbing shock. 
Bang for the buck price for it's performance. 
Curious to see how it performs once thread wears down to 70%.

Well, that is the difference between extreme tyre and UHP tyres. V720 are extreme category more for track play. Harder sidewall, softer compound, less grooves, more rubber contact. V12Evo2 are in UHP and is more for daily use. Good in both dry and wet, particularly in wet, since for daily can rain anytime. Softer sidewall for comfort....
