Yeah. I first thot that the V8RS will get noisier when it piles on more
mileage. Well, it's still actually quiet after having it as my rear tyres
for > 20K km now.

Again, I must say that tyres wear down very slowly when fitted to the
back of an front drive car. That's why my rear V8RS still looks and feel
new. Later, when I swap the front and back tyres then I will know whether
the V8RS can still be as quiet after accumulating high mileages as front
tyres.

dweichoe,

My rear V8RS still looks rather new and black. When I wash my car, I also
wash the tyres. Perhaps u never wash your tyres when u wash your car. Big Smile

Reply:
My contention has always been that it is better to have steering control in a skidding situation than grip in the rear.
While recently there have been some studies which recommend that the better tyres be placed at the rear, many of these studies have been conducted with vehicles equipped with electronic stability systems which take over control of the throttle and brakes when they detect that there is loss of control.
In a front wheel drive car, if there is loss of traction on the front tyres, you not only lose engine power but you lose steering control and that to me is more serious than feeling the rear tyres losing grip and easing off on the power and steering the car to safety.
One must remember that loss of grip is not something that comes suddenly unless one is driving like a madman or one hits a patch of slippery surface.
For the experience, try driving a kart in the wet with dry tyres and you will see what I mean.
In the final analysis, if one drives sensibly, it is unlikely one would get into such a dangerous situation.
Anyway, we are not talking about bald tyres but used and new ones.
Hydroplaning is a different issue as it happens even with new tyres and is also related to the speed one hits the water and the depth of the water.

But in FWD cars, easing off the power you will be in control already...... smile_tongue.gif

Hello tire sifu here,

I am planning to try Hankook tires may be the Evo12 for my 205/55/16.

I found out price for the Evo 12 and V8 about same RM325/pc.
Can i assume the Evo12 should be better than V8?

Is there a big difference between Evo12 compared to the older V8 in terms of grip and noice?

TQ.
