hi there, it seems like this thread no longer active..
anyway would like to ask for input on this tyre:

im considering getting a set of new tyres for my inspira (215/50/17)
1st priority for this set of new tyres is definitely comfort and road noise..
dry grip not a very high demand for me, but i usually drove at the same speed as dry during wet conditions..

to add things up, i actually comparing the malaysian made TOYO DRB with MICHELIN PRIMACY 3 ST...

sifu2, please share your input.. thx!

If comfort and road noise is your priorities, then Michelin 3ST should be better as this is made for that category. Toyo DRB is lower end UHP tyres and being directional could be more noise later on when worn. Toyo tyre model at par with 3ST is their C1-S. C1-S is Toyo comfort performance tyres.... smile_tongue.gif

thanks daigor!
ended up using Michelin Primacy 3ST.
surprisingly i still find my old Roadstone N7000 more comfy with Michelin Primacy 3 ST.
I have to switch back to stock suspension due to the increase harshness... (Penang road condition, u know smile_blackeye.gif )
Not saying that 3ST is harsh or what, this is probably due to the N7000 having a super soft sidewall
(N7000's sidewall is too soft till you can feel it during hard cornering, or entering a curve at slightly above highway legal speed)

Like what Michelin claims, i think 3ST is quite a well balanced/ all rounded tyre.. smile_thumbup.gif

Wow, Roadstone N7000 still softer, but being directional should be pretty noisy, right?
