Just got back from the Toyo shop (in JB)......err.....

are you ready for this!!

__________DRB______T1R
165/55/14 = RM280!!!___ X
195/50/15 = RM300!!!___RM250
195/55/15 = RM340!!!___Rm290
205/55/16 = RM360____RM350 - They bought this size alot, so prices are not so high like other size.

Can negotiate further...but I think can only less Rm10 per piece.


My God...Street Sport tires costing more than UHP or Extreme?

Made of Jewels or what? Just because they got profit selling the T1R they think they can get the same buying power with the DRB..

I wonder if it is worth the money investing in those....only suckers will buy them at that price..

Maybe KL selling cheaper...anyone checked?



wa...........more expansive than T1R, who will buy? i thought DRB is pne class below T1R??

Yup...looks really unique...hmm..what will they think of next?
Some others tyres already have it

So far there are some feedback from across the causeway...
Wets-T1R V pattern...there is no guessing. Wider and more grooves
Dry-DRB might even be better than T1R....T1R dry grip not the greatest in its class to start with.
Too many grooves, therefore less rubber contact, therefore dry traction suffers
Comfort-DRB is more quieter.
Could be because of narrower groves

Any feedback from other users...

i think I'll go there again to check out the price tomorrow...DRB and Primacy LC...
Tell me what size you guys want?

195/55/15....others?
Vios 14inch?

for the size 205 55 R16, is only rated at V. for UHP tyres, i thought for this size at least must be W rated ??

bro. andrew,

Depends loh. Quiet and comfort tyre speed rating normally lower....
For your info T1-R only "W" loh.....not "Y"

I had that hunch about the price already and you confirmed it.
T!-R last time newly launch also pretty high priced and now with higher Yen worst....
Price for 195/55/R15 can buy 2 pcs of V12Evo..... smile_shock.gif

as someone here mentioned that DRB is UHP tyre. my thinking is in order to qualify as UHP, it must be at least W rated, right?

V rated also can be catergorised as UHP mehhh???

I think bro. azbro mention DRB is somewhere in between CT-01 and UHP T1-R.....and not DRB is UHP..
But sometimes depends on the sizes.
Certain tyre even like ZE-912, 14" are Rated "H" 15 and above rated "V"
There are some 17" rated "W", and 18" are rated "Y"
So maybe the 17" DRB are rated "W"?

All depends on the construction of the tyres....as these are Speed rating.....
