I`m using 195/55, quite ok overall for me, as it is cheaper compare to
other tires I was looking. (got mine for RM157/pc @ Sg. Petani, Kedah.)

Pros: thick thread, can last long mileage, not bad for wet performance.
Cons: loud, compare to previous tire Goodfyear NCT5.

Hi benny,

Thanks for the input and can I assumed your review is based on the
comparison between D01 and NCT5 (when both are new if you can recall)?

Ya, I compare it base on previous experience on NCT5... Just got the D01
about a month only, as vr2turbo mentioned above, good treadwear and good
traction rated A, quite satisfy with it until now. But need to mention
again here, it rolls louder on highway than NCT5s. For dry and wet grip, I
think it`s better too as I drive my car quite aggressive and frequent
(traveling around 100km per day for work).

mubull,

No lah, happen to see the D01 quite recently...ha! ha!

benny,

Your D01 are unidirection tyres, therefore cutting through water is not an
issue, but traction A tyres are better for dry and not wet in straight line
braking. As mentioned in another post, aquaplaning is due to tread design,
and grip is base on rubber compound. They work hand in hand.

rdgs,

Hi vr2turbo..

I'm back again for tyre..my D01 almost get botak within 1 year..:)

My comment on D01 -it serve better then NCT GY because it is soft
compound..am i right vr2turbo ?

It run very good in dry but not able to provide adequate aquapla for
middle wet water.
