    I drive 35-50km daily on mcarthur hiway. Sometimes, when itís late at night or dawn going home/work, i drive 100-120kph sometimes, beyond that. On corners, medyo maingat naman ako and iím not a fan of speeding on corners. So mostly bro, straight line lang talaga ako humaharurot at pag open ang hiway. 40+km lang inabot mo sa fleva? Was the fleva totally worn out? Hmm. Michellin sports 4 is too pricey for me at the moment kac.
    Fleva wasn't worn out but 2 tires had sidewall cuts due to a pothole so had to change them, changed all 4 already to be consistent. Still had 3.5 mm tread left so they would still last another 10,000 km or so.

    I would also do triple-digit speeds on McArthur and I used to drive 500-800 km a week. No issue with the tires.

    Yokohama Advan Fleva V71 test and review of the summer tire Yokohama V71 | AllTyreTests.com

    Here is the chart for wear projection. About 35000kms.

    It already has a comparo in the site for other similar performance tires but federal wasnt there.

    If a review from same site that has both.

    Federal 595EVO - Tyre Tests and Reviews * Tyre Reviews
    Yokohama Advan Fleva V701 - Tyre Tests and Reviews * Tyre Reviews

    Based on those reviews, if priced close, go with yokohama. The federal doesnt have good grip in the wet as a start.

    My firsthand experience with the V701 is that it lasts longer than 35,000 km.

    I got mine at 28,000 km and replaced at 67,000km (39k km total) but with 3.5mm left which is at least 30% tread remaining so the tires would have lasted 55,000 km.

    For reference, this is the conversion of % tread remaining vs mm tread remaining:

    Thanks bro for the link. That first comparo with other performance tires made me doubt to buy the yokohama advan fleva. Ang kulelat naman sa ranking lol.

    Because you're comparing it to better, more expensive tires like the Michelin PS4, Conti Sport 6, Goodyear Assymetric F1, etc.

    But if you compare that to other cheap brands like Achilles 2233, Accelera Phi, Neuton NT5000, etc, it performs just fine.

    I've won races with my V701. Performance isn't as good as the other tires above, but you won't notice unless you drive fast in corners. Kung McArthur/NLEX lang, no difference at all.



    If you really want high-performance tires but kapos sa budget, you can get GT SX2 or Achilles 123S. These are very grippy tires that are great for track use but are have much more road noise and will not last as long as a road tire like the V701.

    For the same price as the Fleva V701, would also consider the Kumho Ecsta KU39. Had them before the Fleva, roughly the same price (5.2k vs 5.5k) and it had better grip.

    Fleva would probably last longer though (it's always a tradeoff between grip and longevity).

    In any case, the V701 is a pretty safe choice and decent value for its price.

    I would like to ask for recommendations for the replacement of the 2 front tires of our Innova. Daily use involves driving my niece to and from school everyday (less than 10k distance) with an occasional visit to the province (Laguna) once or twice a month.

    Marami ako napapansin na innova mabilis mapudpod yung gulong...

    I'm GUESSING it's a combination of having passenger car tires on a heavier MPV.

    Suggestions: replace with STOCK tires (which aren't bad!)

    Or: SUV or Light Truck tires (like what you get on the hiace) if you can find it in the right size.

    Whatever you do, remember to have the NEW TIRES PUT AT THE BACK!

    We did this for our last gen Innova. Replaced the worn Yokohama Aspecs with Michelin Agilis. Wasn't able to track mileage but for sure they did last a lot longer. But ride quality suffered from the stiffer sidewalls.

Low budget yet good quality tires
