    I changed my stock Dueler HL 400 with Dueler HP Sport. The Dueler HP Sport is the stock tires of the newer Forester SK. The Dueler HP Sport feels grippier.

    If on a budget, you can opt for Achilles or Accelera or Cooper or Falken or GT.

    Most likely walang ganyang size yung mga mid/budget brand bro. Maybe try Dunlop or Falken.

    Given jut's endorsement of Michelin's PS4, I'd very much like to try their PS4 SUV line. Sadly no suitable size for my PPV or the FXT.

    Stock size is 225/55/18 but you can opt for 235/50/18 for the replacement other than Bridgestone. Cooper offers the 225/55/18 size but you have to check with a local dealer if available.

    Most Bridgestone dealers donít carry the stock Dueler HL 400 locally so you are forced to use the Dueler HP Sport. SRP of the Dueler HP Sport is 16k each.

    Hello, ask lang advice mga boss clueless talaga kasi ako pagdating sa kotse, ano po marerecommend niyo na best course of action para sa situation ko bale last saturday kasi napansin ko kasi flat yung 1 gulong sa harap ng Ford Fiesta 2014 Hatchback namin then dinala ko sa local vulcanizing shop and ayun may umbok na ung gulong then binentahan ako ni manong ng gulong Accelera Eco Plush for 1k php (idk kung ano naisip ko that time at pinatos ko yun, sakto lang naman siya hindi pudpod pero kung i-cocompare sa stock na gulong ko mas makapal pa dn ung stock) hindi kasi pede ung spare tire ipalit since R14 lang un, then after nung papunta na kami sa bahay ni misis napansin ko na kumakabig pakaliwa ung kotse, tinry ko ibalik kaso ayun nasaraduhan na ako since limited ung time of operation samin dahil sa covid, then nag ask ako sa kuya ko sabi niya ipa-try ko ipa wheel alignment baka daw dahil dun, then today nag pa wheel alignment naman me pero ganun pa din (at nahihiya naman ako ibalik kay manong since medyo ilang araw na lumipas tapos ibabalik ko), kaya naisip ko baka mas ok na 2 gulong nalang palitan kasi nga baka dahil d na pantay kaya ganun.

    So question ko po dapat 2 gulong lang ba palitan ko or 4 na? at anong marerecommend niyo na hindi masyadong bubutas ng bulsa pero quality pa din? 185/55R15 86V Hankook Optimo ung specs ng stock tire.

    28k palang ung mileage ng car (Ford Fiesta 2014 Hatchback) namin since minsan lang talaga ginagamit, ginagamit lang sya pag pumupunta ng mall or nag oouting, pero ngayon since may anak na me at hirap ang public transpo medyo madalas na nagagamit.

    TLDR: Recommendation for budget tire pero di ma compromise ang safety ng passengers.

    ^^^ Are you still using the stock tires? If so, replace all 4 tires as they may already be beyond their usuable life. Tires need to be replaced every 5 years, despite the low mileage on them.

    Achilles 2233 if you're on a budget. Less than 3k per tire for your size.

    Yokohama BluEarth or Advan Fleva V701, around 4k for your size.

    If you have the budget, go for the best road tire, Michelin Pilot Sport 4. Around 6-7k per tire siguro for your size.

    I used Accelera Alpha on my Fiesta before. It was better than in terms of grip compared to the stock Hankook Optimo. It is priced around the sane as Achilles.

    Thanks for the reponses, but where to buy achilles or acccelera?

    Yokohama offered me earlier a Yokohama BlueEarth ES32 for 3.4k each, is this a good price?

    I just checked a while ago achilles 2233 doesn't seem to have a size that fits my 15" stock mags.

Low budget yet good quality tires
