    Yokohama offered me earlier a Yokohama BlueEarth ES32 for 3.4k each, is this a good price?
    Yup. Fair enough price for an entry-level tire for a midrange Japanese brand.

    Tama ba Advan series is better than Bluearth?
    Naka Advan Fleva 205/45/r17 ako ngayon, 4th year pa lang meron na bakbak parang ang bilis maupod expecting at least 5 yrs...

    Ano kaya better alternatives - same price range with yokohama?

    The Advan series are sport tires. They offer better grip and handling over the BluEarth series but generally, sport tires have shorter life span.

    I donít think it will last 5 years specially if you do between 10k to 15k km per year. Maybe 3 years would do for a sport tire.

    Magkaiba ang bakbak sa upod. If you're measuring kung ubos na tread ng tires mo, you should measure if pantay na yung tread sa treadwear indicator:



    My old Fleva V701 lasted 40,000 km before needing replacmement.

    You need to replace tires every 5-6 yrs, or if you hit your treadwear indicator.

    Btw, the V701s aren't good sport tires at all. Less grip than my stock Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2 or my previous Kumho Ecsta LE Sport. Only Advan by name but no match to the real Advan V105 or AD08.

    Less than 10k per year lang tinatakbo ng vios gen2 - pang hatid sa school ng kids (via sumulong highway), around 25kms balikan na.

    Mas tatagal pala kung BluEarth baka ito na lang ipalit namin.

    40k km for passenger car tires is about right. Ganyan din sakin with my Fleva.

    If you go for BluEarths you might get a little bit longer mileage but sedan tires all typically wear out before 50k km.

    Bakbak? Have a look at the UTQG rating on the tires.

    If I'm just hazarding a guess, it might be possible nung binili niya yung kotse, older pa yung tires niya in the manufacturing date.

    Don't think TS posted it though so I can't be sure if its older than 6 years.

    Ah that could be possible. The compound could deteriorate acceleratively at its end-of-life.

    Have recently replaced my 07 Santa Fe's Nankang Surpax SP5 fronts. Lasted 2 years and 4 months or 17448kms according to my records. Lasted about twice as long as the Westlakes that preceded it, but not particularly satisfactory either, though I have to say the grip is indeed very good while it lasted.

    Now trying out Thunderer Ranger SUV 235/65/R17s which I got for 5k each.
