    My 2016 FXT is still riding on stock 18” rims with 225/55/18 tires. If you can find sporty SUV tires for 10k or less, that would be great.

    No point getting a passenger-car Pilot Sport 4 for your FXT. You'll never reach the limit of grip anywhere outside of a track. PS4 SUV also has higher load rating and longer wear.

    I will look into this, just got home from Ben’s ok and yea most tires of this size are just “by order”.
    Anyway to be more specific im trying to achieve something like thd subaru forester ts that came out of jp and aus. but it uses turanza on 245/45/19 too.

    IMO pointless to use UHP tires on a commuter. Starting from my early 20s I've always had something like AD05/06, AD07, AD08 Neovas or Bridgestone RE-11s on my car. Nauubos (and IMO nasasayang) lang sa daily drive, plus they have more road noise and are prone to tramlining. Took me till my mid-30s before I learned that lesson hehe

    These days touring tires lang for daily, and have the UHPs (or semi-slicks) on a spare set of lightweight wheels for trackdays. For daily drive even lower tier tires like the RE003 are good enough.



    Though the Michelin PS 4S seemingly turns this paradigm on its head again. Good road noise and wet handling, plus close to the same level of grip as most 200-treadwear tires while using a 300-treadwear compound.

    Whistler suggested Latitude Sport 3 or Primacy SUV or PS4 SUV. You can check on these models.

    Have both RE003 and PS4. Much better longevity and grip on the PS4, despite both priced roughly the same.

    I don't recommend the RE003 when you can get a PS4. I don't see any advantages of the RE003 vs the PS4.

    Found a set of michelin primacy4 st with the exact spec. I think it really fits my criteria, grip, braking distance and feedback for daily drive.

    The Primacy 4 is a good tire - not PS4 good when it comes to outright grip, but a very good match for a crossover which won't be able to maximize the PS4's grip anyway. And the Primacy 4 should last longer. Michelin Primacy 4 st vs PS4

    Test drive mo at high speeds. Let us know How it performs. I have not reached 15k km yet with my Dueler HP Sports and I will hold on to it for another 21k km.

    With my daily commute at SLEX, rarely do I get past 150kmh unlike when you’re in SCTEX where you can do 200kmh or more.

    Upgrade ka na rin to Brembo NAO pads. They are better than stock in both slow and fast braking.
