    Could you please elaborate. I'm eyeing for 225/45 Yoko Advan Fleva. What would you recommend then? For city, up north and down south.

    Overall, I'd say the Fleva V701 isn't deserving of the "Advan" title. While its tread design looks similar to the old UHP Yokohama S.Drive, the performance is pretty far apart. It's a typical road tire with a sporty name.

    For city driving only, then the Yokohamas Flevas are fine. But for the same price, I would go for Kumho Ecsta LE Sport. Grippier and quieter tires both wet and dry.

    I used to track my Advan Flevas and they would reach the limit of grip at every corner. Kahit paakyat lang ako ng Baguio napapascreech ko tires when cornering. Yung Kumho Ecsta mas makapit talaga.

    If budget allows, go for the Michelin PS4 which is the best tire for ordinary affordable road cars - perfect mix of grip, comfort, road noise, and durability. Price is a bit high at 8k per tire for 18s vs 5k Yokohamas, but worth the upgrade if you drive spiritedly.

    If budget is constrained, the Yoko Fleva is par for the course vs other 5k-ish tires like the Dunlop LM704, and like I said at that price I prefer the Kumho Ecsta.

    There are even cheaper tires like the Achilles 2233 or Accelera Phi if spending on tires is not a priority.

    I wanted to ask about the best dealer for battery and contact.
    My batt is already acting up and from time to time it shows this.

    My workaround so far is to disconnect negative for few seconds and reconnect. It is probably due for replacement despite the CTEK. Afterall, it is turning 3 years and 3 months for the odo so id say above average. Casa charges 15500 with labor and 13k for the battery alone.

    Ive seen this on my notes but not sure where to get.

    Battery: Yellowtop or Yuasa so long as Q85 and up.

    Thanks!

    I had my mazda 3 2016 model spend 1 month in our garage.. no start or charging.. still using the original battery. After 1 month of hiatus.. i started the car.. it struggled a bit due to weak battery but it started.. showed battery malfunction and istop not working error.. after 2 hours of driving, i turned off the car.. then next morning performed i-stop reset (holding istop button for 3 seconds ignition ON) and all error messages are gone!
