    just curious to know more. my cars' stock tires are 205/65/15. isuzu xto car ko. i changed tire recently. dahil sa mahal ang new tires, i opted to buy japan surplus tires, 215/65/15 at PhP 900/tire. napansin ko, medyo bumagal ng kunti. reading this thread however, worries me. i learned that there are ratings for hot and cold countries. yong nabili at naikabit ko, yokohama ice navi studless. gamit sa snow, for sure. malaking problema ba ito?

    Ice/snow tires aren't meant to be used in the dry. In hot weather, they experience too much friction (which is why it feels slow), and they will wear down quickly.

    para po sa mga tire experts,

    do you have snapshot info about michelin energy mxv4 215/55/17 93v rating? yun kasi stock tires on my daily ride. pansin ko kasi minsan while it was raining and i was turning left at an intersection, coming from a stop light, the rear end kinda slipped. though the road was less than perfect (i.e. a bit rippled) but the car's got esc (i.e. that should help, di ba?).

    could it be more of the road being rippled plus it was raining (i.e. road tar & oil could have created a film as it surfaced?) and i was making a turn or because of the stock tires?

    thanks in advance for the inputs.

    I've always felt the "Energy" tires to be slippery. It's because they're fuel-conserving tires with low rolling resistance.

    But you're right... it's mostly because it was raining, slick and you were making a turn. Pero take it easy, anyway, just in case.

    though i just came from a stop & barely making 20mph at the turn, i've suspected the energy series to be that way lalo na kapag umulan dito... dahil bihira lang mangyari ay tila lumulutang ung dumi sa kalsada making it more slippery..

    am now taking extra precaution & told my wife that regardless of safety ABC's present in a vehicle (i.e. ABS, ESC, EBD, TCS, etc), they will only work if there is contact between the tire & the road.

    tnx niky, appreciate it..
