    Am one of those who shifted from Dunlop SP01s to Kumho Ecstas. Completely satisfied with the Ecstas. Only gripe probably is that makapal yung sidewall niya compared to other tires of the same size (205/55R16) but that's minor.

    Super hindi worth it mag-SP01 pag replacement. Even the CASA suggests the cheaper Dunlop LM703 instead.

    How many tyres are you getting? One piece only (for the spare)?

    If you're going to use the tyre, better to always change by pairs (left and right front or left and right rear) at least. You can then put one of your used tyres as a spare. If all your road tyres are good and even, then just get the one piece new one for the spare.

    Stop contemplating. Go for the Toyo DRBs na... higher thread wear rating versus the RE002s.



    These were the DRBs from the Vios after 45-50K kms.

    Parang okay nga yung Potenza RE002 but it has a much lower treadwear rating than other tires near its price range. I wonder how much better the grip is though, since it seems to be leaning heavily towards the performance market than the regular car owner.

    As much as I value performance, I wouldn't want my tires to wear out in half the time that other tires would.

    usually you'll see the OEM undercoating already (similar color to the car). Best to do it also during the hot season IMO.
