Price were good, had four 205/40/17, had no probs with them other than the side wall started to get a lot of superficial cracks, tire man said that it wasn't a problem but it made me uncomfortable, would rate them the same as nexen, handled well and they lasted a year and and a half and still looked new when i sold the car.

nice read, those tires were on the b12, really didn't get any licks, car was used mostly for sound offs, the fact that the side walls were cracking under light use should have been an indication.

Anybody use Kumho Ecsta KU33 or Hankook Blackbird H405 ? Gotta get tyres and is either them or back to Sumitomo HTR200. (205.60.14) Other options welcome.

The sumitomo wet grip was terrible after halfway through and the noise was so bad i changed 2 front bearings thinking it was that.

I've heard that the HTR 200's can get noisy.

I'm using the HTR ZII's on the WRX's (a UHPS tyre....better class than the average "Touring" class HTR200), and the really don't seem that noisy (then again, that car is loud as hell ) :oops:

I would go with Yokohama Advans or Avid's if you could find them in Trinidad...

If not, Toyo is excellent for the price..
Laughlin and De Gannes have Kumho at ridiculously cheap prices... as in cheaper than Nexen, Triangle, Roadstone etc...

Anyone know where I can get Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position in Trinidad, and if so, what kinda money we talking.. 205/60/15's for now..

that Vimode is AMAZING
I running the 13s with AA traction...even with 360 tredwear I am still amazed by the level of grip!

and fellas, common sense will tell you anybody who looks at a round thing and names it TRIANGLE cannot be all too smart........think about it

Hard to find. Only came across an old set of Potenza RE750's in a San'do tyre shop a while aback. IIRC, Mileage Mack had the Kumho Ecsta MX (not to be confsed with the AST and SPT) in 15 and 16" sizes....and that tyre is an MPS class...very grippy.....a b it low-ish on the treadwear though.

The Ecsta SPT is also something I would keep in mind IMHO (higher "grip"-class tyre than the RE960 also).

Triangle seems to be pretty good for the price...IMO its better than Nexens as Nexens have a very soft side wall & @ highspeeds (120km) its pretty unstable.

I remember when my Bro bought his STI it came with Bridgestone Potenza's & its one of the best.

BTW whats the difference between a used car tire & 365 used rubbers???

One's a Goodyear






















The other os a GREAT YEAR :lol:

u ever felt the side wall of those triangle tyres?...about 1mth ago i went with my cuz while he was looking for some rims n tyres....the shop wanted to sell him the triangle tyrs with the rims..really great price eh..
wen u press the sidewall...it feels REALLY REALLY soft...if u hit a small pothole im pretty sure that tyre gonna burst or get badly damaged when compared to even a direzza dz101 which i still think is the best 15" tyre for 500-525

Taken off Triangle's web site....

Since its founding in 1976, Triangle has already acquired a 33 year history manufacturing tires for most applications. During all these years Triangle has always maintained a single fundamental goal: to meet its global customer demands and serve the global market through continuous research and development. This focus has allowed Triangle to become one of the largest tire producing firms, ranking 10th among tire manufacturers in the world today.

Triangle produces over 700 kinds of radial tires in more than 160 sizes, and manufactures nearly 400 types of bias tires in more than 100 sizes. Annual production exceeds 10 million units, including over 7 million in radials which have become the backbone of our organization in the form of radial passenger car tires, radial light truck and truck tires, and radial OTR tires (for industrial, construction and mining equipment).

Triangle has also become an important supplier of OEM tires for some of the best known vehicle and equipment manufacturers the world over.

Having obtained a leadership position in the domestic tire market in China, Triangle is now in the process of expanding its international presence in more than 130 countries throughout the Americas, the European Union, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Oceania and the Pacific basin, enjoying the reputation it has built with its global customers through its confidence-inspiring emphasis on maintaining top quality and reliability. The ongoing economic globalization process is providing an exceptional opportunity for Triangle to assure the brightest future for its importers, distributors, and dealers, as well as the millions of end users all over the world.
