yah but wondering how come the 15/16" can get in JB but not bigger?

was driving getz previously so know 15" tyres is way cheaper there.

is there a Toyota C-HR group anywhere? cant find it.
google turns up a group but i think that is set up by a PI for selling that car previously
Yes bro. Facebook, look for COGS. There's a Telegram group.

Black listed Ah Wee long long time ago.... Heard or pass by this shop makes be *&@#. Seen many SG cars whenever i pass by this shop, i was like good luck to these owners... lolz

I think Sheng Auto got do number plates too... You may want to ask Jackson for a quote.
Carrots Oh well, as long as they feel they got a good deal.. ignorance is bliss..

Yup, I WhatsAppd Jackson he quoted RM170 for a pair also. May do from him cos the other shop X Line gave me address for another shop to go and order which is a bit further in.

You may try to following:
I went last year before but most design suit their local.
Terima kasih abang PM'd them on FB they said have, RM200 for a set and RM220 for a polished one..I asked if have sample photo to see the difference, they sent this but I can't seem to tell them apart


I also got quote RM300 from Lightrix for backlit no. plate pair...looks quite chio Never see in SG though..think there was some discussion about this here some time back..need to go dig..

read a few comments on tyres.

18" michelin PS4 worth it to get in JB?

Thanks
Not usually The bigger tyres there are more ex than SG.

18" maybe not ideal to go JB ba.
Need to compare around.

PM HellHunter; he always seem to got good lobang for tires?
Ah, eh, no la.. I just keep hunting around for deals..
Although I know that generally, LCH(not bros) has the best tyre prices unless one of the other shops got promo-
LCH Batteries & Tyres
54, Jalan Nakhoda 2, Taman Ungku Tun Aminah, 81300 Skudai, Johor, Malaysia
+60 7-554 7099

Issit okay to use 2nd hand trye left a lot of meat?

Anyone of u use different trye for front and back. I mean different brand
Used tyres are fine, just know the things to lookout for-
No older than 5 years
Check the rubber thoroughly to ensure no cracks are forming, the sidewall is proper etc. Got guides online how to inspect a used tyre.

It isn't an issue. Just match the tyre on each axle. Don't front left one type front right another type..although some people(including me ) have used different tyres also and your car won't explode la bro but supposedly may affect handling or something..there was no significant difference for me..ymmv The general advice is, and I still prefer to match the same tyre for each axle..where possible.

Can but I would always prefer newer ones. I would avoid if it's 2016 which is like 2 years old already, though I'm currently using 2016 ones
Aiya 2016 still new la Rubber can last quite long if not abused or stored improperly..US govt.(and others) regulation is no older than 5 years if I'm not wrong.. Just need to monitor the condition and replace if cracks start forming etc.

Ahh.. don't be so obvious with the engine oil or parts. Keep somewhere can't see one else later kenna "taxed" at the kastam.
I learnt this the very hard way what I was bringing in wasn't even new or to be fitted in JB but I couldn't prove that it's used and I wasn't getting it fitted that night..so pay la..

Just take the green channel, far left and far right lane depending on which counter you clear..they very rarely check there, of course best also to unseal the engine oil bottle so even if they check can just say your engine leaks and it's for top up and drive. Just put in plastic bag with some dirty rags.

I got mine used set via carousel. You need to verify tread depth before installation.
I asked a few in JB recently for my size but no luck.
You can try:
1. BC Tyres & Sports Rim. This one quite far from JB. +6018782 0199.
2. NYK Auto Service- JB. +6016786 6083
3. Tyre Mart Service Center. +6010535 4720

Good luck
Okay bro. Will WA these shop to check.

Kim hoe and AL tyres , this 2 names I alwyss see in caroseull.

Yah bro. I usually change in a pair. Same brand for one axle.
I usually change 35-40k mileage for tires.

How come this shop will sell used tire. Issit trade in from other cars to buy new tires.

The only time I used the 1 different tyre was on a car I was leasing that was going to scrap soon and I kenna like 6-7 nails through my tyre(Tuas ftw) that went through the tread, sidewall everywhere.. went Kim Hoe to get 1 pc 17" Michelin with some meat for $50 installed

Oh, sorry, you're looking for used pair? Not sure if LCH carry that but can try asking. Can also ask the others, sometimes got trade in pair. Down to luck...can also check Carousell. I had surveyed the JB shops for new tyre price recently. 17" still cheaper here but LCH was quite close..

so for 17" PS4, SG or JB?
This is what I recently checked the shops for..SG still cheaper but LCH offered me the best price for JB for 17" PS4..
https://sg.carousell.com/p/245-45-17...ale-202102456/
https://sg.carousell.com/search/prod...michelin%20ps4

I had checked for 225/45R17 LCH offer RM495, Hawk Tayar and others about RM540..SG got for S$150

Oh, forgot to mention, I actually looked up used tyres in Johor recently and there are a bunch but these places usually not much service..you must go there and hunt yourself..will have a lot of nonsense tyres but got chance to strike gold also Hawk Tayar also sells but must check with individual outlets if have the type you want..usually a lot easier if you just specify size and don't care about the brand so much..

HBE also worth checking because they sell a lot of used rims..people upsize rim, they sometimes trade in the tyre..

These are some of the used tyre shops you can consider dropping by to check-
Nktyres
No 2 Jalan Waja 3, Lot 6662, kawasan perindustrian pandan 81100 johor bahru Malaysia
81100 Johor Bahru

Yus Tire Trading
17, Jln Titiwangsa 2, Taman Tampoi Indah, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
