Try lynex, buy my EO, spark plugs etc there
They also carry good EO like motul and Mobil 1
For 1.6L car, how much EO should buy? 4L?

Depends on your make and model , can check car manual.

My car use 3L as I always tell the mech pour 3L the rest pass back to me. 3L for my ride will not overfill EO.

16" still cheaper in Johor. Really depends on what's your priority.

Front wear out more because you didn't rotate your tyres. I rotate mine every 5-10k or whenever I pass by Carclick Garage

Any sizes below 16", JB should be cheaper....
Front tires worn off faster is quite normal. Check the worn condition of the tires if is worn evenly.
Personally, i go for tire rotation/ balancing / alignment when i do EO change.

Thanks guys for your inputs. Any shop to recommend? I think I would change the front tyres then start to balance and rotate during every servicing. Did not do that in the past. Also, I heard that if only change a pair, the old tires should be swapped to front. Is this the case?

LCH Brother
NYK auto
Tyreworld
Tryemart

Only LCH and trye world accept credit card the rest pay by cash.

Usually I put old tyres at the back then new pair in front
So that the front new will wear our faster to the same as rear old tyres.

Then u can rotate next time and prolong the old tyres lifespan.

When buy from them try to ask free balancing and alignment
Usually is free balancing only, alignment free when u buy 4pcs.

Depends where i visiting, did mine frequently on the following shops:-

1. Syarikat Lim Chin Hin
Jalan Pingai Taman Pelangi
80400 Johor Bahru, Johor.

2. BC Tyres & Rim. (Find them on FB)

Usullay, i goes to the first shop if am/ around custom area. After shop, wash car pump petrol and return.

For the 2nd shop, if i have time and craving for laska. Is a distance away.

Personally, i changed front set tires once at 2nd shop months back. Comes with free balance and only discounted alignment (sighzz).
Buy 4 tires, free alignment and balancing.
Recently, returned for usual wheel alignment/ rotation/ balance. The shop boss suggest dun need rotate, next round then rotate with the rear set as rear is old set. I think he suggest that to keep all 4 tires worn evenly down then next time change all fours tgt... Business mind.... lolz
