Previously using EP200 and it's struggling to get a grip in condo carparks. Not sure if EP300 have this problem still, maybe you can let me know? Thanks
This car since I have taken over has always been on 300. Previously, it would make really loud screeching noise when turning in carparks with those smoother floorings and like urs would struggle to grip at times on those surfaces.

Never saw that as a big problem though and as what I was looking for is more on value for money, I went with it again. Also had the option of Michelin XM2 and Hancook at the same price. Continental would have cost 35RM more per piece.

Thankfully these new ones are faring way better and it is
kind of strange as the older ones had the above mentioned problems right from the beginning even when newer.

Perhaps they had some improvements made over time? or maybe different country of origin.

according to him, a jb shop quoted him a price that was only cheaper by abit for 4 pieces. thats why he decided to just do it in sg.
