Hi there, would like to seek recommendations for repair/replacement of my Mazda 3 aircon plastic. As per the attached photos, the plastic part of the aircon vent is somewhat messed up. The swirls are hard and can’t seem to be scratched/removed. Thanks in advance!

Shuttle is = Jazz/Fit doing squats with the butt protruding at maximum. I believe the internals are the same.

Hi guys, noticed Hawk tayar seems to be the go to place for tyres for most people here.

Just wanted to seek your opinion on a suzuki swift with about 1year plus COE left, rear tyres require replacing. Not intending to renew COE.

Should I just change to a second hand 15" tyre in SG or would the prices at Hawk tayar still be more worth it? And if Hawk tayar is the more cost effective option, whats the ball park price for a pair of 15" tyres at Hawk tayar?

Thanks in advance for helping a noob here.

Personally, if it was me, 1 year+ left and since I don't drive 0-100 in 5 seconds, I would just look for 2nd hand tyres on Carousell.

My opinion is to go for 2nd hand. I’d look out for the following

1) make sure tyres are still kinda “fresh” in terms of manufacturing date and also there are sufficient depth to last for 1 year.
2) what is the kind of front tyres u r using. Try to find matching kind. For example if front tyres r sports tyres but back tyres r comfort tyres, it won’t gel well.

Once you use different tyres, you will need to be aware of the limitations. Hence always follow the 2 second rule and avoid cornering hard especially on rainy days.

I could head for a safer side, go for new ones rather than 2nd hand. 15" type would cost you not more than $300/4pcs.
First you have to firm up the brand and budget.
