190/50 15 Tyre Review Highlights

Toyo R888 R rated 97% while driving a Alfa Romeo
Driving on track for 125 spirited miles
Fitted these on my 2nd Alfa 155 for a trackday, the dry grip they provide is by any means outstanding, the cornering speeds the car reached were almost on the edge of being described as ridiculous! They seem to be gripping quite well too on wet roads I must say. Up to about 80-90 km/h they are quite but at higher speeds they make some considerable noise.

They did wear very little after a total of 30 laps, "pedal to the metal" action, probably because I had insisted on aligning the wheels as perfectly as possible.

Will be using them again on the next trackday, they can cope with at least as many laps again for sure.

GT Radial CHAMPIRO SX2 rated 90% while driving a Honda Fit (Jazz)
Driving on a combination of roads for 8500 spirited miles
Loving using this tyres.. Using as daily cars in weekdays, and using it for a drag race car in weekend,, always gives the best performance.. In dry condition the grip is amazing.. Make you feel brave for a late braking near the chicane of circuit..

Michelin Pilot Exalto rated 90% while driving a Mazda MX5
Driving on mostly country roads for 1500 spirited miles
Put these on our MX5 and can't believe how good they are. We bought the car with a mix of cheap tyres on 14's, and I put the correct wheels on (15") and fitted these tyres at the same time. Can't believe how chuckable and sure footed it is now, having difficulty in getting the rears unstuck even on cold and damp roads. Will be putting these on my daily driver as soon as the current tyres are down to 3mm.

Yokohama BluEarth AE01 rated 86% while driving a Volkswagen Caddy
Driving on mostly motorways for 35000 average miles
I do around 30k a year in my small van and these tyres have been a blessing. I'm on my 3rd front pair now and will continue to fit them while they are available. They last, on average, 2-3k longer than previous Kuhmo or Falken tyres. Wet grip is great although the dry grip does not feel quite so steady under very heavy braking but it is still more than acceptable. Fantastic branded tyre at almost budget prices! Very quiet compared to previous tyres also.

Barum Bravuris 2 rated 81% while driving a Volkswagen Golf Mk3 VR6
Driving on a combination of roads for 7000 spirited miles
Bought to replace worn Pilot Exaltos as I was on a budget. Once they had a few hundred miles on them and the initial greasy feel of new tyres had gone they perfomed very well. They are MUCH quieter that the pilots, although the pilots were worn and worn tyres can get louder. They squeel sooner than the pilots but outright dry grip is only very slightly lower, if at all. Wet grip is great both under braking, you have to really try to get the ABS to come on, and cornering. Both Dry and Wet this is a prdictable and progressive tyre with good feed back and a quiet comfortable ride. They are wearing reasonably well so far with 7000 miles on them and about 50% wear on the fronts having been driven quite hard on a 170hp front drive car. But at the price if they only last 10000 then still a bargin. If you dont mind not having, or paying for, a premium name then these are great (and they are owned by Continental)

Toyo R888 rated 80% while driving a Suzuki swift sport
Driving on track for 10000 spirited miles
Excellent value for money. In that sense maybe the best TD tire around.

A bit sensitive to pressure per external temperature; one must be very careful on adjusting the pressure in order for them to work properly, but if done correctly they stick like gum and wear not that easy. Still, tire wear is more than other semis, but this is due to the soft compound (all the compounds of 888 are softer than stated) and this makes it easier to heat and also drive daily on normal road.

Definitely my one and only choice on Track Day rubber.

Nankang NS2 rated 77% while driving a Renault Cilo 1.2 Extreme
Driving on mostly town for 1000 average miles
These tyres were on a set of Alloys I purchased, I was a little worried as I've never heard of them but they are much better than the ones which I replaced (Avons with 3-4mm tread on the front and Dunlops 4-5mm on the back), they are slightly wider than the ones they replaced so this may be part of the reason. Car certainly feels better into corners, can't go wrong if you are on a tight budget.

Yokohama Parada Spec 2 rated 76% while driving a Mitsubishi mirage cyborg r
Driving on a combination of roads for 30000 average miles
the best budget tyre ever....using it on 95' proton compact (same chasis as mirage cyborg on mivec version)

size 195/50-15

sub MYR200 price (around US$65)...this is the best tyre with full of grip be it shine or rain....

running on -ve1.0 camber setup with slight over-inflated pressure to cope with soft sidewall....

if anyone looking for better gripping tyre than this, have to resort for UHP/semis tyre which is cost more than MYR250 (+- US$85).....

the only complain is loud humming noise and the soft sidewall....but for me the advantage of this tyre outweight those drawback....

since my car was FWD it took around 40,000kms to finish....but on the rear even after 100,000kms still got 70-80% of threads left....
