These are wishbones with adjustable camber. What car are you driving? double wishbones are rare nowadays given the cost of building a car with it?

which model?

595 don't know which man, v thread I think..

 

My best bet is still the Goodyear Eagle F1 Made in Germany.

 

value for money and good dry / wet grip

for local use overkill? :p I'm looking more at 2nd hand tyres :( I think the Eagle f1 are like $127/pc ..

I am not sure if your suspension geometry is a double wishbone set up. If it is not, then you cannot change it into a double wishbone. But if it is, you have a lot of camber to play with this set. Excellent piece of toy.

595 evo, evo around 10 -20 bucks more depending on shops. if u finding 2nd hand tires, can go to opp geylang police station "swee hong" there got a sell 2nd tires. Price is dirt cheap but check carefully before purchasing. The salesman is not really that type of 100% honest type, so better dun anyhow kena smoke by him :lol:

I went there before already, no 2nd hand tyres for my 16" :(

The fella tried to sell me 1st hand Eagle F1s and the other Federal tyre which I forgot the name. Think "LS 2000" or what.. He said Eagle f1s are noisier than Federal and Federal made in Japan while the other is not, hmm :nono:

160 sounds ok for 4 pcs, or u can take throttle rims + tyres it really sounds cheap for 18".

 

But u got check carefully for uneven wear (camber wear), inner punture etc?

Your picture shows a double wishbone assembly. You can opt to replace only the bushes. But... in condition that the component was not damaged by the accident.

But if it is damaged, you might as well adopt Kenny's suggest to replace it into an adjustable wishbone assembly.

But since your car is a double wishbone assembly, it becomes very sensitive to camber changes especially with the replacement of shock absorbers. The ones with ride height adjustability. Every movement on the ride height can result to a change in camber. Do take note.

Origin? lol :lol: How many products today in the market can be distinguished as a pure product of the represeting country.

 

Do you know cars can be Thai built with Japanese and Chinese crafted components? And these components can be fabricated in Vietnam?

 

Or when a German electrical component for automotive manufacturer buys their raw materials from Ukraine, China and maybe now US? since the US exchange rate is so weak. Then sell it off as made in Germany.

Just enjoy the quality of the product. Nevermind where it came from. I am going for Hankook RS2. Excellent price. I am not surprised to find French steel cords inside the Korean fabricated tyre. So now it's French or Korean?

That depends on where its last Manufactured ;) Just like you won't like your Hankook Rs2 to be manufactured from PRC :angel:

 

taiwan, but that doesn't really matters.

 

the 160 u saw is from mcf?

from LMC. :thumb:

I tried the Hankook Ventus RS2 for the track. Excellent! And the price was cheap!

After that, I changed into the Hankook Ventus Prime for the highway. good too! And cheap! These Y and W graded tyres are going at unbelievably low prices. hahaha.
