my advice is dun save on tyres and brakes, cos tyres are the only point of contact between the road and your ride and good brakes prevents u from kissing other vehicles and the road.

Mech advise this michelin firepower one. It's alrdy above average for tires.

 

Yep I changed brake pump with bleeding of brake fluid leh. I dun save on tires/chain/brakes.

 

It's jus u dun need to over spend. No need get track standard like pilot power.

haha, the issue is this firepower is not in the michelin tyre lineup, i googled it cannot find. pilot power is only so so tire below $200 for a pair. slippery during wet conditions.
