Can I give him your reference for the discount instead?

can i ask a question?? What is the cheapest performance tires in the market? something priced cheap, grippy yet durable.. I have bought a pair of nittos for my coupe and they are priced 250 each and im happy cuz their cheap but are they really good gripping tires??
i have a set of good years in the back so i cannot tell how the car's handling changed from before as i had michelins and replaced them with nittos.. (i dont intend to confuse people here).

There is a Hankook tire center in Al Quoz but I'm not sure as to where exactly. GTtwincam must know.

Hankook Al-Qouz
043388346
They are located in Al-Qouz somewhere parallel to SZR between interchange 3 and 3.5, no exactly sure though!

Bump.

The time has come to change my tyres, and after buying my Enkeis, I require one of the following choices (4 of each), I currently have Bridgestone Potenza GIII 205/50R16 87V, therefore:

1) 16" 205/50R16

or

2) 16" 205/55R16 <- these aren't low profile, correct? I prefer comfort and grip over style.

And I also require 4 tyres for our family Infiniti FX35 2008, stock rims. I need to confirm the exact specs, but off the top of your head, how much would they cost? I think they're staggered according to some websites, but need to confirm with my brother.

I absolutely love my Bridgestones, but they'll cost a bomb if I bought them new. I need something grippy, comfortable, with less road noise. They don't need to be low profile, hell, I prefer if they're not!

Hankook place I know off:

From Shk Zayed road Dubai to AUH, take left at Interchange 4. Drive straight to the next roundabout and make u turn. You will see Hankook before the gas station.

BTW Michelin FTMFW

Michelin tires are great but heavy on the wallet.
205/50s have a lower profile than the 55s.

Try Goodyear, Hankook or Dunlop.

I'm assuming because no one's mentioned Kumho, Nitto, Toyos or Hankook, they're not grippy or less noisy?

Kumhos get a bit noisy over time.
Nittos are great but not in the size you want.
Toyos/Falken = meh

I mentioned Hankook.

Thats not the actual Hankook Dealer, just some overpriced irani tyre shop.

The actual Hankook dealer is near the 3rd interchnage on SZR. When going towards Abu Dhabi on SZR, get onto the third interchange and turn left towards AL- Qouz industial area, then from the signal(its also a T-Junction) turn left, then take the first right turn, and then again the first right turn, It'll be on your left side.
