I had couple of bad experiences running on the normal Falken Ziex 522 tires. Spun off twice at tight corners as the grip was very poor. Definitely not suitable for Black Mamba. So I decided to sell it off at a very good price and bought the Goodyear Eagle RS Sport for the replacement. And I've been smiling ever since....

1. Tires are very sticky due to its semi-slick compound and the performance on wet road is also surprisingly good. Now I have no second thoughts on attacking corners as it really grips hard, eventhough you're on the verge of understeering. LOL. I have tried numerous other high performance street tires before and this RS Sport will be on top of my two other favourites, Yokohama Advan Neova AD07 and Bridgestone Potenza RE01-R.
2. The downside of using this tires after 2 weeks is that the whining sound generated above 80kmh is pretty loud, just like of those real semi-slicks. And you might wanna let go the throttle if you see a puddle of water in front of you..
3. Costs: RM450/piece
4. Where: Various tire suppliers
