These high performance tires might not carry size for 14"... not to mention 15"

either that, or they don't carry anything lower than 50 series

In Brunei, everything is import, their import tax is much lower than M'sia.

for M'sia. they put a high % on imported items. cos, they want M'sia made product to be cheaper...

So, consumer who goes for cheap items, will buy M'sia products due to $ contraint.

Anyone know where got sell Falken ZE326 / ZE329 / ZE912 for 185/65/R14 in Brunei? I prefer Nippon one. Not Indon.

The shop at Sg Liang used to have ZE326 (Nippon) for B$75/each. Now the shop only have SN816. ZE326 no stock liao...

ZE-512 is directional. Do you remember which shop in Piasau? Perhaps I can check if it has what I want...

i'm bought mine in kch for about RM220/piece, 205/55/R15. still using it right now, worth every cent of it. compared to those local brands (silverstone, dunlop, sime), falken is way ahead of the league. very grippy, comfortable ride, not tat bouncy, way above standards for normal on d road driving. for racing, u shud go for falken azeenis (not sure i spelt that correctly). But for normal usage, falken ziex is worth the buy. but for miri, i suggest u go to brunei and buy, a lot cheaper i think.
