Most Malaysians only look at monthly finance repayment figures when it comes to purchasing a new car. Some might enquire about servicing figures but there are a few other items that make up the running cost of the car.

So how much does it actually cost to keep a car running? Today, let’s find out the cost of replacing four tyres for a 2014 Peugeot 408 Turbo via the MisterTyre app.


The car

There’s no denying that the Peugeot 408 Turbo is a good-looking car, especially if you opt for the Griffe bodykit and rims package. It looks almost like a touring race car!

Also, it has a very high safety rating and safe handling, which makes it an excellent choice for those who want a car that offers a safe and engaging ride.


What does the size mean?

The optional tyres are much bigger at 225/45/17 – 225 is the width of the tyre in millimetres, 17 denotes the diameter of the tyre in inches and 45 means the tyre’s sidewall is 45% of the width of the tyre.


Options on MisterTyre

Prices range from RM200 to RM800, depending on brand.


Our Choice

For a turbocharged front-wheel drive car, grip is very important. So is durability, since the torque will wear out the tyre at a faster rate.

The Hankook Ventus V12 features a high threadwear grade to last longer but is soft enough to provide a good and quiet ride. It also offers ample grip for high-speed cornering.


Total Sum

Costing RM343 per tyre, a set of four Hankook V12 tyres amounts to RM1,454.32 after GST including alignment and balancing. The best part is, with MisterTyre, you can have the tyres installed at a location of your choice.
