Michelin PS3 R17 215 vs R17 205

It is time to change new shoes for my car again with 83,000km displayed on odometer. Though the old tyre (Michelin Pilot Sport 3 205/50 R17 89W) seems able to continue for more mileage from outlook, but i can feel loosing grips of tyre while driving which creates slight lack-of-confident while taking corners. In addition, road noise from front wheel and bumpiness of the car has increased obviously.

Thought of trying ContiSportContact series from Continental tyres, but too bad there are no stock available, so took new set of Michelin Pilot Sport 3 (215/45 R17 91V) instead. Image above shows different sizes of Michelin PS3 (215/45 R17 91V) on the left with Michelin PS3 (205/50 ZR17 89W) at right.

    Had a chance to attend FHA 2014 (Food & Hotel Asia) at Singapore EXPO, instead of using DSLR to shoot. Brought out my Redmi to test on camera capability under challenging lightning (spotlights, different light colours, etc) environment on my journey to the exhibition.


    Redmi comes with 8 Megapixel, 1.4ųm sensor, f/2.2 aperture, 28mm wide angle lens, five plastic lens and a 1080p video recording. It is not great but with the help of MIUI, operation is smooth and result is above average. As photo above, exposure of headlight is under control, details such as “Exit” word that still looks sharp and readable.
