dalephee Agree wif you Char.. 20k wont botak unless u take hard corners.. normally stock tires can last maybe up to 65k+\-
correct me if i'm wrong..
30 May 2008

lchuanglr actually, RainX comes in many forms. there's one that is like wet wipes, and there's another that is a liquid that you use as a windscreen washer fluid. you can check out the NTUC at AMK Hub.
