Driving Directions to Klang for Cheap Tyres

It is now probably well known that Klang sells the cheapest tyres anywhere in Malaysia. Not many people know why Klang tyre shops are able to sell their goods so cheaply. From what I’ve heard, it’s probably because of the close proximity to Port Klang where tyres are offloaded from ships and immediately end up in their store. That cuts out the middleman and transportation cost – therefore, the much cheaper tyres.

How much cheaper, you ask. Take an example of my tyres. I bought the Michelin XM1 205/65/R15 at RM228 each. Compared the the same tyre in Kuala Lumpur or Petaling Jaya, it can be anywhere between RM260 and RM280. The price difference of changing just one piece of tyre justifies the trip down to Klang. Since I change my tyres in either Hing Leong a.k.a Hin Leong and Hock Li, I’ll provide the driving directions there.

  1. Start off at Federal Highway driving towards Subang, Shah Alam or Klang
  2. You will come to a toll that costs you RM1.10. Pay it and don’t ask for a discount.
  3. Drive on and you will reach another toll that costs RM1.00
  4. After paying the toll, you can see a flyover in front of you. Don’t take that flyover. Keep left and ease off the road. You will come to a junction with a set of traffic lights.
  5. Turn right at the traffic light junction and drive on. You will notice Jaya Jusco on your left.
  6. You will come to a third toll. Pay the attendant RM0.60
  7. After the toll, keep right and drive towards Kapar. Drive on until you reach a junction with traffic lights.
  8. Turn left at the traffic lights and look out for Caltex petrol station on your left.
  9. Turn left into the row of shops just after Caltex.
  10. You are now in front of Hing Leong and Hock Li is just beside. With 2 shops next to each other, it’ll probably bring down the prices more.
