    Default Please Help Me Please!!! Tyre Size of Honda City

    I just want to ask you people which tyre size is best for Honda City Idsi 2008. Currently i m using 195/60/R15 Yoko. But its fuel consumption is increased alot. Please help me and tell me what would be the best rim and tyre size as well as tell me which company's tyres are more gripy.... The stock size was 165/80/R13. I have also heard by many people that 185/70/R13 and 165/80/R13 are same in diameter.

    Please friends help me............................. i m waiting for your experienced replies. And tell me how much your Idsi is giving you in 1 litre? Mine is giving me 9-10 km in litre with a smooth and carefull drive under 2.5 rpm

    Don't deviate from the stock size if you want economy..especially with honda city 2008. Because being it the ugliest car around, there's no use of sporting it up. The only good thing about that car is its economy - and if its not even giving you an economic fuel consumption, the whole idea of keeping a city seems baseless.

    I had stock tyres in my ex-city 2006 and it gave me upto 16kmpl.

    ^ according to my info the stock size is 165/80/13
    but isnt it way to small for a city?
    I mean Im currently running 165/70/12 on my khyber and the car in discussion is a City
    I agree that the I.DSI was designed for better fuel consumption but still we should consider safety first rather than economy?
    As we all know that the better the grip the lesser the braking distance
    what do you say bro?

    You're quite correct. I guess the poster has to choose between economy and safety then. (though it seems pretty funny talking about safety in a car without abs and airbags, with rolling-over probability of 80% or more imho) ))))

    I suggest you stick to stock size, buy some nice grippy tyres and drive carefully.

    @Poster
    I upgraded from 145/80/12 to 165/70/12 on my khyber
    and the reason for this upgrade was to achieve a better grip as my dad had an accident and the main reason were the tyres as 145 is quite a thin tyre for khyber
    now here is the difference
    the total diameter of the wheel (the rim+ the rubber part) is the same as it was before (a negligible difference of 0.5mm has occured) and it resulted in better braking

    Im not sure but I think that the same must be the case with 165/80/R13 and 185/70/R13

    I would suggest you to go for 185/70/13 as it will not affect your fuel economy that much and will obviously result in better braking


    Btw here is how you differenciate it
    I hope you get the idea


    145/80/R12


    Please Help Me Please!!! Tyre Size of Honda City -41691

    Please Help Me Please!!! Tyre Size of Honda City -41692





    165/70/R12




    Please Help Me Please!!! Tyre Size of Honda City -41693 Please Help Me Please!!! Tyre Size of Honda City -41694

    Keeping in mind the above example,
    If you upgrade from 165/80/13 to 185/70/13 then the dia i-e the red arrow will remain the same
    and as Rim size i-e 13" will also be retained so the blue length will also remain same

    the thing that will change will be the width i-e highlighted with the green arrow


    I hope now the difference will be clear between the two sizes

    195/60/15 is 4% larger in circumference than 165/80/13,

    hence the speed and distance covered shown in speedo and odo meter is 4% less then actual,

    195/55/15 is the correct size.

    i get 11-12kmpl from idsi

    i have a city and i have been through the tyre changing process 3 times until now.way i have found is that the best size for honda city idsi is 185.65.r14. the perfect balance between economy and grip.i have driven my car on the stock size tyres, nd honestly, i felt like i was driving a boat.it was just sooo damn unstable.then i jumped to 195/60/r14.the difference was HUGE... sooo much grip that i could hardly make the front wheels spin.i used to love that size.but the problem was the drop in performance and fuel economy. so now i got my car 185.65.r14 sized tyre.nd they r perfectly balanced. they give me enough grip to be confident and the fuel economy which is healthy for the pocket

    and NEVER think that the stock size is perfect for the car (except few cars, like new swift)
    the thing is that the design and dynamics of the car were not made ny pakistani engineers working at indus or honda atlas, design etc was made by japanese, and they know exactly what size rims n tyres shud b used in the car according to weight,size and speed of a car.

    the pakistani assembelers r just ripping off ppl by putting in smaller size low quality tyres n to convince ppl on them,they say we r adjusting it according to pakistani roads... no they are not!!!

    so, do change ur cars' tyres for ur own safety.
