    Default City's Bumpy Ride

    I have a Honda City 2008 Manual with 13 inch 185 yokohama tyres.


    The ride is very bumpy on even slightly rough roads.


    Any suggestions???

    @blindman watching.. Are you surprised that you vehicle has started to rattle?? look at the tyres and their specifications.. these tyres are NOT designed for ur City.

    2. The wheels u r using do not corrobrate with manufacturer specifications and the tyres are not only low profile.. they are really large..

    pretty soon, not only would u have to worry about rattles from any nook and cranny of ur car but also would have major suspension and other other drive train related mechanical problems..

    can u pronounce.... BIG BUCK REPAIRS ..

    ^^I am also using the same setup in my city 215/45/r17 91w.
    Considering that the rims are 17's the profile is not that low.

    ^^ do you use CNG ?
    Btw u can eliminate the problem completely by using some sort of packing in the rear shocks, but the ride height will become high.
