    Default What are the recommended tyres for City 09?

    I want to replace the crappy stock tyres of my City '09. What size and brand should I go for? I'll be keeping the stock rims though as I do not want to mess up the fuel mileage. Your help in this regard would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Yokohama Aspec are too ordinary, go for A Drive instead, or even DB DNA.

    What a coincidence! An acquaintance of mine also recommended me A drive. I guess the vote's for the Yokohama then! What's the size of your wheels and how much did they cost?

    Id still say consult some more PWers or talk to some tyre dealers.

    I paid 5500/each for 195/55/15 85V manufactured 1609 - bought from Melody. However, this set of this size was the last available, and Im not sure if he had 195/60. Though I am very certain you can get 195/60 from somewhere, either in Blue Area or in Melody.

    Glad I could be of help. Wish you the best!

    And if you have any questions or anything you want to discuss, emailing me is probably better as I dont visit PW that much these days.

    It was great talking to you,

    Well I never drive above 75. I'm getting good mileage but the tyres make noise and the brakes-even with the abs- are a tad slippery.

    @255
    Toyota gave 175 width tyres for its XLi 2001-8 model. Are you suggesting its an appropriate size? :s

    And what about the 134hp 171 Nm 1.8L Altis - with (stock) 185/65/14 tyres...is this what you recommend the appropriate size for a car as such? :s :|

    "They gave that for a reason" - the only reason was to be cheap and save money (N)

    Hi, congragulation on this purchase. I suggust you to just go for 195/60/15, as I m driving my City 09 since March 09 with these Dunlop tyres. Already driven 20000 kms with no problem at all, fuel economy road handliing both are excellent. 205 tyres are too wide for the original rims and not look good with this car.
    LOVE THE NATURE.

    IF U LOVE YOUR CAR THEN DONT BUY DUNLOP ANY TIRE COZ DUNLOP DONESNT HAVE ANY AUTHORIZED DEARLER IN PAKISTAN DUNLOP SALE IS OPEN EVERYONE CAN BRING DUNLOP AND NOWADAYS ALL DUNLOP IS COMMING FROM CHINA AND KOREA


    NEW CITY TYRE SIZE IS VERY DIFFERENT 175/65R15


    SO 195/60R15 IS THE BEST SIZE FOR NEW CITY


    YOU CAN BUY YOKOHAMA DB501 DNA. ITS THE BEST TIRE IN MARKET NOWDAYS WITH THE PRICE OF 9900/PAIR FROM AUTHORIZED DEALER. IT IS VERY STONG AND COMFORTABLE TIRE EVER PRODUCE BY YOKOHAMA COMPANY


    YOU CAN ALSO GET MICHLEIN ENERGY SAVER ITS VERY SOFT TIRE WITH VERY LESS FUEL CONSUMPTION....................................... .......

    Many thanks for the suggestions. I guess 9900 Rs is way out of my reach. Is there any cheaper option in the 195-60/R15? Also what are your thoughts on 185-65-R15? My preference is fuel economy and and somewhat acceptable road grip. Still have 5 days to go before I venture out to buy the tyres.

    He was saying 9900 for a pair, that is 4950 each tyre!

    And 185/65/15 would be better fuel economy, dont know how much though. But if fuel efficiency is your #1 priority, then 185/60 (availability unknown) is the best, and then 185/65, which is very widely available.
