    Default Tyres new honda city

    I just got my new honda city. My mechanic says that General tyres with it are poor in terms of road grip and should be replaced immediately. Friends please advise if he is right? If so what is the brand that I should have? Thanx

    In the market you will see alot of tyre companies and almost all of them will have tyres for your needs.

    you have to decide the best tyres for you on the folowing conditions:

    1) What type of driving you do? Normal/ aggressive, country/city, gravel/proper roads.

    2) what type of tyres are you looking for i.e. Touring / Performace.

    3) What weather conditions you normally drive in? dry/wet

    4) what type of handling you are after in dry and wet conditions?

    5) How often you a re planing to change your tyres? (Touring tyres tend to last longer than performance tyres because touring tyres use a bit hard compound as where as performance tyres use soft).

    6) Are you worried about road noise/tyre noise while driving? Performance tyres normally have a bit more road noise.

    7) How much you are willing to spend on tyres? ( e.g. for same spec tyres General=100 , yoko/dunlop=200 , perilli=400+ etc.)


    answer the above questions and you will get your self right tyres

    Dude! Ive been through that! Listen - If u drive even slightly spiritedly, u need to replace ur tyres ASAP.

    Since the car is so tall (high), it needs fatter tyres. If u can afford to go fer rims, go fer preferibly 15" - they cost more $$$ than 14" but r worth in terms of looks & performance although they r kinda hard on the suspension.

    But if u plan to change tyres do it ASAP as long as the tyres r new other wise ull loose money at the tyre shop fer these tyres.

    Adios.
