    Default Query about tyres for Honda City '03.(which tyres to opt for?)

    Salam PWers! I am thinking of installing new rims n tyres in my car. The size that i'll b opting for is 185/65/R14. Just need some opinions regarding this size, should i opt for it or stay with the stock size which is 165/80/r13.
    Also, I need some opinions about which tyre brand should i go for? I m thinking of Michelin Energy Saver or Yokohama C-drive/dB/A-drive/A-spec. Kindly post ur feedback about these tyres.

    Regards,
    Faizan

    No-no to Yokohama.

    Honda recommends bridgestone.

    bro take 195/65 r15 in yokohama or michlien
    michlien energy saver is best tyres coz its very economical and last long
    if you want a silent and gr8 tire then go for yokohama DB its the best tire i ever used
    yokohama A300 is also nice tire

    if you want some thing cheaper then go for FEDERAL its good tire with nice price and gr8 patterns

    YOKOHAMA DB 195/65R15 distributor rate is 9500/pair
    MICHLIEN ENERGY SAVER 195/65 R15 DIST rate is 11300/pair
    in FEDERAL 195/65 R15 price range is start from 5300 to 7500/pair distributor................

    Bridgestone is too hard. Drove Yokohama C-drive, ride was really good. Also, drove Michelin energy saver, ride was truly awesome.

    c-drive is good tire but db is the best when u use db tire then you will know
    energy is awsome tire but its expensive if you have budget then forget then other brands and go for michlien.,...........................

    i dont think there is something like Micheline energy saver. there are Micheline energy x-----something dont remember exactly.


    Well getting a tire which one desires is a dream to me.

    i wanted to get tires for my corolla

    1st priority was Continental conti pro contact
    2nd Michelin primacy LC
    3rd Michelin energy
    4th yoko A drive

    But could not find any single in the market so at the end got stupid Dunlop Digi ECO(Note these are good tires i had them before but didnt want to get them again so thats why calling them stupid).

    though tire prices have skyrocketed 3 years back i got digi eco for 3500per piece but now it got the same thing for 4600


    My suggestion is that grab 20 thousand and go to market and get your self an frest tire you can find in the size you are looking for. Coz now if you make up your mind and dont find it you will get disappointed like i was

    do Note that Michelina energy is not that of a good tire.

    one naturally thinks that its expensive so it must be good.
    but i read its reviews they are not that good. but it has one plus point that is it runs more miles then other tires
    RIP

    @adnan, There is simple Michelin energy and then there is Michelin energy saver. For some odd reason, Michelin Energy costs more than Michelin Energy Saver. A frnd got 185/65/R14 Michelin Energy saver for Rs.5200 each and 195/65/R15 michelin Energy for Rs.7200 each. 185/65/R14 Michelin Energy costs around Rs.5700 each in the market.
    I'll probably opt for Yokohama dB. It costs slightly less and is equally good as Michelin Energy Saver or Michelin Energy. I'll b grateful if some1 could tell me the current price of an '09 manufactured Yokohama dB with a size of 185/65/R14.

    dont know the price but will go for yokohama this sunday for my same city and will be replacing 195/65/R14 with 185/65/R14, 195 is a lot of tyre in my opinion on this car, and i dont think that 195/65/R15 can fit in this model without reducing tyre profile because even with R14 there is little or no space between tyre and lower end of coil.

    @ devil
    brother energy and energy saver both is same tyre no difference and everyone know michlien is the best tire in world
    michlien primacy is sporty tire so it come in bigger sizes like 16,17,18 and its expensive too

    The best tyre is yokohama DB
    the price of DB in peshawar for 185/65R14 is 8300/Pair distributor rate and price of 195/65r15 is 8900/pair .....................................

    195/65/R15 can easily be fitted in honda city 03-08 but the ride is really not tht good and u end up ruining the suspension as well. My uncle had these on his Honda city 08, the suspension needs to b redone because of tht.

    @poster.
    I doubt C drives are available in 185 / 65 / r14.
    My vti oriel 2001 is on C-drive 195 / 65 / r15. Indeed a great tire.


    I am great fan of Dunlop Sp 490. Cheap tires, really good performance, Driven 75000kms in my Alto 1000cc when I use to won one. Though I have got gentle foot.


    I just put Sp 490 in my new car along with new alloys (will disclose after some days to you guyz which car is it). Costed me Rs. 4,250 and they are 195 / 60 / R15.
    Believe me they are noiseless and trouble free tires. Try them on my advice. It wont let u down for sure...

    Thanx a lot for the valuable advice. I will surely check them out. My uncle recently got 185/65/R14 C-drive for his honda city from Saif Traders. It costed him Rs. 4400 each. Now i m confused between Yokohama C-drive and DNA dB. Michelin energy is out of question now since it's very expensive.

    well I'm not much of a "tyre" specialist....

    I've been using General EuroGlide tyres on my 86 Galant (185/65R/13) since july 2008 and they've been running absolutely fine....not a single puncture to date....
