    brother depends on ur use and liking, stock tires are not bad at all but not good either if u have a lot of long route driving then i think u should change them other wise for normal use tires are fine, in case u want to change them then tire+wheels ll cost u from 30 to 50 k.

    Dani,
    You are asking too much for your car. Market price for it is not more than 11.75K and i have already quoted 11.90K. You will not get more than this for your ride
    Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

    Do not go for bigger tyres and rims, they change is going to affect your ABS which is caliberated for the stock size. If you want to go for Japanese tyres and rims go for the same size, it would not alter the stability and other functions of your car. Eurostar tyres are especially made for Pakistani road and weather condition and they are long lasting.

    Waisy bhee 19-20 ka difference hota hai. What is the use of wasting so much money on looks and just wrong sized wheels? Keep your new car stock and you will not face any issues for a long time.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    irfan what you are saying doesnt feel right. Why fail a tyre just becasue it is made in pakistan. Yes Eurostar is a genral tyre brand but it was deveopled through two years oftesting in Japan and Europe and the reviews are also good you just have to read the posts above. Keep an ope mind and show some national pride.

    @Adnant

    I will speak of my experience since I was very recently having the same car (manual though)

    It will make your ride nice (and a bit safer) if you go for good tyres and alloys. I enjoyed it.

    I will strongly recommend against changing rim size or for that matter tyre size. It is going to affect your vehicle's setup as well as consumption.

    However, you will face difficulty in finding the same size tyre from a reputable manufacturer (in case of CITY). In that case you should settle for 180-65R15 or 180-60R15.

    This is how my car looked like

    Being an ex-owner of City '10 I would suggest you to replace your stock tires with 185 65 R15 of good brand (preferably yokohama/Michelin) while keeping the original rims... imo original wheel caps look just fine... no need to shed some extra bucks for the rims.
    You can use the same amount of 20 - 30K to fuel your car for almost a year or more.

    Rest is your choice. if you want to improve the looks of your car. go ahead.

    I could find only dunlop LM702 in 185/65 R15 size, where i can find michilin or yokohama in 185/65 R15 or 185/60/R15 ? please tell me shop name and location.

    also see my below post on some other thread help me if you can..

    quote"

    i need ur advice. recommended size is 175/65 R15, i cud not find any imported tire in this size. nearest available sizes are 185/65 R15(only dunlop lm702 i could find), 185/60 R15(bridgestone AR10) and 195/65 R15(mostly recommended by sellers).For recommended size 175/65 R15 , using aspect ration 65 and width 175, height of the tire is 113.75 mm.
    Using 185/65 R15 tyre, height is 120 mm,
    using 195/65 R15 tyre, height is 126mm, using 185/60 R15 tyre height is 111 mm (nearest to the honda recommended tire height i.e. 113.75 mm).
    Now as per my research , changing the dia of the tire leads to wrong reading of speed on speedp meter. ABS uses the speed of the car for calculation. now if tire dia is increased (if i uses 195/65 R15 as it is sold for city 2010/11), speedometer will read less speed than actual which will ultimaterly affect the EMC calculation for ABS. In my point of view 185/60 R15 tyre is nearest to the recommend 175/65 R15. Please advise what should i do, I am realy confused.Also I have done a thorough survey of johar town faisal town and DHA market and I cud find that date on tyre is tampered(my opinion, no offense please). Please advise me correct tyre size for city 2011 "
