    185/65/R14 is the ideal tyre size for 06-08 city. Going any bigger would result in extra stress being put on the suspension n increased fuel consumption. u can also opt for either 185/70/r14 for a slightly more comfortable ride or 195/65/r14 for a slightly more grip. dnt opt 195/70/r14.

    ^ agreed
    though its reccomended size is 165/R13 but 185/R13 or R14 works fine
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    honda recommends 165/80/R13. Moving from 165/80/R13 to 185/65/R14 keeps the overall diameter of the wheel same hence no extra stress is put on the suspension

    There is not much difference in the above mentioned sizes. If u opt for 185/70/r14, u'll b increasing the overall diameter of the wheel and hence the speedometer will give slightly inaccurate speed readings.

    keep the stock wheels (rims) and get 185/70 R13 Yokohama A.drive best tyre for City, this tyre is a class above Yoko Aspec A 300 and much better than dunlop eco or bridgestone b70 or potenza ae714 available in this size. Yoko A.drive costs around Rs.4400 a piece on while dunlop eco and yoko aspec are around 3500-3700 a piece. Yokohama A.drive is a soft yet very grippy tyre it has got wet as well as dry grip. Yoko Aspec is a soft tyre as well but not good when it comes to handling/grip and gets very hard as it ages same goes for dunlop eco as well.

    If you are going to change the wheels (rims) to 14" then the tyre size should be either 185/65 R14 or 195/60 R14 and i would suggest go for Yokohama C.drive its a better version of Yoko A.drive.

    If you are going for 15" wheels then the tyre size should be 195/55 R15 or 185/60 R15 in this size yokohama S.drive or Bridgestone potenza GIII (very hard to find these days) are the best options but I would prefer S.drive over GIII myself.
