    Default Tire Recommendation for City (2010)

    Guys,

    Need a replacement for stock tires - General 175/65/R15 - for the new Honda City (2010), Manual Transmission.

    I need to know the best brand details along with suggestions on size enhancements. e.g. DUNLOP SP3000, 185/65/R15.

    Emphasis be put on "ideal size" for the tyres. Price range idea would be great to know.

    Thanks for quick feedback.

    I am using Yokohama C Drive 195/60/R15, and so far I am very satisfied with the performance (softness, road grip, low noise, looks, tread etc).
    Having a little trade-off with mileage and soft-steering though

    whatever you get, make sure its exactly the stock size,
    otherwise you will be compensated for fuel average and stiff ride.

    I've asked Honda dealers and they suggested a max. size of 185/65/R15 as a replacement of the stock tyres. I even notice many Honda City upgraded either to 185/65/15 or in rear cases to 195/65/15.

    Let me know, what major difference it's gonna bring in going for 185/65.... Else I'd stick to stock size!

    I personally don't think transition from 175 to 185 is even noticeable - does it really ???

    Suggestions please.....

    Do NOT stick to the stock size... its too small for a car of this size and capability... go for atleast 185 or better 195, sure u wud have to sacrifice a little bit of fuel economy, but would u like to take any risk just to save a few rupees per day??

    trust me, braking (even with ABS) and stability sucks with 175 sized tyre... just icreasing the width of tyre wudnt harm the suspension at all... if u increase the rim size, then its gonna harm the suspension... but even 1inch rim size increment wont do any hard to suspension for a long time...

    I wanted to go for Yokohamas 195/60/15 but couldn't find any recently manufactured ones (i.e. 2009 and 2010) at a number of shops that I visited. Finally got 195/65/15 which are about 3% off. The fuel economy that I get is 10.3 kpl, and this is on an automatic with mostly city driving.

    Can't complain about the drive or braking; it seems decent to me then again I'm not particularly a racer/ricer so won't know the difference anyway.

    @ N4Nomi:

    I guess bridgestone is more smuggled available then any other brand.


    Yokohama's are good and is among one of my preferred brands.

    I don't opt to go for an extended variation....from 175/65...to...195/65.

    I will keep it to 185/65/15 (Honda even recommend this).
    BTW, City steering response even in stock tyres is not such a breeze as compared to Corolla and I don't want to experiment further with it.

    Suggest specific brands to help my purchase, price idea would be great !

    I had the same problem of tyre selection and opted for Michelin energy 195 65 R15.other brands dunlop eco,sp and yoko db are good too but considering the softness and light weight of michelin i got them.
    advantages are enhanced grip,braking and handling with negligible reduction in fuel economy
    go for michelin energy if u can spend more (strongly recommended)
    otherwise dunlop eco and yoko db are good too in lower price tag
    Thanks

    Well Bro Indeed Bridgestone is coming in smuggling but comapany tyre with full warrenty is available with me, Michelin energy is good but 195/65 R 15 is not too good for your car, and if you are going in 195.65r15 not tyre is better than Continental
    Well Yokohama with company warranty is available with me Rates are for imported tires

    Yokohama 185 X 65 R 15 AA01 (Same is coming as OE in New Cultus) Rs:5850


    I wont advice you for Dunlop, coz it has shoulder separation problems

    when company recomend 175 so 175 performs good. on international websites they are using 175 and 185 both, but in asia 175 max: , provides fuel economy.

    Wish, when such leading brands releases a slashed version of an international car, they shall provide "factory" upgrades tested to comply with car specifications rather than, consumers experimenting on their own.

    I'm almost decided on the following options....

    -Yokohama
    -Dunlop

    Michelin commonly available size of 195/65 is not preferred and is on an expensive side.
