    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.

    agreed to ahmadbila
    seen many of users having 195 65s and satisfied with their drive
    as u have selected dunlop and yoko so go for new tyre from dunlop sp o1 and yoko db
    if u want to spend money buying new tyre then make sure u get the best otherwise stick to factory ones
    thanks

    the softest that i have found are
    1)Michelin energy(softest+lightweight but expensive)
    2)Dunlop (softer) go for sp sport 01
    3)Yokohoma (Softer) go for A drive AA01
    4)Bridgestone B250,turanza ER370

    [QUOTE=half_lunatic;2266768]@OP: Any update as to which tire you went with? Price?

    Yokohama, 185/65/R15....and am glad the steering response remained as original.....cost 15K (approx.) in exchange of stock tyres.

    Thanks. Have you noticed any difference in mileage? I plan on going with 195/60 or 185/60 for the following reasons:

    Dear my very concern was not to make the steering response slow. So I decided to keep a little variation. You may keep it to 185/65 I recommend.

    My car is new, with stock tyres during initial 300kms in-city drive the fuel indicator was displaying 11-12km/l and is same even after changing the stock tyres. I'm sure this will improve as I adapt a specific drive mode and stay in high gears.

    I can safely suggest you to replace the stock tyres cause alongwith better road grip you'll appreciate that increased tyre size will look good for such a car.

    stock tyres are better, I drove more than 10,000 km on stock tyres and feel no problem. If you want to change so never goes more than 185

    185-65-15R would be wise choice for city, will not effect much on fuel economy but certainly helps in good handling, soft ride and steering,
    my vote for Dunlop lemans
    if not dunlop then yokohama DB series.
    Good Luck

    I got a quote today at Khalid Bin Waleed road in Karachi:
    185/65R15 Yokohama DB Decibel E550 (Japan) @ 6500 and
    185/65R15 Yokohama C-Drive @ 6300
    185/65R15 Yokohama A-Spec (AA01) @ 6200

    I was offered 10000 for my EuroStar Tires.

    I had made up my mind on getting the Yoko Db's, but after doing some searching on PW, it seems its not wise to go for Yokohama as they are smuggled from Afghanistan. Is this true?

    I plan on getting some tires installed tomorrow or Monday InshAllah. If i don't get Yoko's, my next option is Michelin Energy/Primacy. Please Advise.

    Also, please comment on the prices i was quoted. Its my first time ever buying tires in Paksitan so i'm pretty clueless regarding the prices and preferred places to buy.

    Sir City tires also do have Michelins and Continentals.

    205/55 R15 or 185/60 R15 is the best size.

    Specially look for the ConticomfortContact 1 and ConticomfortContact 5 or Michelin XM1+ or Michelin Primacy LC, if they are available.

    I have Michelin Energy in Mercedes and believe me they are ubeatable.

    i own a manual city 2010, black. I bought 185/65 dunlop with r15 light weight rims. the cost was 44000-8000(for stock tires)=36000 pkr from peshawar.

    i've been driving for a week, no change in consumption, the drive is the same. nothing changed except the looks got much better.
