    I would like kindly to check which better the best tires I can use for my honda city model 2004 where I am living in Beirut, Lebanon and we have a cold tempreture on winter and hot climate on summer. Also our roads arent all soft and well done. Please advice me so I do not have problems on mechanical issue or I suffer from sliding while raining.

    Sirs 185/70 R13 is the best size for bumpy roads and also for long life of tires.

    For grip and braking and sporty performance 205/50 R15,

    Continental Comfort and Contact are best.

    Second comes Michelin Energy and Energy saver.

    Bridgestone Turanza AR 10 are also good.

    I have been using 185/65/R14 in my city idsi. IMHO, they look great and perform as good as 185/70/R13 in terms of comfort. The economy remains the same as the stock size of 165/80/R13. And the grip has increased significantly. R13s don't look good on a sedan of this size.
    Try to find light-weight rims in R14 with 185/65/R14 tyres.

    You should go for All season tyres, if there is no snow then go for Newly launched Michelin product XM2 Energy. It is new product designed on new technology iron flex by Michelin equally suited for good and bad road.

    I don't agree with you the grip will be same as both tyres 185/65r14 and 185/70r13 have same contact patch i.e 185, Yes the handling with 185/65R14 will be better but Comfort will be better with 185/70R13. My advice is to keep OE wheels and go for 185/70r13.

    read the comment carefully, i was addressing the comparison of stock size 165/80/r13 with 185/65/r14 while commenting on the grip part.
    Abt the comfort, there is no significant difference in comfort when comparing 185/70/R13 and 185/65/R14. In fact, light weight R14s will be more comfortable in comparison to those heavy r13 stock rims.
