    tyres problem i.e due to wider size 195, because of changing tyres suspension got harder basically it doesn't goes harder its goes heavier. better to go old tyres or yokohama DNA or yokohama C in 185 /?/15 ratio

    well...definitely OEM tire sizes are best for your car suspension as well as economy....but if u really wanna stick to 195 then i would suggest you to go for 195/65(atleast)/15 so that u can get a little bit more softness......

    And you can also say its a little more sportier than the previous city model.....new city gives better steering response.....

    dear go for original factory fitted size....165/70R15 definitely u will feel a comfortable ride. plz dont go for 195/65/R15 its a corolla xli size and your suspension will become hard and car will consume much fuel.

    My city 2010 is with stock tyres. Have driven it 1400 + kms in one week and have not felt any issues of stiff suspension.

    hmm well with respect to fuel economy i am getting 12.5 - 12.8 km per litre in the city and thats with ac and calculated manually not as per car fuel consumption calculator which shows abt 15 km /l and it think 12.5 -12.8 is a decent average. so most of the opinions are that i may stick to this size, city has a natuarally stiff suspension but have to drive carefully. i have already spent money on these tyres so changing them again will be a hastle.

    the suspension is naturally hard... i've driven it on stock tyres and after changing it became soft as compare to the old....

    dunlop are better than euro star.... the width does not changes anything about the suspension except the grip..... btw we changed to 185/65/15 ... to be in the middle..... and dunlop won't ruin your car don't worry,,, but if the eurostars were there they would.... trust me.... on that

    adjust the tire pressure front 29psi and rear 30psi..... its written on the driver side door pillor.... that will releif your pain alot

    I had a city 09 (sold it 2 weeks back). The suspension is naturally hard. I had Yoko DB 195/65/15. The road grip was superb n steering was awesome. The suspension though was bumpy but when you have four people seated in the car, then its smoother. Just enjoy the car and dont worry about the bumpy ride. Factory fitted suspension is reliable and Honda knows what its doing.

    Sir

    SP Sports 300 are not good tyres, change the size to 205/55/15 and get some good tires like Michelin Primacy, Bridgestone Turenza ER30,AR10 or GR90, Kumho KH11.

    Gooyear NCT 5 or Continental Contipremuim 2 or Yokohama V550.

    You will definitely feel the difference.

    @fallingheights

    Sir

    They are harsh, they were installed in my Uncle's new 2005 VTI and they use to bump, even Pirelli's High performance sports P6000 on my father's 2005 EXI seems soft, also SP 300 are entry level tires and the tires I have recommended you are premium world class tires installed on Audi BMW and Mercedes, my C180 also had Michelins.
