    Go for dunlop sp490 (low budget),

    Or if you want ultra soft then go for yoko advan db.

    Michelin Energy Saver,
    are very fine tyres and their tag is 10k per tyre!

    we wanted to go for yoko db advan or yoko c drive but opted for michelin's!

    Michelin Energy Saver are just okayish tires. They're really not worth the price tag, I'd rather go for Pirelli P6 if I was to buy a set of entry level touring tires.

    One can get MUCH better tires in this range. Yokohama Advan db are way better than the Energy Savers, try looking for the Dunlop SP Sport MAXX, they're wonderful tires for the money.

    You'll be able to find Dunlop Direzza as well which are much better compared to Energy Savers.
    Also since you haven't mentioned your budget, try looking for the Continental Pro Contact or Comfort Contact, they're pretty good as well.

    Mention what you require from the tire and like I said mention your budget so that a specific tire can be suggested accordingly

    Direzza are fail tires? You have got to be kidding me here, seriously.

    Have you ever used them personally?

    I've used the Direzza Z1 Star Spec and trust me they were one of the best tires I've used on my car so far in the 195/55R15 size. Even read the reviews online and compare the ratings to other tires of it's class and you'll have a slight idea.

    They have amazing traction and are famous among the Autocross family.

    Whoever told you the Direzza are fail tires, I'd LOVE to hear some facts from them.

    But yeah, when you install the Direzza Z1 and expect them to have the smoothest ride and comfort levels, then they aren't a good choice, these are really good budget summer performance tires.

    Michelin Pilot Sport are very good tires as well, they even come as factory equipment on many BMW's.

    Here's a little review/test by Tire Rack:

    Yes. I have used these personally, in my previous SE saloon. I was quiet satisfied with those ones. But once i was driving on sehwan road at the speed of 110, suddenly a donkey came in front of car. Applied brakes, and car slipped for around 20 ft. Tyres got swollen, so i was in need to change two tyres. While searching for a pair i got feedback that direzza had that problem.

    Those 2 dead tyres are still lying in my store. If you wish i can show u both.

    Once you apply the brakes and the tires lock up in the case of a Corolla, the tires are under a lot of stress and friction is imposed only on certain part of the tire that's in contact with the tarmac, so obviously any tire will have the same end result unless the car has ABS.

    You had the Z1 Star Spec or the DZ101?

    Dont remember, for that i will need to jump on to my store (do chatti).

    Btw, it was se saloon and no ABS! It was one of the reason selling that car.

    U mean, every tyre will get swollen in the same scenario? Tyre wala's feedback was just for direzzas.

    I suggest you dont go for any 195 tyres and as far as Yokohama Advan DB and Michelin tyres are concerned there are only coming in 195 width. Asked official yokohama dealers too and they said that Advan DB is not coming in 185 profile. 195 is not suitable for honda city and will reduce the fuel economy. So i had two choices of tyres in the 185 profile Dunlop SP 3000 and Yokohama C Drive. I ultimately went for Dunlop SP 3000 and quite happy with them. Didnt have any user experience with the Yokohama tyres so didnt go for those tyres. Go for any good 185/65/R15 tyres and they are quite suitable to city and perfect for it.

    Which ever tire you go for, make sure it's suited to your requirements and has a recent manufacture date. 195 won't be wide for your car and won't affect fuel economy as much as a higher profile/aspect ratio will. Survey the market and do stop by at a Continental dealer and go through their range.

    Yeah, since the tires lock up and the friction really heats up the tires, the rubber becomes waste once this happens. A good tip in such situations is to pump the brakes or try and steer away if possible while keeping the car under control, but luck also plays a role.

    They told u wrong. Yokohama advan db do come in 185/65/R15.
    I know this coz of personal experience when i was looking tyres for my city some days ago. Waleed80 a guy on this forum also got the same tyres.
