    Lightbulb Recommmended Tyres for Honda City 2011 onwards

    After using 10000Km on EURO Star I changed the Rims and Tyres and have put on YOKOHOMA C-Drive 185/65/15. After driving 150Km on the new tyres and Rims. I found new tyres very good. Comparison includes:
    • Good Road Grip and clearence
    • Fuel Efficiency increases from 15.8 to 17.8kmpl
    • Brake is spon-on in rain on wet roads


    I also recommend that not to go for 195/65/15 as it is dangerous for ABS Control. For 195/60/15 car will get lower and may hit speed breakers due to lower sidewall.

    Many, many thanks for your in-depth analysis. I had been using the 195/60 profile and found the clearance to be too low. Is the 185/65 profile light on the suspension? The results I've checked on visual tyre calculator are as follows:


    a difference of 1.1% on 195/60/15
    a difference of 2.1% on 185/65/15

    I have done lot of research on it. Actually, difference is of Speedometer and not of road clearence. City has quite hard suspension, and soft tyre is solution for it. C-Drive is reasonable in this case. You may opt for Michelin Energy Saver for this purpose. I found Michelin in Pindi but didn't buy it bcoz it was Made in Thailand, and price was Rs. 9500/tyre. Another drawback was that if God forbid one of the tyres get damage, there may be no replacement avaialble.

    195/60/15 has lower side walls, so it makes car too low clearence.

    Well i recently installed Dunlop DIGI tyre ECO 195/65/R15 in my brand new City ASPIRE!!! Uptil now i have noticed they are quite good tyres and are soft as well!!!

    BTW whats the price of Yokohama C-Drive and which one among Dunlop DIGI and Yokohama C-Drive is a better buy for new city 2011 onwards???

    Why would you people prefer YOKOHAMA over DUNLOP...Please give valid reason...P.S i know price of YOKO is more than Dunlop!!!

    Wrong Analysis!!!

    As compare to stock tyres, Car height will increase slightly if u opt for 195/60

    I tried to find ADVAN DB 551 but not available in market. On the other hand, dBs have deep grove and may result in problem during wet season trvelling. However, they are quite soft, so will have lesser life.

    I preferred Yokohoma bcoz it is Made in Japan, and price was reasonable of Rs.7400/- , a month back I got a quote of Rs. 8500/- in pindi.

    195/60/15 has lesser side wall i-e 65mm is lesser than 60mm. However, speedometer will have only 1% difference for 195/60/15.

    for ASPIRE, please don't go for 195/65/15 as it disturbs ABS significantly. Any types of tyre upsizing which is more than 3% of stock size can cause brake fail. So remove it. TBH DUNLOP DIGI is good tyre, but have a bit more noise and may be made in indonesia. Anyhow, you may opt for DUNLOP or Yoko but 195/65 is dangerous. It will also affect on steering.

    I don't think a wider tyre disturbs ABS.
    I'm using Dunlop sp sport 490 205/60/r15 in my city 2010. Road grip is superb. Braking is excellent. More better than Cities having 185/195 profile tyres. Stability is very good even at high speeds. Though I have sacrificed fuel economy for Better road grip. Which is way more fun to drive and turn car on sharp turns.
    I get 16km/l on GT-road driving with full time AC on and with heavy foot.
