    Default Tyre Recommendation for Honda City 2004-2005

    I currently have Yokohama's 357 Radials and safe to say, one of the worst (uninformed) decisions I've ever made!

    The tyres got pretty hard after just a few KMs, the power steering has been pretty hard ever since I got these. But most of all, these are some NOISY-*** tyres! The only good thing about the 357s is that they've never broken down (alhamdulillah) even once!

    Its been 3 years now. I've used these for 50,000-60,000 kms during this time and they're extremely hard now. Which means time for a change.

    I'm open to recommendations, in the 13" category. Yokohama, Bridgestone, Dunlop... any good tyres would do.

    Cannot exceed a budget of Rs.6000-7000 at all.

    I want durable, long-lasting tyres that aren't noise.

    I've been hearing some good things about Yoko's DB series, and Aspec series. Le Mans too. However I'm open to recommendations.

    Might even upgrade to 14" or 15" if I can find a good set of alloy rims. Thoughts?

    Posting a long overdue update: Got the Dunlop Digityre Eco 13" on the recommendation of a few shop-walas a few weeks back. The date was 2012 on all tyres.

    I'm happy to say that there is a VAST improvement in the car's ride and comfort. Above all, the noise levels seem to have dropped significantly. A major improvement over the Yoko 357's I had before this (easily the worst, most noisiest tyres ever. Regretted getting them from day 1).

    What are your opinions on these tyres? From what I've seen, a lot of people on PW dont seem to rate the Digityre series. But from the few weeks that I've used these, they seem to be an excellent set of tyres.
