    Default Honda City 2009 New Tires options

    Hi - I need to know which brand and model will be the best for Honda City AT. I will appreciate if someone can provide pricing information.

    Thanks in advance!

    Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

    Agree with @misteek on the brand. But have reservations on the profile.

    Two months back my friend installed Yoko Advan DB 195/65/R15 in his city, cost him Rs. 8,200 per tyre.

    I've also installed Yoko Advan DB's last week on my Axio, same size and it cost me Rs. 8,300 per tyre.

    this profile is best to keep the tyre within the same diameter as standard.

    Again, I agree on the diameter part.

    But this tyre width is not suitable for drive handling. A lower profile would also cause stiffer suspension.

    The following may also help. The key is to match the tyre width as per maximum supported by Rim. And that is 185 with the City Steel Rims.

    You either have 2.1% difference in speedometer (with 185/65) or you face the below illustrated (with 195/60).

    i am sorry i am not able to understand the above figure.

    city origionally comes with 175 width tyre which is way too thin. i went for 195 and i was more than happy.

    about ride stiffness, i am not sure as city already has got a very stiff suspension. Its stock tyres were very hard, after changing them i would obviously feel them relatively softer.

    about the width part, i dont think its steel rims cannot support the width, i beleive they can easily.

    Sir, as a final attempt, I sure hope the below link clears all your confusion.

    Cross reference table: Car tyre tips - Pneus Online


    The tyre side walls reshape during cornering. If the re-shaping is too much, you'll feel an unpredictable steering. And that is indicated by reduced contact patch.

    If you happen to visit honda.com.pk , you'll see that the stock city rim is 5J wide. Thats not 5" width in total. But 5" from between the two raised points where tyre collar sits.

    yes i got it what you wanted to say.

    The table shows that the maximum width tyre that can b fitted to a 5 inches wheel/rim is 185. beyond this, the deshaping of tyres will b more than normal which may cause problems.

    thanks alot for ur help. that was a nice thing to know

    both of your cars have 185 width tyres, so how could you compare them with 195. I would b great if you had gone for 195 on one car and 185 on other as this will have helped you to objectively evaluate the performance/handling etc of both the tyres.

    your point would have been valid had THOSE been the only cars I have. Re read my post. The two cities are part of my car collection .......I have others with different tyre sizes...........so I stick to the original point........185s for the city is a good enough size for our country.............go to any tyre shop such as Zafcom in karachi he will tell you the same thing even though he will make more profit on the 195s.............

    even apart from my own cars and my families my friends prefer 195s and 205s and I have driven their cars ......ride may be smoother but handling suffers not to mention I leave them in the dust everytime......if we go for some drivin

    i actually read your complete post and i have no doubt about your car collection
    my point was that you have got two Honda city cars. it would have been an add-on when you had tested two different tyre sizes on same car.

    Else, i have agreed to your point that 185 is better than 195 for a 5 inches wide wheel.

    low profile tyres are meant for performance not for comfort, so more precise rim width selection is required to get max out of low profile tyres.
    ideal rim width for 195/60 profile is 6.5 to 7 jj
