    Default Suggestions required regarding tyres for new Honda City

    Hey all,

    I'll be getting a new Honda City tomorrow. It's the base version. So, I'll be taking the car directly to some tyre shop to change the tyres and rims.

    I've searched alot on this forum regarding the tyre size but couldn't find a satisfactory answer.

    Please, City owners suggest me a good tyre brand and tyre size for my new honda city.

    From what I've searched on this forum.

    I have narrowed down to following sizes:

    195-65-R15, 195-60-R15 and 185-65-R15

    However, I'm really confused between these three. How much will my fuel economy be affected and I want the ride to look good as well.

    Can city owners please help me.

    P.S Pics of these tyre sizes on your ride will be really really helpfull to me.

    Do you just wana change the tyre size or tyre brand??
    You may go for 185-65-15size as "195" becomes too big and "60" will be too hard for an already stiff suspension.

    I'm using the same stock tyres "Eurostar" that came wit it. Those are good for atleast 25k Kms.
    If you still want to change the tyres, then go for Michelin. I have used Michelin Energy saver in my previous city and am very satisfied with it. You may go for new Michelin range "XM2".

    brother go for 195 60 r 15 that is the perfect size for honda city and it want make any difference to fuel.
    brand go for michelin xm2
    and if u want ur car to look good go for 195 55 r 15 they will give a good sporty look to ur car.
    brand michelin or toyo.
    one thing when u go for tyre purchase do buy imported tyres dont go for summgeled tyre they are cheap but not trust worthy.do check the wareenty stikers on the tyres.

    Alternating bridging technology increases rigidity of tread blocks, thereby reducing tyre wear
    Micro-adaptive tread compound adapts itself to the irregularities of the road surface
    Wide tread grooves allow for a water to be evacuated quickly, improving grip in the wet
    Increased robustness, combined with the special tread rubber formulation has a double impact on increasing tyre life.

    brother if u read the second line it says that '' it adapts itsself to the irregularities of the road surface'' and in Pakistan mostly road are in such manner that they aren't proper condition.

    Thank you guys for the suggestions. Well I got the car today. But didn't go for a replacement right now. Was thinking to complete the break in period on these tyres. and then opt for the 185-65-r15 size Advan DB's.

    HOwever people at honda today advised me not to do so as this would void the warrenty. So i'm a bit confused. and the steering is too soft I love it. The honda guys were also sayin about steering becoming hard. What do you guys think about that?

    I agree with the poster above. Do not listen to the Honda people. they told me the same thing when I bought both My cities from them 2011 and 2013 version. I convinced them that 185s should be okay as they are just one step up above 175s and should not void the warranty.

    I do not drive my original tyres even for a day. I go straight from the showroom to the tyre shop where I have been buying tyres and rims for years. The guy is pricier than most but stands by his product. Quality.

    I got the yoko advan db 185s recently and though at first for the first couple of weeks I did not know what all the fuss was about but now a couple of months after driving it is like driving on air. Two thumbs up for them. Go ahead eyes closed.

    Some recc Michelins do not have any experience with them but do have with the yokos and I love them so far.
