    Default Which tyres for City 2005

    Hi to All Pakwheelers,

    Need help regarding tyres. Owning City 2005, its rear tyres are loosing pressure. Experts says, they are done and you need new ones. Can you please suggest me, which tyres are best for this model and with price.

    I would really appreciate if I can get address/name of any authentic shop where I can buy good tyres.

    One more, should I change all 4 tyres, or just the rear ones. The front tyres have never decreased air pressure in months.

    Thank you all experts. I reside in Rawalpindi and Islamabad.

    175 is that it will lower down ur car and will give better road grip and fuel economy. But will hit in speed breakers.
    With 185 it will be nearly equal to the original size means better grip and no change in fuel economy and would survive the speed breakers.
    I personally prefer 185 70 r13.

    try dunlop eco, sumitomo tires (japanese), euro satar(general tyres) * just average, among them sumitmo one is good, dunlop eco is nice while eurostar can also bear the beatings of pakistani roads. i am using dunlop eco in my city and khyber, they were good for 4 years.

    if u r not going for the expensive rubber like Yoko or Michelins, then there is no need to opt for Dunlops as they are as good or as bad as the Pakistani Eurostars (a renamed General Tyre....which basically suck to be honest) . disadvantage is that ur car wont be having grip enough, and would be pretttyyyy stiff, but i guess that would be more or less compensated by the soft suspension of previous gen City which u own. but i m highly unsure if u can even find a 185/70/13 in Eurostars as they dont come in this size in Eurostars (just my thinking). have u tried looking for Yokohama Aspec (also known as Yokohama A300). they migh might fit into ur budget, but then, what IS ur max budget for 4 tyres

    PS : ur old tyres wont go for say more than 5k for all 4 tyres. used tyres go off dirt cheap

    @cooldevil, that should be great. 4 years is too good. Dunlop Eco it is then . I hope to get the size i require. Any price IDea.
    @waleed80, my budget was around 20k, which I thought would be more that enough . But after the reality check . Anyways, if old ones go for 5k, thats good too. it means total budget can be increased a bit.

    Default Just bought Yokohama A-Drive 175/70/R13

    I just purchased Yokohama A-Drive 175/70/R13 at a discounted price of PKR 7,300 each, total cost PKR 29,200 from Shaikh Brothers Karachi for my Lancer 1986 ( A 27yrs+ old car). @Sidra If your getting Michelin for 6,800 rs than it's quite cheap. You should increase your budget as you have a big car and safety is first priority. Shaikh bros is the only importer and distributor of Yokos in Pak. You can find dealers for ISL/RWL on the net or go to the main market of tyres there. Also see the manufacturing date of tyres. it's like (YYY180213). The last two numbers r the yrs i.e 13. All 4 old tyres were going for just 500rs, so I just gave it to my friend. @waleed Yokohama Aspec does not come now, it has discontinued now and neither Yokohama db Decibel comes in 13". You might find old stock in few shops but shaikh bros told me both have discontinued in size 13.

    There aren't any much choices of Made in Japan in size 13. I only use Made in Japan in all my cars. I had Dunlop Lemans LM701( Made in Japan) same size installed in my car. One of my dunlop developed a bump and i had to change it with a old one last year. The problem with Dunlop and Sumitomo is that it gets bumps aur tyre phool jata hai gubarey ki tarha. Yeh bohat porani bemari hai inmein and every tyre wala knows it well. Dunlop and Sumitomo are both manufactured by Sumitomo Rubber Corporation, Japan.

    I am just amazed to see why didnt anyone tell this here. I have a Baleno 2003 with Yokohama db decibel 185/70/R14 installed on it and Vitz 2002 with Yokohama Aspec 175/70/R13 installed on it. I prefer everyone to go for Yokos in Pak. My Baleno was also installed with Dunlop LM 701, 3 tyres developed the bump and i had to change all 4 way early.

    honestly i also had a nice experience with eurostars! my 2008 xli was used as a rent a car! it was used in KPK for a couple of years and we all know how the cars on rent are used/abused. they remain good for 3 years! old tyres will go for max 1k!
    regarding the problem of the bump development in dunlop tyres, road conditions in islamabad are pretty good so its not a big issue here. my car daily goes to isb from BT and comes back say daily a 100km journey! now after 4 years the thread on the tyres went pretty thin so ill be changing them soon IA.if i had enough money then surely i would have got yokos or michelin.

    Dunlops are very very prone to getting bubbles on its wall. Highly not recommended. Even used Yokohama is better than a new Dunlop I would say. Plus in hot weather they squeak on the turns and on round abouts. As I said, if it's not Yokohama or Michelin, then it's better you get General
