    Default Tyres for my Honda City 2010

    So its 4 years and 33000 km to the trashy Eurostar Tyres that my City came with.

    When is it time to change the tyres?

    I am an aggressive driver and need tyres that would provide traction. I believe Eurostar provided good traction in the first year or so, but the car can now skid in, say, aggressive cornering. There are some frequent punctures that I am now facing, every couple of months.

    What tyres are recommended for me?

    THANK YOU!!

    If you are an aggressive driver, and don't care about comfort, set the tire pressure higher than mfr. Whatever brand tire you use, you will find increased traction, braking, and tire life, at the cost of comfort. BTW, I use 44-44 psi regularly in my '03 Civic.

    they normally keep it to 30 right??? 44 sounds like very high i think...

    i think i need some soft tyres for comfort, which i can set to high tire pressure when in a rush..

    LOL. Low tyre pressure gives more traction.y do people deflate in sand n snow? Over inflation would mk the tyre stiff slippery but fuel economy would get better

    I have heard Optimo Hankook tires have good grip; I have never used them though. Any owners care to comment?

    I'm currently using Yokohama C drives on my 2014 City and am satisfied with the results. The traction and comfort both are pretty good.

    Advan db and Michelin Energy savers are indeed softer but they tend to get punctured pretty easily on our roads.

    And you must be also agreeing with me...This tyre is a bit noisy...I mean it disturbs you on bad quality roads...On good roads offcourse noise doesn't generates...Specially for wehmi people Advan DB serves the purpose very well as its Super Quiet!!!

    i am using yokohama advan db 185/65 on one car and Nexen 195/65 on other.. both city 11 model, and i have to say go for 195, it may b a bit bad on economy (depend on how u drive) but sure is way more comfortable. both are better then euro. but since both almost cost the same and around double the price of euros id say 195 is better, with 185 u get good economy but not the comfort that u should get over spending double the cash of euros. also fresh tires last around 3 years, its up to u how much u use them, my friend used a yoko set on his city around 140,000 kms in 3 years, total flawless. if your car is not used that much and you don't go crazy on moterway like 150+ then even eurostar 195/65 (corolla tyre) is good enough. u get good comfort in less price. main point tyre is fresh.
