    YES !!!!


    if you go now to any tyre shop they will buy it back less 500 t0 800 than the new price of the same model, plus the general tyres aren't much of quality inspite try using some unbranded korean and you'l feel the difference. or some branded ones as per your taste.




    good luck..

    Personally, I can't see what's wrong with Eurostar tires. I am able to take 50 km/h turns at 70-80 km/h in my Civic with 185/65 R-15. There might be some better choices, but by no stretch are Eurostars inadequate. I can only compare them to Goodyear; they are slightly noisier than equivalent Goodyear.

    Save some money, and keep using them.

    as they say there is nothing wrong indeed, could be a less noisy thingy, a more better road grip, softer than this (soft suspension less bumpy ride.)... these are the options you can get while changing.

    Don't waste your money. Euro stars are fine. We run cars for office work across Pakistan and all have Euro stars and have never failed in any terrain, situation, weather for years. They are built according to Pakistani road conditions, which are worst, apart from a few VIP roads in our two three main cities.

    Many of my friends have run Euro stars on their personal cars for more than 90,000 kms without any problem. I too switched from Dunlop, Yokohama back to Euro Klass directional (a special product of General tyres) and it felt a lot better.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    No need to change at all. I drove them for 66k on my corolla 2012 and around 30k on my 2014 civic. I drive mostly in between Lahore, Isd/Psh and Abbottabad.

    Drive them for at least 50k and then you may change them with any Japanese or whatever you like.

    Bro change them, EuroStars are hard tyres and essentially you compromise on comfort and road grip with these! Change to either continental or Pirelli, you will notice the difference in the drive quality the very first day!

    I've used Euros in both my 03 Oriel and 10 GLi and honestly both cars felt like a skateboard, I would even feel small pebbles on the road. Ive changed to Dunlop SP Sport, and even though these arent the best, change is very much noticeable in both my cars.

    Honda City already has a hard suspension, the hard Euro Star tyres make it worst. For Corolla, you can keep the Euro Stars as Corolla's suspension is soft. I replaced the Euro Stars on my Honda City iVTEC with Michellin and found a lot of difference.

    Why have you downgraded to 185/65/15 in Civic?

    I thought you were talking about 9th Gen Civic.
    By the way isn't the stock tyre size for VTi and VTi Oriel (7th Gen) 195/65/15 and EXi's stock tyre size 185/65/14.
    More over I have seen EuroStar tyres in 175/65/15 and 195/65/15 but never in 185/65/15

    there is nothing wrong with using them if you are never gonna go above 120....euro stars arent the best when it comes to quality...thy cant handle the pressure at sspeeds above 150 yes they can go above it easily even 200 but do recite kalma coz anything can happen when it is euro star.....they are hard and in city or civic suspension which is already hard it makes a mennace...there is no cornering grip in these...its like you are driving a car on a layer of water....you want to feel the difference between some good tyre and euro star go on a carpeted road go to 60kmph and then hit the break suddenly then use a better tyre on the same place in same scenario....you will feel the problem yourself what i am talking about....yokoham db is goodd michellin is good pirelli is good and continental too....you can select them in this order pirelli>continental>michellin=yokohama (michellins grip is a bit better than yokoham but drive comfort is lesser there is alot of road noise)

    If you sell them now they'll go for around 20k if you sell them later on they won't go for Rs500. However Euro star are alright but obviously not good enough to be compared with branded ones. We used Euro stars in our city for upto 55k mileage, they worked perfectly fine and then switched to continental and a believe you me there is a huge difference in the drive now a lot smoother than before.

    Bottom line: they r nt the best in class bt are nt that bad either. If you go for softer tyres you might feel a lil more comfortable in your city. Do not go beyond 195/ 60/ 15 as ths is the closest size whch matches the stock tyres.

    195 size came in the 8th gen. 185 with 15 rims is stock for the 7th gen VTi. Not sure about EXi, but there is an EXi standing outside my hostel with 175/65 14 tires.

    These tires were bought around 3 years ago, I am not sure about their availability nowadays.

    Euros will be fine till 20k after that they tend to wear quickly. Better to change now then to get the dent at 20k. You can swap the euros for reasonable amount now. It's my opinion, rest its your money thus your decision.

    Not really required except if you are looking for those fancy and a little bling bling alloy rims.
