    Default Where to balance new city from after tyre upgrade?

    Hey tyre gurus,

    I'm going to replace stock tyres for my new City with yokohama 195/60s.

    Afterwards, do I need to align or balance tyres and

    Q 1) should I get this done from honda dealership/3s or outside market?

    Q 2) Should I just get alignment done or balancing is needed too after tyre change?

    I'm getting 12k for the euro stars, guess that's a good rate.?

    Q 3) does it affect my warranty to go to 195/60 from the stock 175/65? There's only 1% difference in car diameter with the change.

    Good idea to go to dealership for balancing / alifnment since they'll know I've changed to a non recommended size and they decide my warranty for later on.?

    Thanks

    This is the place senior pakwheelers recommended me. I went there two years ago and yes they are serious guys, no talking, just work and good work and rates are very reasonable. I don't remember what I paid exactly. This workshop is at Mureer Chowk Rawalpindi. If you are coming from Saddar side, it's on the left just after crossing Mureer overhead Railway bridge.

    Wow the photos on that fb page. The new tires have still those tiny plastic hair to show its brand new. The tires I got, yokohama from Asad Tires pindi didn't have such hair. Even though they were manufactured about 5 months ago.

    These 'hairs' dont just go away when you put in new tyres. They stay there for few Kms. No hairs at all means tyres sold to you as new are driven for atleast more than few Kms.

    Bought Continental CC5 for my Corolla and Hankook H706 for Khyber. Both from their authorized dealers. The imported tyres don't have those "hair".

    Asad Tires Saddar Rawalpindi is a well renowned Yokohama dealer. I have bought Yokohamas from him in the past. Dorry worry, your tires aren't fake.

    And yes, wheel balancing is must after the tire change. Recently when I replaced EuroStar tires of my Corolla with Continental CC5, I put them on the balancing machine and there was a difference. The wheel balancing was done free of cost by the dealer from whom I purchased new tires.

    Thanks.

    These are for 2013 Vitz black colour. The good part is that the tyre size is 185/55 r15. Low profile tyre looks awesome on 15" aluminium rims.
