    Well yes, stock size is what is recommended for your car but if you stil wana change then go for 195/60/15 which is the closest to your stock size.
    Having used all the good tyre brands i can vouch for all of em i.e. Yoko, Michellin & Contis . Just get the original ones with fresh rubber !

    Dear I have driven Michelin Energy Saver (195/65; 22,000 km), Stock Tires (175/65; 35,000km), Nexen 672 (195/65; 12,000km), GT BXT (195/65; 1000 km), Nexen SU4 (195/60; 100 km) and now using Nexen Blue Eco (195/65; 500 km). What i would recommend to everyone is to install nothing else but Nexen Tires in Honda City with size 195/65/R15. You will not believe how much comfortable they are. These tires will give you 10 times more pleasure than Corolla and Civic. No jerks, no sound. Excellent tires. I got them from Said Traders in Faisal Town Lahore. You can mention my name to get discount. Regards, Saqib.

    The above table shows the saving we get for a single mileage increase considering daily usage of car. As you can see that we can only save Rs 800 per month if we drive car for more than 75 kms daily (26 days) if we increase its mileage with 1km. This concludes that people who are driving less than 75kms need not to worry about mileage of their cars as the saving amount is not significant. Therefore for 90% of the people mileage is not relevant factor. Its the driving comfort and road clearance. Therefore feel free to install 195/65 size tires on Honda City as this will impact only Rs 500 monthly for average user, but the quality of ride will improve considerably.

    Here CONS is Consumption or Mileage per litre.

    Soft tires have good grip, however, they wear faster too.

    Yes if question was about tyre life i would have suggested opposite.
    Michelin - cc5 - advan db

    But question of op was which one is softer.

    I am personally using Advan db in 15" and michelin primacy 3 in 17"

    Advan db are great but thir grip is less in first 5000 kms. After 5k kms their grip and braking improves a lot. I have used them 3 times in two cars.

    Change interval for advan db is max 40k. After that they become hard and noisy

    I fail to understand the logic. Tires get hard with age. They are softer when new. So what causes grip to improve after 5000 km?

    I personally have used Continentals. They lasted only 35000 km. Now using Michelin. They are 8000 km old. It's a pity I will be upgrading from Civic, 9th gen. to 10th gen, so will not get full experience with the Michelin's.

    Yup tires get hard with age because the tread of a soft tyre changes with the age. The wear and tear of tyres makes it harder with time.
    Harder with time does not mean it becomes more hard than lm 702 or other pretty hard tyres. But it means its softness decreases when they become old.

    I used advan db for 40k kms and then replace them with new advan db,s. i instantly felt that ride became softer and less noisier. Why did i feel that when tyres were same. ? Got my point

    What causes the grip to improve after certain kms ?

    Try getting brand new tyres and do hard braking. They wont perfrom. Why because tyres are coated with a special chemical to prolong their shelf life. A few hunded kms are required for a tyre for a proper break in and start performing to its optimal level.

    In my experience of using advan db. Advan db performs optimally after 3k kms.
    I also used michelin primacy 3 and i felt lack in grip while braking in first 1000 kms. After 1000 kms the grip of tyre increased and braking improved.

    See "break in of new tyre" at google

    Traction wise Continental CC5 and Michelin XM2 is better, but in comfort and road noise Advan dB has no competitor. Any brand either its Michelin, Continental or Yokohama becomes hard and noisy after 50k kms.

    I found Advan dB tooo soft for my ride, these tyres had a tendency of producing hard thud or jump while crossing cat eyes and frequent punctures. Now using Cdrive, give more traction on motorway and no puncture for the last 14 months. Ride is Honda city 13 aspire.

    Advan dB is much better than C Drive. Advan dB is Yokohama's most finest line up of tires.

    You can also go for Pirelli Centurato P1. It will set you back to 7000-7500 per tyre (I got mine for 7k in Karachi). I got them for my Swift and I am very satisfied in terms of drive comfort and road noise. I would suggest to go for 185s
