    Guys!! I need assistance regarding tires for my steermatic. I am planning to change the stock 185/55/15 tires. At the moment I went to a dealer in Islamabad, his offerings are:

    For my tires he is offersing Rs. 1,250 only (My car has done around 7,800 km and no puncture so far). And also he is suggesting not to change the stock spare tire

    He has the following tires to offer (I did not check if they were made in Japan)

    Yokohama A539 195/55/15 - Rs. 4,400 per tire
    Yokohama AS01 (S Drive) 195/55/15 - Rs. 4,300 per tire
    Dunlop Lemans LM702 195/60/15 - Rs. 4,000 per tire


    So what do u think guys, which one will give me max comfort with little or no compromise, do I have to insist that they should be Japanese made?? and if you think he is not giving me a good deal then please suggest the best tire dealer in Islamabad or Rawalpindi?

    yokohama A539 will do just fine.
    well i believe the price he has given u is for jap tyres.
    pls correct me if i m wrong.

    my stock tyres went for 3000 each ( only did 250km ) on them.
    i believe that a fair deal but bargaining is must.
    better to change all five than four.

    if u like i can check the price for u here in karachi for the given tyres so that u can compare the price if he is asking too much.

    regards

    Tried it once with shifter in S and M activated.

    Took 12.5 seconds. I didn't used the buttons to upshift, the tranny did it itself.

    Retrograde bro, the car is slow. Really. The weight is the killer here. This car weighs 1100 kgs. This car has the power of Civic Exi and torque of VTi (1.6L) but acceleration is still slow.

    And to make matters worse the first gear (in Manual mode) is pretty tall. Pulls upto 55 or so. This wastes precious time.

    moiz: i agree dude can't expect much from an auto tranny

    anyway i think S mode itself is fair enough as i have tried and it took around 10.1 seconds.

    Though car is sluggish in launch but after that the pickup is fairly good

    I closely monitor the petrol consumption of my steermatic. My records are:

    Best: 12.93
    Worst: 8.83
    Average: 11 (It's not the average of above two but what i usually get)

    My brother was clocking the pick while I was driving. There's no cng installed which increases weight. Perhaps if i was alone acc. would have been better.

    @archon2001 bro I only use Caltex petrol. There are only 2 caltex outlets that I trust. One is on Arts Council roundabout (on my way to office). The other is on Sharae faisal opposite FTC.

    Second, tire pressure is important. I inflate my tires to 35 psi. That's higher than recommended but economy increases.

    I've talked with the technical adviser at Drive In. His name's Simon. He told me that this city (1.3 & 1.5) has no adjustment for fuel economy. The car has sensors that control fuel supply (or whatever) automatically.

    Before visiting Drive In, here are small tips. Check your tire pressure and try to use Caltex Techron for some time. If avg still 9 or so then visit the dealer (and stop driving in S and M modes with a heavy right foot
