    Default Optimum for City

    I recently changed my Honda City tyres to Michilin 185 / 60 R 15 from General 165 /60 R 13.
    During my first long journey I observed more then normal tyre noise. Other then that there was no abnormality. Please advise if this change is OK?

    ever checked a tyre website?
    they give "noise level" rating for a reason
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    Salam

    Yokohama DB series are the best in case of noise and softness. Yokohama A539 will also prove good but you must find japanese tires. I am using the same in my Steermatic, all thanks to pakwheeler who helped me get those.
