    @gulouna: the tyre pressure for the original tyres is mentioned on a sticker on the driver side door sill. However since i'm using 205/55 R15 tyres on my vario, i keep them at 28psi up front and 30psi at the rear. If i'm carrying luggage for long distance then i use 30psi all over.

    keep it between 28-30psi for the stock tyres.

    and about the performance,if the tires r tightly filled wid air,u get better performance and fuel economy.thats because lesser area of a tyre is touching the road,so less friction.but the difference is negligable,very minute.

    Tire Pressure should be 27 psi for Honda City should be regardless of the tire size. Remember Tire pressure is not Air Quantity and hence DOES NOT increase with tire size.

    As i have also emphasized in other posts, do not modify or have any alteration done to ur vehicle unless nd untill u really know what u r doing and that does include large tires and after market wheels and accessories not approved by the manufacturer

    25/26 is too low. make it at least 27 as mentioned by ati41. I have front at 28 and rear at 30.

    do not over inflate either as it reduces contact area with road and hence reduces the breaking power.
    buckle-up and drive sensibly

    @Ati I do agree with u that no modification should be made without knowing its effect on car n driving... n tyres are one of the main components other than mechanical items that have to do alot with driving , driving style , mileage etc...

    At the very minimum, use the pressure printed on the door placard. For better fuel economy and longer tire life, use the maximum pressure written on the sidewall of the tire, usually about 44 psi.

    I use 45-50 psi on my Cultus; the max sidewall pressure is 35 psi.

    If you want better fuel economy, higher pressure is better. If you decide to inflate your to max sidewall, make the change gradual; add 2-3 psi once or twice a month. That way you can get used to it gradually.

    that make sence zain mahdi, but the thing is if i put more air pressure in my tyres it will definitely get harder and the ride surely be stiffer.

    Not to mention more air in tyres will also effect the road grip. Please follow what your door sticker says.
    Usually it will be any where b/w 26-32 for our sedan/ hatchbacks

    I keep 28 in all tyres in summer and 30 in winter, For highways, it goes down to 26 for better grip on high speeds
