    Exclamation Urgent: Honda Civic Reborn Tyres

    Hello PW Members,

    I bought a Honda Civic Reborn 2010 and just received it yesterday. I was going to change the tyres, so I'm still confused about the best combination of tyres and brand to use.

    The Stock are Euro Star 195/65 R15

    And i was thinking of going for 205/60 R16

    So whats the best brand to go for?

    Yokohama
    Michelin
    Bridgestone
    Goodyear
    Dunlop
    etc

    And also please suggest the best available rims which are also reliable for these combo.

    Reply fast, cuz probably will go today at night for these purchase both tyre + rim. And also how much will the stock will be sold for?

    195/65R15 634mm
    205/60R16 652mm

    the size is almost 3% too large,.. meaning that the 205/60R16's are too big for your car.

    if you want to go for 16's you'll have to go for:

    205/55R16 632mm
    215/55R16 643mm
    225/50R16 631mm

    as for brands,.. most are smuggled, almost all have had their date stamps changed. so unless you are buying from a real authorized dealer you are about to make a huge mistake as the new tyres which come on the civic are not too bad for their intended purpose.

    almost all rims available in PK are heavy and cheap. i'd suggest keeping the far superior original rims on the car and fitting a wider tyre (if you must)

    @storm

    Dude i believe euro stars(general) tires are not worth keeping so go for Dunlop or Bridgestone - ofcourse you cant compare them with Michelin etc but they worth the price.

    secondly for rims i agree with storm don't change them stock oriel onez are worth keeping.

    205/60 or secondly 215/55 is the best choice.

    Go for Continental contipremium 2 or Michelin Primacy HP, Ihave seen them at Khalid bin waleed road.

    If it is an Oriel then keep the original rims and go for 205/65 R15.

    And as for the tyre brand, iam using Yokohama DB Decible 205/60 R15 in my Oriel and that is an excellent tyre.

    Rest is your choice.

    I think ill go for the Stock tyres in the mean time and get new Rims. But ill have to stick to the same Rim size for future tyre changes.

    My specs gonna be
    Eurostar 195/65 R15 with new rims.
    (Before there were just steel tyres, no Rims)

    Please suggest me good rims brands/ countries(like china, korea)/ style.

    Please help me by elaborating which suits Civic Reborn more. My tide is Golden

    Uploading pics will be very helpfull

    check the date stamp and its immediate back side. If it is smooth and consistent (throughout the tyre), then its unlikely that the tire is old. Also try getting a late 09 tire instead of insisting on a late 2010 tire as this would also increase your chances of getting a genuine tire (reason being, any fraudster who changes the date stamp would stamp a late 2010 stamp instead of a 09 stamp). Also go for newer models/variants of tires.

    All these would ensure you get a fresh tire.

    I fully agree. Same setup here, and it works great!

    Yup that would be thoughtful. But as you are looking for a new rim. I'll suggest you to go for 16" rim and tyres. As the standard tyre across the world for 1.8 civic comes with 16", be it USA, UK or Japan. So go for 16 inches rim and the tyre specs should be 205/65 r16 or 205/60 R16


    If you want to keep the 15" inches configration then the idea you have proposed is excellent.
    As for tyres ive told u the brand, Yokohama dB Decibles. Its a replacement of C-Drive as its getting old and outdated.

    And if you are worried about fuel average, then let me tell you, Since i have changed my tyres from 195/65 R15 to 205/60 R15. I still havnt noticed even a slight fall in fuel average. Inspite the tyres have widened and the profile has decreased. Amazing isnt it. this is due to the good quality tyres iam using. Rest is upto u.

    Nothing to do with 'good quality' tires.

    It is a physics fact that wider tires do not affect fuel economy

    the smart thing would be to buy a good set of tyres now and later on to buy an original set of honda rims.

    buying rims now and sticking to the stock tyres is the wrong way round if you intend on spending on your rolling stock.

    if you use the exact same compound but just widen the contact patch then you are increasing your rolling resistance, so wider tyres DO effect fuel economy.

    sadly in PK all of our tyres are sh*t and our roads are shiney/smooth so we don't actually know what real driving dynamics are.

    Actually no. Sadly I don't have my A levels Physics book with me anymore so I cant quote/post a scanned pic however I will explain.

    I agree that a wider tire would increase the contact patch and hence marginally increase the rolling resistance only when the car is launched. However given the same amount of input (i.e. accelerator), fuel economy would not be affected but rather acceleration would come down. Offcourse, this loss in acceleration is not noticeable to anyone.

    However, lets for argument sake, consider that acceleration indeed suffers a huge blow, and the driver has to increase the input (i.e. accelerator) to achieve the desired acceleration. This would obviously affect the fuel economy. But then when looking at the flip side, i.e. when braking, the wider contact patch means the car also comes to a stop quickly, hence the engine has to work (in strictly physics terms) for a shorter time period resulting the more fuel economy. Hence the fuel economy equations balances out due to braking and acceleration.

    The only way, wider tires can have an affect on fuel economy is when you go from, lets say, 185 to 225 when obviously the mass of tire being used has increased significantly (in % terms) and hence the car has more weight to move. In this case alone, can one argue that fuel economy might suffer a little.

    I don't think a wider tire affects fuel economy but increasing the width by a significant distance may bring a decrease in the average.

    I have to get the rims now. So getting R15 would help my current stock.

    Please also note that i have to go from Karachi to Lahore on this Civic . So i think testing the stock tires will be a good option. When i return, ill probably change the tires.

    My date of departure from Karachi would be around 7-8 July and hopefully for 20 Days or more. So the trip is by road and ill get to test my ride to its max!
