    Default Tyres For Civic 1.8 (Bad_Cheetah)

    I'm planning to change the stock tyres of my Civic 1.8 ( Bridgestone B390 ) and since im confused between tyre choices i need help from people who are more learned than me in this field.

    The choices which i have in mind are

    Yokohama ES100

    Dunlop Sp 9000

    Pirelli P6000

    Main objective is basically to achieve
    A comfortable ride, WITHOUT having to compromise on road grip and performance. The tread pattern matters a lot too.

    I dont know the price and availabilty of Pirelli's and Yoko's which ive mentioned above, but Sp9000 are available for 7000-7200 a tyre, depending on different retailers.

    If you have any other tyres which you want to suggest, you're more than welcome; but please be sure those tyres are available in Lahore, and not dating to anything before 2009.

    So till now majority of the votes are for Yokohama dB decibles & Dunlop SP SPORT 9000!
    Which one of these is better in terms of more comfort, doesnt tend to get hard soon, less road noise and traction?

    You can't get traction and comfort in one package

    If traction is what you are after SP Sport 9000
    If noise reduction/comfort is what you are after then Yoko dB/Yoko C drive

    Salam to all i have used dunlop sp in various profiles but in my opinion its a useless tyre bubbles on the sidewall, thts wats happend to every dunlop i ever used. In my opinion u can use either Nitto or Bridgestone as i have used both of thm in the 1.8 civic improves grip and braking tremendously. Have no experience with pirelli. But the Michelin tyres are the bomb. Great grip and drive i m yet to test thm fully in wet weather.

    [QUOTE=Bad_Cheetah;2609199]@ accord7362
    i didnt have goodyear in mind, thanks for the reminder sir, i would also check out their tyres, any experience with them in the 195/65 tyre size you could share ?

    Na yar Shazaday goodyear ka experience tuu nahee hay but I heard its a good brand.
    I have A++ experience with bridge stone (potenza) (50Kdriven on my first steermatic & 28K driven on my second steermatic without any single sign of wear & tear) but than they are for performance and in your rating you need comfort at the top, but still for me the bottom line is the 100% confirmed fresh tires & not the tempered one anyway good luck !!

    okay after reading all the comments @ uiv, versatile, usmanghani, 2559922, devil and mani1

    i think i should stop thinking much about the Es100, although the tread pattern on it is lovely and great for wets, but since such conditions arent what we get here in Lahore all the times, it doesnt really matter, and since it being a really hard tyre, i think i wouldnt settle for it.

    @ uiv
    as far as the pirelli's are concerned, i think you explained it pretty well, but im still a little confused that why would such a great tyre not be as good or for that very matter even close to good on our roads, if you were to compare it with the sp9000 would it ( p6000 ) still be on the losing end?( iv mentioned my driving style and conditions in previous posts )

    @ usmanghani
    i would check the my01 out as well!

    @2559922
    another vote in favour of sp9000

    @ devil and mani1
    too bad S drive is then out of the picture, since im sticking to the stock rim size!

    @ samialvi
    exactly my point!

    @ mani1
    sp9000 kitnay chal gaye hein in your cars? and any issues with bubbles on the side walls or getting punctured quiet often?

    @ accord and holystan
    bridgestone were already in it, but oh well why not again if i get a good tyre, any purticular model ( with a directional tread ) and a price in the bracket of 7-8k per tyre. and if you could give your input about them in terms of road noise, comfort, and traction

    P6000 is an excellent tyre. But I will suggest dB Decible. It has nice thread pattern too.

    Tip.

    Why dont you increase the your tyre size to 205/65 R15? 205's look nice and sporty.

    yaar tumnay tou db ki side hi leni hei
    tyre size nahin change karna on the stock rims, and 205 65 on a 15 would get a little too beefy, agar change kiya bhe tou 205 60 r15, but dekho kiya banta hei, at the moment the top tyres in my list are

    sp9000
    db decible
    potenza( dont know the model yet, maybe G3, let someone give in their input on the G3 or any other potenza )

    khair decibles ki grip kesi hei cornering wagaira, tumharey kitnay chal gaye they, how about them in wet conditons

    I have used 12 tires of Sp Sport 9000 amongst which 2 developed bubbles in side walls. Both these tires were on the car used by my cousin who drives aggressively and drives at full speed over potholes. With this type of driving style ANY medium/soft tire will develop bubbles including Yoko dB or C drive. The only tires which won't develop bubbles are hard tires like ES100 or Goodyear Eagle F1 but these hard tires will ruin the comfort of the car and give you a 50k suspension repair bill after 40k km guaranteed. Choice is yours

    lolz. Yaar db is just a reasonable tyre. Not so much performance oriented. Cornering is good. Never drove enthusiastically on wet roads so dont know. Apart from dB. I have only tried Bridgestone B390s which sucked big time.

    i dont drive at more than a 10kmph over bumps and potholes, so i guess im on the safe side, es is not in the run anymore, im very purticular about my car, dont want to ruin its suspension, sp9000, potenza and db, lets see how things work out!

    After reading all the replies posted here, I think that the Yokohama dB Decibel would be the best for your usage!
    The SP Sport 9000 would be good too but its a performance oriented tyre.. So that leaves you with Decible.. Rest its upto you to decide!

    @mani1, My bad about S-drive, i drove those tires on an accord and they comfort level was just superb. I beg to differ here with u regarding SP9000, my experience with them has led me to conclude that SP9000, LM702, Eco are only good for the first 25K km n then they tend to go hard! The only soft dunlop tire that i have come across so far was SP490 (the original Japanese one, not the one that is currently available in the market for 4.2K in 14"). But I can't say anything about it lasting for 40K since i never had the chance of driving them for such a while.

    @bad_cheetah, I suggest that you opt for Yokohama DNA dB, eyes closed. Yokohama C-drive is another excellent and economical option. I m using them on my '03 City and i am satisfied consumer but dB is still much better. C-drive will cost around 6.4K/tire and dB will cost u 7.0K/tire.

    Don't even think about opting for Potenza. They are as hard as rock! A friend switched from Potenzas to Michelin Energy, and the drive became simply marvelous.

    the decibles are taking the lead lol
    devil rate them in terms of
    grip at cornering say about 80 kmph( make a hypothetical situation )
    grip under wet conditions

    the rest which is mainly road noise and comfort i think is great on them right>?

    They have a fantastic road grip so i reckon that they will be excellent when it comes to cornering.
    I never actually had a chance to ever test them in wet conditions. Though I have frequently used C-drives during rain and they have a marvelous grip in wet. So my verdict based on the assumption that dB are an evolution of C-drives, dB will perform great in the wet.

    Decibles have such optimistic reviews, nice, i think i would have to really give them a thought now over sp9000

    nops wont be going for a bigger tyre size on the stock rims as ive mentioned above, but if i get the rims changed then i would but thats a different story, i think db would be a good tyre to settle for, even though the tread pattern on it is pretty simple and at my age i would want something which looks a little different when you rotate the steering, but oh well nevermind if db are really that good!
