    Cool New Tires for Civic 2010

    Since this is a frequently asked queiry regarding Civic 1.8, thats why decided to make a seperate topic. This topic is intended to help several PW users to make their decisions.

    Surveyed different shops, Options available in 15" were

    Michellin Energy
    Pirilli P6000
    Yokohama dB Decible
    Yokohama A Drive
    Yokohama Aspec A300
    Yokohama ES100
    Falken ZiEX 912
    Nitto, Toyo etc

    Was confused between Michellin, Yoko and Falken. After lot of research work ended up buying the Falken's in 205/65 R15.

    Based my decision on

    1) Value for money
    2) Awsome thread design
    3) Internet Reviews.

    Paid 20000 extra for 5 Tires and gave Eurostars away. So far, the tires are performing EXCELLENT. I donnot regret preferring them over dBs which used in my previous 2007 Civic 1.8.

    Pros over Yokohama BNA dB Decible [ES501]

    1) Out standing Dry and Wet grip. Tested them on clear patches of M2.
    2) Braking has improved ALOT.
    3) Reduced tyre spin

    Cons over Yokohama BNA dB Decible [ES501]

    1) A bit more noisy
    2) Thread design is less sporty
    3) Comfort level of Yoko db was a bit more.

    Still, i would suggest Civic 1.8 owners to consider Falken ZiEX 912 while looking for new tires.


    Tested by hondafanatic and SamiAlvi on my car aswell

    Conragts! Btw why didn't you consider Dunlop SP Sport 9000?

    The reason grip has improved and tyre spin decreased over Yoko dB is because these are 205 while Yokos were 195. Also why not go for 205/60? As 205/65 results in increase in ride height

    Sp9000s are old but no doubt very good tires. And on my previous ride i had dB in 205 size aswell. It was 205/60 R15

    Did not opted for 60 Profile this time because I had to do ALOT of khawari when one of my tire bursted and 205/60 was not available ANYWHERE. So decided to stick to 65 since its much more common and in demand. Although the ride looks less secksi.
