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
Yokohama dB Decible
Yokohama A Drive
Yokohama Aspec A300
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.
