    Question Tyres for Civic 2012

    Assalamualaikum everyone!

    My dad just got a 2012 Civic Vti Prosmatec in Silver yesterday! Really happy with the car. But needed a quick tyre suggestion. The size I would go for is the stock 195/65. But the most popular/heard of tyres are as follows:

    1. Michelin Energy Savers
    2. Yokohama Advan DB

    I've myself seen alot of civics with advan db tyres. But would like a suggestion from you guys.
    Help would be appreciated

    i'd say yoko db advan!! michilens are good but the energy saver isnt really the "michelin" standard... yoko db advan is super grippy, super quite and very comfortable...

    Could anyone please tell me the place in Lahore to get Advan DB fresh 2012 tires. I have checked in Nila Gumbad, tires are available at J Rashid and at some others but manufacturing date is of 2011.

    @Nomi929

    From where did you bought tires and price for 195/65/R15 ? Was it of 2012 ?

    For Advan, dB - Tyre Tracks, Main Faisal Town, Lahore. I got 195/60-15 (2012) for my City. It was Rs 10,500 per piece. 195/65-15 is easily available in the market, so shouldn't be that expensive. BOL

    Thanx Nouman for the info, i will check them IA.

    The Price you mentioned seems to be high , as Advan DB of size 195/65/r15 was about 8500-8800 per tyre in Nela Gumbat.

    Why change brand new tyres the stock tires are pretty good these days. Wont you end up selling these cheaply paying money for an older production tire .

    You will get 195/65-15 in around 8.5-9k. The price of 195/60-15 is a little higher as it is not easily available in the market.

    Thanks for the suggestion guys! I have now opted for the Yoko Advan DB tyres. But one more question. Are these tyres grippy on wet surfaces? And are they softer than the stock Euro Star? Cuz I found these tyres quite hard, and they don't deal with bumps in the road quite well.

    The stock tyres are really hard and a lot of people, including me, find them really hard!

    Dude you should go for Dunlop Digi Tyre ECO in 195/65 R15 size for your Honda Civic VTi Prosmatec!!!

    They are great tyres from DUNLOP for mid sized sedans and deal well with bumpy roads as they are very soft tires!!!

    I have installed them in my City ASPIRE 2012 and i just love them...Running perfectly and giving no issues at all!!!
    For swift and gutsy response use CIVIC!!!
