    Default Bought new Civic, help needed!

    Dear friends,
    My new Honda Civic VTI Oriel Prosmatec arrived yesterday. I need some help regarding the tyres since i am confused. The tyre dealer told me to get the Eurostars replaced while the honda dealer said they are good to go and its a waste of money to change them. I want suggestion from fellow pakwheelers with civics whether to change the tyres or not since if ive to change them then its now coz the resale of stock tyres will be good now. Ive been using dunlop tyres for my previous cars but heard yokohama advan db are better. I need following suggestions:
    1. Whether to change my tyres or not?
    2. If yes, please suggest top 2 brands with specs which are tested n trusted in civic with latest prices if possible.
    3. For how much would the old tyres be sold approx?
    4. Best and reliable tyre shops in Islamabad/Rawalpindi?

    Hope to get good replies from you sooner,friends, coz i have to decide in a day or two. Thanx a lot for your time.

    keep using the EuroStar tires if you don't travel frequently on the Motorway.

    From my personal experience I will suggest you to change the tires, your ride will become smoother, reliable and free from the frequent noises created by euro star tiers.
    I will suggest you to go for Yokohama db advan v551, I have them on my civic and am loving the driving experience.
    The tires costed me 8700 (approx) per tire and this excludes the exchange of euro star as I gave them to a friend.
    As I am from lahore so cannot suggest a shop in Islamabad.

    depends on your requirement. If you want grip then go for yokohama db, but you will suffer in ride quslitu. if you want comfort go for dunlop lm series or sumitomo is a verry good all rounder.

    Keep the Euros. Nothing will happen to them on motorway. Rest it is your money, but the gains are not much and worth the money spent
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Dear so you think you can design a car better then Honda. If thats correct design one and i offer you RS 1 M for a 100% local Pakistani civic or even corolla equivalent provided it is assembled in a production line (Replicable).

    Sir on this I can only say you really need to work on you English skills as I neither commented on the design nor suggested some changes in Civic. Rather I have mentioned in my post that I own a civic.

    Cheers..

    I am also having 8 generation Civic, I suggest to change the tyres to YOKOHAMA (JAPANESE). I am also using yoko. The drive of my car is very smooth.

    Well i just changed tires in my civic and got yokohama db.
    Regarding current tires and rims, depends on the mileage on those. If they are totally new and 100 to 200 KM used then those tires can go for something like 18k or 19k.

    Brother i can give you a good advice, don't change tyres of your new Civic because they will run trouble free for years to come even if you are very much interested then go for Dunlop Digi ECO 195/65 R15 size...Its a great sporty tyre from Dunlop for Civic or City and i too got them installed on my new City one month ago and they are amazing and look incredibly beautiful!!!

    P.S leave Yokohama, nothing special in that brand or tyre and for shop go to Weldon Tyres and Alloy Rims, Murree Road, Rawalpindi...The owner is my father's close friend so i always go to him for changing tyres or rims whenever i buy a new car!!!
    For swift and gutsy response use CIVIC!!!
