    Default HONDA CIVIC 97 tyre suggestions plz ..

    hi guys ... hope y'all are doing good ..
    actually, i dont know if this issue was addressed before or not.. plz excuse my posting another post here ...

    i currently have size 15 tyres installed on my 97 civic. there are two problems which need to be addressed..
    1. the tyres are totally variable in size (the rear ones are 185/65/15 and the front ones: Left is 185/60/15 & Right one is 195/65/15) the other problem is that today my tyre dealer told me that the tyres need to be changed now..
    i personally am more interested in getting the original factory recommendation size i.e., 185/65/14. some people told me that getting the original 14 size tyres would actually make the car lighter and thus, attain a better gas mileage too..

    i am not able to decide yet what to do..

    i would request the experts in this forum to kindly suggest me regarding the following two questions

    1. should i get the factory recommended 185/65/14 size?
    2. i am trying to find out the genuine/original honda rim and get rid of these KACHRAA alloy rims. is it a good decision? I am getting 12000 paid for my 15 size rims and the original 14 size honda rims are being sold to me in 17000. should i go for this ???
    3. plz suggest me some good tyres.. i was thinking of michlen energy but my tyre dealer told me that its the best, but these days its all coming fake. the genuine one is very hard to find. he is suggested me an import one (thats what he called it as) yokohama db... i have had excellent experience with yokohama for the townace i owned.. please suggest me guys ..

    this is the exact rim that um looking for
    brother just try to find 195 55 r 15 this the perfect size for ur car in 15" rims dont do for inch down it want matter if u find the right size for ur car.
    and michelin isnt hard to find even imported ones.dont mind ur tyre dearler dont have it that's why he is making stories.
    they are the impoter of michelin in Pakistan call them ask who is their dealer in ur city.

    ok brother ...
    i was going through the forums ... and the idea i have got now is that they are recommending to buy the new tyres way more than the used ones ...

    wanted to ask about which brands come with the warranty??? i heard, so far, michelin energy and maxxis come with 3 yrs or 100,000km warranty... is it true ??

    and what would you guys suggest me to use with civic 97??
    yokohama db?
    bridgestone?
    michelin energy?
    or pirelli???

    i have had worst experience with dunlop ...

    plz reply back

    i know about maxxis .. as i got the maxxis tyres installed on mehran (my nana's) and the warranty card also shows 3yrs or 100,000 kms warranty.. but people told me that maxxis isnt good in bigger vehicles like civics and corollas... in michelin, i just called a guy at islamabad and he told me that one is energy saver and other is something like xm... xm is bit expensive comparatively ...
    he said it comes with a warranty of 1 yr...

    what is the difference btw import and smuggle... isnt it the same????
