    Default Best tyres for honda civic

    Hey guys, I've got a 2012 honda civic and its about time to change its tyres. Currently I've got 195/65/r15 Michelin XM2 Energy tyres. They have served me pretty good for the last 62k kms so I wanted to ask that whether I should replace them with the same or is there any new tyre which is of the same level as the Michelin? Thanks in advance.

    XM2, advan dB and cc5 are all good variants. If you're happy with xm2, stick to them. All are available for 36-38k for a complete set

    Im using cc5 205/65 profile. Absolutely loving them. If you by any chance plan to get cc5, opt for the malaysian made tires rather than german.

    I have malaysian ones, pretty good rubber. However, I was looking for german tyres thinking that they will be better. Why would u advise against them? Just wondering...

    German cc5 is even softer than malaysian one. Specially its walls. It has a very short life on our roads. Its side wall has tendency to get ruptured upon contact with anything sharp and you know how our majority of roads are.

    So the unavailability of german stock a few months back has been a blessing in disguise for me. Thanks man.

    Would increasing the profile of the tyre affect in any negative way like in performance or fuel consumption?

    I recommend you stick to the oem profile i.e. 195/ 65. Although your ride will be smoother/ soft in the city with 205/65, however, at speeds above 70 km/hr the cornering/ handling of the car is affected. Moreover, fuel economy is affected too. Also I personally don't like the tyre wall buldge with 205/ 65 R15 becomes unsmart

    I mean, jo tyre ka pait nikla hota hai... woh wala bulging. It looks good to me.
    I am not commenting/arguing on technical grounds.

    Such a small difference of tire width plays almost no role in fuel efficiency, handling or performance. And fyki, the 205/65/15 cc5 is almost 60% of the weight of oem euro craps and many other tires out there.
    And, id like to add more. In thailand, same civic comes with 16" and 17" rims. 205/65 is a piece of cake for this car.

    Muzammil i think we should comment logical. Increase in tire width and dia than oem size does affect fuel efficiency & performance. Its a proven fact.
    With 16 inch oem rim the oem tire size is 205/ 55 not 205/ 65.
    And I dont know which cake you are talking about, what all and sundery know is that european cake is the most expensive and best in performance.

    Mr neat and tidy (your profile shows that as your name). I know the size is 205/55 in 16".
    You take a 16" oem rim with 205/55 and a 15" oem rim with 205/65.
    The 15" would still be lighter.
    And even. If you take 15" rim of a civic with oem size euro crap, and the same another rim with 205/65 cc5. The rim with cc5 will be lighter in weight. So yeah. Other senior members would agree to this, if not you atleast.
    And we are not talking about dia here. We are doing a 195/65/15 vs 205/65/15. And in this case for a 9gen civic.

    And please note. Its not just the dia or the width that matters. Weight of tire plays an important role too.

    Bro here we are advising Osama whether he should continue with 195/ 65 Michelin xm2 or else. He is quiet satisfied with them. So my suggestion based upon tech facts is that he should again have michelin with the same profile.
    Moreover for info 195/ 65 R15 dia is smaller than 205/ 65 R15. and the above comparison i drew above is correct.
    Kindly correct me technically.
