    Default Civic 2009 Tyres and rim question

    Hi guys ,

    I just purchased Civic Reborn 2009 model and its tyres are in bad condition and i need to change em out ...

    I have read few threads but actually i dont know the tyre sizes ...

    I am planning to change tyres in a week and need suggestions :

    Which brand to go with , which size ?

    Wider tyres make any difference in road grip ?



    Thanks

    Now that you need new set anyway, i would say go for 205/65R15 size tires, going to look better plus a more cushioning ride on bad road surfaces. I have been using this size tires from day 1 on civics and i love it.

    No, actually what you get with your showroom new civic are locally manufactured eurostar tires sized 195/65R15, which in all honestly and as you would know are crap at being a tire. Now going for 205mm tires do mean that you going to have to spend a little a bit extra over 195mm tires but that wouldn't be so much so that its going to put you off of them. I recently purchased two brand new 205mm dunlop LM 704s for 16000rs and man those are some awesome tires, the amount of grip and comfort i get is i would ideal for me and for my civic 2011 oriel. Keeping aside all the above points i think 8th and 9th gen. Civics deserve atleast 205/65R15 sized tires.

    205/65 R15 will have a slight effect on fuel economy and off course more grip is the positive side.
