    I second Faizan. I just installed Continental CC5 (German tyres made In Malaysia ) from Islamabad and hit the highway to drive back to Karachi and my God are they a treat to ride in. The most amazing tyres I have ever installed in my cars. The road grip is fantastic, the braking distance has decreased exponentially, install them with your eyes closed.

    For another recommendation, go for 205/65R15 in your reborn as it gives a better ride and the car underbody no longer hits speed bumps. Continental all the way buddy.

    Actually the original size of the civic 8th gen is 205/65/R15 across the world only we have 195/65/15. The fuel economy shouldn't be affected that much, I did 15.5km/l in my 2007 8th gen on the Islamabad to Karachi highway all along in the 205s.

    As for the wearing out, I'm not sure about that as for the CC5 coz I just bought them 1 week ago as it all depends on the roads you travel on, how good you take care of the tyres and all from the potholes and how much air you put in them etc.

    205 doesn't make any noticeable effect on economy.
    In my experience Cc5 were done in 50k.
    But before that yoko db I used for 60k then installed them on my corolla, used for another 15k, they still had some life so now using them in spare tyres :-P

    I was quoted 8500 for 205/65r15 Yokohama A.Drives. The 205s were installed by the previous owner but methinks they are just a handful apparently rotational dia is affected by 3% and the grip level can be compensated for by installing a better rubber compound tire while remaining within OEM specs vs increasing width...
    Apparently Hondas don't react so nicely to deviation from OEM tires...according to forums

    Welcome anytime.

    Hmm...Interesting. I actually didn't feel any issues having 205s in the car. Actually I had a better experience grip wise, drive wise, brake wise (wet and dry both), and body roll wise. The main issue I had with the 195s were that it used to scrape the speed bumps whenever a second person sat in the car but after the 205s never did it. I had no intention of installing any spacers in the car which causes a lot of issues with body roll.

    Yup your right but those are 205/55r16. Rotational dia is the same as in 195/65r15. For 15s to have the same rotational dia you would need 215/55r15. Which would be too expensive and overkill for day to day driving.
