    ES100 is hard on suspension and ride.
    C drive is a safer bet

    Have tryed ES 100 on my two cars SE SALOON & VTI (new ones). its smooth and have grip but very harsh on suspension. its create trouble on rough and bumpy roads.
    Now I have equiped my one with 205/65/R15 on both. Its the best for all. Smooth, More grip and softest ride as driving on water. It will also increase ur cars hight. so the best i told U.
    Thanks.

    205 or wider tyres will only add discomfort and stiffness to the car because ull be forced to go for lower profiles. it will make the steering hard as well
    from your avatar pic, i assume ur still on factory fitted 15 inch Honda alloys so IMHO ur safe bet would be to go for some soft tyres keeping in view the Paki road conditions.
    all friends who are advising for 215 or wider tyre with 55/50 profiles are from UK or else, where there are good roads and no nasty bumps or potholes.

    consider the fillowing options
    Honda Civic Vti 2002-2006
    OEM tyre 185/65/R15
    Replacement suggestions from me:
    195/65/R15 or 205/60R15
    Yokohama C drive (comfort+handling+grip,slight noise on rough roads)
    Yokohama A drive (comfort+economy,grip slightly less)
    Yokohama A300 Aspec (silence+comfort+economy+wide avalibility, grip slightly less)
    Dunlop Digityre Eco 201
    Dunlop Lemans LM 702

    plz dont go for less known brands like nexxen,maxxis,falket,GT,firestone,BF goodrich etc. they are usually old tires and a replacement is hard to find if u need maybe a single piece later on

    A539..hmmm
    just got them off my civic after 35k km
    very impressive looking tyre with good grip, but noisy and hard for suspension. noise increases with age. 60 or 55 series A539s will make thing even worse.
