    Default New Civic gets unbranded tyres !

    I was at Honda City Sales today, saw the new Accord and CRV, but also noticed the Civic there wearing some 'Euro Star' tyres instead of the usual Bridgestones (though still 195/65R15)

    A google search produced zero results for any such tyre brand.
    Otherwise i would have taken pictures/noted the country of origin. Lagta hai Honda Atlas is increasing prices and reducing costs?? Yeh kya scene hai!

    I have not seen the civic with Euro Star tyres but u must be right because I did see the add of Euro Star tyres in newspaper few days back. They specially mentioned the Honda Civic and the size (195 65 15). I believe Euro Star must be a cheap local company so u wont find it on the net. 2 lac price increase kar kay bhi quality kum kar rahay hain Honda Atlas walay.

    something serious should be done about all this 'cost cutting'.15 INCH TYRES IN accord and 36 lacks??
    Actually this is the thing what every brand does,they increase the sales and then reduce the quality,so its nothing new.

    Not sure about this tire brand.

    But General Tires are very durable. My 5 series has high performance summer Generals. Someone I know has an M5 with Generals as well. So far the ride quality is excellent and so is the cornering.

    haha yani ke wohi routine: take new car from showroom to petrol pump and then tire shop before going home

    I suspect this company must be owned by Honda officials like Atlas battery (AGS). Then soon the City would get Euro Star tires instead of General too

    @ a_k
    that link is to some London based garage

    nothing is wrong with AGS! But its owned by people working for Honda Atlas, hence all Honda Atlas cars get AGS batteries!

    @graybmws but we are talking about local General Tires, which hardly hold air, grip ka to sawal baad mein.

    a few days ago there was a notification in the news paper that these eurostars are maed specifically for the civic,... hopefully they are better than the currnet cr@p available in PK (generals)
