    I recently got Dunlop 195/65's for my GLi, and put me back around Rs10,000! I'm amazed that the grip has considerably improved from 195/60, and the braking is also better!

    If you havent installed the tyres yet then
    My recommendation Yokohama C drive 195/65 R 15
    (Toyota Japan Recommended size)

    i have yokohama C-Drive 185/65/14. (recommended size for rear wheels). u can check this on the inside of the front right door.
    pretty smooth comfortable drive. yesterday i came across a situation where i had to apply hard brakes at 80km/hr at constitution avenue. car stopped well before.

    road grip is good with no effect on consumption.

    My dear Sir, action is better than contemplation. If you keep using you General tyres they will sell at lower price where as new tyres will cost you the same sooner or later. Just a brotherly advice. Recomended size for Corolla here in China is 195/65/14 or 195/60/15. I think it should be same in Pakistan.

    @Alcapone... did u notice quieter drive after changing to yokohama? In my experience, general tyres are noisier but can you confirm

    Secondly, someone mentioned on an earlier post that general tyres are harder so they take longer time to wearout and no side punctures... whereas yokohama are softer tyres so will wear out in about 50 - 60,000km plus they are more prone to punctures...

    since u use yokos, i bet u can clear this up.

    @mics420
    In Pakistan is 185/70 R 14
    Toyota Japan In Corolla S Recommended Company tyre for stability and control is 195/65 R 15

    @asd123
    I am using Yokohama C-Drive 195/65 R15 in my new corolla 2.0D saloon 2006.Road grip, braking ,high speed stability is excellent. Go to Khan Tyres in Melody and get a good Deal dont deteriorate the value of cheap quality general tyres by driving on them

    @khashraf
    yes general tyres are hard and there bridges wear out slower but they get hard in 6 month/6000-10000km and start slipping on hard braking,light rains thus can result in serious damage.Yokohama has a life span of about 60000km-80000km,depends on your driving style and conditions.There is no feature of hardness until 45000km(a little loss in grip).The dunlop gets hard around 20000km.Have experience with P 9000 series.

    kashraf; no tire and i can guarantee that no tire lasts more than 30k kms. im talking abt the best performance. even after 20k the tires start to weaken.
    actually its better to change the tires at 30k, u can get around 2k for old ones if not damaged.

    c-drive is a very quiet tire. no noise atall.

    @khashraf
    30000km is a lot for general tyres ,around 2000-3000 if bridges still in better condition or then 1000-1500 for worn ones
