My humble request. Please stop misguiding people on selection of tyres especially for city.
What the concept of "Shair Ki Zindagi Jiyo" "Looks of my car" can be a big problem for some other person. and may even spoil his driving experince of a new car.
Let me ask you a question, did you log into EPS unit and measured the increase in current cosnumption after you selected 195?? Did you evaluate how extra stress you put on the EPS and increase the possibilty of heating it during palming conditions (Link) ??
Or even better, did you had to goto Honda to recallibrate the EPS, compensating additional turn resistance while providing same feedback to user??
I have played with all and I am not talking based on theory. All this is partially applicable to HPS because it can handle extra stress. For EPS, care must be taken. Yes, the EPS has built in safety's. But my question is, do you really want to drive you EPS unit to limits??
In actual, not all is true. Due to insanely huge tyre selection (be it in terms of width or profile), the handling becomes a mess and un-predictable. Yes, good grip, good braking. But no better handling. Then comes the question, how much good grip one is aiming for. Will the person risk driving under hydroplaning every time he turns the key, or will there be conventional tarmac in majority of driving conditions??
For rest of the users, if you want your answer, please review the below thread where I had to sell only 10k Km driven 195's in favor of 185. The steering gets pretty hard.
And not only that, you'll have pretty tough time while continuous centering the steering on highway speeds. No camber/Toe adjustment will self center the car.
