I recently changed my Honda City tyres to Michilin 185 / 60 R 15 from General 165 /60 R 13.During my first long journey I observed more then normal tyre noise. Other then that there was no abnormality. Please advise if this change is OK?
model??approax speed at which u observed this problem?were the tyres properly inflated??
ever checked a tyre website?they give "noise level" rating for a reason
the michelins are hard tyres and they are going to give u noise,,,,,,same was the case when i put Good year in my city,,,,,a lot of noise was introduced but the grip and the handling improved a lot.
Yokohama DB series are the best in case of noise and softness. Yokohama A539 will also prove good but you must find japanese tires. I am using the same in my Steermatic, all thanks to pakwheeler who helped me get those.
Thanks for all the helping replies. Is the change of rim size from 13 to 15 OK?
I GOT 15" RIM IN MA HONDA CITY 2007 AND THE TYRE SIZE IS 185,55,15 AND I AM ENJOYING MA RIDE VERY MUCH
15" rim is ok as it is standard in steermatic.
