Im looking in for tyres for Corolla, should I go in for 195/60/15 or 195/65/15 ?
My main concerns are ride quality, less noise & FE.
I have asked for 195/65/15 because the tyre well in the Corolla is quite deep & smaller/low profile tyres do not look good.
Which Yoko tyre would suit my requirements?

@bhp, look at the Yoko C Drives. I believe they are more comfort oriented tyres.
We had both sizes on our corolla, without any major change in mileage or anything.
65 has a higher profile, which should improve ride quality.

Thanks Lambo, C-Drive is a comfort oriented tyre? As sporty handling tyre is not a priority!
Any idea about prices?
Which are the other Comfort oriented Yoko's?

Can anyone tell me where I can get Yokohama Advan in Bombay? I'm looking for 225/50 R15.

Lots of dealers carry Yoko. Saifee & Premji's are two names that come to mind.

P.S. That size is not available in Advan's, you can get 205/50 R15.

Are you sure that size isn't available? Is it available at all in Yokohama? They are required for a 250 bhp Civic. What do you suggest?

Yeah, absolutely sure about that. You'll have to go in for 225/45 R17 on new rims if you want 225-width Advan's.

Otherwise, 225/50 R16's in Michelin PP2 are an option. 225's in 15" are not available for the Civic apart from the BFGoodrich G-Force Sport's.
