Michelin has only two tyres for mainstream passenger cars. Michelin XM2 and the Primacy 3 ST. Both are available in different sizes and both are good.

Default Re: Honda Civic : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

hi, i recently bought a 2007 AT Civic and the previous owner, I guess has changed the tyres in 2012 as I can see from the date on all the 4 tyres. They are MRL ZV2K tyres. I can see surface cracks on both the front tyres and also can hear road noise. Are the surface cracks, 5 years old and road noise normal ? because the tyre is still left with descent amount of tread and they are otherwise in good shape.

If I want to change, i would like to upsize it to 205 65 r15 and a big dealer in Chennai is quoting an attractive price of Rs. 4500 per tire for Goodyear Assurance Duraplus 205 65 r15 and he assures a recently manufactured one. Is it required to change it now or better to pull on for some more time ?

Any other options for Civic at this price range ? since my running is low, i am not willing to plonk too much money, but i would like to have descent reliability in both wet and dry conditions, reduced road noise and durable. Kindly advise. thanks.
