Jay - I told you to avoid them earlier also. Anyways, there's no point going in for the GSD3's either, they aren't much better than the 2's in the noise & ride aspect.

KP - Met him today at Anoop uncle's shop by chance. He was even more confused than ever!!

Usually takes them a while to turn noisy, from what some users have told me. Strange it was noisy from day 1 for you. But I guess if you compare a performance tyre to a comfort tyre, the road noise will definitely be more (PP2's may be an exception... very low noise levels).

Will the tyre dealer (not Ishaan ) take these back and replace'em with something else?

While the F1's are noisy. My experience was somewhat contrary to yours. I switched from relatively new 185 NCT5s that were 12K kms old to 195F1 GSD2s on my Baleno.

- They were positively quieter for the first 5K or so kms. (I've run 12K on them now)
- The ride was surely better than the NCT5s (I used to have 28psi for the NCT5s and 30psi for the F1s).
- Grip is pretty adequate. I don't do tyre-squealing turns/corners though.
- Grip in the wet is very good. Much better than the NCT5s.
- Braking improved too.
- Steering did become heavier.

They are among the softest tyres I guess, with a tread-wear rating of 200 and will probably wear out faster too. NCT5, PP2, GIII IIRC are 240. F1GSD3 is 280.

I know eagle F1 do create noise but i've been told it will create noise after 15k kms but that's not true, it's noisy from day one, maybe i've got used tyres that why i'm facing problem(Manufacturing date 1706) ? anyways i'll change them & dealer will definitely take them at lesser price .

how about this one - Goodyear Nct 205/65/15 ?

Why? Sticking to stock is a more wise option. One size wider NCT5's would be hardly any better than the stock ones.

NCT-5 are very quite & i barely notice any noise when car window is rolled down but in F1 even with a/c on & you can still hear noise , i must say there's no contest between NCT-5 & F1 when it comes to noise NCT-5 are noiseless as compared to F1 .

Does upgrading stock 195/65/15 (good year) to 205/65/15 (MXV8 or so)make any sense ?. Interms of driving comfort and breaking.

I am planning to retain my Civic for atleast 5 yrs

The tyres of my dad's Honda Civic are due for replacement now.
He wants to keep the stock rims, but is OK with a wider footprint.

Dad doesnt have any problem with the current OE Bridgestones , and wont mind putting back the same ones.

I am keen on putting the Yokos as I have heard a lot of good things about them from BHPians.

Which of the Yokohama series is best for Highway driving and absolutely minimal tyre-noise?
I am thinking of putting size 205/60 R15 on stock alloys.
Any other suggestions, will 205/60 alter speedo error or sterring response? If yes, please suggest another size.

Also, who is the official Yokoham dealer in Kolhapur? I would not prefer a grey market piece.

from 195/65.
205/60 is a good upgrade option.
Rest confirm with Mr Ishan Raghava ( iraghava) Our tyre wala.
