Default Tyres for NHC Vtec.

Planning to change the tyres as they have done 40k kms and the stock S322s are crap.

What do I go for? No budget but prefer Yokohama.
Am looking at the Advan Neovas(if they are available). They coe in 195/60-14. The stock size is 175/65 - 14.

YOkohama gives good discount for us dealers if we want to use it on our personal cars. Same goes for Michelin. So, I'm looking at either of these two brands.

No use on the stock engine. Too much drag and fuel efficiency will also go for a toss.

Go for 195/60-14 on your OE alloys. Do you get C.drive in that size? Else go for the PP2's.

Plan to do some light engine/performance upgrades soon. PP2s arent available in 195/60-14. Only PP.

I think 185/60 R14 PP2's would work well too.

S-Drives are not available for your car unless you wish to upgrade to 15".

So you say ditch the Yokos and go for the PP2s in one size smaller?

What I'm saying is if you want Yoko's in 14" you get either the ES100 or the Advan Neova's. 195/60 R14 Neova's IMO are massive overkill for your car. S-Drives are not available in the size(s) that you're looking at.

So, the next option is to look at Michelin's and again considering the performance of your car & the capabilities of the PP series, I would think 185/60 R14 PP2's would serve the purpose just fine.
