Re: Honda City : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread
Well, the City is no longer my daily drive, it is now driven by our chauffeur, but on weekends I drive the car regularly. My regular drive now is a VW Polo GT TSI, but even on that new car, on the very next day after purchase I got the stock Goodyear 195/55/R16's changed to the Continental MC5.
That obviously says a lot, that I am very impressed with the MC5s. In the last 8-10 years, I have used, on 4-5 different cars, several Michelins (initially very very soft), Yokohama A-drives, Bridgestone Turanza ER60's and now the Continental MC5's. The general impression is that the MC5's stand out significantly.
I like them because of
I have posted elsewhere that on the XM1's, on sudden application of brakes, the City engaged the ABS quite a few times. After the switch to the MC5's, this has not happened even once with me.
I'd mention one particular thing about them though. The MC5's need, in my view, a longer break-in period than most other tyres I am familiar with in the last 10-15 years. They need, in my opinion, about 1000 kms to completely break in, while many other tyres would need about 200-500 kms for that.
