Default Honda City : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

Hi,

I have booked ANHC and I am getting it on Wed. I wanted to know what alloy wheels I should go for and the tyre size also.

Any suggestions ?

Regards
Rajesh Devadas

Congrats on the ANHC! I hope you are going to share delivery pictures & an ownership report with the rest of us. The ANHC desperately deserves better rubber, Honda have intentionally under-tyred it so that published fuel efficiency numbers are maximised. Why? Simply because in terms of FE, the ANHC is not a match on the outgoing generation.

A 195 patch would be perfect, and maintain the cars chuckability & ride quality. If you want to go further, a 205 is the max. Remember, the quality of rubber is equally / more important as the size. If you care about looks & handling and are willing to compromise on ride quality, 205 on 16 inchers are killer.

205/55 R15

205/50 R16

Thanks for the replies!

Today I enquired about the alloy wheel with the dealer and he is quoting 11K per wheel. I knew it will be very high. I am planning to get it done outside. Any suggestion on the alloy wheel make ? In my earlier car Baleno, I used "Aura" which was pretty good.

I am confused about whether to go for only the alloy wheels or both tyres and wheel.

If budget is not a problem, of course you should upgrade the wheels & tyres together!! Some killer designs available in 15 inchers, just hunt around. It will make your ANHC stand out too from the rest too.

Default Tyre Size for New Honda City 2008?

Hey guys,
Just wanted to know,what are the upsizes possible for the new honda city 2008.
The stock tire size is 175/65R15.
I take it that 195/60R15 & 205/55R15 should fit well.
Also is 205/50R16 the correct upsize?
What all tires are available in these sizes?

All 3 sizes will work fine Abhimanyu. Lots of tyres available too in the 15" sizes, what specific size are you finalising?

Limited options in 205/50 R16 though:
Yoko S-Drive
Yoko A.Drive R1
