Thanks! And, is it worth it? The noise insulation on the City is definitely one of its weak points.

Oh yes.. 100%. I didn't go for 2.8mm as it might make doors heavier for my parents. Horn and damping are an absolute must as door sheet metal thickness in CITY are not up to RAPID/VENTO standard.

Tyre upsized as well as recommended by everyone, including guru GTO himself

My car's driver side door hinge has a problem I believe. When I try to open the door outwards, it makes a slight noise. Could this be due to door sag?

Yes, 2mm is enough. Rubberized underbody treatment will also help in reducing road noise.

Another must for me was a screen guard as the screen is a finger magnet.

Just needs some lubrication.

Re: The 5th-gen Honda City in India. EDIT: Review on page 62

Have booked a 5G Honda city (ZX CVT) in red color which will be delivered in a couple of days. Trying to decide on the tyre upgrade. 16" Lenso alloys look promising but looks like the wheels are 7J (the OE alloys are 6J). Will most likely go with Conti UC6 or Michelin Primacy 4 ST in 195/55/16 spec. Few questions related to this upgrade:

1. When replacing 6J wheels with 7J Lenso wheels, will the tyres bulge out of the wheel arches? Vendor informed me that it would not be the case with Lenso alloys.

2. Finding it difficult to pick between the two tyres (assuming cost is not a constraint) - Conti UC6 VS Michelin 4 ST. Any recommendations ? Only issue with Michelin is most of the vendors have only July-Nov 2021 stock.

3. Will there be any ride quality issues (car mostly used in the City) with this upgrade?

Thanks for any inputs

Re: The 5th-gen Honda City in India. EDIT: Review on page 62

Many Congratulations! As mentioned many times on this forum, one can't just go wrong with a City.

However, just curious to know the reason to upgrade to 205? is it for better tyre width? I guess, that probably explains the enhanced comfort. Possibly, attempt to upgrade to 195 using the same 6J, would not have been recommended, which, i guess is the reason to suggest wheel upsize as well. I may be wrong here though...

Regards.

Did you upgrade the Speakers and if so, to which ones?

Congrats! Wishing you many happy miles with your ride!

Had test driven the City Manual, but the low ground clearance and lack of power (got used to the turbo) and some features meant it had to be dropped off the list. Parents still rave about the rear space and comfort.

My Kia dealer did the same, so it's a common practice now amongst many dealers, I assume.

Congrats on your car
As i have mentioned earlier as well on this thread, i am running 205 michelin primacy 4st on stock zx rims without any hassles till date. I have covered 45k on the odo in almost 18 months. There are absolutely zero issues with ride quality, car feels more planted, compared to the undersized 185's

You can chose aftermarket alloys if you dont like the oem ZX alloy wheels, i did not change because i loved the looks of the oem alloys and 205's were a perfect fit on the same.

I also upgraded to 205/55 r16 UC6 on stock wheels.
Absolutely no issues.

No, the tiny STOCK speakers sound much better after damping.

I have 7J Lenso wheels and 205 Michelin tyres. In fact the vendor recommended to have 7J if I had to upsize the tyre to 205, as (according to him), 6J may cause the tyre to bulge. I have driven 1100 kms so far and I have no issues with it.

Thank you. Is it 205/55/16 or 205/50/16? And what tyres in 205? Continental?
