My experience with Continental MC5 was good and the tyres lasted for around 50k kms before I changed to a new set and it could have still continued for another 5-10k kms. MC5 does not have soft rubber so it isn't too prone to punctures though I did face couple of them which is normal for mix of highway and rough road conditions. I never had any major issue with MC5 and the highway performance with grip and handling was decent. I have recently switched to Continental UC6 and the initial feedback has been good. UC6 are bit more silent however road grip wise both are similar.

However, sticking to 15 in hers and going the 195/60R15 route will offer you a more comfortable ride. 195/55R16 in itself is quite damage prone (though itís better compared to 185/55 or 205/50), and you only have to see the ownership threads of Baleno, Ciaz and i20 to see how across brands this is a problem.

If you regularly ply on not so good roads, I would insist that you stick with your 15 inchers and upsize to 195/60R15.


I was thinking of putting 6.5JX16 Momo Revenge alloys on Honda City 4th Gen(2022) along with Continental UC6 205/55R16. Would that be too much of a deviation?

Re: 4th gen. Honda City : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

Hi guys - I have a weird situation that I need advice on.
My 4th gen city came with Goodyear tyres that i swapped out in 2021 with 4x Michelin XM2s and kept a Goodyear as spare. Then i came across a killer deal on a Yokohama Bluearth AE50 (under 4k!) and replaced it as my spare. Now the Yoko AE50 has spent 2 years in the boot (unused) while the XM2s have run ~4k kms.
Would it be wise to put in the 1 Yoko as one of the tyres (front) on my next rotation or should I keep it as the spare unused? This would mean a 3x XM2 + 1x Yoko AE50 configuration.

I wouldn't put one tyre alone with a different pattern if I have a choice. I always get a set of 4 tyres and the best one from the previous set becomes the spare, and follow 4 tyre rotation.

What exactly was your plan when you got a single brand new Yokohama as spare?

I wouldn't recommend one tyre of a different pattern to be your regular tyre. Rather, you can continue to use it as a spare and for emergency use only.

Re: 4th gen. Honda City : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

Hello Bhpians,
My car has almost done 90000 kilometres and is due for tyre change.
the stock tyres were bridgestone b250 which were changed at 45000Km. The second set is Yokohama Bluearth AE50 (195/60 R15), which are serving nicely with zero punctures till date(last 4 years).
The only complaint I have with Bluearth AE50 is they have become hard and noisy.
Can you guys suggest me good set of tyres which are comfortable and quite ?
Thanks,
Pravin

Hi Pravint,

Michelin P4ST is one of the best tyres available in the market for this size offering the most comfortable and quietest ride, but finding a set with recent manufacturing date is a tough task.

Alternatively, you can go for Continental UC6 or the newly launched Vredestein ULTRAC.

Re: 4th gen. Honda City : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

Does anyone have feedback on MRF Perfinza for the City?

I have it on my City (2018, IDtec) and been running for about 40k km and the tread wear is comparably lower and can easily last 10 to 15k km more ( notwithstanding my majority highway runs ).

The Perfinzas offer great grip especially in wet conditions and are more VFM than Michelin PST series .

My next set of tyres are also Perfinzas, unless there's a better alternative in this range.

Great to hear that! How would you rate them on ride quality and noise?

I changed my 2019 City's tyres to Perfinza (195/60R15) yesterday with the primary objective being an improvement in ride quality. Just for reference, my earlier tyres were MRF-ZVTV in 175/65R15 and had run ~19k.

As far as I can feel, I DO NOT see any substantial improvement in ride quality. It wouldn't have taken much for me to say there is an improvement as I was "looking for" a justification for throwing away tyres which had more than half of tread life left in them.

There is a possibility that the new tyres take some Kms to breakin or the folks at tyre shop overinflated it. Will get it checked and report back.

But, as things stand, I would say that this so called upgrade doesn't feel like one.

Bought these for my 2014 City iDTEC in March 2023 and already ran 12k+ Kms on these (changed when the odo was at 156k Kms and ran 168k Kms till date).

Pretty impressed with the grip it offers. Ride quality is decent and I hope it'll last for another 40-45k Kms if driven well.

Even after doing 12k Kms in 3 months, the tyres still look new.

Re: 4th gen. Honda City : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

Hi Folks,

I have Honda City Petrol which is currently running on Michelin XM2+ (changed at 45000km ). The ODO reading is currently 76000 Km . I am planning to change the tires after another 5000 kms . My primary preference is Michelin but it has become very difficult to source the XM2s and PSTs .

So I am planning to switch to UC6 or Vredestein Ultrac . How good is the Ultrac in terms of comfort ? I am currently running on 195/60 r15 size .

Also between UC6 and UltraC which is closer to Michelin in terms of comfort and wet surface performance ?

Since I moved from Bridgestone OEM tyres -175/65 to 195/60, the ride quality certainly improved. But the ride is not noiseless but liveable.

Re: 4th gen. Honda City : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

This query is directed at all mathematically inclined Team BHPians : what is the multiplier one should use for arriving at
(a) the mileage in km,
(b) the correct fuel economy (km/l)
after having upgraded from the standard Honda fitted tyre to the 196x60 ? I understand that the circumference of the tyre changes and hence though the RPM is the same, the distance covered varies as the circumference of the tyre is different.
