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

Hi Folks,

I have upgraded my 4th Gen Honda City tyres from stock to 195/60 R15 at 46000 kms . The ODO now stands at 76000 plus kms . How to get the actual kms covered after the upgrade ? Also is it possible to get the ODO corrected ?

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

Hi Everyone,

I own a 2019 Honda City VX CVT petrol.

I have been using the Bridgestone 185/55/R16 stock tyres until now.

I would like to upgrade them to 195/55/R16 as that would give me a slightly larger sidewall as compared to 205/50/R16.

My driving is mostly city and highways, but there are some road trips I do where I go through really bad patches of road.

Would like your input in terms of choosing a company for the tyres. I have read a lot of posts and gone through many videos and the tyres coming up are:

1) Michelin
2) Yokohama
3) Continental

What about Pirelli?

I'm looking for comfort, low noise, not prone to punctures and hopefully long lasting.

Would love to hear your inputs.

Also has anyone tried 205/55/R16? The deviation is 3.58% which is above the recommended 2% but I want to understand if anyone upgraded it to this size and faced any issues with it?

Also with such large deviations how to configure or reset the odometer as per the new tyres?

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

My 2016 City Ivtec is currently running 195/60/15 Michelin P4ST changed when the odo read 40,000 in my stock XM2s(175/65/15). After the upgrade to 195 section, I felt an improvements in steering handling and had more planted ride. The stance was also improved. Now my odo reads 77,000 km and my P4STs are done and I found them to lose tread earlier than my stock, but amazing road grips even now in my last trip in the 40 bends of Valparai Hills.I am looking for an immediate tyre upgrade. I am sticking to the same size 195/60/15 but I am confused between Vredestein Ultra and MRF Perfinza. Kindly need help to choose. Thanks in Advance.

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

I have recently i.e. 10 days back upgraded my Honda city 2015 tyres from the stock 175/65 R15 to MRF Perfinza 195/60 R15 after doing a lot of research and reading almost all the reviews here on Team Bhp too .

As for tyre pressure, I would like to know what tyre pressure is being used by other members with this size of tyre.

I had first kept 33 front and back then reduced to 32 front and back but found the ride quite uncomfortable with the bang of the suspension on the bad and uneven road here in mumbai city which was quite uncomfortable.

I have come to understand tyres also need a run in and a highway drive in the plan soon too...

Now have reduced it further to 30 front and back the ride is more planted and comfortable. A bit of bang and sound still exists at certain times.

After the tyre change the braking confidence is two fold positive compared to before. The grip is excellent while driving and road noise has reduced considerably. The cornering too at speed also gives comfidence as compared to before.

My car came with Goodyear assurance from factory replaced all four at 210000 odd Kms to Bridgestone ecopia that lasted well till now car odo 46100 kms. ( spirited driving and mostly highway driven )

I stick to alignment every 5000 kilometes and balancing every 10000 kilometers.

Honda's recommendation with the stock tyres is 32 psi for the front and 30 psi for the back, but with the upgraded tyres, I have found a comfortable ride at 33psi front and 31 psi on the rear tyres. Needless to add, these are cold tyre pressures before driving off. You may like to check if they work well for your tyres.

But, as things stand, I would say that this so called upgrade doesn't feel like one.
Unlike some products which turn out to be 'meh' once the newness wears off, I'm starting to like these tyres as I use them more. I've posted my revised impressions in the Perfinza thread:

I zeroed on MRF Perfinzas 195/60 R15


Will post further observations in future.
Changed tires @ 47k km

Hitting 87k km ...

the car has run on perfinzas for about 40k km and still the tread is holding good. ( 90pc highway)

As far as I see, I am incredibly satisfied with the performance ( barring one tire that got pinhole puncture on the sidewall which had to be replaced - bad luck )

Regardless, having done a few insane triple digit speeds, the grip levels have been amazing and confidence inspiring ( on well laid open Highways) . The riding comfort and noise have sufficed my needs.

For travellers who often take highway drives, perfinzas offer great performance .
