I OWN a Honda Civic 2.0 (March 2008) with a mileage of 34,000km.
The stock tyres are 215/45 17.
I plan to get a new set of tyres in a few months' time.
I prefer a more comfortable ride.
One option is to get a new set of 16
inch rims and non-low profile tyres.
Does it affect the speedometer?
What size of tyres do you suggest?
The other option is to retain the
rims and getting non-profile tyres.
What do you recommend?
When is the best time to change the tyres?
I am a sedate driver with a normal driving pattern.
You can use the 205/55 R16 or even 205/80 R15, provided you get wheels of the correct offset.
It very important that you get the correct offset or else you can have queer handling, especially on wet and uneven roads.
Your present tyres have what is called a tread wear indicator.
Once the tread has got down to the level of the indicator, you should replace them.
