Tires For My Daily

Post by SteveMcQueen »

Looking for some input on tires for my daily, a 1998 Civic 4 Door. I have a set of 15 X 6.5 NEXO 5 spoke rims. The car comes with 185-65-14 tires. How much should I up size 195-55-15 or 205-50-15 or something else? Also any idea's on brands. Not looking for the best but something better than my old Multi Mile Matrix tires (apparently don't like Autocross much)

Well if you want your speedometer/odometer to be reasonably accurate then you want a 195/55/15. The 205/50/15 is slightly short and 205/55/15 is slightly tall. 185/60/15 is close, but not a common size.

In answer to a a cheap/quality tire I always recommend Champiros - or GT Radials if you prefer. They are also available pretty much anywhere because the local wholesale distributors carry them.

Champiro 328 if you want something that resembles a performance tire.

Champiro 128 if you just want a good wearing generic tire (cheaper too)

There's a million choices out there currently. I tend to just pick a price range and then pick the best looking tread pattern.
