New tyres for a 2011 Honda Civic

21st Dec 2020 11:00 am

I am looking into tyre brands such as Continental MC5, Michelin XM2 and Primacy 4ST. If Michelin

I am planning to replace all tyres of my 2011 Honda Civic and will stick to the standard size, 195/65 R15. Which brand I should choose? My usage is mostly in city conditions. I was looking into tyre brands such as Continental MC5, Michelin XM2 and Primacy 4ST. If Michelin, what is the difference between XM2 and Primacy 4ST?

The Continentals, in our experience, seem to have a softer sidewall and hence are prone to sidewall damages or cuts. In this regard, the Michelins would be a better choice. If your running is mainly within city limits, you could opt for the XM2s, but if it’s on highways, the Primacys would be a preferable option.
