Thumbs up

Awesome thread. Because of it I made up my mind and ordered 215/50R16 Dunlop Direzza DZ102 Ultra High Performance Summer tires and they are being installed tomorrow.

Cool

Just got them today and have only put a couple of miles on them. When I am able to get on the highway I will give a more detailed post. From what I felt today, the car initially felt heavier but as I kept driving it started to feel similar to how it used to. Still a little heavy though. I knew going into these that my mpg was going to drop and am certain that I will notice that soon. What I did notice is that my car did feel glued to the ground, which I love. These tires firmly attached themselves to the asphalt and are confident in doing so.

They also look great on the stock rims. They have the exact look I was going for and give the car a more aggressive look.

The price was great. $100 per tire and I was able to get in on a buy 3 get one free promotion.

So I put quite a few miles on it today and saw the MPG drop. The car does feel stuck to the ground even on turns, which I do like. It still feels really heavy and am just going to have to get used to it.

What is the current offset? 45 should be OK.

This is awesome info.

I am still just a prospective CRZ owner. My number one priority is good highway mileage, comfort. I suspect that if I do get one, when it is time to replace tires, I would like to go a bit taller. I am thinking 195/65/15. That is a gain of 2.2%

Does anyone have experience with this size? Any issues with making it difficult to launch as 1st would be taller? I have about 40 years experience with manual trannies, so I could live with it being a tad more difficult to launch. I would think that 6th would still be usable down to 35-40, no problem.

Another advantage is that it would raise the engine CO speed slightly. Would just have to remember to compensate for the low mph readings

the crz has plenty of torque down low to break traction with wider/stickier tires. you shouldn't have any issue with take-off from a stop in 1st. and yes, 6th should be no issue down at those speeds.

btw, i find the factory 16" on 195/55/16 to be plenty forgiving but are you planning on running 15" ?

pete, when Honda designed these cars, just like all the zillions of other cars out there, they had the same choices in tire/wheel sizes that we do. They picked the best compromise out of all those possiblities. Changing a tire size in hopes of "bettering" an aspect of a car's utility, unless you're going to a handling, cornering, or other extreme, is folly. Any "gain" you might think you'l attain with a different size won't be measurable.
