Hi guys. I have a Honda City gm6 2014 v spec. Want to know 16mm or 19mm Ultra racing anti roll bar works better for my car as i feel the car floating during highway drive. My car is all stock and tyre is cc6. I am not a fast driver and I just want my car to be stable when I am on highway.
go get ur suspension and tires check. Steering feel very light ?

All 3 of these are on-par with each other. All same. Got budget upgrade to PS4 Michelin.

My jazz full stock on Potenza Re003 went 160km/h still stable. Steering wise is abit on light side. Because I always drive wira with heavy steering so for me jazz steering is very light. Hahahahahha
But i have heard re003 dont grip really well in wet road but i have never used it before so i cant comment much on it.

Ok let's break down this sentence a bit.

You driving in the soaking wet rain and you want to go 140km/h? If not and you're going a more sensible 90km/h then the RE003 is plenty good. Most people will never really be able to fully utilize a UHP tyre so unless your driving skill is that good (and I'm not saying it isn't, maybe it is), the RE003 is a pretty decent tyre. If you're comparing side by side with other water-type-thingy tyres then RE003 isn't as good as the PS4 or the Goodyear Assymetric 3.

But then again like you've discovered, Michelin and GY don't make tyres your size. So you'll have to give and take on some things here and there.

If comfort is what you want go for either one of the earlier 3 tyres you said. If performance is what you want get something with harder sidewalls. But do something about that floating first I guess.

Wet grip is not well when the tread is around 20~30% lah~ Normal drive heavy rain I drove is around 120km/h also no issue.
But I don't encourage drive fast at rain la.
Now even have Re004 better wet grip. You can go and check out 1st

Your choices are abit weird. XM2 is comfortable, soft. TR1 is UHP but drives like shit worse than ATR Sport but wet is better (I have used about 4 sets of ATR Sport, 1 set of TR1). UC6 sounds expensive.

Find RE003 or 004, or PS3/PS4. These are guaranteed good tyres.

Btw, the calculator seems to say 6JJ can take 205.

Conti tyres, don't get way laid by their name. UC6 as in Ultra Contact sound powerful but actual in between CC (comfort) and MC (Max). Max is below PC (Premium) then only comes CSC (Sports) Now got EC (Extreme contact). FC (Force contact) is their Extreme category tyres.....lol

205 on 6JJ depends on the series too. If 45 series 6.5JJ is min, if 50 series then can. This is due to sidewall bending in as 205 is roughly 8 inch wide already ....

So I can actually install 205/50/r16 to my car?
