      Unhappy Honda City 2010 Suspension Very Stiff

      My car suspension is now very stiff. I can feel small stone on the road.
      Because of this i m using low pressure on tiers.
      Using 195/60 R15 Micheline Primacy 3ST Tyre 4000 km done. Is that Tyre problem?

      The tyres are actually suited more towards comfort. So your tyres aren't the only issue.

      The suspension by itself is stiff in the ANHC. How many kms has your car clocked now? Not really sure what you can do to make your suspension soft, as you don't have any aftermarket options available.

      Hasn't it been this way from day 1?

      If you run very low pressure or flat tires, you can feel all stones on the road. Hope thats not the case.

      Did you fit wider or low profile tyres?

      Fitting wider tyres and lower profile does give a more uncomfortable ride and heavier steering. Go back to stock and see if it gets better. In my old car the stock 205/75/15 tyres were replaced with 225/55/16 and steering was heavier and suspension stiffer. Road noise increased and uneven road surfaces were easily felt and heard.
      My present car of the same kind is kept stock is a dream to drive compared to my old one.

      Could you please inform the date of manufacture of the tires, Tires age with time and get hardened.
      What is the value of "low pressure" that you are maintaining in the new tires?
      Honda city with 4 or 5 adults will go down drastically and added with lower tire pressure can cause underbody scrapings.
      195/60 R15 is a usual upgrade for better handling and grip and Michelin Primacy is a soft compound tire that should give a smooth ride.
