195/65R15 car tyre reviews

We try out 15 sets of small-car size 195/65R15 tyres, including models from Dunlop, Goodyear, Yokohama and more.

Last updated: 31st May 2010

The tyre size 195/65R15 (see How to read a tyre for what the numbers mean) is used on a number of popular small cars such as the Ford Focus (our test car), Honda Civic, Kia Cerato, Mazda 3, Toyota Corolla and the Volkswagen Golf. We test 15 tyres, priced from $125 to $186 each, to tell you which perform best for:

  • braking performance in dry and wet conditions
  • cornering performance in dry and wet conditions
  • noise.

We'd like to thank Morgan Park Raceway in Warwick, Qld, for ensuring a smooth test, and Ford for generously loaning us the test vehicle, a Ford Focus LX.
