One other thing of mention, the wider Yokohama tires should last far longer than the junk Dunlop factory tires that I only got 40,000 miles out of. I had the Dunlop tires rotated on a regular basis, & most of those miles were highway.

Have these on my '06 Civic and the car handles very well though I would prefer a larger sidewall, something in a 60 or 65 series. Not going to change though since I just bought new sneakers in August and haven't even put 500 miles on them yet. Really like the 16" size but should have gone with the 60's...lesson learned for next time though I doubt I will be buying anymore tires for this car. At the rate I'm going, by it's 10th year, I won't even have 50k miles on her and by then, I'll probably be ready for a change anyways.

A reporter is looking for a subcompact car owner or shopper to weigh in on what kind of impact a sleeker design, like the "Furia" concept released in Detroit, would have on their purchase decision. If you own or are looking for a subcompact car, and think a sleeker design would impact which car you buy, please send your daytime contact info to predmunds.com no later than Monday, January 21, 2013 at 4 p.m. PT/7 p.m. ET.

Started a new part time job the last week of January and now have just over 40k on the clock...I drive 26 miles each way and though it's only a part time gig, the miles are starting to pile up on the Civic. But the 10 year plan is still in effect unless my son takes it which is a very real possibility! But any new vehicle I'd get would have to have 16" tires on it as tires any bigger than this get to be pretty expensive.
