Tire Rack recommends a 215/60R16 for its winter package - so I think that's a better choice.

I assume that is the standard size for the 4 cyl? I know on my 2005, it was 205/60-16 base, and the V6 had 215/50-17.
Instead of aftermarket, I would try to find someone looking to upgrade from the base 16". At least you won't have to worry about quality, or offset. And th VSA should not care.
for that, Isn't the bigger issue difference in diameter between the tires on the car?
I actually have 3 H rated and 1 V rated Yokohama on my 2005 (the V has 8K less on it) thanks to a rear tire that decided to disintegrate on the highway. Then again, I don't have VSA or even TC.

The 215 is 1/2 inch narrower and I am trying to gain as much sidewall height as I can without going too big is why I was looking at the 225.

If you want sidewall height go with 15's it won't effect your speedometer. I run 205 65 15 in the winter. Same diameter as my 205 60 16 summer tires. Put the snow tires on aftermarket alloys from tirerack. I like the extra cushion in the winter when roads are bad.
The base Accord tire is a 195 65 15 (on the DX model) and is slightly smaller.

That would work accecpt for the fact that 15 inch after wheel market selection is very small, even 16 inch limited. Now if you want 18 or 20 inchers, the sky is the limit.
#416 of 435 Best tires for 2011 LX-P
Dec 19, 2011 (5:47 am)
Just want to check with you all about replacing the Dunlop Sport 7000 AS's on my new 2011 LX-P. I don't like the tires at all. They are very noisy and tred life, from what I have read, is rather poor. I live in Puerto Rico so no snow or ice to worry about. I only have 6200 miles on the car but the ride and noise are not up to my standard. I think I would like to just go ahead and replace them now and sell the Dunlops used.
TireRack ranks these 4 as the best sellers. Any comments on which ones are the best in your experience is greatly appreciated. I'm looking for low noise and comfort / longevity as priorities.
General Altimax HP (Grand Touring All-Season) $97.00/Tire
Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring (Grand Touring All-Season) $132.00/Tire
Michelin Primacy MXV4 (Grand Touring All-Season) $135.00/Tire
Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H&V) (High Performance All-Season) $98.00/Tire

If you have a Discount Tire Store in your area, they have the 15 aftermarkets.
#418 of 435 Tires for 2000 Honda Accord Coupe EX V6
Dec 20, 2011 (11:12 am)
Hi...I'm in need of new tires for my 2000 Honda Accord Coupe EX V6. I have just over 100k miles on it. 5 years ago I used this forum to put Bridgestone Turanza's on, but after 45k miles, I've just about driven the rubber off them.
The size I need is 205/60/16 V-rated (I'm okay with sticking with the Honda speed-rating spec). I live in Central NJ, drive pretty aggressively, but only for about 9-10k miles/year (very short daily back-road commuting to work).
I am not looking for the cheapest tire or longest tread life, but do want something that has good, solid performance in dry/wet, light and/or deep snow and ice, and can also offer a comfortable ride/low noise.
Similar to the above poster, I've narrowed down my options based on size/speed requirements and reviews in Consumer Reports and TireRack to:
Dunlop SP Sport Signature
Goodyear Assurance ComforTred
Michelin Primacy MXV4
Pirelli P6 Four Seasons
Sumitomo HTR A/S P01
Yokohama AVID ENVigor
I was also interested in the Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S or Sport A/S, but neither is available in the sizing I need.
Thanks in advance for your help/advice/opinions!

Not sure where else you see them other than at BJs, but I have a set of BF Goodrich Advantage TAs in that size (on a 2000 Acura TL), and they have been very good so far, and excellent in bad weather (including snow, but that car is particularly good to start with).
very reasonable price, with a discount coupon.

I got rid of my Dunlops at 39K miles because of the ride and noise on my 08 LX. They did great as far as cornering and steering response. They still had decent tread left and wore evenly with regular rotations but got louder as the miles accumulated. I replaced them with the GY Comfortred Touring. I've put about 12K on them so far this year. They ride better and are quieter than the Dunlops. They aren't as responsive and don't take cornering hard as well either. If you are a conservative driver you won't even notice the difference though. I occasionally like to throw it around some curves and run it through the gears. The five speed MT makes the Accord a lot more fun to drive. All in all I think they are a good tire. No matter what tire you put on, the Accord will still be a bit noisy and ride a little hard. That's just the nature of the car from what I understand. The Comfortreds did help to tame it down a few notches because it's a grand touring tire vs the high performance Dunlop.
