I would like to get a slightly better handling tire...has anyone swapped out the factory tires for something else that they recommend?
I have an '06 Accord Sedan (EX, I-4) with the stock Michelins. I'll be replacing them with the tires I currently have on my '96 Accord Sedan (LX, I-4); Bridgestone G009 tires. They are a High-Performance All-Season tire. Still fairly comfortable, a bit noisier than some touring tires, but grip extremely well in the dry, and do just fine in the wet, too.
Just a suggestion!
Best of luck in your tire-shopping.

Thanks for this info. I'm curious, what color did you want and what color did you end up getting?
If i still lived in CA i would get blk on blk. I'm living in CO for now and i think road chips would be real obvious on this color. I've seen a couple here in town but not very many. A neighbor had a charcoal colored one with a spoiler, tint and fog lights and i went crazy every time i saw it.
I drove one about 2 weeks ago and and i was impressed. It's such a fast car. There are only a few things that set it apart like the wheels and red insert in the V6 emblem. I'd like the silver with grey interior but silver with black seems to be available far more than the color combo i'm looking for. I'm like you, i wanted one from the time i knew this set up was available.

I wanted the graphite pearl (probably the charcoal you're talking about?) and that's what I ended up getting. It has the gray interior, which I guess was my preference! I traded in an '01 Accord black on black, which looked nice, but I'm in FL, so the black interior got a little too hot. I remember the silver one that was in the Motortrend comparison a couple of years ago...that was a sharp looking car, and I don't think you can go wrong with the black interior.
I want the fog lights, but I'm having a hard time justifying the $250 plus installation for them! I've seen knock-offs on ebay for well under $100, but I've also heard that the wiring needs some modification, which is over my head and I'm not sure how much more that would add to professional installation. Has anyone had success with the JDM foglights or similar?

I love the graphite color, so much that I chose it!

This model of the Accord still looks very classy, nice looking. I really like that color too. A new model sometimes doesn't always look any better. This car will continue to hold its own.
I have always been impressed with the 4cyl Accord engine, I could imagine the V6 with a 6spd would be an excellent combination.
