I am so confused. I have a two year old civic, 30,000 miles. i got some firestone tires on it (don't know model). they are the worst tires i have ever owned. slip whenever it is wet. plus, they have punctured three times. anyway, i have heard michalen (sp?) is the best. can someone reccomend, or tell me the difference between the x-one and the rainforce??

P185/65R14 85s is the size. Thanks!

I believe the Honda Civics come stock with the Firestone FR680 tire. A terrible tire. In general, car makers put poor tires on their new cars.....the X-One is an OUTSTANDING tire. The wet weather traction will be "night and day" compared to the Firestone garbage. Try Costco for this tire. They carry the X-Radial Plus which is the same tire as the X-One. These tires are worth the extra money.
