Are the Falkens "V" rated? I am not too familiar with them. A friend I know has
Falken Z502s and likes them for normal driving.
Remember: The GSR has a slightly higher performance suspension than a standard Integra, thus requiring
a better tire.

If you are looking for a good all-season tire without spending for the Michelins,
the Dunlop SP4000s are a nice "V" rated all season tire, that many a GSR owner currently

if you never go above 65mph and never drive the GSR
the way it was meant to be driven through turns
sell your GSR! no, just kidding...if you really don't drive it hard at all,
then you may want to consider a set of Dunlop D60 A2 "H" rated tire (imho).
(as a side note: even VTEC needs a little exercise every now and then! Daily is best)

I am in a similar position myslef of replacing the Michelins on my 96 GSR, and its not that
they are worn out, but that they SUCK! (XGT-V4), and I am tired of sliding around in the

I am seriously considering the new Michelin Pilot XGT V4 *(serious redesign)*
because Tire Rack gave them a great rating, and I have heard similar feedback from
people in the tire selling industry. They are a few bucks more, but hey, why not?

Call around to several places and don't be afraid to work a package deal (get them to throw
in road hazard, or better their price a bit). Just be wary of those hidden charges
(new valve stems, mounting, balancing, and the sort)...get your price with all of that
stuff included.

Good luck,
