I think Honda uses the Michelin because of its low rolling resistance - it helps improve
fuel mileage. I have always found the Michelins on my Accords (1 LX, the last two EXs)
to be sub-par. Even in road tests in various car mags, the testers always say the tires
are the weak link in the Accords's suspension. I've always chucked the Michs for
Dunlop D60A2s. Quieter. Cheaper. And what a BIG difference in handling! They're
not too hot in the snow tho, so you might want to consider snow tires if you go with them
and you live in the North. Actually, in a few weeks, I'm going to try the Bridgestone
RE930. Heard a lot of good things about them. Supposed to be even better than the
Dunlops in every way.
