MattI need to replace my tires on my 94 Honda Accord LX. I live in Houston, TX
Here's what I am looking for:
- good handling in wet weather; resists hydroplaning
- can stand up to the hot Texas heat
- good overall value
- good traction
- handle my max driving speed of 100 mph (on Beltway 8 for those familiar with Houston)
The recommended tire size for my car is a P185/70R14. I am not sure how much I can vary from this size.

Any recommendations? What's a treadwear number that is a good compromise between giving decent traction and tread longevity?

Thanks for your help.

VinMy vote would be for the Dunlop D60A2. See my reply to Dan [D60A2 vs Comp T/A]. Check out: http://www.tolan-hoechst.com/cars/tirecalc.htm and do some tire calculations to see what other sizes would be a suitable match for yours. Remember, it's the overall outer diameter that you want to keep the same.

These tires are great between Erie PA and Raleigh NC. 10 straight hours at 80mph+ dry and wet they were stable, quiet, and to boot even ride fairly well too!

For my last Accord EX, I purchased (4) D60A2 195/65R15, with shipping they were about $225. Another $50 for mount and balance at the dealer and a great set of tires for around $280 total. I immediately chuck the the crappy OEM MXV4s Honda insists on putting on the Accord and sell them used for more than enough to buy the Dunlops! Goes to show you how over price the Michelins are! My A4 is getting them in the spring as well - even though the OEM Goodyears only have 1000 miles on them.

Good Luck.
