30K miles, OEM tires need replacement

So I am almost at 30K miles on my Accord Sport, and in need of new tires. To all of those out there that had to replace their tires, what brand did you have and how long did they last?

I have the Bridgestone and to be honest, I do not like them very much.

Now I have the dilemma what tire to get, that is a whole headache in itself. maybe you guys can chime in

I Live in FL; therefore, I was thinking Summer tires, but they usually have a shorter tread life. Therefore, I am deciding to go with Ultra High Performance All Season (I like to drive fast and take fast turns). so I am debating between the following tires:

1- SUMITOMO HTR A/S P02 ($100 per tire) -lower price and some nice reviews; I had Sumitomos before on my previous Accord, they were very grippy, but they needed replacement quickly (summer tires).

2- GENERAL G-MAX AS-03 ($135 per tire) - Good reviews but never had this brand before.

3-BFGOODRICH G-FORCE COMP-2 A/S- ($144 per tire) Great reviews but pricier than other 2

4- CONTINENTAL EXTREMECONTACT DWS 06 - ($170 per tire) - I had the previous version of these tires, they are phenomenal; but too expensive

5 - Falken Pro G4 A/S - ($120 per tire) -less expensive alternative but could not find any reviews


Does anyone have any experiences with these tires or other recommendations? Thank you in advance you your input

I live in Florida, have a 2014 Sport Standard. First the answer to your question. I called tire rack, explained I didnt like these Bridgestone tires and he said the Continental Extreme contact is the best tire for me. The Continentals have a somewhat more forgiving sidewall and are quieter. If you would help me out on something, I have a vibration in the front of the car, its on and off, above 35MPH. You feel it in the gas pedal and steering. Do or did you have this condition in your car . The dealer force balanced the tires, the vibration still is there. Dealer admits the vibration, but says they are all like that and can not fix the problem. Tried a brand new sport out and it was worse than mine ---- but both have the Bridestone tires . Thanks

I really liked my Michelin Primacy MXV4s, but they were quite expensive. Maybe not grippy enough for you.

My Michelin Pilot Primacys were very grippy, but only good for 30k miles.

Lot's of love in various reviews for Pirelli P7 Cinturato All Season Plus, but I've never personally owned Pirelli and can't speak from any experience.

I've never owned Generals either, but I assume I will. I used to always hear, "sooner or later, you'll own Generals!" on the radio when I was a kid.

I have not had a vibration that you mention.... except in a particular road i travel daily (but that is the road not the car)

I would suggest Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. They are a summer only tire but still have good tread wear life. They also have better grip than any all season tire in both dry and wet conditions. You will love these tires if you are an aggressive driver as you described. The price is also surprisingly reasonable for such a high performance tire and they are one of the very few summer tires with a tread wear warranty. 30K miles guaranteed! They also have a UTQG of 300, which is better than the rest of the summer only tires.

Thank you for the feedback, but at $240 per tire, that is too much.... One of the reasons I was looking at the Ultra High performance All Season, is the UTQC of 500 or more; I want the tires to last a little longer

I am also looking to replace all 4 and have narrowed it down to the Cont Extreme Contact or the Pirelli P7 Cinturato. I WILL NOT be buying my tires from Sears this time, as I've come to realize they are way expensive compared to buying from Tirerack and having them installed. Even factoring in the free rotations and balancing. Also, I've found the Road Hazard to be useless. Better off putting that money towards any new tires in the future, unless you tend to hit a lot of potholes.

I think I may go with the


as they are $100 shipped on Amazon.

I have the oem Michelin Primacy MXV4s on my 2013 Sport.I have just over 40,000 miles on them and 5 to 6 32 nds of tread left. I'm very happy with them. But they are quite expensive to replace.

I had Falken on my Wife's other car a couple of years ago. I kept them on for a year before I traded the car. They wore well, but felt heavy and sluggish. I wouldn't buy Falkens again for that reason.

Do more research at Discount Tire and at TireRack.

Whatever you go with, make sure you check the 4 digit date code. A buddy of mine bought "new" tires back in 2011, and the date code on them was from 2008! Not cool.

Follow up from suggestions from people who don't list or mention location. Tires for someone in snowy, pot-holed Illinois may not be satisfactory for someone in hot, rainy Florida....

Can't recommend a tire for you since you live in Florida but as far as General goes, don't rule them out .

I have had General Altimax RT43 on my Odyssey that replaced Michelins and were overall better for tire wear and all season use. Priced much lower than a comprable Michelin.

I also have had General Altimax Arctics for snows. These were pretty good but not like a Bridgestone Blizzak snow tires but were inexpensive. I believe that Continental owns General so that should give general some more credibility.

I have the P7's on the 2007 and although I really like them, I would not recommend them for the OP. Yes the ride, mileage, grip, expected tread life are all great, but the steering doesn't feel as precise as the OEM Bridgestones, or General Altimax Tires that I had on the car previously.
