These tires are OKAY, if you live in a sunny climate and drive very conservatively. They are however absolutely horrible if you drive in the rain/snow as they offer very little grip. If your car has over 200 hp (pretty average) then good luck. The braking is horrible as there is no grip and the road noise is unacceptable. The only redeeming quality of these tires is that they have good tread life, however I changed mine prematurely for a set of Bridgestone RE970AS tires and haven't looked back.
Great tire for Honda Accord . Much quieter and smoother ride , which wasnt tough to do vs. the Goodyear Assurance tires. Tire is great in snow and slush. It snowed one day after these were installed and I drove 40 miles on unplowed highways with alot of confidence. Accord goes from slipping and spinning to a snow beast with the tire change. So yeah if you have snow where you live these are great. Or if you want a more comfortable ride in Winter then these are great for that also.
Providing feedback after researching noisy ride at medium speed. The tires are original equipment on a low mileage, Certified Preowned 2013 Accord LX we recently purchased from a Honda dealership (20 months old). The tires are in excellent condition--almost no evidence of wear. In fact, they appear almost new. The tires look great but I notice two things about them that really bothers me. First, they sometimes squeal when turning right or left--as if the front of the car is sliding and not gripping the road. Next, they are very loud and noises-like irritating loud and noisy--especially on smooth roads. I've always bought Michelins for our cars and my truck. Not bashing Good Year but there is no comparison to the ride, durability, warranty, and performance of Michelins. Sure, I really dread having to spend money on a relatively new car but I will be switching to Michelin Premiers very quickly. Oh--I am certain the Good Year tires on this particular Honda are quite noisy but 2013 Accords do not have the best suspension design either--good reliable car otherwise. Just my two-cents worth.
I bought a new 2013 Honda Accord EX-L and it came with this tire. The dealership made sure they were in balance and did a road force balance. These tires still have a little vibration going down the highway. I am very disappointed Honda put this tire on the EX-L. As soon as I can I am going back to Michelin tires.
Had these tires on now for at least 2000km's. Performance has been great so far, only a couple of days with snow. They have performed well in the snow we have had, very predictable and confidence inspiring in poor conditions. Dry and Wet driving has been excellent so far. Previously had Hankook Winter I-Pike RC01 on my Acura RSX, snow performance seems similar but ice performance is better with this new Winter i-Pike RS.
