I am in desperate need of new tires for my 2004 Honda Accord, 4cyl. I've visited many sites and stores and have read many reviews and I think I have come down to 2 tires. Yokohama YK580's or Michelin Defender's. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with any of these tires? Currently I'm running Michelin Primacy MXV4 and have not been very impressed by them. Wet weather traction is fair at best, snow/ice is horrible. Dry weather they're fine. I've also worn them down in about 35k so the longevity of them is not very good. In the past on all my other cars I have always leaned towards Yokohama's and I have never had any issues. The Michelin Defender's are highly touted in reviews, but I'm a bit weary of the brand since I haven't been very impressed with the Primacy's. So I come to my friends in the Car Talk forums to ask for advice. Does anyone have any experience with either of these tires? Or are there other tires that I may want to look at and have possibly skipped over.
Thanks in advance!!!
