I need new tires for Honda Accord. In grad school, when my little Escort needed new tires I went to some national chain and got some affordable tires. Didn't really think about it. Now, I've got a nicer Accord and too much time on my hands this evening, and I'm puzzling over tires. I can get Honda tires from my dealer and regular service location -- I assume they'll be the same Michelin Energy MXV4 as I have now. Survey results at TireRack.com are average. Or I can go to Dunn and get the Yokohama Avid TRZ. They'll be a bit cheaper than through Honda. And TireRack survey gives these top of class marks, though they're a different class from the Michelin, so I don't know if I'm muddling comparisons. What's a guy to do? Do tires really vary much; does it matter much what brand and model I get? Would Honda sell me anything inadequate?
