front tire

had to replace worn out tire at 8000 miles. hard to get factory front tire cheap enough so purchased michelin commander 2 120/70/r19. so far made steering way easier and at 100 mph seems as good as dunlop. no rain yet so dont know about quality in rain. read some good comments on commander 2, and folks claim way better longevitive. will see. tire cost 153.00 plus tax and $27. to mount and balance at honda dealer.
