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.
My front tire was shot at only 6000 mi Put a shinko777 bias ply same size as oe it Went 14,000 mi feels fine.Put another just like it recently- My original Rear tire went 11,500,I put a shinko 009 raven on rear, ready to change it soon it Has almost 12,500 mi.Dunlop roadsmart2 next for rear $93.00 on ebay!
