Stupid honda... the blue si thats comming in will be with SUMMER tires...

Too bad that sucks for me cuase im a commuter and summer tires most likely SUCK in snow lol =\


So now i have a dillema


Buy winter tires, switch between them during summer / winter


or

Sell my tires with the rims on ebay or whereever and buy new rims + all season tires




BTW how much would stock rims (new) and HPT go for if i wanted to sell em? Shipping would be a ***** tho right?

I'd keep your summer tires. Keep the rims and summer tires on the car. Find a nice set of dedicated snow tires and put them on some cheap steel rims for winter. Swap them out come summer time.

that way it keeps miles down on the summer tires - gives you much better stick in the summer, and you keep the stock rims from being exposed to road salt. That's just me.

I bought myself Bridgestone Blizzaks for the winter.. even though I had the EX.. Factory tires on most, if not all Honda/Acura's are known to suck.

yeah i changed out my g/f's tires on the 04 accord v6 to the goodyear comfortreads and she LOVES them.

I did the same when I had the RSX-S.

The only stock tires that I liked was when I had my GSX.. came with Goodyear RSA's
