Default 2004 Accord EX Sedan Tire ?

Hey All,
I have an 04 Accord EX Sedan and it needs 2 new tires in the front.
Currently the OEM tire is the Michelin Energy MXV4 in a V rating. Is the
V-rated tire required or can it e stepped down to a H rated tire with little
or no loss of handling, safety, etc?

Why don't you ask the tire distributer? Would you bank on what you read
here?

the V rating is a speed rating, also, typically V rated tires will wear
faster than an H rated tire. If your not performance driving at high speeds,
you probably won't notice a difference.

Not, really, but just looking for opinions only.

Check the sticker inside the driver's door jamb to see what Honda
recommends as the minimum speed rating.

==============
A tire dealer once told me not to mix speed ratings on tires. If
I have "V rating on the rear and H rating in front it could
cause an under steer feel. I never noticed any difference.
2 my cents...

You probably already know that buying 4 new tires will be safer. You
can not predict that any V-rated tire will perform better than any
H-rated tire so mixing will be something of a crap shoot. So how much
money is your life worth? You bought the "EX" so claims of poverty
won't fly.
Whatever you buy, make sure that the REAR tires have at least as much,
if not more, traction than the front tires. Under no circumstances do
you want the back end to break loose (oversteer).
See www.tirerack.com survey results for tire ratings.
The OEM tires are not very good so you will probably not want to keep
them on the rear.
I replaced Michelin Energy tires (all 4) with Goodyear's Assurance
ComforTreds on my daughter's Accord and she has been happy with them,
esp. the highway ride.

2000 TL is theoretically capable of 146 MPH, hence V rated tires are
recommended for it.

I put Michelin MXV4 H-rated tires on my 93 Accord EX when the mileage
reached 100K. Those tires are good; and they lasted for 100K mileage.
