If you plan to keep the stock size, it may help to know what trim level of
Civic Coupe this is. The EX has a different stock size (185/65-15) than the
other levels (185/70-14).

I suggest a visit to tirerack.com.

Its an LX i have visited tire rack but i think they have strange
ratings on tires. My oem firestones rate terrible but i got 70,000 on them
so its hard for me to figure. The Goodyear Triple treads and Goodyear
Assurance rate the best with a Michelin Hydroedge being good as well. I
just need a tire that lasts a long time and performs decent.

Are you happy with the mileage you achieved with the firestone tires? If so,
buy a replacement set of those. This decision is not as complicated as you
appear to be making it. {;^)

I got Pirelli P3000s for replacements on my 98 civic, got 70000mi on them on
shitty canadian roads (which is something else). I only got 38000mi outta
those crappy factory firestones on the same roads.
