Default Tires for 06 Civic EX

Hi,

I need new tires for the front of my daughter's 06 Civic EX.

Best deal I see is Kumho Ecsta LE Sport at $86 plus shipping from
tirerack.com

Anyone have feed back on this tire or recommend any other tire for
this car. The existing Bridgestone HP 550's make too much road noise
at low speed for my liking.

It has Goodyear Eagle LS on the rear which have 80% tread left. Tis
tire at tirerack.com are $79

We're in DC Metro area.

Al Moodie.

Unless you need a special tire fir a car like this, it's probably not worth
the extra effort of buying from Tire Rack. They're a great outfit, but you
live in a large metro area and you should be able to find something suitable
at a good price somewhere. Tire Rack's website does have a lot of good
info. Check their tests for noise levels and shop around. New tires will
probably be quieter, but get noisier as they age. Hondas have never been
known for being super-quiet in terms of road noise anyway.

I have Kumho Ecstas on my 06 Accord coupe -- through Tire Rack -- and am
very pleased with them. Road noise is greatly diminished from the
Firestones I had before.

get a V-shaped directional tread and road noise from the tires will be
less. Or the type that has mostly circumferential grooves,not cross grooves
that make noise.
for your daughter's car,watch for tread wear codes,because performance
tires usually have shorter tread life.

You must have pretty good ears if you can tell that road noise is coming
from the front rather than the rear tires!

If I were you, I'd buy the same model tires for the front that are on
the back. Saves all kind of headaches, esp re: rotation.

Since the front wheels are driven, whereas the rears are idle, I would
expect to hear more noise from the front tires, all other things being
equal.

When you apply power, torque is transmitted to the front wheels and
stress is applied to the treads as they are forced to react and scrub
and twist to create forward motion (Newton's third law and all that
[for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction])

Anyway my wife tells me I need my hearing checked, but that's just
because I don't hear everything she says, which is quite a lot.

Hi,

Had a pair of Kumho Solus KH 25 fitted locally, $91 per tire plus
fitting, $235.34 total including tax.
