Default 2002 Honda Accord EX Coupe V6 .... Tires?

I need recommendations. I didnt' realize how much I liked the OEM tires (Michelin) until I bought Toyo tires to replace them. Now it's time to replace my tires again and I'm considering going back to the Michelin. However, Goodyear seem to be a lot less expensive for the same tire. These are the specs I'm searching for P205/60R16 91V. Do you think I should go with the more expensive Michelin or the less expensive Goodyear? My biggest concerns are mileage and road noise. I want a quiet set of tires that will last at least 50K miles.

I have owned various vehicle and have always used Michelin tires. They have lasted a long time but they tend to be noisy and cost quite a bit more than the equivalent. The last time I replaced my tires, I used Yokohama YK520s...and they are the quietest tires I have ever owned. The tires are 60K tires and you can get them in your size for $99 each at discount tire. The Michelins you would need are the Destiny tire which they SAY are 80K tires but they cost $120 each in your size. If interested, try Yokohama. I think you will be very happy with them. Long life, great handling, extremely low road noise, and a reasonable price.I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY LUCK WITH ANY GOODYEAR TIRES! I have checked with friends and they feel the say way I do about Goodyear.Good luck,Z
