Default Tiger Paw tires for a Honda Accord V6?

My tires are dry rotting. They aren't even that old! I need 205/60R16 sized tires. The honda dealer was going to charge $940 for 4 Michelin high performance tires. I checked around and can get cheaper tires -- brand name is called Tiger Paws. My dealer strongly recommends that I do not get these tires and that I go with either Michelin or Cooper because I have a V6 engine and need high performance tires.If I barely drive my car do I really need high performance tires? Has anyone gotten tiger paw tires for their Honda Accord V6 before?Any advice would be awesome

I've never heard of Tiger Paw tires, but I'd think they're half decent. If you drive your car aggressive, you should get the Michelins (personally I don't love them). I have fallen in love with Toyo (pricey) and Kuhmo (cheap), both perform great. Try discount tire/ america's tire, they have great tires at great prices. http://www.discounttire.com/dtcs/home.do

I have a 2001 V6 Accord. The factory tires were Michelins. Depending on where you live will determine the type of tires to get. For example, if you live in California, you can just get the "summer passenger" tires. If you live in a state where it would snow, then you're probably better off getting "all-season passenger" tires. I replaced my tires with Goodyear TripleTred since I live in the midwest. They're good all-season tires. Since you barely drive your car, you do not need high performance tires as the "stealership" recommends, as they would be a waste of your money. Tiger Paws are mediocre tires. Good brands are Michelin, Goodyear, Continental, and Kumho. Good Luck.
