Has anyone switched out the low profile tires for regular tires? Just drove a loaner Accord with regular tires and it felt like it had a better ride.

Other trims have 50 series on 17" and the ride is softer. I am getting 55 series for snow tires and expect it to be softer as well.

I Heard the Trans - Automatically - Calibrate the Mph Differences up to certain assorted Size ..

As Many Cars that are Leased - it always seems those Rad High by 2 Mph - meaning in 3-4 yr Lease You'll easily run up extra 4000 Miles Sooner !
Be Hit by the Penalty . Miles .

I Believe it something to do with Trans gets Road Signal . . Dpn't Quote Me . . but it's something like that ..

The stock Goodyear Touring tires on the 19” wheels aren’t so great in the rain. They tend to slip a lot! On my 2016 Accord with Continental tires, they were great in the rain. The treads seem to wear down a lot quicker too on the Goodyear Touring, I feel like I will need to get them replaced before I hit 20,000 miles.

But who has GY tires on their Touring. I am under the impression that that GYs were used on Sport cars only, thinking they are performance tires, NOT. :devil:

They may be okay in dry pavement, but on wet pavement they are bad. I think on the Touring they are wrapped in Michelin tires.

I changed my 19” Michelins for 18” Pirelli P Zero Plus a/s tires. My main goal was not a better ride, but improved driving dynamics; acceleration, braking, and gas mileage. It appears they are better with those issues. The ride, however, is about the same because of the high performance construction of the Pirelli’s.
