What is the best tire for Civic EX 04?
Michellin? Goodyear? for better traction and performance.
Is it good enough to stay with OEM tire?

I have an 02 Civic EX. Recently switched from the stock tire to the Fuzion Zri. Was wary of not buying a brand name tire, but read all the reviews on Tirerack and they were all very positive. I bought 205/50WR16, they were $73 each, which is really cheap. I have 12K miles on them and they show little wear. They are a high performance summer tire, so Im not sure if that fits your needs. They are quiet, extremely grippy, have lost no air, and are great in the rain. Tire rack is a great place to educate yourself on tires since they provide all those customer reviews.

Ive found that OEM Honda tires are overpriced and built for a quiet ride and long wear, but arent great in the rain or for performance.

I just went thru the search and purchase process for All-Seasons or Snows for my Civic and All-Seasons for my wifes CRV. I really like Michelin X-one tires. I have worn our a few of these tires over the years. They also have like an 80,000 mile warrenty so if you wear them out before this mileage, Michelin will give you a new set. Done this and it is pretty nice getting new rubber for free. These are getting pretty dated as they date back into the 90's. Great snow, rain and all season tire.

I ended up buying snows for my Civic. For my wifes CRV we bought her Goodyear Triple Treads. These are really nice tires that function in all environments. I really like these tires as far as All-seasons go and they have a really nice directional tread as well so they give the CRV a more aggressive look if you can imagine that.....

I have Yokohama's ....forget the model on my Civic summer wheels but these tires really stink in the rain and don't even think about running them in the winter......

What is the climate like where you live? Is your car stock or are you sporting some custom wheels?

Good luck
