I personally think that's a bit pricy...Only place that I ever go to is Discount Tire. I think ebay offering a discount right now that expires March 19 with the seller discounttiredirect. Buy $400 in tires and off $100. I always buy the certificates, and have it installed in stores.

Go with the Yokohama Avid Ascend. We have had several different brands on our three Fits and the Yokohamas are the best all around tire. Getting ready to put a set on our 2016 Fit with 49,000 miles on it. I just priced them for install at the SBN distribution center. $472 out the door (no shipping).

I wish there were more name brand choices in the OEM size.

My searches pretty much show a Michelin Choice ( Not very well reviewed ).
The original Firestone choice (OEM).
And the Yokohoma's.

I'd like a wider range of choices.

For years, Cooper has been my ďgo toĒ replacement tire. American made and Iíve never had a bad one. My local Honda dealer got them for me at a competitive price, and I'm very happy with them.

Thatís the thing with tires, though, ask 10 people and get 10 different answers.

I just got the Yokohama Avid Touring S tires a couple of weeks ago after 54,000 miles on the oem Firestones. Smoother, quieter, better handling. I'm not disappointed. $386 out the door at Discount Tire but your 85k beats my 65K warranty.

I went with Dealer Reliability and Past Performance.

That said.............I got the Maxxis 202's, mounted, balanced, and front end alignment for $346 from a mom and pop tire place that I've had good luck with in the past. This was the 4th or 5th set of tires I've bought from them. (They only had to do a minor tweak to the front end so the charge for that was minimal).
They are a Maxxis dealer. The owners wait on you. The wife said they've had very good luck with the 202's so that's what I got. It's a 1/2 hour drive to the shop at 70 mph. The ride home was much better than the ride there. I got 37,500 out of the original tires. The only complaints I could find by reading reviews on the internet about the 202's was that they could be loud, and they are terrible in the rain. Mine aren't by any means.
I'm happy. I got new tires and I just saved myself about $200-$250. And, I was in and out in less than an hour.
Thanks for the info. I hope you all find a tire shop like I have.

I have always been partial to Falkens. I'm planning on buying the Falken ZIEX ZE90 A/S Tire 195/50R16.

I've had time to test out the Maxxis 202's, even in some very, very heavy rain. They've done just fine. I'm very happy with them.
I'm thinking maybe some of those bad reviews were written by people trying to discourage us from buying Chinese goods.

How is the Maxxis road noise compared to the OEMs?

The same or quieter. But its really not fair for me to say because I didn't keep up on rotations like I should have.
The Maxxis tires I have now aren't loud by any means.

Did you buy online or walk in? my local discount tire doesn't have those in stock. I'm gonna have to order them. Did you go stock size?

I've had the Avid Ascends for a couple thousand miles now. They tramline way more than stock tires. Any recommendations to what I should do or should I consider that a feature?

I've had the Maxxis tires for 2 months and a couple thousand miles and I'm very happy with them.

I bought them on line at the Discount Tire web site and scheduled the installation at the local DT store but they didn't have them in stock. So I had to wait 3 days for DT to order them. I didn't mind the wait. They're good tires at a good price.

Yes, I went stock size.
