    The Michelin HX MXM4 come stock on the Si, in Canada anyway not sure for the U.S. I think they are a pretty good tire. They have a good lip on them so you can't get any curb rash on your rims unless you hit it real hard. Once they warm up they are very sticky. Don't know how much they are where you live but if I were to go get 4 new ones it would be close to $1000. The tires i'm going to get when mine wear out are Goodyear Eagle GT. They are $195 each and MXM4 are $245 each.

    MXV4 is supposed to be better than MXM4. If you like, get the H rated and save a few bucks per tire, since you don't need V rating. MXM4 is low rolling resistance tire. And I believe MXV4 is more quiet than MXM4 too. BTW I hope you are talking about Primacy MXV4 and Primacy MXM4, not Pilot HX MXM4,which is garbage and ultra expensive (had 4 OEM with 07 Accord V6 MT coupe and dumped it as soon as I could afford new tires).

    Yes they are overpriced but their quietness and ride comfort is not something other companies can easily surpass.

    MXM4 is the one up from MXV4 utilizing fuel efficient low rolling resistance technology. U can't go wrong with Michelines. Both are great tires. Do you know they grow their own rubber trees and still is a family business?
