This is a great 65,0000, rated tire. I really looked around and compared all brand tires. I do recommend opting for the V rated tire, instead of the T rated tire for this car. There is a huge difference, when changing lanes. The accord calls for an H rated tire, so the V rated is a step up, because yokohama does not make, an H rated tire in this size. Primarily, because most of the high rated mileage you can get on thus tire. I will say Yokohama has great customer service, as you can drive for 30 days on this tire and if you are not completely satisfied Yokohama will honor a customer service guarantee. The handling is a very good, the road noise depends on the roads, but I believe it compares to Michelin, and many other top brands. The accord typically does well with most tires on road noise. These are a safe bet, for all sedans. It runs very cool, and with the blue earth technology, you are supposed to get better gas mileage. The V rated tires do have stiffer sidewalks, but do not decrease the ride quality or comfort.
