Civic DX 2006–2009

The Civic DX is fitted with the Dunlop SP5000 195/65HR15. This tire was selected for the base model Civic for good reason—it is a basic tire. This is a middle-of-the-road, all season, touring tire. Keep in mind a radio was optional on some DX models. You can expect to get 30 to 40,000 miles out of this tire without handling or performance problems. Terry the Tireman Overall Rating: 6.5

Civic LX

The Civic LX is fitted with the Goodyear Eagle RS-A 205/55HR16. This particular Eagle tire is not known for its longevity, but with proper maintenance, it has both performance and all season qualities in its asymmetrical tread design. You can expect 25 to 35,000 miles out of this tire. Keep in mind though that without rotation every 5 to 7000 miles, this tire is a sure candidate for "cupping."

Civic EX

The Civic EX is fitted with Bridgestone’s flagship line, the Turanza EL400 205/55HR16. The assets of the tire start from the inside out. This design uses Bridgestone's latest technology, UNI-T, which includes four elements: comprehensive tire design method; innovative roundness with O-bead construction; L.L. Carbon (Long Link Carbon), which helps the rubber compound resist microscopic tread tearing related to wear; and a silica-based tread compound for improved wet traction, which also keeps the tires from become "brittle" in cold weather. You can expect 35 to 45,000 miles out of this tire. All technical jargon aside, this is a good tire! Terry the Tireman Overall Rating: 8.5

Civic Si

The Civic Si comes with a top-of-the-line Michelin MXM4 Pilot 215/45VR17 (which includes a summer option). It's known for its speed and agility more than its size and strength. The engineers at Honda got this one on the nose—it is truly the best tire for the Si. You can expect 25 to 35,000 miles out of these tires. With the exception of the price tag—about $225 MSRP—this is a great tire! Terry the Tireman Overall Rating: 9.0

Civic Hybrid

The Civic Hybrid comes stock with with either the Dunlop SP31 or the Bridgestone SE200 195/65SR15. These tires are both made specifically for the Hybrid. One major difference between these and other tires is their weight, which is about 8 pounds less than the regular 195/65R15. This means the tires have less rolling resistance.

The Dunlop's major drawback is premature edge wear on the tread. They may need to be replaced in as little as 7000 miles; their average mileage is about 18 to 28,000 miles. The Dunlop's tread design is asymmetrical with a large rain groove on the outside. Terry the Tireman Overall Rating: 5.5

  • UTQG rating: 320 treadwear / Traction: A / Temp: B
  • Made in Japan

The Bridgestone is a proven Traditional 5 ribbed touring tire. You can expect 40 to 50,000 miles out of this tire. No complaints, and nothing to write home about. It gets the job done. Terry the Tireman Overall Rating: 7.5

  • UTQG rating: 300 treadwear / Traction: B / Temp: B
