I can't disagree with anything said and yes the OEM Michelin's are not my 1st choice ; in fact I noticed some mild hydroplaning recently. Well when the snow starts to fly here; and it will soon' there will be a proper set of Bridgestones on it

The rubber could be stickier and better for daily driving and better suited for what the ILX is capable of doing. But I guess Acura had to cheap out somewhere.

It must have something to do with a contract with Michelin.. because those tires are outrageously expensive (for a consumer to buy) and they're pretty aweful.. Road noise, feedback and really it's only saving grace is the tires are tough.. they do last longer than most tires I have bought..


But, that could also be because they don't inspire confidence like other tires. :ninja:

I think these tires are heavier then your typical all season tire, bad thing especially when the ILX isn't a quiet vehicle to begin with, those tires just add to the noisy ride.

I wish the 2.4 would be added in with an auto option. I'd dump my 2.0 for a 2.4 auto as soon as they released one. Not a big fan of manuals for everyday use.
My guess is they don't wanna use the 5-speed in the 2.4 model and will probably release the 2.4 with a 6 speed so they can still show a good MPG number without overly nerfing the performance..

But the 2.4 sings a sweet song and the manual works oh so well.

I don't get why they didn't have an automatic option, im sure Honda has a automatic transmission that can be mated to the 2.4L engine.

Possible they wanted to keep the 2.4L model as true to performance as possible, only selling it in manual.
