Have a 2005 Accord, 6 cyl.
Have a set of Nokian WR G2 tires on them, which I leave year round.

Any other thoughts or comments would be most appreciated.
I have found TireRack to be a good source for the type of information you
are looking for. So far, I have found Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum tires to be
quite satisfactory on my 06 Accord I4 coupe. But, since I live in midstate
GA I cannot talk to their performance in snow. In my case, I purchased the
tires through TireRack for delivery to my installer -- a process that worked
very well indeed.
