    I am looking at a 2003 civic LX sport and see that they come with Firestone
    tires. They are 195 65R 15 (I think).
    Does anyone have suggestions on a better tire? I had firestones on my Focus
    and they weren't all that bad.
    Has anyone had success getting the dealer to swap tires on a new car? The
    local dealer that I spoke with said that I should "go down the road" and
    talk to a tire dealer. It would be cheaper than getting their service dept
    to swap tires.

    I am looking for suggestions on tires to leave on all season. I live in
    south western ontario (we get lots of snow in winter) so I am looking for a
    general all season tire.

    Use your existing tires and rims for the summer & fall and get yourself a
    set of good winter tires on a set of steel wheels for the winter. Your
    aluminum rims will stay nicer, longer and your tires will last twice as
    My wife used to go to school London, Ont. & with the amount of snow down
    that way, snow tires are highly recommended, the degree of safety they
    provide is priceless.

    Dunlop SP A2, but having two dedicated sets of tires would be more than
    justified where you live, in my opinion. All-season is really "no-season",
    meaning these tires are OK but not great in any season.
