Well I was planning on getting a set of Bridgestone Ecopia EP150s in 185/55r16 (stock size for I2 ES) but it seems they're like hens' teeth in the UK. They're rated BB70 for the usual rolling resistance, wet braking and noise, the only B RR tyre I know of in the stock size. Unfortunately it looks like they've been announced but are not yet available, at least according to the tyre suppliers I spoke to (actually ordered them from 2 different suppliers who both took my money and then phoned to say they weren't in stock).
After a bit of searching and reading reviews, I'm going for Toyo Proxes CF2. They're rated CB70. I'll have them fitted in around a week and a half. £75 a corner with £20 fitting etc for all 4 at the local Honda Dealer (which happens to be my nearest garage).
This will be my first set of new tyres, getting away from the stock Dunlop SP2030s at nearly 40,000 miles.
Unfortunately it's going to be an expensive month. Someone put a 40cm scratch on the bonnet (hood to those the other side of the pond) so I'm having it resprayed. That'll be £250 plus VAT...
