Tyre recommendations to replace front OEM (225/45/R17)

Evening all,

I hope you've all had a relaxing Christmas.

My 2 front tyres (original OEM) are nearing replacement in the coming months so just wanted to see what you all recommend?.
It'll be my first time buying tyres for my Honda.

Previously I've had the Dunlop Sport Maxx RT on my previous car (Seat Ibiza) and I really liked those - very good on road noise and softened the ride on a very stiff Ibiza and now the RT2 are available. Any feedback?.
I see many of you praising the Michelin Pilot Sport 4's from browsing. Any others.. Sport Contact 5?..

Budget isn't an issue. Rarely any motorway driving, a couple of 20 minute journeys here and there a week (lots of roundabouts)

Thanks in advance!

Bridgestone Turanza ER300's and in or around the 10,500 mark.
I've still got a couple of mm to play about with but was just thinking ahead.

and yes.. low mileage for the tyres. Cheers Milton Keynes..

if there a softish compound that millage isnt too bad
obviously we all want tyres to last as long as possible due to the cost
i think i got around 12000 out of my last set of uniroyals rain sport 3's but mines a 2.2 ctdi which are slightly heavy on the front end

I made more than 60.000 km with the OEM Turanza, now I have Continental CSC 5 and I'm very happy.
