After 25k miles my 2013 is needing some new rubber shortly, I'm thinking just replacing with the exact same Michelin Energy Saver +

How many miles have you done?

Mine is also on 25k, has got 4mm tread left (I do 90% motorway driving) but have already decided to go for exactly the same - too many posts about people changing tyres and getting lower mpg. On my old 2.2 they used to last about 28k.

I'm about the same mileage and tread left. I'll need to do a quick search and see what the Michelins are coming in at. Seem OK tyres and no real issues with grip, possibly a bit noisy but that's probably due to the construction for saving energy.

Just checked and they are coming in @ £60 a pop which seems pretty reasonable for standard fitment tyres.

I'm not a fan of the standard fit Conti PremiumContact2 as they're noisy and don't grip that well.

Depends what you want, but I switched my previous car over to Avon ZV5's and they gripped like nothing else (noticably so in the wet) and were really quiet. I struggled to get more than 20k miles out of them though, and they're about £60 a corner on 205/55/16.

Seriously considering them for my Civic though as the Contis feel really inferior in comparison.

2 fronts at about 29K and just replace one rear at 41K (lease co wouldn't do the other as still 4 mm!).

Same rubber as when new
