Re: New tire - different types
The Pilot Road 4s are great on wet and cold roads. The 5s have far less sipping, and have personally stuck (no pun intended) to the 4s. Even worn those have more grip that the stock Dunlops that came with it. Under ideal conditions, (dry warm, roads with no debris,) it probably won't matter what you go with. As road temps decrease, the differences get more and more apparent. Tire pressures are on your VIN tag. Reduce a little, for improved grip under less than ideal conditions. Set properly for good wear.
