The General G-Max AS-05 might be a good, low priced upgrade for you.

You can get a set of 4 in 215/55-16 for under $400.

She said she believes they are Firestones (FT140). I have those tires on my EX-L and they are mediocre. And even if she has the OEM Hankook Kinergy, for example, the G-Max is an upgrade. OEM tires generally aren't very good.

I replace my Hankook tires when new for better and less noisy tires. Michelin Defender.
My wife Civic's keep their Hankook. I drive both cars.

Is my car is less noisy ? just a very very little bit IMO. Is it worth many hundred $$$ expense ? Not sure. Civic is a noisy car and it is not the tires only.

Go for Perelli tires. It’s what I use on my civic. Well, I went for track capable tires mostly for safety reasons. I been in too many car wrecks and don’t wish to lose my car in a ditch when my car understeers.

When I did this post, I was nowhere near my car. I was in the office so no I couldn’t remember what the name of the tires were at the time 😑

Yes and did you mean Honda built a special and noisy Civic for me ?

My previous car, Corolla was more noisy.

I rent 2 cars each years when I'm out of the country , same category as Civic.
Most of them are more quiet .

Well I’m not spending more than $500-$600 on tires. I don’t just want the “ok” thread but something that’s going to last for a good while. mainly just seeing what people have on their Civic Ex models.
I Rock the Faulkin tires on my 6th gen (18", So.. Lol), about $150/e with road hazard protection. Grippy AF, but durable too. Had Pirellis on em before but forgot how much I paid.. been awhile
