I am really pleased with the Michelin's I put on our '13 EX. They are the Defender T+H model. They are a vast improvement, IMO, over the OEM's that came on the car. We got @34k miles out of them.
The Michelin's are nice and quiet on smooth roads to the point you can hear wind noise where before we couldn't. I run 35 psi in them and they are not harsh at all. While they are not cheap, I think they will more than pay for themselves in the long run by lasting longer and providing a more comfortable ride.
Funny, the older I get the more comfort in my rides the better.
