Anyone know what it is? I can't seem to make out what tires are on the concept.

Seven spoke 18x8J aluminum-alloy wheels and 245/45 R18 all-weather tires are standard, while Technology, Krell and Advance grades feature 19x8J wheels and 245/40 R19 tires. The RLX's alloy wheels also feature a noise-reducing design that lowers tire noise by 7 decibels across the audible frequency range.

Thankfully the RLX will have this technology in the wheels, the ILX has a ton of road noise and it would suck if a top of the line Acura had it as well.

Not sure what 7 decibels is like but test driving one will do it for me.

Hey all Not the MXMV4, its a new tire on the Michelin web sight, it is MXM4. Tire rack shows them but to new for reviews.
Sometimes a manufacturer has tires made for a particular purpose, and Honda/Acura are famous for doing this with Michelin. Even though a tire might appear to have exactly the same name as your Acura's, it's possible that the ones on your car are different from the ones on a retail site.
