I have a 2001 Honda Accord. I went from very worn Michelin all season touring tires (OEM?) to brand new Bridgestone Turanzas in the same category.

I just did a little searching and also remembered a few things. The Accord usually came with Michelin MXV4's as standard equipment. The typical tire numbers for those MXV4's are 300-A-A. The Bridgestone Turanza's are anywhere from 400-A-B to 640-A-A. The treadwear rating (the first number) tells me that the Bridgestones are made of a longer-wearing and therefore, harder, compound. So that would tell me that indeed you probably would get a stiffer ride.
