I would choose between the Michelin & Yoko. Pirelli would be a grey import so I would be very careful with it & also check the date of manufacturing before taking a decision.

If you don't want tyre noise then consider Yoko A.Drive, Michelin XM1+, Apollo Accelere etc.

finally upgraded.

Got Bridgestone Potenza GIII 185/65/R14(slightly wrong upsize due to +5 profile,but i like the raised look and better ride quality) and a set of alloys for my accent today.
Dent in my pocket-26K for tyres and Rims.

Brief review
got them today and tested them for 200+ kms on NH1

Ride quality is better than before,and there is almost no noise from the tyres.
Handling has improved,a lot and usual curves were taken at 80+ speeds easily.
Did, 160km/hr and the car behaved pretty well at those speeds.

What brand of tires come stock with the new Hyundai Accent Executive? Are they tubeless?
I'm looking for ride comfort, with zero/minimal loss in FE. I wish to stick with 13"; that said, is an upgrade recommended? Or is the stock size of 175/70 good enough.
If an upgrade is recommended, what size and brands are available, and what are their costs? If an upgrade is not recommended, is it advisable to have the stock tires exchanged for better brands?
How much could I possibly expect for the OEM tires, while trading-in?

-Stick to stock size. Michelin XM1/ Yokohama A drive and Apollo Aceleres are the best options available in market.
-All three tires should be in the range of 2500-2900.
- AFAIK Accent executive comes with tube type Bstone S322.
- The buy back value of the stock tires should be around 1500-1800 per tire.

What tyre pressure should I keep in 185/65/14.
As of now I am sticking to 32 PSI but ride seems to be on the softer side
Any recommendations?

I am running on stock accent tyres and in city always keep 30psi and 32psi on highway drives. I am surprised that you find the ride soft at 32psi.

For stock 32psi is a bit harsh and little bumpy while on highways

From no noise,to horribly noisy over the years,and its time to switch to Yokohoma C drives
