Honda Accord: Replacing Tires andWheels
Replace your tires with radial tires of the same size, load range, speed rating, and maximum cold tire pressure rating (as shown on the tire’s sidewall).
Mixing radial and bias-ply tires on your vehicle can reduce braking ability, traction, and steering accuracy. Using tires of a different size or construction can cause the ABS and vehicle stability assist system (VSA) to work inconsistently.
The ABS and VSA system work by comparing the speed of each wheel.
When replacing tires, use the same size originally supplied with the vehicle. Tire size and construction can affect wheel speed and may cause the system to activate.
It is best to replace all four tires at the same time. If that is not possible or necessary, replace the two front tires or two rear tires as a pair.
Replacing just one tire can seriously affect your vehicle’s handling.
If you ever replace a wheel, make sure that the wheel’s specifications match those of the original wheels.
Also be sure you use only TPMS specific wheels. If you do not, the tire pressure monitoring system will not work on that tire.
Replacement wheels are available at your dealer.
Installing improper tires on your vehicle can affect handling and stability. This can cause a crash in which you can be seriously hurt or killed.
Always use the size and type of tires recommended in this owner’s manual.
