How to Check 2013 Honda Accord Tire Pressure

Have the correct tire pressure can ensure even tread wear, improved traction and
fuel efficiency. To check tire pressure, remove the valve stem cap and use a tire
gauge to measure air pressure in each tire – make sure they are cold before
measuring pressure!

Michelin – Tire Pressure

Michelin recommends regularly monitoring tire pressure for optimal driving,
particularly after long car trips or after using it for several hours. You can locate the
recommended tire pressure in your owner’s manual or on a sticker located inside the
driver’s side door jamb. Use a tire gauge to measure air pressure levels in
each tire and compare with specified pressure values; just make sure they’re cold
(ie not recently driven on). For accurate readings.
Properly inflated tires can reduce gas mileage and improve handling dynamics, wear
more slowly, increase safety in inclement weather and prolong their lifespan. You
can easily check tire pressure with Honda Accord’s Tire Fill Assist feature or a
pressure gauge; many vehicles also come equipped with TPMS sensors which alert
drivers of low tire ; however it is recommended to manually check them at
least once every month for optimal results.


If the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) light on your Accord has illuminated,
this indicates one or more tires have low air pressure. Simply inflate each tire to
their manufacturer-recommended pressure levels and your TPMS light should go out.
If not, try the penny test: insert one penny Lincoln-head-first into tread to see if
Lincoln can peek his head above. If that method doesn’t work either, try sticking a
penny upside-down into tread where possible and see if its head pops through, that
indicates too low air pressure levels!
Properly inflated tires can significantly improve your gas mileage, increase
performance and lengthen its lifespan. Be sure to use an accurate tire pressure
gauge regularly when checking the air pressure in your Honda Accord’s tires;
recommended PSI levels can usually be found inside or on the door jamb, or listed in
its owner’s manual. It’s also wise to conduct “cold checks”, at least three hours prior
to driving your vehicle or immediately post-use.


TPMS lights indicate low tire air pressure levels that could be the result of damage,
improper inflation or sensor malfunction. To reset your system and clear away this
error message, follow the instructions found in your owner’s manual or replace any
Your tires play a critical role in the performance, safety, and traction of your car.
Aligning, balancing, and pressurizing them correctly can save money in gas mileage
while improving handling – our Honda parts and service experts can assist in
selecting the best tires for your vehicle.


When purchasing tires, it’s essential to understand their code – which includes their
type, tread width, aspect ratio, radial, load rating and speed rating – before selecting
and inflating them properly. Incorrect tire pressure may cause irreparable damage
and set off the Tire Pressure Monitoring System warning light; additionally it is also
crucial that you learn how to reset this warning light as well as use a tire pressure
gauge properly in order to ensure correct air pressure in each of your tires.
Most vehicles now include tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) sensors in each
wheel to monitor tire pressure. A TPMS alert will sound if your tires become
underinflated, which can lead to uneven wear, poor handling dynamics and reduced
fuel economy. Inflation should be done regularly at an affordable price so take the
time and make this part of your routine! Keeping them properly inflated on an
ongoing basis is easy and affordable so take the time and take note: your tires
deserve better care.
