Maintaining the Proper Tire Pressure on Your 2012 Honda Accord

Maintaining the appropriate tire pressure in your Accord can help reduce uneven
wear, improve traction, enhance fuel efficiency and extend tire life. Underinflated
tires could trigger the low pressure indicator light.
Use a tire gauge on an undriven wheel to check tire air pressure, following any
recommended tire pressure levels found in either your owner’s manual or door jamb
sticker.

Tire Pressure

Check your tire pressure at least monthly, more frequently if driving in hot or cold
temperatures, using the recommended PSI listed on the Honda Accord sticker inside
your driver door, or in its owner’s manual; use a tire pressure gauge available from
most auto parts stores; when checking air pressure use cold tires that haven’t been
driven on for at least three hours as this ensures even tread wear, improved traction
and fuel economy, as well as reduced risks of flats. A tire pressure gauge can be
purchased from most auto parts stores; use the recommended PSI listed to ensure
optimal tire wear over time and minimize risks of flats occurrence. Check air
pressure regularly using recommended settings found within its owner’s manual to
ensure optimal tire pressure settings are used; tire pressure gauges available at
most auto parts stores to obtain accurate readings.
If your tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) light illuminates, this means the tires
are under-inflated and require filling up to the recommended psi levels. Follow the
procedure outlined in your Honda Accord owner’s manual to reset its sensor; inflate
your tires until they meet this benchmark before repeating these steps; the warning
light should go away after inflation has taken place; otherwise seek professional help
immediately.

Tire Size

Most Honda sedans, like the Accord and Civic, require 32 PSI of air in their tires for
optimal performance. You can find this information listed either inside your driver
door or your owner manual. If your TPMS light illuminates, filling to proper pressure
will reset and turn off this light.
Suggested tire pressure levels are measured in pounds per square inch (psi), bars or
kilopascals (kPa). Suggested pressure levels will typically be displayed on the tire
sidewall, although front and rear tires with staggered wheels may have different
pressure requirements.
Proper tire inflation will enhance both responsiveness and performance while saving
money through improved fuel economy. Regularly check the air pressure in your
tires using a tire gauge or inflator; make sure that measurements take place when
tires are cold after not having been driven recently. At Hare Honda we carry a
comprehensive selection of performance and all season tires for all driving
situations.

Tire Brand

No matter which tires you select for your 2012 Honda Accord, make sure they
feature the recommended air pressure in PSI listed on either the driver’s door
placard or owner’s manual. Underinflated or under-inflated tires may lead to uneven
wear patterns, decreased handling performance and performance as well as poor
fuel economy resulting in blowouts of their tires.
Your Honda Accord tires contain information regarding speed rating, treadwear,
traction and temperature grades – among others. Treadwear indicates how long a
tire should last before needing replacing and traction indicates how well they
perform on wet pavement.
Your Honda Accord’s tires are essential to its performance for many reasons,
including responding to your driving decisions, responsiveness, traction and
efficiency. Ensuring they are balanced, aligned and pressurized is vital in order to
increase performance while saving money by prolonging tire lifespan – contact Hare
Honda now to start improving it!

Tire Temperature

Your tires on your 2012 Honda Accord are some of the most crucial parts of your
vehicle. They play an integral part in safety including traction and performance as
well as improving gas mileage. Ensuring they are aligned, balanced, and pressurized
can make an incredible difference both responsiveness and efficiency.
Your tire pressure in an Accord will change with temperature fluctuations, so it is
crucial that it is monitored on an ongoing basis. A tire pressure gauge is an excellent
way of doing just this – be sure to use one when checking tire pressure – best results
come when done on cold tires that haven’t been driven in at least 3 hours prior to
doing this task!
Low tire pressure can be caused by multiple factors, including over or under-inflated
tires, cracked valve stems and missing tire valve caps. Over time, your air will slowly
escape due to these issues; if your Accord Accord’s tire pressure monitoring system
(TPMS) light is illuminated indicating underinflated tires a tire inflator can help
restore air pressure quickly and easily.
