Choosing the Right Tires for Your 2007 Honda Accord

When choosing right tires for your 2007 Honda Accord, take into account how and where
you plan to drive them. If you prefer off-roading adventures, heavy duty right tires may
be more suitable.
Tire inflation is essential to avoiding damage, tread wear reduction and improved
fuel economy. A tire pressure gauge or owner’s manual will give the best information
on recommended tire pressure levels for your vehicle.

TPMS – Right Tires

Modern vehicles often include Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) sensors to
maintain optimal tire pressure levels, and the Honda Accord is no exception. When
tire pressure falls 25 percent below vehicle manufacturer specifications (found either
in its owner’s manual or the tire and load rating label in the driver’s door jamb),
warning lights and audible alerts will illuminate. Please keep in mind that tire
pressure may change once air expands as temperatures warm up; hence TPMS
sensors’ recommended pressure is listed when cold – an important distinction from
cold inflation.

Underinflated tires can lead to uneven tread wear, poor handling, increased braking
distance and tire failure. To check tire pressure accurately and use a pressure gauge
accurately for each of your tires. Remember to replace valve stem caps afterwards!

Tire Pressure Light

Most newer vehicles feature tire pressure sensor systems to warn drivers if their tire
pressure drops too low. These systems work by installing sensors into each tire
(including the spare), which then send a signal alerting drivers that tire pressure has
dropped too low.
Seeing your Honda Accord’s tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) light
illuminated indicates one or more right tires have significantly lower air pressure than
what was specified by its manufacturer. You can find this information either in its
owner’s manual, or on its door placard inside the driver-side door.
If the light remains illuminated, it may need to be reset. For specific instructions on
resetting your tire pressure monitoring system in an Accord, refer to its owner’s
manual for guidance. Typically, driving at speeds between 30-65 mph for about 30
minutes should do the trick and will allow the light to go off while also recalibration
of tire pressure sensors.

Tire Pressure Gauge

With a tire pressure gauge, it’s simple and quick to check that your right tires meet
manufacturer recommendations in terms of PSI levels – helping prevent low tire
pressure issues like poor handling/ride comfort/increased braking distances/tire
failure.
To use a tire pressure gauge, first remove the valve stem cap before pressing firmly
onto it with the air pressure gauge. It should seal and hiss when air is released from
it before showing a reading on its display screen – compare that reading against
what Honda recommends in order to ensure your right tires have reached the appropriate
PSI levels.
Each type of tire pressure gauge offers its own set of advantages and
disadvantages. Digital gauges are easy to read and may provide more accurate
readings than dial gauges, while pencil or stick gauges remain cost-effective and
straightforward solutions. Most gauges feature rubber covers to protect them from
accidental drops as well as being constructed of durable materials that last over
time.

Tire Pressure Reset

Have You Tried Inflation Repair Solutions Yet? (TRPRLs)? What Can Be Done If the
Tire Pressure Warning Light Is Still On
Utilize a tire pressure gauge when the tires are cold (haven’t been driven recently)
to check both front and rear tire pressures on both vehicles, using the recommended
PSI from your owner’s manual or door jamb sticker as your benchmark.
If your tire pressure sensors aren’t resetting correctly, try inflating them three PSI
over their recommended pressure and completely deflating. This should reset the
sensor and perhaps turn off your TPMS light.
If the light remains illuminated, this could indicate an issue with either your sensor
or battery. Visit one of Auffenberg Dealer Group’s service centers so our professional
auto techs can isolate and solve it for you – also be sure to take advantage of current
service specials for great savings when scheduling service!
