Checking Tire Pressure

If your Accord‘s tires are underinflated, you may experience decreased grip and
responsiveness. Thankfully, this issue can be easily solved; simply remove the valve
cap to check tire pressure at home using an accurate pressure gauge for accurate
readings.
Notably, tire pressure recommendations vary by model; for more specifics on this
matter please consult the sticker inside your driver’s door or owner’s manual.
Typically Honda sedans like the Accord require 32 PSI while SUVs such as Pilot and
Passport need 35 PSI for optimal tire pressure levels.
Your vehicle’s TPMS will notify you if one or more tires is low by activating the Low
Tire Pressure Light in the instrument cluster. It is advisable to check your tires
frequently; for example once per month or before significant seasonal temperature
changes. Doing this can ensure they remain properly inflated, improving fuel
economy, ride quality and tread life.

Resetting the Low Tire Pressure Light

If the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) light illuminates, this indicates at least
one tire is under-inflated and should be checked individually using a tire pressure
gauge before filling them back up to their recommended pressure levels.
If the pressure in your tires is lower than desired and has been adjusted
appropriately, but the system controller light remains illuminated, this could be
indicative of an issue within it. To further troubleshoot this situation, consult the
Honda owner’s manual for guidance.
Maintaining proper tire inflation is crucial to safe driving, even wear and fuel
efficiency. Checking and resetting the pressure with air can be done easily but if the
issue persists it is best to seek professional assistance from an experienced
mechanic. Temperature fluctuations can affect tire pressures as well as needing
frequent checks refilled to compensate. This is particularly pertinent during
wintertime when colder temperatures may cause them to reduce significantly.

Choosing the Right Tires for Your Honda Accord

Your Honda Accord’s tires are essential components to its performance, handling,
and safety. By properly inflating, balancing, and pressurizing them you will save
money on gas; improve traction/responsiveness/responsiveness/responsiveness as
well as reduce vibrations in the steering wheel.
Honda Accord comes equipped with all-season touring and grand-touring tires that
offer excellent comfort, fuel economy and traction. When the time comes for
replacement tires to be purchased at Coggin Honda Jacksonville has some of the
best names available at competitive prices.
The Michelin Premier A/S tire is an enduring, carefree tire for their Honda Accord
that stands out from the competition due to its durable construction and robust
rubber compound, yet offers only an average treadwear warranty of 60,000 miles
compared to typical A/S models. Other top rated tires for your Accord include the
moderately priced BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport as well as newcomers
Vredestein Quatrac 5 which have garnered praise since arriving on the market.

Keeping Your Tires Properly Inflated

If your TPMS indicator light has illuminated, it is time to conduct an accurate tire
pressure check. A tire pressure gauge is the best way to do this – always referring to
the recommended cold tire pressure value found either on the side of your tire, in
your owner’s manual or inside your driver’s door jamb as a starting point. Also take
care to compare both front and rear tire pressures as their values could differ
significantly.
Keep your tires properly inflated to optimize handling and fuel economy in your
Honda Accord. Underinflated tires may lead to uneven wear and traction issues,
while overinflated ones could potentially result in a blowout.
Be sure to regularly monitor the pressure in both of your tires at least once every
month and more often in hotter or colder climates, and check both of your spare tire
pressure as well. Be sure to remove each valve cap from each tire, press your tire
pressure gauge against its stem until there’s no hissing and listen carefully for
hissing sounds before placing back onto their valve caps.
