As one of the most important components of your vehicle, your Honda’s tires require regular maintenance and attention to ensure that your morning commute remains worry-free. If you’re not a tire expert, never fear! Our Vero Beach Honda service department will fill you in on some of the most common questions people have about their Honda’s tires.
If your Honda’s tires are unable to hold air, fail the penny test, or have something poking out from it, you’re going to need new Honda tires. Any of these signs are proof that your tire needs immediate attention and that your Honda should find its way to our service team. To check your tire’s tread depth, insert a penny upside down (head-down) into the tread, if Lincoln’s entire head is visible, you don’t have enough tread and you’ll need new tires soon.
It’s important to know how to locate the sizing for tires that will help your Honda perform at its best. On the front of the tire, just above the rim, you’ll see a series of numbers, with P235/75R15, P205/65R15, and the P215/70R15 being the more common. These tell you the tire type, what width they are, wheel diameter, construction, and aspect ratio. If you aren’t sure, your owner’s manual and our Honda service team can help.
Don’t make the common mistake of overinflating your tires or letting them run low. You can find the appropriate amount of air required for your tires on the driver’s side doorjamb. You should always check your pressure to ensure it’s at the right level.
Most vehicles have their tires rotated with every oil change, but your owner’s manual can give you clues as to whether this is right for your vehicle. Our service team is ready to answer your questions regarding your tires or your Honda model.
