What is the right tire pressure for the 2017 Honda Accord Sedan?
It is no secret that tires are extremely important parts of any vehicle. Tires not only make for a smooth and comfortable ride, they also help to keep you safe on the roads by gripping the surfaces and holding you steady. In order to perform as intended, tires need to be inflated to a specific amount of air pressure. Not all tires are the same, so we will look at the tire pressure recommendations of one specific vehicle in the Honda lineup here, the 2017 Accord Sedan. What is the right tire pressure for the 2017 Honda Accord Sedan? Read on for more details.
The 2017 Honda Accord Sedan is available in seven trim levels: LX, Sport, Sport Special Edition, EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring. Between these models, there are three tire sizes. The LX model is equipped with 205/65R16 95H tires. The Sport, Sport Special Edition, and Touring models are equipped with P235/40R19 96V tires. Finally, the EX, EX-L, and EX-L V-6 models are equipped with P215/55R17 tires. The front tires for the LX and Sport models have a recommended pressure level of 33 psi, 230 kPa. The front tires for the rest of the models have a recommended pressure level of 33 psi, 225 kPa. The rear tires of the LX and Sport models are recommended to have a pressure of 32 psi, 220 kPa, and the rear tires of the remaining models have a recommended pressure of 33 psi, 225 kPa.
It is recommended to check your tire pressure when the temperature of the tires is cool, which is to say, after it has been parked for three hours or longer. Checking the pressure right after a drive could result in inaccurate numbers. You can check your pressure with a tire pressure gauge, a very useful tool for the task. Overinflated or underinflated tires could wear unevenly and provide poor driving conditions, not to mention potentially result in accidents, so it is vital to keep an eye on your pressure often.
