winter tires

  1. Wheels, Suspension & Brakes
    I used to switch between A/S and winter tires on my 17-year Civic. Costco would charge $80 now for the installation, that is $160 each year. I do feel winter tires are necessary since they make uphill start never fail for a front-wheel drive car, plus absolutely better handling and shorter...

    I recently purchased a 2016 Accord LX. There were 11 miles on the odo at delivery, the car was originally inspected by the dealership in April 2016, and had been in the showroom for a while. 1. Is there any reason to change the oil right away, given that it's been sitting for over a year? I...

    Hi, I bought the Honda Accord 2016 Touring model, which comes with 235/40-R19 stock tires and oversize front brake calipers. The recommended specs for downsized winter tires on Honda's website are as follows: 1) 215/55-R17 2) 225/55-R17 I currently own winter tires that are 225/50-R17, which...

    Hello all ! A few weeks ago I purchased a 2014 Accord EX-L IL4 Sedan, and since it snows here I have looked into winter tires with dedicated rims. The car came with 17" rims. The dealership was uncertain if I could put 16" steel rims on my car (they would rub, it was stated) and of course the...

    I'm driving Accord 2010 with winter tires without TPMS sensors (which means TPMS light is on during winter). Last week when temperature dropped my TPMS light went off and instead my low tire pressure light came on which didn't make sense at all since there is no sensor to send any signals. I...
