tire pressure?

So my 08 Accord chirps when I accelerate fast and shift gears.

Any ideas?
If you have the V6 that's normal, I can chirp it up to third even with the traction control on. It's a Japanese managed/American engineered hot rod!

If you have the 4 cylinder, I can still see the ability to chirp the tires in 1st or second. If you drop the clutch over 5k RPM the K24A ain't no slouch either.

I dont quite get if this is a question or statement lol I always figured it was normal for tires to chirp on manual cars if you were accelerating at lower gears. Thought it just meant your were hitting the friction point correctly?

Its probably the serp. Belt slipping. My 11' 4cyl does it too going into 2nd and 3rd if I'm on it hard 7000-7200 and upshift hard. Sometimes it'll bark the tires other times the gear change is too much of a rpm difference and it will make the belt slip.

With that being said I still continue to do it and I'm sure its hell on the timing chain and guides. I probaly should have bought a v6 this things a dud, but I get great mileage from it so it'll have to do.

56k on it now and it gets 100 more almost everyday here in nyc

No, it's not the tires. I get it shifting from first to second under acceleration.
It's a mixture of how this car manages its acceleration gs and tire pressure is a key factor too.. But I ultimately think its how you let off of the clutch I noticed if I'm too quick it jolts and the engine doesn't keep roaring if I ride it too long it squeals and yes I have the k24 i4. Also colder weather and sand or anything wet doesn't help this but its all in the clutch and how the car shifts its weight I think

tire pressure?
I forget is it lower tire pressure that makes it squeal more or higher?

I believe it would be higher tire pressure, but this squeal that lasts for around a second sounds like it may be a belt.

I don't think there is enough torque to chirp the tires when shifting from first to second.

I forget is it lower tire pressure that makes it squeal more or higher?
