I have not tried that yet. I just parked the Accord. And it will be parked for atleast 7 days. So, I still have time to try that.Did you try the 72 mph cutover on cruise?
Just curious - nice numbers - about 2x what I see on my 2.0t Touring, but one doesn't buy the 2.0t to save gas
Please tell me you only use that off road?So, I decided to order a 22 inch laser light bar from China. I ordered it with a cigarette plug, so I can plug it in any car, suv or 4x4 and use it. I also ordered from Amazon a magnetic base for the light.
Believe it or not, this light bar is for my Honda Accord. Or any car I wish to use it on. If I take a road trip that I will be driving at night, I plan to install this on the roof of my Accord or the hood. I still have to play with fitment and see what I like and what gives me the best output.
To be honest, no plans any time soon to upgrade the wheels. As for the tires, I think I may definitely go with a different brand when these need replacing. But that will be in atleast 2 years with these oem set.Are you planning on tires and /or wheels upgrade? I know the original equipped tires are pretty much meh in term of noise control and comfort.
I think that is a good plan. Slightly taller and slimmer tire. You may get a bit better mileage also, though it might not be noticeable. Plus, I am surprised you have a Touring with 17 inch wheels. My guess is you swapped out the oem 19 inch wheels for the 17. Well, the good thing about your Touring is it is fully loaded so you already have a good suspension tuned for comfort plus your 17 inch wheels, it must be a really smooth drive on the highway doing 75mph.The most road trip I did was from Atlanta, GA to Cincinnati, OH and back. A total of roughly 920 miles round trip. I have a Touring so the double laminated sides windows help reducing wind noise a lot, which left me with some noticeable road noise from bad pavement. As mine has over 30K miles now, I'm considering upgrade those tires to some kind of GT/touring tires and changing the size a little bit to get more side wall too, so I'm thinking of 215/55R17 instead of the original 225/50R17.
I too have a 2020 Honda Accord Hybrid and do want a spare tire too. What I need to ask is have you tried mounting your spare, both on the front as well as the rear? I've heard that they're different...I wanted a full size spare, so I went to discount tire and bought a brand new 225/50/17. I went home and installed it. It fits very well, but it is too high for the floor mat to cover it flush.
I really thought I could make it work, but no way to get it flush and no better place to keep that spare in the trunk. So, I returned it.
I ordered a donut spare off ebay for $170 shipped. It should be delivered this week. When I get it, I will make sure the tire pressure is right before I install it in my trunk.
Can't afford to drive this car without a spare tire.
I got my spare tire delivered today by FedEx.
The spare tire I bought is 145/80D R17. The normal spare tire in the Accord is 135/80D R17
Looking at the thread, I don't know for sure if this tire has been mounted on a car and driven on, but I will clean it up on my day off with all the jack and accessories before putting in my trunk and I hope it fits perfectly.
