Honda CR-V: Checking and Maintaining Tires / Checking Tires

Honda CR-V 2017-2022 Owner's Manual / Maintenance / Checking and Maintaining Tires / Checking Tires

To safely operate your vehicle, your tires must be of the proper type and size, in good condition with adequate tread, and properly inflated.

Inflation guidelines

Properly inflated tires provide the best combination of handling, tread life, and comfort. Refer to the driver’s doorjamb label or specifications page for the specified pressure.

Underinflated tires wear unevenly, adversely affect handling and fuel economy, and are more likely to fail from overheating.

Overinflated tires make your vehicle ride harshly, are more prone to road hazards, and wear unevenly.

Every day before you drive, look at each of the tires. If one looks lower than the others, check the pressure with a tire gauge.

At least once a month or before long trips, use a gauge to measure the pressure in all tires, including the spare. Even tires in good condition can lose 1–2 psi (10–20 kPa, 0.1–0.2 kgf/cm 2 ) per month.

Inspection guidelines

Every time you check inflation, also examine the tires and valve stems.

Look for:

  • Bumps or bulges on the side or in the tread. Replace the tire if you find any cuts, splits, or cracks in the side of the tire. Replace it if you see fabric or cord.
  • Remove any foreign objects and inspect for air leaks.
  • Uneven tread wear. Have a dealer check the wheel alignment.
  • Excessive tread wear.
  • Cracks or other damage around valve stem.

WARNING

Using tires that are excessively worn or improperly inflated can cause a crash in which you can be seriously hurt or killed.

Follow all instructions in this owner’s manual regarding tire inflation and maintenance.

Measure the air pressure when tires are cold. This means the vehicle has been parked for at least three hours, or driven less than 1 mile (1.6 km). If necessary, add or release air until the specified pressure is reached.

If checked when hot, tire pressure can be as much as 4–6 psi (30–40 kPa, 0.3–0.4 kgf/cm 2 ) higher than if checked when cold.

Whenever tire pressure is adjusted, you must calibrate the TPMS.

Have a dealer check the tires if you feel a consistent vibration while driving. New tires and any that have been removed and reinstalled should be properly balanced.

Check the spare tire pressure once a month or before long trips.

    Honda CR-V. How the Front Airbags Work

    While your seat belt restrains your torso, the front airbag provides supplemental protection for your head and chest.

    The front airbags deflate immediately so that they won't interfere with the driver's visibility or the ability to steer or operate other controls.
