Tire Balance

The balancing tires equally distributes the weight of the tire and wheel assembly to rotate smoothly at high speed. The tires may be out of balance with normal tire wear. At four tires and wheels can be balanced during rotation of tire and when new tires are installed.

The special equipment rotates the tire and wheel assembly to measure vibrations, and then the technician installs the wheel weights as necessary to eliminate vibration.


Tire condition / depth of the tread

Supervision of normal wear of the tread helps plan future replacement tire irregular wear of the tread may indicate problems with the pressure of the tires, wheel alignment, balancing the tire or lack of rotation. The depths of the tread of a new tire typically begin with 9/32 “to 12/32” of the tread. Make sure that the depth of the tread on your tires is sufficient for road conditions and weather.

Tire pressure

Properly inflated tires provide the best combination of handling, tread life and rolling comfort. The air pressure within the tire supports the weight of the vehicle. The tire pressure is the specification of inflation pressure, measured in pounds per square inch (PSI), for the type, size and application of the given tire.

The inflation pressure of tires, PSI, cold is on the information label tire, located on the side door jamb of the driver. Because the tires can lose one to two PSI of tire pressure per month, the tire pressures should be checked regularly.

Control System Tire Pressure (TPMS)

Since 2008, each Honda vehicle has been equipped with a control system tire pressure (TPMS), which monitors the pressure in all four tires and alerts the driver if pressure in any tire is significantly low. Drivers should also regularly check the tire pressure with an accurate gauge.

Some Honda TPMS battery systems have sensors inside the wheels. The batteries in these sensors have a life expectancy of 7 to 10 years. When a battery of any sensor fails, an indicator lights up on the dashboard and the system no longer monitors the tire pressure.

Tire rotation

During rotation of the tire at the time of service, tire and wheel assemblies move from one position to another to more evenly distribute the wear and maximize the life of the tire. The rotation pattern depends on the vehicle and the design of the tire. Because the front tires rotate and propel the vehicle forward, the front tires are used differently than rear tires.

The tire rotation is regular maintenance to be performed as recommended and necessary to maintain warranty coverage of the tire. (See warranty brochure tire manufacturer provided the vehicle for details.)

Wheel Alignment

A wheel alignment adjustment is the angle that the tires made in relation to the road surface and each other. Primary alignment angles are camber, tilt axis and convergence.

A wheel alignment is performed after replacing tires or suspension components, after impact with a pothole or curb, or when the following conditions occur: abnormal wear of the tire, wheel displacement or concerns handling ( lead, pulling, wandering, spinning).

The technical measure alignment angles using sophisticated equipment, then possibly adjust or replace components of the suspension as needed to adjust the alignment to the original specifications Honda.
