Tire Condition/Tread Depth


What is it?

Monitoring normal tread wear helps plan for future tire replacement. Uneven or irregular tread wear can indicate problems with tire pressure, wheel alignment, tire balance, or lack of rotation. New tire tread depths typically begin with 9/32″ to 12/32″ of tread. Make sure your tires’ tread depths are sufficient for road and weather conditions.

What if I ignore it?

  • Loss of braking effectiveness, steering control, and traction in wet weather
  • Increased braking distances
  • Increased risk of hydroplaning
  • Low tread depth restricts water, slush and snow from escaping between tire tread and the road.
  • Minimum tread depth recommended for vehicles likely to encounter listed condition: o Snow = 5/32″
  • Rain = 4/32″ or Dry = 2/32″
  • Tread depth under 2/32″ may violate applicable law.

What is it?

  • Increase safety performance
  • Provide a more enjoyable ride
  • Help ensure your vehicle meets its original load and speed rating specifications
  • Match the physical dimensions, internal construction, tread design, and tread compound of the original tires
  • Help achieve performance characteristics originally intended for your vehicle

What are the benefits of Original Equipment (OE) Tires?
Original Equipment (OE) Tires:

  • Developed by Honda engineers who work closely with the original equipment tire manufacturer to develop a tire that optimizes all the performance attributes of your vehicle
  • Undergo an exclusive Honda development process with testing to ensure the same level of performance
  • Extensively tested in the lab, on the track, and on the road to ensure that the tires provide the right balance of performance, comfort. wear, and fuel efficiency
  • Help your vehicle attain the original performance characteristics to maintain the enjoyment you’ve had with your Honda since day one
  • Are the only tires Honda recommends for your vehicle

Non OE Tire Options:

May share some characteristics of the original tires, but because of the number of variable design characteristics, they may perform differently, potentially altering the ride comfort, interior noise, wear rate, fuel efficiency, steering feel, snow traction, and wet and dry handling and braking performance you may be accustomed to
May be available from your Honda dealer, but can vary in certain specifications from your vehicle’s original tires
Although we recommend that you help retain your vehicle’s original performance characteristics by choosing OE specified tires, you may have other needs that could be met with another tire that was not tested by or developed in conjunction with Honda
