Honda CR-V Tires Wheels and Sensors



  • I don't believe so. Usually, if you asked the dealer will throw them in
  • Hello,
    I was hoping some of you could help me. I am due for new tires at 40,000k. I read bad reviews on my current tires...Bridgestone, which were the original tires when I bought it. So I want to try a different, better quality tire. Any suggestions??

    Some of them came with BF Goodrich tires as OE, maybe try those?
  • So I did some research at and am considering buying Michelin Harmony or Dunlop Grandtrek ST20. However, I see that most of you have suggested Hydroedge or Triple Treds. Does any one have info to help me narrow it down again? Also, I noticed that some of you ordered online...did you have to install it on your own??!

    Don't know what kind of driving you are doing or terrain you take your CRV in... I put a set of Michelin Harmony's on our 2000 Civic, have got just over 10K on them & they have shown to be a good all around tire for us... They are quiet, appear to be wearing like iron, when it rains they seem to have decent water displacement characteristics, I noticed a improvement in handling right away. Overall am happy with them on the Civic at least. I would definately consider them (if they are still availble) when the rubber on our '07 CRV wears out. Hope this was some help to you. :)
  • Thank you for your response. Most of the time I'm driving in town and on the freeway, no steep hills or mountains. I live in Sacramento, CA, so we don't have snow just rain. I'm glad to hear the harmony tires are working out for you.

    We too live in California (SoCal-LA area) so seems as though yours & our driving conditions & habits are pretty much the same... Give these Harmony's some consideration as I stated for a middle priced Michelin I am happy with them. Whatever you choose I am sure they will be better than the OEM Bridgestones YUCK!!!
  • Yuck is exactly right! Thanks again!

    My local Honda Dealers have 2007 CRV's EX-L with either Bridgestone or Continental Tires on, my choice. Which tire would be best and why a choice of two different tires on the same model??

    I am also wondering the same thing. Though i already picked up my CRV with Bridgestones, but IMO the conti's look a bit better. Why 2 different tires on 1 model?

    I would get clarification from the dealer. I doubt they just let you chose which tires you want.

    I don't think it's as easy as saying the dealership has a Gold colored EX-L, one with one type tire and the other with the other tire. Each car has a stock number. Perhaps some of the stock numbers have Bridgestone and the others have Continental. You'd never be able to switch the tires from one stock number to the other.

    Most likely the chosen tire company did have enough of the particular tire, so some of the EX-Ls came off the line with Bridgestones, and some came off with the Continentals.
  • Don' wait to replace the stock tires. Find a good premium replacement asap, the difference will be dramatic. I bought Cooper CS4's a new touring tire,( 05 CRV LX auto.) 80000 mile warranty, 45 day return policy if you don't like the tire. Here is a review from Motor Trend. I regret not replacing the tires sooner, you can't believe the difference. (I had the Bridgestones) Goodyear Triple Tread, Michelin Harmony are good also but don't suffer thru the oem tire, it is not worth it.
  • We just put Goodyear Triple Treads on our 2005 SE. We hated the OEM tires, Bridgestone Duelers, and are VERY happy with these new tires so far. Living in the Upper Midwest the true test will be when the snow flies and the roads get icy, but these tires are definitely quieter and ride better.

    Also, the OEMs needed to be replaced at 37,000 miles. What pieces of crap!

  • I have a 07 CRV.LX. I have two sets of wheels and tires for the vehicle. this is equipt with TPMS. I have sensors on all wheels(8 in all). my problem is, when I change my summer wheels for winter, or vice versa. I have to have the sensors re- registered in to the computer. this costs $75 each time. are there any other options ?? can you disable the TPMS system without it affecting the vehicle stability assist (it's tied in with it). I wish Honda would not have added this feature. but I guess it's coming to all vehicles. thanks for any input.

    Say, "Thank you big brother government for looking out for stupid people who can't be bothered to check the tire pressure at every fill up."

    I just came back from a trip outside of US, and the things I saw, would make "ambulance chaser" lawyers jump in joy. Boardwalks with no handrails, balconies with low barriers, no warning signs on wet floors...

    It was refreshing to see a country where the government does not mandate that stupid people be preserved. I say, let natural selection take its toll...

    P.S. No, I was not in a developing country. It is a very well developed European Democratic Monarchy (has a Queen, but not UK)
  • Hi there, I have a 2007 Honda CRV with 18,000 miles and my 2 front tires (original - continental 225/65 R 17) are worn out. OK I now know that I should have been having my tires rotated. My husband wants to buy just 2 new tires to put on the front and keep the original ones on the back. The tire shop suggest 4 new ones which will cost about $600 for the all weather, 60,000 mile warranty. We live where we get snow and ice all winter so I get nervous driving with worn tires. I am thinking about all weather and having them put those slashes in them for the snow because I guess the snow tires wear out so fast. Is my husband right that I only need 2 new tires?
  • I'm going to have mine disabled, for free, the next time they light up the dashboard with a false positive. The dealer said they'd do it if I have the warning light problem again.
    I got an '07 back in April or so and within a month the tire pressure warning light came on. I checked and re-checked with my gauge and ones at my trusty local shop and the pressure was just as I try to keep it: the recommended 30 psi.
    I tried treating it like a computer and re-booted it: I put extra air in it and then let a lot out before pumping it back up to 30 psi. No luck.
    So, though I'm going to be doing all my own maintenance, I took the dealer up on that offer of the first oil change for free at 5,000 miles and asked them to make the warning light go out, too.
    I got a call a couple of hours later and they said the car was ready and that the tires just needed some more air. Hmmmm. I asked if the light was out. No, came the reply, but after you drive it a mile it will go out. I asked that they please drive it a mile before I come to pick it up because my wife and I scheduled our day around getting this done -- done right.
    Later, he called again. The light is out. He said the tires need 32 psi. I said the manual says 30 psi. He said it's really supposed to be 32 psi. Honda is indeed a precision instrument.
    I picked it up.
    The next morning, when the tires were plenty cool in the driveway, I checked the pressure. My first concern is that two of the valve stem caps were so loose they were wobbly: probably a single turn of the wrist with the cap between thumb and forefinger, when it takes at least three such turns.
    But more disturbing was this, if I recall correctly: two tires were at 33 psi, one at 32 psi and one at 37 psi. That is not a typo.
    Some days later the service manager called with one of those pro forma follows up to ask if everything went OK, in the style that says he expects to hear just that. I told him what I just wrote here. He didn't say a lot.
    I'm sure there are plenty of good mechanics at the dealership. But there are plenty willing to kiss off an assignment. Quality private shops can't indulge in that. They do good work or they lose.
    (By the way might remember me as one of those guys battling Honda over my '05 pulling to the right a couple of years ago. I won BBB arbitration and, at my request, instead of cash they gave me a great deal on an '07. I noticed somewhere that they re-designed the front end on the '07 to eliminate some of that same torque steer they said didn't exist.)

    It depends...

    If your Honda CR-V is 2 wheel drive, then yes, you can get away with just the two new tires. (This may be the case since your front tires wore down so fast.) However, if your CR-V is all-wheel drive (AWD), then sadly, you will have to replace all 4.

    With AWD, all the tires have to match and be of the same tread depth (or very close). Otherwise you'll cause a lot of damage.

    Also, I don't recommend slashing the tires, especially if you have AWD. I had a 2005 CR-V with AWD and it handled the snow and ice just fine.

    As blueiegod would say- read the manual.
  • It is an AWD but I think it is something like a real-time AWD and just kicks in when needed. Thats what I understood anyway. Did you have all weather tires or snow tires for yours? Thanks for the response
  • sky23213sky23213 Posts: 296
    You understood correctly - AWD kicks in only when slippage is detected. The thing is that with tires with different thread wear the computer will always read different revolutions (due to slippage) between the front and the back and will engage. This will cause the system to disengage when overheated (safety feature on our CR-Vs to prevent damage).
    Also, the other pair will wear out pretty soon too - common malady of the OEM tires (someone here said that these are made to different specs compared to the same tire available aftermarket to give you that nice, soft new-car feel). My original BF Goodrich Traction T/As lasted only 26K (the same tire is warranted to 60K aftermarket).
    Then, what's your family's safety worth? I never cheap out on tires and brakes. Slap 4 new Michelin Hydroedge or GY Trippletred (the tires of choice for the crowd here, judging from previous posts) and you'll be set for the next 3-4 years and 70-80K miles.
    And it never hurts to do some research - read through the "Tires, tires, tires" discussion; go to and read the ratings and comments.
    Good Luck!
  • Like Plimy said, blueiegod is right, you need to read the owner's manual. It's a small investment to make considering how much one spends on a new car. In order for your AWD to work correctly the tires must be rotated regularily so they exhibit even wear so the system can detect slippage correctly. You won't get that with two old tires and two new ones. I don't remember what the manual said off the top of my head but I believe you can even damage the system by not keeping your car up the way you're supposed to because this type of system is only meant for short periods, but unbalanced tires can cause it to work constantly, thereby wearing/breaking the system. Hopefully I'm wrong and/or this isn't the case in your circumstance. In any case, you had to learn this lesson the hard way unfortunately .


    I live in South Dakota so I know all about the winter driving hazards. Firstly, the CR-V is AWESOME on ice and snow, even with the crappy OEM tires. However, since you are going to have to buy new tires anyway, get good all season ones. Tires, not stability control, not antilock, not 4WD, not EBD, not traction control, are your best ally in bad weather. Those systems only work as well as the tires. We just put Goodyear TripleTreds on our '05 and while we haven't got to test them out in the bad weather (thank goodness), I heard nothing but good things about them. There are several other brands people have recommended as well; you just have to read this thread a bit. (All this reading sucks, huh?) And for heaven's sake don't slash your tires! All you'll do is shorten their lifespan. If you buy good all season tires you'll be fine.
