Honda Accord Tires: Sizes, All-Season and Winter Tire Suggestions
The lifespan of your Honda Accord tires will vary depending on how you drive your vehicle and whether you are driving on summer, winter, or all-season tires, according to Kicking Tires. Driving on under-inflated tires will shorten their lifespan as well as driving with your Accord out of alignment. Kicking Tires estimates the life of a tire to be anywhere between 20,000 and 50,000 miles, but there is no set interval for when your tires will need to be replaced. Whenever the time for replacement comes, here is a list of tires that Honda equips their vehicles with that you may chose to fit your Accord with.
Sizes for Honda Accord Tires
Tire sizes vary between Accord models and trim levels. Honda advises sticking to the original tire size. “Honda vehicles meet all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards when they are originally distributed, and modification could affect the safety and/or operation of the vehicle, as well as remove it from compliance with specifications and standards mandated by the Federal Government,” according to Honda.

Honda Accord Tires
The original equipment tires that Honda uses can come from any of eight dealers. These dealers include: Bridgestone, Firestone, Continental, General Tire, Goodyear, Dunlop, Michelin, or Yokohama.
- The Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02 is said to improve fuel efficiency, offer a quieter ride, and improve traction in wet conditions.
- Firestone has the Firehawk Wide Oval AS. These tires offer better fuel efficiency, a quieter ride, and optimum performance in wet conditions.
- The Continental PureContact tires are also designed for wet breaking as well as enhanced fuel efficiency.
- General Tire has the G-Max AS-03. This tire has a V-shaped pattern that directs water away from the tread and traction is enhanced by the grooves in the tire.
- The Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max tire is frequently the tire that Honda equips their new Honda Accords with and may be the tire your Accord came with. This tire improves fuel efficiency by having a low-rolling resistance and provides optimum traction in wet and dry conditions.
- The Dunlop Signature II tires direct water away from the tire and grip is enhanced in wet and snow conditions.
- Higher-trim level Accords arrive at dealerships with Michelin Primacy MXV4 tires. This tire reduces road noise and its tread provides grip in rain and snow.
- The Yokohama AVID ENVigor provides better fuel efficiency and angled groove walls help push water away. Road noise is lessened due to variations in tread and peak control is available in wet and dry conditions.
Even though all-season tires can handle wet conditions, winter tires perform better in winter conditions especially in temperatures below 45 degrees.
- The Continental ExtremeWinterContact tires provide reduced braking distances on snow and ice. They are also resistant to hydroplaning.
- The Goodyear Ultra Grip Winter tire has several biting edges and a “directional tread pattern” that grip roads that are snowy and icy. The tire also provides a shorter stopping distance on the snow and ice than all-season tires.
- Dunlop Winter Maxx tires have wide grooves that improve wet handling and traction in the snow. The asymmetric tread design improves handling in wet conditions and in snow, but also in dry conditions.
- The Michelin X-Ice Xi3 provides a shorter stopping distance on snow as compared to all-season tires. Braking, cornering, as well as acceleration are improved due to the design of the tread and sipes.
- Yokohama W.drive tires provide optimum traction in snowy and wet conditions, as well as in dry conditions. The tire has a middle-of-the-road rating for road noise and comfort.
- General Tire’s Altimax Arctic tire has an integrated, multi-angle 3-D sipe system that maximizes traction. An all-weather dual tread compound keeps the tire flexible in cold temperatures.
- Firestone’s Winterforce tire has a directional tread pattern that optimizes performance in wet and dry conditions. High-sipe density and a 3-D tread pattern improve traction in wet conditions and on ice.
Bridgestone has winter tire options, however they didn’t meet the size specs for the Honda Accord.
