Honda CR-V Tires: Sizes, All-Season and Winter Tires
The lifespan of your Honda CR-V tires will vary depending on how you drive and whether you are driving on all-season, summer, or winter tires, according to Kicking Tires. Driving with your CR-V out of alignment will shorten the tires’ lifespan as well as driving on under-inflated tires. Kicking Tires estimates the life of a tire to be anywhere between 20,000 and 50,000 miles, however there is no set interval for when your Honda CR-V tires will need to be replaced. Check out this list of tires that Honda fits their new vehicles with so you have an idea of the different brands of tires available.
Sizes for Honda CR-V Tires
Tire sizes vary between CR-V trim levels. Honda advises sticking to the CR-V’s 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 CR-V Tires
The original equipment tires that Honda uses can come from any of eight dealers. These dealers include: Firestone, Continental, Bridgestone, General Tire, Goodyear, Michelin, Dunlop, or Yokohama.
- The Continental CrossContact LX20 tire offers a quiet, comfortable ride with improved handling. Handling is improved due to the reinforced shoulders. A lower rolling resistance improves fuel efficiency.
- The General Tire Altimax RT43 tire has a peak anti-slip design that improves traction on icy roads. The tires also provide a quiet, comfortable ride.
- Goodyear’s Assurance Fuel Max tire is made for CUVs and SUVs. The tire has an outer dry zone that enhances handling on dry roads and on wet roads dual aqua channels propel water away from the tread. The tire also improves fuel efficiency by having a low-rolling resistance.
- The Dunlop Signature CS tire uses VersaLoad Technology to provide consistent handling and a comfortable ride. Road noise is lessened due to Multi-Pitch Tread Design Technology.
- The Michelin Defender tire utilizes IntelliSipe Technology to improve grip and lessen the vehicle’s stopping distance.The technology also improves acceleration, braking, cornering, as well as fuel economy.
- Yokohama AVID Ascend tires offer a quiet ride through a multi-pitch tread design. An optimized tread profile helps enhance rolling resistance, which positively affects fuel economy.
- Firestone Precision Touring tires offer a fuel efficient, quiet ride. Silica increases the flexibility of the tread compound allowing for improved traction.
- The Bridgestone Turanza EL 400-02 tire offers a quiet, comfortable ride while having improved traction in wet conditions and increased handling in wet and dry conditions. The Bridgestone Dueler H/T 687 tires improve fuel efficiency while offering a quiet and comfortable ride. The tread is computer designed so traction is improved in wet conditions.
Even though all-season tires can handle wet conditions, winter tires perform better in snow, ice, and temperatures below 45 degrees.
- The Continental ExtremeWinterContact tires reduce braking distances on snow and ice as compared to all-season tires. Inclined grooves direct water away from the tire to prevent hydroplaning.
- The Bridgestone Ultra Grip Winter tire has great stopping power on snow and a directional tread pattern enhances traction in the snow. Wide tread grooves push snow and slush away from the tread to help traction on wet roads.
- Dunlop’s Grandtrek SJ6 tire has zigzag grooves in the center that provide enhanced traction and braking in winter conditions. A glass fiber-reinforced tread helps with traction on the ice.
- Michelin’s Latitude X-Ice Xi2 tire is designed for SUVs, pickups, and crossovers. Acceleration and braking power are improved due to the tire’s wide tread. The FleX-Ice compound in the tire allows the tire to stay flexible even in the coldest temperatures. Road noise is at a minimum thanks to Michelin Comfort Control Technology.
- The Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v tire performs well in snow, slush and on ice. It provides middle-of-the-road noise and comfort performance.
- Bridgestone’s Blizzak WS80 tires have a Hydrophilic Coating that improves stopping on snow and ice. This model has more biting edges than the Blizzak WS70, so handling in the snow and slush is even better on these tires.
- 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. This tire only fits the LX model CR-V.
- The Firestone Winterforce UV tire has a high-sipe density and 3-D tread patterns that provide traction on ice and in snow. The directional tread pattern optimizes wet and dry performance. This tire also only fits the LX model CR-V.
