Honda HR-V Tires: Sizes, All-Season and Winter Tires
The lifespan of your Honda HR-V tires will vary depending on how you drive and whether you are driving on summer, all-season, or winter tires, according to Kicking Tires. Driving on under-inflated tires as well as driving with your HR-V out of alignment will shorten the tires’ lifespan. 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 HR-V tires will need to be replaced. Check out this list of potential replacement tires for your Honda HR-V.
Sizes for Honda HR-V Tires
Honda advises sticking to the HR-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 HR-V Tires
The original equipment tires that Honda uses can come from any of eight dealers. These dealers include: Continental, Firestone, General Tire, Bridgestone, Yokohama, Goodyear, Dunlop, or Michelin.
- Michelin’s Premier A/S tire is able to grip under wet conditions thanks to EverGrip technology that uses silica in the tread compound. This tire also has great traction in the winter due to sunflower oil in the tire’s compound. The tire also provides a quiet ride by utilizing Michelin’s comfort control technology.
- The Goodyear Assurance All-Season tire has multiple biting edges that provide traction in wet, dry, and snowy conditions. Large shoulder blocks provide confident handling and wide tread grooves improve traction on wet roads.
- The Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 tire improves fuel efficiency and offers a quiet, comfortable ride. The tire has a fuel saver sidewall compound that helps to lower rolling resistance.
- General Tire’s Altimax RT tire provides a quiet, comfortable ride. Peak, anti-slip design technology improves traction on slippery roads and low surface abrasion technology promotes even treadwear.
- Firestone’s Firehawk Wide Oval AS tire was developed for wet and dry handling, which is possible thanks to a “specially formulated tread compound.”
- The Dunlop Signature II tire offers a comfortable ride with smooth handling thanks to VersaLoad Technology. Evaqua Grooves help direct water away from the tire’s tread.
- The Yokohama Avid Ascend tire helps improve fuel efficiency by providing a lower rolling resistance. A variable pitch tread means a quieter ride and all-season traction is possible with 3-D adaptive sipes.
- Continental’s PureContact tire is an all-season tire that delivers a smooth, quiet ride while also promoting fuel efficiency thanks to EcoPlus Technology.
Even though all-season tires can handle wet conditions, winter tires have better handling and traction on snowy roads. Winter tires also perform better at temperatures below 45 degrees.
- Goodyear’s Ultra Grip Winter tire improves traction on ice and in wet conditions thanks to a directional tread pattern. Multiple biting edges help provide grip and the tire can be fitted for metal studs for enhanced traction in snowy conditions.
- Bridgestone’s Blizzak WS80 tire provides confident stopping power on ice and snow. Grip and handling are also improved on snow and in winter driving conditions.
- Firstone’s Winterforce tire provides solid traction in ice, snow, and wet conditions.
- The General Tire 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 low temperatures.
- Dunlop’s Winter Maxx tire is designed to have maximized tread-to-ice contact. Snow traction and wet handling is improved with the tire’s wide grooves and lugs.
- Yokohama’s iceGUARD iG52c tire has triple, 3-D sipes that creates more biting edges for improved traction on snowy and icy roads. Water is wicked away from the tire thanks to absorptive silica.
- The Continental ExtremeWinterContact tire has a special tread design that provides maximum grip and enhanced braking in the snow.
Michelin has winter tire options, however they didn’t meet the size specs for Honda HR-V tires.
