Pacific Honda is the best place for you to buy your tires

Our dealership offers competitive pricing and carries original equipment tires for your Honda.

In some scenarios, tires can be the most ignored and underrated component of your vehicle. Yet, they are the only interface between your vehicle and the road. They provide the traction you need to accelerate, steer and stop. Pacific Honda knows your vehicle best and we will ensure that it is equipped with the best tires to suit your driving needs.

Determining Your Needs: Winter VS. All-Season

Winter: Winter tire stay flexible in temperatures below 7 degrees to provide the necessary traction for cold-weather driving conditions. They reduce braking distance on cold, wet, ice and snow-covered roads in comparison to all-season tires.The traction provided by winter tires enhances the performance of anti-lock braking system (ABS); wheel stability assist (VSA), traction control and all-wheel drive in winter conditions. Vehicles with winter tires in cold weather conditions have a 40% less chance of being involved in a collision, versus one with all-season tires.

All-Season: All season tires are designed to provide traction and durability in a wide variety of seasonal road conditions. However, they cannot provide the same levels of traction in winter conditions as a proper winter tire. Best suited for temperatures above 7 degrees.

Extending the life of your tires:

Up to 70% of vehicles on the road has at least one under-inflated tire. Therefore, being aware as well as maintaining tire pressure can help extend tire life and reduce fuel over- consumption. Every time you check your tires, you should also examine them for damage, foreign objects and excessive wear.

Wheel Alignment:

Misaligned wheels can cause uneven and rapid wear to your tires. It is normal for wheel alignment to change through the life of the vehicle, as wear accumulates and especially if the vehicle is driven on rough roads. If accelerated or abnormal tire damage is discovered during vehicle maintenance, or your Honda has developed symptoms such as pulling to one side or that the steering wheel is not center when driving straight, the wheel alignment should be check and corrected if need be.

Wheel Balancing:

Proper wheel balance helps prevent unnecessary wear to the tires, steering, and suspension components. Wheel balance typically changes as tires wear down, and it should be check periodically especially if you have noticed any speed-related vibrations while driving.

Wheel alignment should always be done when replacing tires and when a tire has been removed from a wheel for any reason.

How can your tires affect your fuel economy?

Anything that increases a tire's rolling resistance or friction with the road surface will increase the amount of work required of the engine, and therefore affects the amount of fuel being burned.

Tire Pressure:

Under-inflammation increases a tire's rolling resistance. Therefore, leading to increased level of fuel consumption. Do not wait for your tires to "look" low, or the TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) warns you that they are low.Tires that are 56kPa (8 PSI) low can increase fuel consumption by 4%.

Wheel Alignment:

Wheel misalignment increases the resistance of the tires to roll in the direction or vehicle movement, which requires extra engine power to overcome and more fuel to be consumed. The increased "drag" caused could increase fuel consumption by up to 25%.

Tire Tread Depth:

Automobile and light truck tires that are manufactured for sale in North America have wear indicators ("wear bars") molded into the tire tread at 2/32" depth. Having your tires at 2/32" is the minimum legal tread depth permitted on public roads. When a tire's tread is worn further than the indicators, the tires is considered illegal for further use and must be replaced.

Some-all season tires have a second wear indicator at 4/32" tread depth. When worn to this depth, tires may no longer be suitable for use in snow and may experience hydroplaning in severe wet conditions.

Winter tires may have a second wear indicator at 6/32" that indicates when the tire may no longer be suitable for use in snow.

Tire Safety: Tire Maintenance and Safety

Replacement Purchase Sale:

Proper tire care and safety is simple and easy. The Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) recommends taking five minutes every month and before every long trip to check your tires (including the spare).

Just remember to be Tire Smart and to play your Part.Using the simple acronym of PART: (Pressure, Alignment, Rotation, Tread).

Pressure: Under inflation results in unnecessary tire stress, irregular wear, loss of control and accidents. A tire can lose up to half of its air pressure and not appear to be flat!

Alignment: A bad jolt from hitting a curb or pothole can throw your front end out of alignment and damage your tires. Have a tire dealer check the alignment periodically to ensure that your car is aligned correctly.

Rotation: Rotating your tires on a regular basis will help you achieve a more uniform wear. A guideline is usually approximately every 9600 KM's.

Tread: Advanced and unusual wear can reduce the ability of tread to grip the road in adverse conditions. Visually check them for uneven wear, looking for high and low areas or unusually smooth areas. Check for signs of damage.

Pacific Honda's how to Check Tire Air Pressure:

  • Refer to you vehicles owners' manual for the proper level of inflation; it may also be posted on the door.
  • When you check the air pressure, make sure the tires are cool- meaning they are not hot from driving even a kilometer.
  • Remove the cap from the tire valve, firmly press a tire gauge onto the valve and note the reading.
  • Add air to achieve recommended air pressure

Feel free to call us at (604) 984-0331 for any questions you may have

Why Do I need to check my alignment?

  • If your car's suspension system if out of alignment, your tires will wear unevenly and you may experience handling problems. Potholes and rough roads can contribute to wear.
  • Front-wheel drive vehicles, and those with independent rear suspension, require alignment of all four wheels.
  • Have a Pacific Honda Service Department advisor check your alignment periodically as specified by your vehicles owners' manual or if handling problems develop, such as "pulling" or vibration.
  • Also have your tire balance checked periodically. An unbalanced tire and wheel assembly may result in irregular wear.

Pacific Honda's HOW TO: check tire tread

When the tread is worn down to 2/32 of an inch, (2.5mm), tires MUST be replaced.

A penny is a reliable tool to check tire tread.

  • 1. Take a penny and put the Queen's head into one of the grooves of the tire tread. If part of her head is covered by the tread, you are driving with the legal amount.
  • 2. If you CAN'T see all of the Queen's head, it's time to replace the tire.

Remember, if properly cared for, tires can last a long time- usually from 64,000 to 128,000 KMS.
