The feeling of watching your own tyre over take you is rather surreal.

Does anyone else think that the tyres always look underinflated on the front when pumped to the correct pressures or is it just me. It must be a pretty heavy lump in there even if bits of it are aluminium.

Another thing to have in mind is that the gas station air pumps are often badly calibrated. Last time I used one, it was 2 psi lower than it showed.
So I bought this:

Then, I use the gas station air pump and fill the tyres with 1 or 2 psi more than it's recommended. Then I use the above tool to bring the air pressure down to what I want.

Just a note: the analogic air pressure readers are more accurate than the electronic ones.

I thought exactly the same thing.

Yep mine where down 2psi from a week ago due to the weather, agree visuals are useless for low profile tyres as they always look a little low.

Must check mine today

When I got my Accord my first tyre check revealed 50psi in each tyre! That was the maximum permitted on the sidewall so I did't think any damage was done. I adjusted them to correct values, but then found I couldn't keep pressure in them. Got them checked for punctures, leaks, etc without joy. Eventually a tyre place told me the reason for the leaks was because the tyres were perished!!! 4 new tyres helped but one still needed topping up. A quick pit stop to the tyre place followed by a clean of the inner rim and all is now well.
Original - just as Soichiro intended !

My 2.2 CTDI Exec is for just me, ie, rarely any passengers will be in it. Is 38psi for all 4 tyres about right? Fuel economy is of utmost importance, the ride itself is not important to me. I'm getting one of these Air Gauges and inflators through the post tomorrow which I ordered from Amazon, will be able to level it up/down accordingly,

When I got my 6th gen the first thing I did was put fuel in and check the pressures, NSF 16psi, OSF 12psi, NSR 22psi, OSR 44psi!!!! How did the previous owner not notice??? New tyres on now and there is 36psi all round. I don't know what they are supposed to be cuz the genius took the sticker off from the door jam!

What are people putting in for 18"
Think mine are at 32psi? Front and rear
This is probably why my rear tyres are knackered with the load I always carry in the boot

as the pressure rises due to heat from travel anyway i always aim to put in a little below the max limit the tyre siewall says, so if it says 40psi max then i put in around 35,,that said i havent checked mine in yonks. mind you just had new fronts fitted for mot.

4 Perished tyres? how old were they? more likely the wheels imo......... :unsure:  :unsure:

Thanks for that Brett, mine is an 8th gen diesel on the 18" Sigmas....for some unknown reason, Honda have only put the pressures for 17" rims on the door jam and even in the handbook. Are the pressures you quoted for the saloon or tourer?
