#331 of 342 Wheel size upgrade
Oct 10, 2012 (9:22 pm)
Just need some advice to all. I owned the 2012 CRV LX, and would like to upgrade to 17 inch wheel offered on Honda accessories. Can I upgrade to the 17 inch without affecting the odometer accurate reading?
Thanks in advance.
#332 of 342 TPMS light is on
Apr 24, 2013 (2:16 am)
I bought a new 2013 CRV in the fall. When my husband put snow tires on himself a month later, the alert sign came on for low tire pressure.These were snowtires we bought from the dealer during the car purchase, and they were through Tirerack.
I took it into the dealer we bought it from, wasted an hour and a half and they were unable to fix the problem. Seemed clueless. I took it to another dealer, and they fixed the problem but I had to pay for it. NOw, my husband has put the regular tires back on ( that came with the car) and a week later, the TPMS light is on..Tire pressure is okay. I called the GOOD dealer to make an appointment and was told this appointment would not be covered under warranty because it came from my husband changing the tires.
DOES THIS MAKE SENSE? Do I have to pay $100 twice a year to get the sensor light fixed? ( Although maybe it was fifty something dollars.. I think they ended up lowering the initial quote )

There is a procedure to program the computer in your vehicle to sense the tire pressure sensor in the wheel. This needs to be done every time your change tires.
You can do this yourself (if you have the right tools) or you can have the dealer do this. If you take it to the dealer, it is NOT covered by warranty because the vehicle was delivered to you fully functional and the change to make it non-functional was neither caused by the dealer nor by the vehicle manufacturer.

OKay..One other question. The TPMS light did not come on for a full week after the tires were changed. Does this make sense?
Now I am wondering where to look for instructions to program it. And do you know what tools would be needed? Maybe my husband can do it..

I have been studying youtube videos about TPMS reset. Is there just one tool that is needed, in addition to the laptop computer? I found the ATEQ Quickset TPMS reset tool and the Wheelrite Tech 400.. Neither was specific to the 2013 CRV, but maybe they would work. Then I found some other tools on amazon with different brand names.
Am I on the right track? Is there one that you recommend?
Thank you very much for pointing me in the right direction. ( My husband was going about this insisting that it must be covered by warranty).

Your owners manual should have instructions about how to reprogram the TPMS system.
#338 of 342 Continental Tires
Jul 08, 2013 (3:57 pm)
My 2012 EX-L has the Continental Cross Contact tires I think. The car has always been noisy out on the road and now at 11000 miles it seems to be getting worse. Am I the only one to have noise problems with the Conti's?
I'm looking at Michelin Defenders now. Has anyone done this swap?

If the noise is getting worse, you need to look at the alignment. A misaligned vehicle can start off noisy and it will always get worse.
Just an FYI, the published alignment specs for most vehicles is too wide by half. The setting need to be within the inner half of the tolerance.
Also, anything more than 1° camber is problematic - regardless of what the spec is. It looks like Honda specifies more than a degree in the rear.
And lastly, regular rotation of tires is essential to keep irregular wear from forming. Irregular wear can come out as either noise or vibration (or both) With a degree of rear camber, it is quite likely that the rear tires have developed irregular wear.
So try rotating the tires as a diagnostic procedure. If the noise changes, then you have alignment issues.
