#105 of 173 Continual problems with TPMS & Tires
Sep 22, 2009 (12:24 pm)
I have a 2007 Pilot and my TPMS indicator is on at least once a month. The tire pressure is ~22 when the light comes on. It happens randomly to any of the tires, all the time. The dealer has been unhelpful; tells me that "wide temperature changes cause tire pressure changes." I'm in So Cal; that answer is ridiculous.
I've met other Honda owners at gas stations putting air in their tires with the same problem. Anyone else with the same issue? Anyone who's got a fix? This is a really annoying problem.
#106 of 173 2006 Honda Pilot Tire Issues
Nov 30, 2009 (3:42 pm)
I'm on my 3rd set of new tires in the past 30 days and can not eliminate the vibration experienced at speeds of 65-80MPH. The tires feel like they have a "waddle" or are slightly out of balance. I've tried two sets of Firestones(present set is Destination LE) and the General Grabber HTS. The present set was installed by TireRack and supposedly RoadForce Variation balanced. Vehicle only has 55,000 miles and I NEVER had an issue at all with the original GoodYear Integritys.
I see that others have had this issue too but haven't seen any firm resolutions.

You might want to consider getting the tires installed and balanced at your local Honda dealer.
Our Honda dealer matches the price of local tire dealers. We had a set of Michelin "Harmony" installed by the dealer, on my wifes CR-V, and they ran fine.
Nobody knows your Honda as well as your Honda dealer.
#108 of 173 Honda Pilot Spare Tire Retention Wire/Crank Broken

The spare tire retention system on my Honda Pilot is broken. I turn the hex nut and the wire neither raises nor lowers the tire. Any help on a fix or replacement would be appreciated.

I removed the spare tire and removed the crank assembly.
#111 of 173 Replacement tires

I have a 2006 with the original Bridgestone tires on it. They have 45,000 mi on them and I am looking to replace them soon. Which are the best replacement tires for this Pilot?

After 3 sets in 45 days, I ended up with the Michelin Cross Terrains. By far the best tire for my Pilot. I had vibration issues with the General Grabber HTS, Firestone Destination AT and Destination LE.

I went to a new owner clinic at our dealer in January after buying our 2010 Pilot. The dealer's service people said they suggest inflating the tired 4 lbs over what it says on the door, and that gives enough play to keep the TPMS from going off. Now, I'm at altitude in Denver, so you may need a different number where you are. But we have huge swings in temps, as much as 50 degrees in 24 hours, and so far (knock on wood) the TPMS hasn't gone off.

10 degree lower mean 1 lb less ... calculate the difference of low temp and the temp you are putting in air ... add 2 extra pound if temp is 50 degree time you add air and the avg low is 30 degree.
