    My Avons are not rotational either, makes I easier to swap them corner to corner though.

    Cheers @FR-V would the psi be the same for diesel and petrol as there's a difference in weight of the vehicle ?

    Well I just drove back at 35psi all round and the cars rock hard again. After seeing that pdf from honda saying 30 psi I'm thinking of lowering it back down. I'll give it a few more days first.

    Has anyone got a recommendation on a tyre pump?

    I think we need someone with a petrol auto SE with 17" wheels to look at their sticker :Niceone:

    I'd probably stick to 35psi. Just what I think would be correct according to the tyre size and weight. Just a guess

    I'm getting mixed reports on the Internet. This honda pdf says 30psi. I think they are all recommendations so either is fine. Im gonna buy an electric pump so I can raise and lower the psi accordingly. 30psi for work and 35 when on longer journys.

    Has anyone got a recommendation on tyre compressors?

    I'll do some more research and order one in a sec. I need to find a small cargo net for the clips in my boot so I can store it too.

    I did some research. 0-30 psi is on a 13/14 inch wheel, basically will be quick if your pumping a bike tyre

    The door pillar sticker on my petrol auto SE Navi Plus (whatever that is) shows 33 all round except when towing where it shows 36 on the rears.

    A bit out of subject. Hope Legendary does not shoot me :Smile:
    If you accept that this site is correct then check for year 2013:
    Honda CR-V 2013 2.0i
    235/60R18 210.0kph (130.48mph) 100H 7Jx18 ET50

    Would you now agree that 235mm 60 R18 using same 7J rims is acceptable?? :Smile: :Smile:

    Also the 19" rims come with the correct tyre dimension: 245/50R19 (I would use 235/55R19 because 245 is too large))
    If you don't agree then bar quotes are wrong. :Smile: :Smile:

    If they are wrong, it's strange the bar numbers for my car match what Honda have affixed to it (if you ignore the fact that 2.3 bar is actually 33.3 psi) but if I remember correctly you stated in an earlier thread that Honda fitted the "wrong" sized tyres to my previous Black Edition CR-V, which had 19" wheels as standard.

    So it would appear that Honda seem to have no idea what they are doing when they design their cars.

    It is a Honda USA vs UK. Not saying they are wrong. It is a customization based on market research (for each region). I am not debating whether Honda UK/Europe got this wrong. I am just saying that they are both correct unless you see the mathematical aspect. The same would hold true if you use a higher ground clearance, tyres, which Honda USA accepts e.g. 235/60R18. Maths are wrong but it is an acceptable option.

    Regarding the 245 50 R19 vs 245 45 R19 the second gives lower ground clearance, Honda Europe/UK tried to give a sport feeling. However calculations of the normal tyre size diameter (17" or 18") with the USA 19" tyre size diameter are the same. So mathematical Honda UK is wrong (if maths is the governing criteria). You can make your own assumptions or decisions.

    Thank you for the link @FirstHonda :Drinks:

    I had seen these before but alas, they have standard valves. Additionally, moving to smaller alloys will require HDS adjustments each time I swap them over.

    So there is an HDS adjustment option for tyre/rim size?? I feel happy already.
