Having all 4 tires at 38 psi cold is fine since Honda recommends 38 for front and 35 for rear.chachi said:Is 38 pounds of pressure all around good for an insight?
If you have 5 year old tires in the rear and new tires in the front there is high probability that the rear tires will slide before the fronts causing a spin out on a highway ramp.... :shock:Jim said:It's easier to wear out the fronts and buy and change two tires at a time rather than four.
This is the part I don't understand. I was always told (by the tire guys back home in Germany) that tire wear increases every time you move a tire from one wheel to another due to the changing wear patterns. Essentially, there is a "break-in period" with every change. So unless it wears very unevenly, a tire lives longer if it's just left where it is.Insightful Trekker said:not really a safety factor but a cost savings one.
oh, my. your post gave me pause, because I've had my insight for roughly 25K (and only 10 months, yikes) and have only rotated them 1x. yikes! They seem to be doing ok, though I will make sure to take a gander at them during my next oil change.chachi said:I've owned my insight now for 2 years (25567 miles) (CVT) still have the orginal tires. I think I've only rotated them 3 times....are my tires in big trouble?
What is your schedule for tire maintenance?
