Default New Tire Recommendations for a 2005 Honda CR-V SE


Hello there!

My name is Scott, and I am currently in the market for a new set of
tires for my 2005 Honda CR-V SE. I would like to know if the members of
this newsgroup have any particular experience(s) or specific
recommendations for tire replacements to consider and/or avoid.

The original tires equiping my CR-V are BFGoodrich Traction T/A Spec's
in the size 215/65R16 98T M+S.

Now, I'm a semi-aggressive driver, so I'd like to have very durable
tires that also transmit very low road noise and afford great comfort
and responsiveness on some of the worst - albeit paved - roads in the
country. Let's face it, it Pothole Hell here!

More importantly, though, I require tires that will offer superior
traction on wet, snowy and icy roadways. I live in suburban Buffalo,
New York, so we have inclement (read: crappy!) weather for the greater
part of the year. I'm sure that you've all heard of our Winter weather
reputation, which is both well-earned and infamous, but not too bad at
all once you're used to it!

These will be the first set of Truck/SUV tires I've ever bought, so I
want to get the best that I can. I liked the Dunlaps and Goodyears I've
had on four previous automobiles, but absolutely hated the Firestones on
my previous Honda Civic HX. They slipped even on bone-dry pavement!

If it matters at all, I intend to mount the new tires on the factory
wheels as opposed to getting new, aftermarket wheels too.

So, whatever input that you folks can offer would be greatly
appreciated! There are so many brands and series available, so it would
be quite helpful to narrow those down to a more manageable level.

Thank you all very much in advance for your time and consideration! I
will be looking forward to reading your comments on this forum.

--Scott W.

Go here: http://www.hondasuv.com/ and check out the CR-V forums. Lots of
discussions there about tires...

In BUF, he'll be better off with a set of winter tires on steelies and a
set of all-weather tires on the factory alloys for rest of year.

Go to a 225/60-16 size for the "aggressive" driving aspect, year-round
and winter.

Go minus one for winter and plus one for summer, ie: a 205/65/16 for
winters and the 225/60s for the summer. A wider tire in the winter is
counterproductive.

Hey, thankfully anonymous "jim beam," with the Holier-Than-Thou (and
equally anonymous) "@privacy.net" e-mail account, thank you ever so much
for your invaluable contribution to this forum!

What exactly is your major malfunction, little man?! Let me guess,
your mommy doesn't love you ... step-daddy molested you and now won't
let you out of your basement bedroom ... you have a microscopic penis
... or are you just another ignorant asshole who feels compelled to
denegrate others when you otherwise have absolutely nothing constructive
and intelligent to say? I'm going to go with "all of the above" and
probably a whole lot more! You really should seek some therapy to help
confront and resolve your myriad issues of personal inadequacy.

Anyway, thanks again for your input, "beanie boy," and enjoy yourself
at the next "Star Trek" convention when it comes to town ... and don't
forget to bring along your pointy Vulcan ear tips!

Live Long And Prosper ... 'nuff said.

--Scott

You probably won't, but given the option for dedicated winters, narrower is
usually better. Have a look at this:

WRC winter stage tires are typically 145/80 R16 (!) Wide profiles tend to
float on top of the snow rather than bite into it.

Understood. Of course, I don't rally much...

Most winter tires spend most of their time in motion on cold, clear
roads or packed snow, where the larger contact patch is useful.

Au contraire - a smaller contact patch with the same weight on it has a
higher per sq in pressure on it, ergo it bites into the snow pack much, much
better than a wider tire. Voice of experience from 37 winters in Alaska....
