Author Topic:   Tires for '95 Acura Integra LS

Hi Everyone,

I just bought a used '95 Acura Integra LS Sedan w/ 50K miles.

As far as I can tell- the car still has its original tires-- Michelin XGT H4 P195/65R14s. They have some tread left (maybe 9-12 months).

When I checked the current tire pressure and the the maintenance records, the tires have always been inflated to 32-35psi. However, the owner's manual suggests that tire pressure for the OEM tires should be 29psi. Is there any danger in keeping the OEM tires at a higher pressure than recommended?

Also, does anyone have any suggestions as to good performance and good value tires I should replace them with when they're worn out?? I need all-season radials and am an average milage and moderate driver.

Thanks for your feedback.

tire pressure recommendations are set well by the car companies for a particular vehicle, so I would go with the 29psi. The Michelins you have on there now are nice tires. More affordable but also good tires for your Acura would be Firestone SH 30, Nitto NT 460, BF Goodrich Comp Ta H4 or V4 will work, Toyo Proxes, or Goodyear HP. I think you would like any of these. Most have a decent treadwear rating of at least 40,000 miles, stick well in dry and wet, and are more affordable than the Michelins. I usually shop at tirerack.com or tires.com. Their prices are hard to beat and they know their stuff. The website for tirerack.com has many customer write-in comments, survey results and their own track test results of various tires. They will drop ship anywhere you want the tires to go for about $8 a tire(still ends up a bunch cheaper than local tire shops). Good luck and that Acura is a great car, hold on to it as long as you can.

Gotta love that Acura Integra!
The above suggestions are all good. Check that tire size though. I think the OEM tire came is a 195/60/14!
