The 2010 Honda Accord was available in sedan, coupe and crossover body styles with a choice of 4-cylinder or V6 engines. Honda offered multiple trim levels for each body style ranging from the base LX to the more premium EX and EX-L models. This resulted in several different tire sizes used across the Accord lineup.

The specific 2010 Honda Accord tire size for your model depends on the engine, body style and trim level:

4-Cylinder Sedan

The base LX 4-cylinder sedan came equipped with 16-inch wheels and P215/60HR16 tires.

The mid-grade EX 4-cylinder sedan had 17-inch wheels and P225/50VR17 tires.

4-Cylinder Coupe

The EX 4-cylinder coupe also used 17-inch wheels and P225/50VR17 tires.

The LX 4-cylinder coupe had 16-inch wheels but shared the same P215/60HR16 tire size as the base LX sedan.

V6 Models

All V6 powered Accords came with 18-inch wheels.

The V6 EX sedan, V6 EX 2WD SUV and V6 EX coupe all used P235/45VR18 tires.

The top EX-L trims with V6 engine and available all-wheel drive utilized P225/60HR18 tires. This included the V6 EX-L 2WD SUV and V6 EX-L 4WD SUV models.

Tire Size Markings Explained

To understand 2010 Honda Accord tire sizes, it helps to break down what the tire size markings mean:


  1. P = Passenger vehicle tire
  2. 215 = Tire width in mm
  3. 60 = Aspect ratio (tire sidewall height as percentage of width)
  4. H = Speed rating
  5. R = Radial tire
  6. 16 = Rim diameter in inches


  1. P = Passenger vehicle tire
  2. 225 = Tire width in mm
  3. 50 = Aspect ratio
  4. V = Speed rating
  5. R = Radial tire
  6. 17 = Rim diameter in inches


  1. P = Passenger vehicle tire
  2. 235 = Tire width in mm
  3. 45 = Aspect ratio
  4. V = Speed rating
  5. R = Radial tire
  6. 18 = Rim diameter in inches


  1. P = Passenger vehicle tire
  2. 225 = Tire width in mm
  3. 60 = Aspect ratio
  4. H = Speed rating
  5. R = Radial tire
  6. 18 = Rim diameter in inches

The 2010 Honda Accord came equipped with four common tire sizes from the factory ranging from 16 to 18-inch diameters and widths between 215mm to 235mm.

Wheel Sizes

Along with the 2010 Honda Accord tire sizes, there were 3 different wheel sizes used:

  1. 16-inch wheel (LX 4-cyl models)
  2. 17-inch wheel (EX 4-cyl models)
  3. 18-inch wheel (All V6 models)

The larger 18-inch wheels were standard on all V6 trims to properly fit the larger brakes equipped on the more powerful engine option.

Smaller 16 and 17-inch wheel sizes were used on 4-cylinder cars to provide a smoother ride quality and improve fuel economy ratings.

Replacement Tire Options

When it comes time to replace your 2010 Honda Accord tires, stick with one of the OEM sizes to ensure proper fit, speedometer accuracy and intended tire performance.

Many popular tire brands offer replacement tires in the Accord’s common sizes including Michelin, Goodyear, Bridgestone, Continental and more.

Be sure to follow the recommended tire inflation pressures printed on the driver’s door jamb or owner’s manual for optimal tire life and safety.

Some plus sizing with slightly shorter sidewalls is possible while maintaining overall diameter, but consult with a tire professional to verify fitment and speedometer calibration if going to a different size.

Are All 4 Tires On A Car The Same Size?

Yes, all 4 tires on a car are normally the same size. Having all 4 tires be the same diameter and width ensures even handling, braking and load carrying across all wheels. The only exception would be a temporary spare donut tire, which is smaller than the normal tires and only meant for short-term emergency use until the standard tire can be repaired or replaced. Otherwise, mismatched tire sizes can lead to potential safety issues and uneven tire wear.

Can I Change My Tire Size?

You can change your tire size, but the new tires must maintain the same overall diameter to avoid affecting your speedometer accuracy and gearing. Going to a dramatically different size tire can also impact ground clearance and rubbing against suspension components. It’s recommended to stay close to your vehicle’s original tire size specifications for optimal handling, ride and safety. Consult with a tire shop about plus sizing while keeping the same diameter if you want a different look.

Is A Bigger Tire Size Better?

Not necessarily. While larger diameter wheels and lower profile tires can look more stylish, they may sacrifice some ride comfort, fuel economy and handling performance. Larger, wider tires can also be more expensive to purchase and replace. Consider how changing the tire size affects the overall driving dynamics and suitability for your particular car before going to a dramatically bigger size. In most cases, the OEM tire sizes provide the ideal balance of features.

What Does The 215 60 R16 Tyre Size Mean?

This tire size means:

  1. 215 = Tire width in millimeters
  2. 60 = Aspect ratio (tire sidewall height as percentage of width)
  3. R = Radial tire construction
  4. 16 = Wheel diameter in inches

So a 215/60R16 tire would have a width of 215mm, sidewall height of 129mm (60% of 215mm), and mount on a 16-inch wheel. This is a common OEM tire size on many compact and midsize passenger vehicles.


The 2010 Honda Accord came equipped from the factory with several different tire sizes ranging from P215/60R16 to P235/45R18 based on engine, body style, drivetrain and trim level configurations.

Knowing your exact OEM tire size is important when purchasing replacement tires to match the original specifications for proper fit, handling, ride comfort and speedometer accuracy. Consult the door jamb sticker or owner’s manual if you are unsure of the correct tire size for your 2010 Honda Accord.
