Smile Tire size for HFP wheels on Crosstour

I bought a set of 19" HFP wheels for my Crosstour, the stickers that come with them say use 245/40/19 but that is the reco for the Accord and the result will a wheel that is smaller in diameter than the stock 225/60/18. If I go to the Tirerack calculator it shows the alternate tire size for the Crosstour with 19" wheels as 245/50/19. I would like to use something wider than the 245, like a 255 265 or even 275. I am pretty sure if I keep the diameter the same I shouldn't have any problems I am just not sure of the width. At a minimum I would like to use a 255/50/19 as I have many more tire choices than the 245/50/19.

Does any one have any experience with the HFP rims on the Crosstour? Thanks

A couple of things: Not sure what year Crosstour you have or the factory wheel size that came with it so I plugged in a 2013 Crosstour with a 17 inch tire.

Here is a link to the alternate sizes we show that fit:

You also need to make sure the tire you pick is rated for the wheel width you purchased.

Give us a call if we can be of assistance.

If you look at the tire and wheel forum there is a post of someone who used 255 with stock rims, so I think that you safe going that wide.

I also found this web site that says you can go all the way to 295 which seems like a big difference.

Here is the link for your review.

Just as a closing follow-up I finally got the wheels on. I used R255/50-19's even though the sticker said to use 245's. The 245 factory reco was for the Accord, the 255/50's are the same diameter as the stock 225/65's. They fit fine and look great.

If you do this, make sure you use the stock TPMS sensors. Itried using the sensors that came with the wheels and after a week the dealer gave up and we put the stockers in, they worked fine. It's hard to believe there is that much incompatability between these sensors. But be warned.

Looks good!

What brand tires are you guys using for the 19'' HFP wheels? Im having a shutter with my new pirelli tires @ 55+ mph and if i go back to my stock 18'' wheels and tires no shutter. I hear that some people have vibration issues with pirelli tires?

Wondering if you could post a picture of it from the rear. I'd like to see how wide they look. Love the wheels! Looks much better than the stock wheels from Honda!
