I wondering if anybody could tell me the recommended tire pressure for '04-'05 Accord V6 (gen 7) 16" 205/50/16?

I have gen 7 16" wheels on my gen 6 Accord V6, so I don't have the manual and sticker.

and if you own a gen 7 Accord V6 with 16" wheels, whats the psi that you are running?

(i am currenty running 35 psi front and 33 rear)

Tire pressures are generally based on the type of car, not the type of tire or rim. Only if the rim and tire is grossly different in terms of diameter, width, load rating, etc, would you alter the OEM pressure recommendation. I don't believe going to a larger OEM rim and tire would necessarily constitute "grossly different".

I used to have: 15" 205/65/15

Now I have: 16" 205/60/16

Since both wheels are for Accord V6, I am assuming the vehicle weight and dimention won't vary too much

with simular driving style, condition and vehicle load, should I run the 16" with simular psi to the 15"?

If it were my car, I would. However, monitor tire wear patterns to ensure they are performing as desired.

32 PSI front, 30 PSI rear according to the sticker on my '04's 205/50/16s ... but it's a 4cyl. Don't know how different the answer will be for the V6.
