    He is referring to maintenance/service. You can't buy a Type R from Acura

    anyone know what tires they are putting on the CTR for the North part of the states?
    I was told that all summer tires are coming on cars that are sold in the south.

    The Type R only comes with Summer tires from the factory.

    There are a small number of aftermarket Winter tires available.

    There are currently no all-season tires in the Type R's size that I know of.

    Dealers are suppose to keep unsold Type R indoors when the temperatures go below the 40s (°F).

    Installed 245/35R20 Bridgestone Potenza S-04 without issues. Better wet and cooler weather tire. Used a hunter tire changer without any wheel damage. Just have to watch what your doing and know your equipment.

    I live in Dallas, Texas area and no dealerships that I found carry the right machine so I called the Honda Tool & Equipment and asked them to tell me what dealerships have purchased the required machines to be able to change my CTR tires. She is supposed to call me back while she looks into it. I sure hope your right about being able to get it changed with a basic Hunter. So stupid I have to get my car to a dealership, get a loaner for who knows how many days, while they ship out my wheels to get a new tire put on them. Why would Honda sell a car and put the owners through this mess?

    Thanks for pointing out the Nitto Neogen 245/30ZR20 90W XL stock number 185180. That's the first all-season tire in the Type R's size I've seen and they're reasonably priced at about $800 per set. Certainly less capable than the factory tires, but seems to be a great choice for those who plan to use their Type Rs as daily drivers. Personally, I wouldn't use a 245/35ZR20 since it's an inch too tall.

    It's only 1/2" on the bottom. ;):thumbsup: They fit and it opens up options using the OE wheel.

    I wouldn't call it a "great choice." I am not referring to the tire itself, of which I know nothing; but to using anything other than tires in the same or 'better' class as the CSC6 on the stock 20" rims. As per the manufacturer's recommendation, the solution for non-summer cooler conditions - where one wants the flex of a taller sidewall - is a (second) set of rims of 18" diameter.

    "Manufacturer's" = Honda? I was not aware Honda recommended the installation of 18" wheels on the Type R.
