I believe your year CR-V uses indirect measurement, rather than a sensor in the tire.
So it does it based on whether all four tires are rotating at the same speed.
So set all of your tires to 35 psi, and then follow the instructions in your Owners Manual for "TPMS Calibration". In my 2014 CR-V Owners Manual the instructions are on pages 252 and 253.
The 30/33 is for smooth driving - It wastes fuel, and the Touring has tires that tire wall says max at 44 lbs - at 30 lbs you are less than 3/4 of max pressure. 38lbs on 44 lbs tire is just about right.
At 38 lbs the tires wear evenly - no cupping or outer wear issues. I get pretty good MPG with the CR-V.
Yep... I do the same thing. CRV just handles a bit better at 10% more pressure in my experience.
My OEM tires are Hankooks.... and when I took delivery and got home.. they were still set at 45 lbs.. which is I think the pressure they use when shipping them (less tire flex, less CRVs coming loose in transit). It was the one thing the dealer missed in their dealer prep checklist. They did drive and handle well at that pressure, but were probably a lot noisier too. I reset them for 36/33 F/R and recalibrated TPMS.
