When would a driver have to purchase a replacement PAX System tire?

Honda recommends that owners who have the PAX system not change to conventional wheels. Chris Martin, a Honda spokesman, said the Touring model’s suspension was tuned for the PAX tires and switching to conventional wheels “would compromise the ride and handling.”

PAX System® is an innovative tire and wheel assembly consisting of four components: tire, support ring, wheel, and tire pressure monitoring system. It is a breakthrough runflat technology designed to, first, help keep you safe by offering you added protection from the dangers of a blowout and changing a tire on the road, and second, make driving more convenient by lessening the hassles and delays of a flat tire. The most fundamental difference between PAX System and traditional tire and wheel assemblies is that a PAX System tire is designed to not separate from the rim, even with the occurrence of a sudden flat at high speed under normal driving conditions. The inner support ring also offers exceptional maneuverability and control in the event of a blowout. And, should a flat occur, PAX System allows for the vehicle to be driven up to 125 miles at 55 mph.

    It actually started in 1997 as PAV, a technical abbreviation describing this new, vertically anchored tire. With a traditional tire, inflation pressure helps hold the tire to the rim. The innovative anchoring mechanism of PAX System is designed to not separate from the rim and actually improves its hold when vertical loads are applied to the tire. By 1998, PAV was renamed PAX System, which translates to the values of peace of mind, safety, and the future. When it comes to safety, PAX System is way ahead of traditional tire and wheel assemblies. The most fundamental difference between the two is that a PAX System tire is designed to not separate from the rim, even with the occurrence of a sudden flat at high speeds under normal driving conditions. And, should a flat occur, PAX System allows for the vehicle to be driven up to 125 miles at 55 mph, which means you're less likely to be stranded on the side of the road.
