I have an Accord 2010 with an original backup tyre. For a long period I didn't pump any into it.


Today I wanna push some air into it, but it can't actually work. Other on road tyres are injectable, only the Backup Tyre meet problem.

The Shell's air pump display showing "0.0", means zero pressure. I've tested another tyres and it funtioned.

Anyone experienced before? Any solution?

That tire is no more safe to use. Shelves life for tire probably 6 years the most. Can explode any time if used. Just replace it.

yup, push the inflate tyre button. It will hyper inflate at very fast intervals. The hissing sound will be quite intimidating and will continue to make the sound several times even after u unplug it from the tyre, but it's normal.

It's always good to have your own inflator.

As others have suggested push and poke that 1 mm diameter pin on the tyre valve (of spare tyre) to free it up .

I beg to differ.

Tyre OEMs say it is good for 10 years post manufacturing date.

If zero pressure, normal inflation won't work. Need to press the flat tyre button as someone said earlier.

If simple nail puncture, don't change tyre.
Just inflate it with own pump and drive to nearby tyre shop

10 year old original tyre from a 2010 car?

Point taken.

But the fact remains, Continental (and other tyre OEMS) says 10 year tyre life ....

in black and white.

Until and unless the specific owner manual of this 2010 Honda Accord car of TS says otherwise.

It is not exposed to UV and other factors directly. Yes, most will tell 10 years. In Internet also said tires 10 years and older should be replaced. If you feel that it is a waste because not even used, then you should rotate using 5 tires rotation in future.

Even if the tires is say 9 years, then it is still not not expensive compare to your safety, right? The shop told me the shelf life is 6 years. As you can see, the shop that offer big discount usually want to clear old stocks, those nearing 5 to 6 years of age. Why not replace one on sales

Some cars comes with the wheelbarrow space saver tyre which is not supposed to be for normal use.. that one will work to limp you to the nearest tyre shop or safe spot laugh.gif
My 04 camry come with the full size spare but its way expired already - I just buy the cheapest tyre to be sacrificed as spare, since the original one already way too old and the in-operation ones will take too long to wear off for me to use as spare purpose.

Hey everyone, thanks for yall replying!!!
It seems most of yall mentioned bout the "Flat Tyre Button"

Is the flat tyre button refer to the Pump Machine's button? which if we pressed, the air will keep blowing out?

I do actually consider to change a new cheap spare tyre...but currently not in a coffee break T.T

Yes, the cheapest tire just to get you home or to nearest workshop is brilliant idea. Rotating 5 tires is annoying and boring even if it is just looking at it at workshop laugh.gif
