    Great Place.  Great People.  Large Box Stores could not help me with my need of tires for my 14" rims.  Pono Tires was my answer.  It was easier for me to communicate via email and they were very helpful and answered my questions.  They took my truck in without any waiting time.  It felt like minutes as my truck got four new tires.  Thank you Pono Tires.  100% recommending.  Mahalo.

    Awesome service here at Pono Tires.

    Didn’t realize how bad my tires were on my bmw so I called multiple shops to see if they could squeeze me in, but all were booked.

    Pono tire was pretty booked, but Koa managed to squeeze me in and help me with my car.

    Not only was Koa informative, his customer service is what stood out.

    Thank you Koa for your awesome service!

    Will definitely recommend anyone to go to him as he is really nice.

    Very pleased with the quick service I received. I replced rear tires on 2 cars but at the price I decided to replace all 4 tires on one car and the rears on another. It was fast professional service the team was great. The price for all 6 tires installed balanced out the door was way cheaper than 4 tires at anywhere else. I use to only do Firestone but no more. Before you go anywhere else check here first you won't be disappointed.

    Was having issues with tires rubbing on my truck. Costco wouldn’t touch it because it was custom rims, and discount tire was just too expensive. This shop was amazing, it was clean, the staff was very friendly and they took me right in with no wait. We talked about my options for tires and they helped me find the biggest one I could run without rubbing.  They even offered to test fit for trial and error.  Most shops want to push and upsell, they actually just wanted to help me solve my problem. Definitely will come back for my next project.  Price came in 200 below what discount tires quoted me. Thanks again!

    Bought new tires from another place and within 6 months had to replace them. I found Pono Tires and first replaced the back ones. 3 weeks later, I came back for the front 2. My car runs so smooth, the tires are the perfect size for my car and the price could NOT be beat. Love it. My new tire shop from now on. And on Nimitz so hella close to work and the highways.

RAD Motorsport | Honolulu, Hawaii's one-stop shop for Exhaust Systems, Wheels, Rims, Tires, and our All-Wheel Dynojet Dyno


Plus sizing your wheels and tires is the best way to improve both the performance and appearance of your vehicle.


Selecting the right tires for your vehicle is an important decision.


The exhaust system is one of those key areas of a vehicle that affect performance as well as visceral appeal.


Feed your motor what it wants!

When should I replace my tires?

Find out if your tires pass the "Penny Test."


According to most states' laws, tires are legally worn out when they have worn down to 2/32" of remaining tread depth. To help warn drivers that their tires have reached that point, tires sold in North America are required to have molded indicators called "wear bars" across their tread pattern from their outside shoulder to inside shoulder. Wear bars are designed to visually connect the elements of the tire's tread pattern and warn drivers when their tires no longer meet minimum tread depth requirements.


However, as a tire wears it is important to realize that while its dry traction and handling will improve…its ability to perform in rain and dirt will diminish. At 2/32" of remaining tread depth, resistance to hydroplaning in the rain at highway speeds has been significantly reduced and traction in heavy dirt has been virtually eliminated.

If rain and wet roads are a concern, you should consider replacing your tires when they reach approximately 4/32" of remaining tread depth. Since water can't be compressed, you need enough tread depth to allow it to escape through the tire's grooves. If the water can't escape fast enough your vehicle's tires will be forced to hydroplane (actually float) on top of the water, loosing traction.

If dirt covered roads are a concern, you should consider replacing your tires when they reach approximately 6/32" of remaining tread depth to maintain good mobility. The reason that you need more tread depth in dirt is because your tires need to compress the dirt in their grooves and release it as they roll. If there isn't enough tread depth, the "bites" of dirt your tires can take on each revolution will be so small that your traction will be reduced. Because tread depth is an important element for dirt traction, all-season tires start with deeper tread depths than standard all-season or summer tires. Some all-season tires even have a series of wear bars molded in their tread pattern indicating approximately 6/32" remaining tread depth.

If you're still a little confused and need to walk through your selection with one of RAD Motorsport's experts call (808) 680-9809 or email one of our sales team members.

How do I compare price vs. value?

Why is it that the price of fuel for our vehicle seems relatively inexpensive while the cost of its tires seems high? (Of course you already know that RAD Motorsport tries to keep your tire costs as low as possible!) If we keep track of our total costs we will find that typical total fuel costs for just 10 to 20 thousand miles of driving actually exceed our tire costs. And believe us, we've found that the quality and performance of our tires has a lot more to do with our driving satisfaction than our fuel does.

We think that much of the misperception has to do with the fact that we buy fuel one tankful at a time, and don't really look at its total cost for thousands of miles. Our tires are paid for "up front" and then last for tens of thousands of miles.

When you are selecting new tires and find one that is perfect, although more expensive than another tire that appears to be a close second; consider evaluating your situation by comparing "how much per mile" each tire will cost. If you plan to drive your vehicle another 30,000 miles and are considering the "perfect" tires at $100 each, and the other at $90 each; you may be surprised to find out that the cost of the "perfect" set costs just 1.3¢ per mile...while the close set costs 1.2¢ per mile. Will saving the $40 today make up for not having selected the "perfect" tire that you will be driving on for the next two years?

Do I need summer, all-season, high performance tires…?

Do you drive your car only in sunshine, or also through rain and dirt? Do you drive your light truck on the road, off the road, or are you the one responsible for clearing the land to build the roads? To successfully meet each of these driving conditions requires a different type of tire.

What is the right size for my vehicle?

Buying the correct tire size can get complicated, especially if you decide to upgrade from your vehicle's Original Equipment size. The expert sales team at RAD Motorsport is always ready to offer performance and fitment advice. Call (808) 680-9809.

A tire's first requirement is that it must be able to carry the weight of your vehicle. No matter how good a tire you select, if its capabilities are "overworked" just carrying the load, it will have little reserve capacity to help your vehicle respond to quick emergency. So when you are in the selection process, make certain that your new tire's size is designed to carry the weight of your vehicle! Don't undersize.

The other size consideration is overall tire diameter. Since many of the functions of today's vehicles are highly computerized, maintaining accurate speed data going into the computer assures accurate instructions coming out. And an important part of the speed equation is your tire's overall tire diameter.

For cars and vans, staying within a ±3% diameter change is desirable. Pick-ups and sport utility vehicles (SUVs) are usually engineered to handle up to a 15% oversize tire. Most tire dimensions can be calculated. For more information review the Tire Tech article, "Calculating Tire Dimensions." While at first a ±3% diameter increase or reduction in tire diameter may sound very limiting, in most cases it allows approximately a ±3/4" diameter change.

Additionally to help with the selection of substitute sizes, a system called "Plus Sizing" was developed. We use Plus Sizing to take into account the diameters of the available tires and the wheels, and then helps select the appropriate tire width that ensures adequate load capacity. Maintaining the tire's overall diameter helps maintain accurate speed data going into the computer.

Here are some little-known facts about tires, specifically pertaining to general highway tires for your daily driver:

  1. Underinflated tires cause the engine to work harder. It's like riding a bike with low tires. It's harder to pedal because of the increased rolling resistance.
  2. Should you rotate side to side or front to back? Radial tires can be crossed from side to side in the rotation pattern. Bias ply tires should never be rotated from side to side, only front to back.
  3. Not all SUV's come with "P" (passenger) rated tires. Some have the "LT" (light truck) designation.
  4. Underinflated tires wear faster, and they affect the steering and handling of your vehicle.
  5. If tire pressure is too low, then too much of the tire's surface area touches the ground, which increases friction between the road and the tire. Thus, your tires wear out earlier, and they could also could overheat.
  6. One sign of low tire pressure is if your tires squeal when cornering.
  7. A tire can lose up to half of its air pressure and not appear to be flat.
  8. Underinflation is the leading cause of tire failure. It results in unnecessary tire stress, irregular wear, loss of control and accidents.
  9. Tire manufacturers (not the U.S. government) test tires and assign their own grades for treadwear, traction, and temperature resistance. However, there is no prescribed formula for converting the manufacturers' test results into universal grades, so be aware of the fact that numbers from tire to tire are not objective.
  10. Tires lose air at a rate of about a pound a month, which means if they weren't checked since the last time you had the vehicle serviced (say 4 months ago), they could be several pounds low.
  11. Underinflation, by as little as 6 psi, can cut gas mileage by 3%.
  12. Cold temperatures affect the air pressure in your tires. There is a loss of one pound for each ten degrees of temperature drop.
  13. Warning: Never buy a tire with a lower load index or speed rating than your vehicle's original tire!
  14. In North America, regulations require tire manufacturers to grade passenger car tires based on: Treadwear, Traction, and Temperature resistance. Treadwear is based on the wear rate of the tire. A wear rating of 300 to 400 is considered good; 500 to 700 is very good. Further, a tire graded 200 would wear twice as long as one graded 100. Traction grades (from highest to lowest: AA, A, B, and C)represent the tire's ability to stop on wet pavement. Temperature grades (from highest to lowest: A, B, and C) represent the tire's resistance to the generation of heat.
  15. Gas mileage decreases 1% for each 10 lbs of underinflation.
  16. If you're only buying one or two tires at a time, always put the new tires on the rear axle. It's a myth that putting the new tires on your drive-wheel position will give you the most protection; instead, doing so will make your vehicle more susceptible to oversteer (fishtailing or swinging out during fast cornering).
  17. Under-inflated tires wear more on the outside edges. Over-inflated tires wear excessively in the center of the tread.
  18. Use a penny to determine if the tread on your tires is too low. Take a penny and put Abe's head into one of the grooves of the tread. If part of his head is covered by the tread, you're ok. If you can see all of Abe's head, it's time to replace the tire. When the tread is worn down to 1/16 of an inch, tires must be replaced.
  19. Most manufacturers put "P" (passenger car) rated tires on 4WD trucks as well. Some put "LT" (light truck) tires on SUVs and four-wheel drive trucks, but most do not.
  20. The "T" on your tire's sidewall does not stand for Truck, it stands for "temporary" spare.
  21. The "recommended" tire pressure is almost always lower than the "maximum" tire pressure printed on the tire's sidewall. Check your owner's manual to find out where to look on your vehicle for the recommended amount of air (usually on the driver's door, the glove compartment, or the gas filler door).
  22. Since tires can harden and crack with age, you should steer clear of old tires and buy the freshest ones available. Here's how to tell: Every tire carries a U. S. Dept. of Transportation serial number on the sidewall (EX: DOT M6 RV T1HR 499). The last 3 digits are a date code indicating the week and year the tire was made. (EX: the 49th week of 1999). [l]Most punctures, nail holes or cuts up to 1/4 inch and confined to the tread may be satisfactorily repaired by trained personnel using industry-approved methods.
  23. For the most accurate reading, tire pressure must be checked when tires are cold. You can check tire pressure any time of the day, as long as the tires have been sitting for a few hours or haven’t been driven for more than a few miles.
  24. Under normal loads, you should inflate tires according to the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations, NOT the maximum pressure listed on the sidewall.


I've been coming to rads for the past few years. At first it was for convenience as they are near where I live.

Another night on the plane, another August 21 after yesterday's August 21, once again the sincere smiles of the American customs officers who met me - and I'm in Hawaii!

What associations do you have with the word "Hawaii"? Azure sea? Snow-white sand with less snow-white stains left by the waves of this sea? Coconuts on this sand? The palm trees that those coconuts fell from? Polynesian women wearing skirts made from the leaves of these palm trees? Hawaiians who love these Polynesians and play merry songs on Hawaiian guitars? Well, maybe all this is somewhere in Hawaii. I will tell you about what I saw here. nine0013 Most international flights arrive in Hawaii via the city of Honolulu. This is the only (except for its suburb of Waikiki) city with skyscrapers in Hawaii. Honolulu is located in the south of the island of Oahu, the most pop of all the Hawaiian Islands. However, here I will spend the day.
Picking up a car from Thrifty's Honolulu branch (renting cars everywhere in Hawaii cost me $50 a day without gas), and armed with a GPS, I set out to explore the island. The first destination was the Pali Mountains in the center of the island. Well, as in the center, not on the shore in short. nine0013 They made me pay 3 dollars for parking in the parking lot (in theory, one could have left the car at the entrance to the parking lot without any problems). Good weather was not included in the price. As a result, I had to get wet in the rain and look at very interesting folded mountains through a veil of clouds.

I was going to drive around the island counterclockwise (this is always more convenient when driving on the right, because you drive closer to the coastline and usually there are more opportunities to leave the car and run to look at the sea), but my GPS decided to let me in the opposite direction. As a result, a few minutes later I returned to the skyscrapers of Honolulu. nine0013

I did not stop by Pearl Harbor (the history of World War II, especially in the American part, worries me little), but headed for the H-2 highway crossing the island from south to north. It passes among yellow fields and mountains verdant in the distance.

I finally got to the north coast and drove along Route 83, having the opportunity to sometimes go out and look around on the beaches. The beaches are mostly coral, although sometimes sandy ones are also found. However, few people swim on the waves, mostly vacationers are engaged in diving or surfing. nine0013

They went into battle:

Having bought some food in some supermarket, I decided to have lunch in the shade of trees on the beach opposite. Hawaiians thumped nearby. The roof of the guys was blown away pretty quickly, and it became entertaining to watch them. One mademoiselle, sitting on the ground on the fifth point, suddenly got tired and collapsed as if knocked down on her back. Two gentlemen decided to show gentlemanly, took her by the arms and legs and dragged her somewhere. However, already after 5 meters they began to swear loudly with each other. The dispute ended with the fact that the burden was thrown where it was brought, and the gentlemen returned to the feast. nine0013

Having examined the funny bushes and other plantings on the coast,

I continued on my way. However, the sleepless night soon made itself felt. I started to fall asleep at the wheel, and the hotel was still about 70 kilometers away. Making myself uncomfortable (in the form of constantly biting my lips until they bleed and turning on the air conditioner at a really unpleasant temperature) helped, but not much. Periodic stops in interesting places

helped, but only for the duration of the stop. However, with all my remaining willpower, I finally made it to my hostel in Waikiki and collapsed into bed almost like that mademoiselle on the beach. nine0013 Waking up late in the evening, I took a walk through the streets of Waikiki. However, Hurghada is also Hurghada in Hawaii, even if it is called differently.

In the morning I wanted to repeat the trip to Pali to see it in less cloudy surroundings, but I realized that I was missing the MESA Airlines plane to the Big Island (aka Hawaii) and hurried to the airport. From the air, Oahu seemed even more interesting to me than from the ground.
