This was the newest car I have ever owned. Even though I bought it used, it was new to me. I bought it in April. I slowly noticed the road noise getting louder every month til about July or August I noticed a slight shack while driving at higher speeds. By September I couldn't go over 60 without the whole car shaking. The tires were practically new when I got it so I assumed it just needed an alignment. A few hours after dropping it off, I got a call from the mechanic saying something (I don't remember what he called it) needed to be replaced and was causing the tires to cup. This model was bad about the rear end having this problem. So I took it to the dealership. They said the tires needed to be balanced cause the rotation wasn't done right. That seemed to help for a few weeks but I noticed the noise and slight shake was coming back. Then after coming to this website, I see a lot of people had the same problem. I didn't wanna get stuck with a car I was going to sink money in. So today I had to trade it in for a toyota camry. Now I'm upside down on my notes but I feel like toyota will last longer. fingers crossed

CR-V EX 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,000 miles

At approximately 12,000 miles we noticed a rumbling noise from the rear of the vehicle. As the noise grew louder I finally noticed wear (feathering and cupping) on the left rear tire (Bridgestone Dueler H/T 470, 225/65R17 102T). Before a 1,100 mile road trip in March (3/15/2012) the tire was balanced but the noise grew louder. Just had the tires balanced (5/02/2012) and rotated at 15,000 miles. Firestone pointed out that the right rear tire is cupping also. It's odd to see that the rear tires have less tread than the front tires. Independence Honda in Independence, Missouri said they can not help since the tires were not rotated when the oil was changed.

I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE TIRES ON MY 2010 CRV HONDA AS TO TIRE WEAR 16800 MILES AND ALMOST WORN OUT BRIDGESTONES MUST BE THE WORST THERE IS NO ALIGNMENT PROBLEM AS THEY ARE EVENLY WORN . WE HAVE HAD 10 HONDAS IN THE PAST MOST WITH MICH TIRES WITH NO PROBLEMS . I WILL NEVER TAKE DELIVERY OF ANY CAR WITH BRIDGESTONE TIRES AGAIN THE FIRST CLUE WAS THE LOW TREADWARE NUMBER ON THE TIRE . IT IS A SHAME WE CAN NOT TAKE A TRIP FOR THANKSGIVING WITHOUT A 800.00 EXPENSE I FEEL MY JUDGEMENT ON THIS MATTER IS CORRECT AS I AM A A.S.E CERT. MASTER AUTO TEC AND HAVE BEEN FOR MANY YEARS . MC FROM FL

Update from Nov 1, 2012: after talking to honda about the premature tire wear prob 16800 miles i was referred to bridgestone, a waste of time. i was told that they were made to honda specs. my last car with bridgestones and my last honda most likely . honda was a great car company at one time

Replaced factory tires at 22,000 miles and purchased the top of the line Yokahama Envigor.

Have 16,000 miles on new tires and they are worn out. I rotate tires at dealer every 3,000 miles, do not drive faster than the speed limit and take it slow in turns. This is the second CRV I have had this issue with and no one has provided any assistance. I will never buy another CRV and will probably go with a Toyota.

I bought this car in July of 2010, at that time the car had 314 miles on it. I bought a honda because of the reputation that Honda has, now I am having a problem with tires that are in bad condition. I have gotten some help with tire manufacturer how ever I do not feel I should have to pay to have new tires put on this vehicle at this time. When you buy a new car you expect the tires to last somewhat longer than this. I have talked to the service manager, Matt, at Hugh White Honda ,who was somewhat helpful. However his hands are tied also. I depend on my car to get me to and from work and to places of interest. I would expect that Honda would stand behind its product and/or make the tire manufacturer stand behind their product. I do understand that this particular tire is no longer being made. I wonder why? I need some relief.

Thanks for reading this A. West.

CR-V EX-L 2.4L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 26,211 miles

Replaced all four factory installed tires due to excessive wear(cupping) at 42,183 kms. This was the first time I had heard of this term. I put on a new set of Bridgestone Duellers(same as were on the car when I bought it). Had a wheel alignment done thinking that was the problem. At about 23000 kms on the new tires,I was getting a bumping noise, so I took it in to an independent tire store and they said the same thing was happening to the rear tires and it visually looked like the rear tire camber was out. I then took the car to the Honda dealer in Red Deer, Alberta, who said the camber can't be changed(even though it was out of spec) and that I probably needed new control arms, as they must be bent, to the tune of $ 410. I also bought 2 new Bridgestone Duellers and replaced the rear tires..I talked to the service manager and, of course, they had never heard of the problem. I went on the internet and found all sorts of complaints relating to the same problem. I was really annoyed, so I called Honda Canada. The rep on the phone said he would contact the dealer, get some information and call me back, which he did 2 days later. Even though the car was now off warranty, he said Honda WOULD PAY for new control arms and a wheel alignment. What a surprise that was. But the saga continued. I took the car into Honda Red Deer a week later, they put the new control arms on, but had to farm out the wheel alignment to Canadian Tire as their alignment machine wasn't working due to a power outage.Canadian Tire didn't supply a print out of the readings, so I went back to the dealer a few days later, they checked the alignment and provided me with a print out of the specs, where everything was within spec. They said to come back in a month and they would check the readings, which I did yesterday. As it turned out, they actually did a new wheel alignment and ran a print out of the specs. The opening specs didn't match the closing specs from the prior month and the toe was out of spec on the new print out. We called the mechanic in and he couldn't explain it, so they put the car back on the machine and ran the specs again. The new specs didn't even match the specs from the ones taken 20 minutes before. The customer service rep didn't have an explanation and said their machine must be screwed up, so I should go elsewhere and get a wheel alignment report and they would pay for it. I wonder how many Honda customers have faulty alignments? Thus for all the Honda CRV owners out there, it appears that Honda Does Know Of This Problem and will actually pay for new control arms. However, how the heck do you know whether the wheel alignment is proper? I am presently looking at purchasing a new car.

Front tires worn down to tread bar (is that correct term?) . Barely 24K miles and the tires have to be replaced. Really, really, really disappointed in quality (?) of tires ... what's next Honda? I've been a loyal Honda customer (this is the 5th Honda I've had). Looks like I'm not the only CRV owner with this problem.

Another tire wear problem, only had 27,000 on our 2010 CRV had to replace the tires due to uneven tire wear. Went into Honda to complain only to be told it wasn't their problem. Now we have to replace a part... another $120... Never will buy another honda again.

I took my new Honda CRV for an annoying bell noise and was told by the dealer that I need new tires. I only have 20,000 miles on this car. Can not believe this is happening. Dealer said it is not covered by warranty. This is unbelievable. Cheapest tires would last more than 20,000 miles. What kind of quality is this Honda providing. This is the last time I will own a Honda (being a Honda customer for 22 years).

Car only just over a year old with 19K miles and the tires were worn badly. Dealer pointed out they need replaced. I said fine it's still in warranty. Nope! Tires not covered, they will replace for half price. I said car too new. Tough stuff was their attitude, I tried to talk to sales mgr. and salesman who sold it to me and they said it’s too bad but that’s what they do now, make soft rubber tires so test drives are more comfortable. (Hondas had a rap about the rough ride.) I contacted Honda America and they didn't give a crap and said that’s the way it is. So I don't buy anymore Honda's! And that's a fact Jack!
