  • 65,000 miles
The contact owns a 2009 Honda CR-V equipped with Firestone tires, tire line: FR710, and tire size P225/65/R17. The contact stated that while driving at 65 mph, the steering started to shake violently without warning. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The technician diagnosed that the rim might be causing the failure. The contact took the vehicle to an independent mechanic, who confirmed that the tires were out of round and needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The tires were not replaced. The vehicle failure mileage was 65,000 and the tire failure mileage was 50.

CR-V 4-cyl

  • 17,097 miles
On my last 2 visits to the Honda dealership, I have been talked with about replacing my tires. The tires are original to the car and are the Continental 4X4 contact M&S 225165R 17 102T. I have 18,00 miles on the car and it is kept in a garage when not driving. I was told that the tires were "soft" and needed to be replaced at a cost of $633.60 plus. I was surprised because I thought tires lasted a lot longer than 18,000. I thought tires lasted 50,000 to 65,00 miles is there something wrong with the tires that are on my car. I have not replaced the tires. Do these original tires have premature or uneven wear, in which case they should be replaced free.

CR-V 4-cyl

  • 92,000 miles
This involves my tires on my 09 Honda CRV. I am the original and only owner - two years ago, July 9,2011 I brought my car in for routine servicing and tire rotation and was advised my tires (original yokohama) were choppy and needed replacement. The dealer at the time only recommended replacement with the same tires which I refused as I felt they wore prematurely and replaced them at a tire dealer with coopers. Now, two years almost to the day, I brought my car in for tire rotation and balancing and was told the tires are choppy and need replacement again, this time 92,000. Is this a defect? I always service my car and need to determine the cause of this - this is too much of a coincidence. Thank you-

The contact owns a owns a 2009 Honda CR-V equipped with Continental Contitrac tires, size 225/65/R17. The contact stated that the front passenger tire blew out twice in less then 20,000 miles. The contact also stated that the authorized dealer was the only place that handled the vehicle and the dealer stated that the tires were not under recall. The contact was not sure if the tires blew out because of road conditions or an unidentified failure. The first failure occurred at 5,000 miles and the second failure occured at 15,000 miles. The current mileage was 20,000.

My Honda CRV came with Continental 225/65R17 102T tires, it has 28000 miles on it 2 years 2 mos later and the front tires are completely bald. The mechanic checked my alignment, the tires have been rotated, and they are evenly worn. I see there are many other complaints about this and I think you need to investigate- no one expects to have to replace tires so quickly and it is a dangerous situation.

CR-V 4-cyl

  • 22,300 miles
My Honda CRV 2009 with 15,300 miles began developing a roar in the right rear tire. I had the tires rotated and the roar moved to left front. I told the dealer it sounds like a tread separating, and his mechanic agreed. We were going on a long trip and (I was a mechanic for 40 years) I decided for safety reasons to replaced all four Bridgestone dullers with Goodyear.

2009 Honda CR-V under 20,000 miles, tires are completely worn and need replacement. Wife is primary driver and had no idea how bad they were. No incidents, just anger over what could have happened. Dealer recommended replacing with the same tire. Naturally, more frustration.

Purchased new Honda 2009 CRV in July 2009. On May 2010 at 15K miles had to replace 2 rear tires due to premature wear (at my cost). Wear was not due to my neglect. Dealer tech claimed bad tires. Again on August 2010 at 20K miles(only 5K miles on new tire) had to replace one of the brand new tires!!. service tech at dealer confirmed that tire was bad and had caused the shimmying and veering to the right of vehicle. Tire replaced by dealer these tire were Bridgestone duellers. This problem has significantly been noted by other CRV owners and confirmed by several dealers.

The tires of my 2009 Honda CRV were all replaced today after only 16,000 miles or about 14 months of using the car. The service advisor that help me told me that they had some customers come to the dealership that had less mileage (like 13K or 14K). I think there is wrong in the designed of the CRV. My particular CRV, the brake booster was replaced @6,868 miles or roughly 5 months on the road.

  • 500 miles
New 2009 Honda CR-V, with less than 500 miles I started getting bad vibrations and car veering to the right and then to the left. Honda of ocala tried to balance and align the vehicle multiple times which did not correct the vibration. Felt like tires had a bald spot. After 3 tries, they decided to examine the tires (Bridgestone / dueller ht's) and found that 2 of the tires had belts that separated. This could have caused serious injuries if I had not persisted. They replaced the tires and a rim with same tires only new ones. A week and a half later, car continues to have vibrations and they again think it is the tires. Car now has 2500 miles and is in the shop again today. Complaint has been filed with Honda who just says the tires are not their responsibility. There are hundreds if not thousands of similar complaints, some with crashes and serious injuries because of these tires. Some have reported that the sidewalls explode. I do not feel safe in my new vehicle and I think Honda needs to stop putting these tires on their vehicles and replace the ones out there with different one. This is a lawsuit waiting to happen.
