I have 20,901 miles on the Bridgestone tires that came with my vehicle when I bought it new in 2011. I have been told by the dealership when I take it in for servicing that my tires are need replacing. I was considering replacing them, but I have read that the premature tire wear will happen again after replacing. It is my understanding that this is a known problem with the CR-V.

Original owner noted missing lugnut on rear driver side wheel-stud was broken off during routine tire check. Unknown when this fell off. Took in for service. Mechanic noted that three additional wheel studs on different wheels snapped with minimal torque while rotating tires. Auto with 40,000 miles, tires are aftermarket, wheel rim oem. Wheels last changed (with new tire purchase) about 15 mo prior to this event.

CR-V 4-cyl

  • 38,393 miles
Said Honda CR-V purchased 05/22/14 at port charlotte Honda and was traded in about 2 hours prior to purchase.our 2007 Lincoln town car was supposedly sold prior to our arrival at dealership. We wanted to drive our Lincoln back home & leave the Honda for safety inspection and detailing per our agreement with sales person (mike homer) and finance manager (eric dane). They insisted we drive the Honda home and return for the services the next week as promised. The front tires were very bald being the original tires that came on it in 2011. We insisted that at the least the front and rear tires be rotated so the better (not exactly true) were on the front since it was a front wheel drive vehicle. Upon returning for service I told mike and eric I wasn't at all happy with the condition of the 2 tires on the front, it was a real safety issue. They assured me the tires met the specs and were safe the service department said the tire specs were between 2/32th and 4/32th. This isn't a true statement & I was told by the general sales manager they couldn't spend any additional on the vehicle. Being the first Honda we have ever purchased it was a major decision switching from Ford (which we have never had a problem with the vehicles or the service department). Eric said we would be real happy with the Honda CR-V which we are except for the safety issue with the tires. I've made numerous calls but the dealership still refuses to replace the tires without charging us for them. I refuse to pay hundreds for dollars for tires that should have never left the dealership. I took the Honda to the local Bridgestone dealership here in cape coral for evaluation and the measurement was 1/32 and he said he wouldn't drive 2 miles on those dangerous tires. The left driver's tire was flat every morning so we are now on a donut tire. We needed this issued resolved as soon as possible. Updated 05/7/2015

I called in a claim/complaint around June 8 2012 for premature wear for Continental 225/65R17-102T tires equipped on 2011 Honda CR-V to Continental &Honda. Continental advertises tires are warranted for 65,000 miles or 6 years. It became necessary to replace all 4 tires 0608/2012 at 31,463 miles or less than half the expected life of the tire because the tires cause my vehicle to fail inspection. The vehicle and tires consistently were serviced by accredited Honda dealer & tire pressure maintained.both Honda and Continental refused to honor the warranty.

CR-V 4-cyl

  • 28,000 miles
Unusual wear (interior edge cupping) and noise developed on the right-rear tire during the first two years of ownership (purchased new - January 2011) resulting in an unsafe tire condition. Mechanic (using computer alignment method) discovered that camber alignment was not within the specified range, however, there is no camber adjustment option on the vehicle. Without the proper camber alignment, tire destruction (in this case interior edge cupping) occurs resulting in an unsafe tire condition. An after-market part is available to provide the necessary camber adjustment, however, it is not a Honda oem part and Honda does not acknowledge responsibility related to the issue. A vehicle should have routine adjustment mechanisms to avoid destruction of parts which creates an unsafe condition without having to replace an original oem part to accommodate a necessary (and Honda recommended - vehicle alignment) adjustment.

CR-V 4-cyl

  • 19,624 miles
2011 Honda CRV 4X4 was going at 52 mph and trying to brake and steering wheel was shaking really bad. Also when driving at 65+ mph this car steering really shakes badly. -complaint it to Honda motor / dealer where car was purchased but no real help from anyone to fix the problem. - all 4-tires are worn un-evenly at 19000 miles - dealer / Honda motor is not willing to response back or send us email back to acknowledge our complaint about the tires. - they are saying that this is not their problem, I should be complaining to the tire company.
