Default Tires, Dunlop, Fit

Came with the new car, just under 20K miles, down to wear indicator,
least mileage I can remember (OK, my memory doesn't go back to the '54
new Ford, my first car), what crap tires:-(

Gonna all be replaced by Michelins I'll have to order from the local
Costco (USA), as they don't carry **any** tires for the 2011 fit)??!!

Tires aren't car specific, all you need are the right size.

What car, and what have you been doing with it!?

NSX was infamous for eating tires in 20k miles but that was supposedly
a design decision and especially gummy tires, figured if you could
afford an NSX tires were no problem.

I had not heard of an issue with any current Honda vehicle and tires
going in 20k miles.

Actually I've been meaning to look at my Accord tires at less than 20k
miles, just out of the corner of my eye the edges seemed a little
funky the other day, so thanks for reminding me, but I'm guessing
they're OK.

Not sure what u mean; Costco has NO tires for the 20112 Fit in stock
locally. I ordered four Michelins yesterday, to arrive in a few days,
maybe less. The problem is the size needed, not the specificity,
unfortunately.

Just sedately driving my 3 year old Fit. OK, at age 81 still going
strong, though! Checked the wear indicators on all 4 tires, agreed wioth
my tread depth indicator of unknown origin.

Check your tire pressures regularly and get an alignment once in a while
and you won't have that problem.

Been driving cars and caring for tires for over 60 years without the
above problem! The wear was not uneven but equal per the wear
indicator(s) on all 4 tires

I guess it's not a popular size. It's only a few days difference.....as
long as you're not threadbare it won't make a difference other than having
to make two trips. Have you ever tried Tire Rack?
