Default 03 odyssey

Greetings all,

I have a question about tires.

I have 42k on the van and was told by my mechanic that I will need tires
before the snow season.
I have already changed the original tires 2 years ago so I am getting about
20k pre set.
My 2nd set was Michelle Symmetry

It seems very low on milage, my Jimmy use to get 40k on a set.

Anyone know of a better tire?

TIA,
Dave-

i suggest you check this for yourself - read the tread depth.

I did the penny test as well as he showed me who low the tread was, and also
my mechanic does not sell tires or upsell or make extra money, between my
dad and myself he has 7 vehicles he works on so he gets plenty of work not
to upsell anything to us.
I also need to say my KIDS ride in the car and safety is 1st for them.

These are decent tires and should have lasted more than 20K miles.
What did your mechanic say about why these wore so quickly? Anything
about under inflated (inside and outside tread wears much faster than
center of tread) tires?

I've currently got Yokohama TRZ tires on my minivan. I run them at
about 37 psi front and 34 psi rear to maximize wear and mpg.

people make mistakes - always do your own checking.

do you think trying to play that card here earns you sympathy or
credit??? just buy new tires. treat them right. learn to drive right.
then the tires will be fine.

Ever heard of "tire rotation"?
Ever heard of "proper inflation"?
Ever heard of "correct driving/braking"?

Learn how to take care of something, and it'll take care of you.

the tires.

I know hy I left the newsgroups if some asks a question people are much too
harsh on there answers, your remarsk were way off line dude.

Mechanic says that maybe the weight of the van could be an issue with quick
wear and tear.
tread seems to be an even wear.

most of the driving is local not to much highway mileage on the van.

as far as checking, sure everybody carrys a tire depth gauge in there car.

As far as the sympathy card, I was asking about better tires and was making
a statement that the kids are in the car and I want better tires.

So how am I suppose to drive right?
Its the first vechile I have had in 25 years of driving that the tires were
quickly.
I have had 5 cars since I started driving in 86, I got great milage out of
tires until this one.
It was also my fisrt import, all others were GM based and I got 40k out of a
set of tires.

most of the milage is local street driving, not to my highway mileage on
them.

What does that matter? Does she maintain it, or do you?

"As needed", huh? What does that mean, exactly? Do you follow the
owner's manual recommendations, or just do it when you feel like it?

You "guess", huh? What the **** is an "LOF"? If you're not checking the
tires yourself, it's not getting done.

Too harsh? You think my answers were way off line, eh? They were valid
questions to your stupid question, and quite polite, actually.

Take some ****ing English lessons, pull your head out of your ass and take
care of your vehicle properly, and then.... **** off, asswipe.
