Default Do Honda CRV's have tire problems?

My Honda CRV 4WD has less than 25K mi on it. I had to buy 2 new tires because they said they were bald because I didnt rotate them every 8K mi. Well, I took the car in to have the tires rotated and they refuse to rotate them because the back tires are "bald". Seems like I am going to spend a fortune on tires for this car. Is Honda CRV's hard on tires? Do you know anything about tires on a CRV. Seems a lil crazy my tires are bald at 25K mi.

Seems like you should start doing some basic routine and inexpensive maintenance. Then you won't have to replace tires so much.

don't buy crappy tires. that is your problem

you can't put bald tires on your drive axle, that would be really really stupid.

The other problem could be you. If you drive the car like a maniac that will wear the tires quickly too.

Your CRV is not to blame in this case though.

My wife bought a used CRV (1998) in 2000 before I had a chance to inspect it. I was away on a trip and she said, "I just fell in love with it." When I got home I crawled underneath it to find a lot of rust in it's infancy which told me it was driven on the beach and not rinsed off. We live in NC. The car had new tires and the mileage on the clock was around 12,000. I wanted it to go back but by then, the sale was 2 weeks old. I took it back still and complained about the rust. They would not take it back since the rust did not fall under the lemon law. But they did treat it with a chemical that stopped the rust. I was satisfied. 6 months later I noticed the left rear wheel had the rubber eaten off the inside. My wife was the driver and she drives like my grandmother. I took it to the dealer we bought it from and found out it had a bent rear axle. Of course they did not want to cover it. I told them if they didn't, I would spend all my free time with a big sign on top of the car noting the problems with the car. They fixed it the next day when I came back with a permit to display the sign. They even put a new set of tires on it. That made me suspicious. I religiously rotated the tires and with 30,000 miles on the tires, I began to notice a wear pattern on the inside of all of them. I took it to a guy I knew for a long time that did my alignments and found that unless a 4 wheel alignment was done on the car with the normal weight of 2 people, I would get a wear pattern like that no matter what. The only way to avoid that wear pattern was to ditch the recommended tires and get tires where the compound on the outside is a lot harder than normal tires. I bought Dunlops for it. I don't remember the model since it was 10 years ago since I bought them. I have since sold the car with great regret. I really learned to like that thing. Even thouhg it was a 4 cylinder, it had AWD and never missed a beat whether in sand, mud, snow or ice. To shorten this story, yes, I had trouble with tire wear on my CRV but I was able to overcome it with a variable compound tire. The wear pattern reminded me of how the tires wear on a Taurus.
