Question Excessive Tire Wear

Just had a 7500 mile check-up service at 6400 miles on my '07 CR-V. Dealer noticed excessive wear on my front tires. Bridgestone Duelers HT tires start at 10/32" deep when new. Front were 4/32" and rear were 9/32". Tires rotated front to rear. Alignment and suspension checked, but no problems. The Honda area rep told us to put 3000 more miles on it and return to the dealer for tire check. They have told us tires will be replaced under new car warranty due to the fact that this is not proper wear for the tire.

Has anyone else noticed this problem? Honda WANTS to know!

How do you normally accelerate? If the fronts are wearing equally across the tread, it wouldn't be an alignment issue. What tire pressure do you run?

Normal acceleration and braking. The pressure is 29 psi checked every week by my anal-retentive engineer husband. Per the service manager, the wear is "flat" across the tire, he believes something is not "right" with the front end, that's why he put it on the alignment rack. They also checked steering system, sway bars, and suspension. At this rate, the fronts won't make it to 10K miles.

Hmmm weird....

The OEM tires, especially the Bridgestones aren't exactly the greatest tire though. That does seem like awful fast wear though.

Keep us posted and good luck!!!

Are you serious? The roads? I live in a city with black top roads and highways.
The roads are "normal".

the bridgestone dueler h/t's are crap... sorry to say it, but u got the worse of the tire options... just let them wear out, and when the dealer replaces them under the warranty, tell them u want the optional Continental tires... they are much better then the bridgestones.

Gee, I thought I was the only one that checks tire pressure every week. And yes, my wife thinks I'm crazy for doing it

i put nitrogen instead of air ..and the pressure is always 30 psi i check the pressure every month now and its always 30 nothing more nothing less

Here's an excellent article on why nitrogen in cars simply isn't worth it.

Coincidently, it comes from the September, 2006, Honda Service News:

Nitrogen Inflation: What’s Our Position?
Surf any automobile tire-related website these
days, and you’ll likely see something mentioned
about nitrogen inflation. It’s becoming a hot topic.
We’ve gotten a number of inquiries lately
concerning American Honda’s position on this
practice.
When it comes to inflating automobile tires, it’s
our position that ordinary, dry compressed air—
which is about 80 percent nitrogen already—is
the best choice. That’s because it’s more readily
available, and the benefits of using nitrogen
simply don’t appear to outweigh those of using
compressed air.
The practice of inflating tires with nitrogen really
isn’t anything new; it’s been around a long time.
It’s been commonly used on aerospace vehicles,
commercial and military aircraft, military vehicles,
race cars, and even heavy off-road construction
equipment. Here’s why:
• To meet rigid safety and performance specs,
the required tire inflation pressures are often
very high, especially in the aerospace industry.
The tire inflation pressure for NASA’s space
shuttle, for instance, is a whopping 315 psi!
• Nitrogen is an inert gas; it doesn’t combust or
oxidize.
• The process used to compress nitrogen
excludes water vapor. Water vapor can expand
if the temperature climbs above 212°F.
• Tires inflated with nitrogen leak slower over
time than those inflated with compressed air.
Automobile tires, on the other hand, are subjected
to an entirely different set of conditions. Here’s
why inflating tires with nitrogen offers no real
advantages:
• Although tires inflated with nitrogen leak
slower over time than those inflated with
compressed air, they still leak and need to be
reinflated to maintain proper pressure. If you
can’t find a place that offers nitrogen
inflation—and there aren’t yet all that many
places that do—your only option left is to
reinflate with compressed air. Doing that
drops the nitrogen purity.
• Nitrogen offers no better protection against
road hazards such as cuts and punctures. So
no matter what you inflate the tire with, you
still need to check the condition and pressure
of the tires at least once a month as
recommended in the O/M.
• Tires that are inflated with compressed air and
properly maintained offer the same fuel
economy, tread wear, and ride comfort as
those inflated with nitrogen.
• Nitrogen for automobile tires is produced by
nitrogen generators, which typically get about
95 percent purity. But to actually get that
level of purity into an automobile tire, you
would have to deflate and inflate that tire with
nitrogen several times. If you’re not careful
doing this repeated deflation and inflation
process, the purity level winds up being closer
to 90 percent (compared to the approximate
80 percent nitrogen already in compressed
air). Because of this, those claims of less
pressure loss with nitrogen aren’t valid.
So here’s the bottom line: Nitrogen is an ideal gas
for inflating tires in aircraft, military vehicles, race
cars, and heavy off-road equipment, but when it
comes to automobile tires, it offers no apparent
advantages over ordinary, dry compressed air.
Our advice to you: Just stick with the air you
breathe.
