    We have a 2016 CRV - LX AWD (my wife's car) and I noticed the front tires were balding bad on the outside thread compared to the back tires (they looked fine) at just 20k miles. I read the Honda CR-V owners manual which stated Replace your tires with radials of the same size, load range...

  5. 2007 - Rear Brakes are Original after 174,000 Miles

    Problems & Issues
    Hey Guys, I have replaced the front brakes 3 times over 174,000 miles but the rears are still original with 3mm left on pads. This does not sound normal to me. Could there be a problem with the proportioning valve, or is this normal for this car. Thanks G

    Replaced original front brakes on my 2013 CRV-EX in September. I drive lots of highway miles and average 1k+ weekly for this fleet vehicle. This is what I learned: 1. Front brakes wear faster than rear, so do not be confused because of the difference between braking allocation. It is around...
