Hi
Has anyone experienced excessive tire wear on their Honda 2018 CR-V EX . I got only 30,000 Kil on mine before the rear tires where completely bald , and the front tires were at 60% . I was told by The dealership that they are having problems with about 5% of the cars in Canada. I was informed there was no fix and that it was up to me to replace the tires at my cost .

Honda has not come out with a fix or a recall as yet . It’s pretty frustrating , as we have only had the car for 8 months . This is our 3rd Honda and have never been looked after so poorly .

Moved thread from site issues to year relevant section.

Thats about 20k miles. Were the tires rotated and at how many KMs?

Tires were not rotated , but as I mention the dealer ship admits there is a problem with no fix at this point.

What? What problem?

They are just weak tires. This has been brought up many times. It doesn't bother me because I don't expect much from the stock tires. I feel like it's expected they get replaced

Or are you saying there is a problem that will wear the new tires as well?

Imo, the entire suspension sucks. Too light to support the weight of this vehicle. Thus far I've been unable to source any aftermarket or oem replacement parts from other vehicles to stiffen it up to reduce body roll and diving.

There is a problem , they said new tires will do the same thing and not to put on good tires until they figure out what the fix is . That’s straight from the service manager .

My OEM tires were wearing quickly and I had an alignment done; the rear alignment was a bit off. The wear has really slowed down since then.

Did you do a tire rotation at all? Should have done at least one by 30,000km, so I would have expected your wear to be a bit more even.

Wow. Glad you're in VA and I am in FL. If you are getting body roll, I don't want to be driving anywhere near you. I am always surprised, given that it's a tall vehicle with high ground clearance (relatively), just how little there is.

Hi I have a 2012 crv with the same problem the driver side rear wheel. Was leaning in consider a 4 wheel alignment for 75 bucks
You'll be wasting you money. The read camber is nonadjustable on your CRV. You can buy adjustable struts to correct the rear camber.

I can't speak for a 2018, but my 2010 had the same problem, 20k on faithfully rotated OEM tires. A local tire /suspension shop explained that the rods that control rear wheel camber are not adjustable. He showed me a list he made of all the makes and models that have the same problem. He recommended an after market set of replacement rods that were adjustable. The rear suspension was able to be zeroed-in after installation and tire wear was much improved. The price installed was about $150.

Same issue on my 2017, about literally bald rear tires at 27k miles, with regular rotation by the dealership, when they got to 7/32 it was only about a month to go to 0/32 and the replacement tires seem to be the same. I will be throwing camber adjustment bars on the back when the powertrain warranty runs out, assuming they can fix the oil issue by that point, the dealership said they aren't allowed to do the fix yet since we are in texas.

please clarify, so you can only do front wheel alignments for the 2017 CRV EX's ???
I only have 19+k miles on wife's CRV and tread ware is still good (still looks new), but lately, I did noticed the humming sound of the tires when on concrete pavement at 60+ mph, very quite on asphalt surfaces though.

IMO, in my case it will be advantageous that the rear wheels is fixed thus will not get misaligned).
I finally trained the wife not to park too close to the curb so not to hit/rub against it.

re: "You can buy adjustable struts to correct the rear camber". Please provide maker and their part numbers. I'm sure this will help many others.

curious, even if the rear wheels are fixed, won't they know if it is off or misaligned when they do the wheel alignment ? if so, would that be a warranty issue ?

Rear Camber is fixed with an aftermarket control arm; I don't think Honda uses eccentric bolts on the strut for this.

The Dorman 526390 and Moog K90489 are listed for this application.

I had the same problem on my 2018. Took it to the dealer and they said I had hit something and needed major suspension work. Took it to a place that specializes in suspension work and they found every bolt in the rear was loose and just needed to be pulled in place and everything tightened properly. Cost me $500 for tires and an alignment but now the tires are not wearing like they were. By the way I never hit anything that would have caused this. Not a scratch on the car or any under cartage damage

A recent communications posted on the NHTSA web site from Honda to dealers is asking for dealers to inform Honda of any vehicles that come in with this issue and to not repair them until a Honda Support Engineer first gets a chance to look at the vehicle.

So.. yeah.. you are correct, Honda knows there is an issue with some CRVs (not all, some) and is working to understand and isolate the cause. Makes sense.. because until you understand the cause and how to correct it.. it's premature to issue any recalls or TSBs.

I bet, like a number of other issues that appear to affect only a subset of vehicles, this will come down to some defective parts used in production... that will need to be replaced.
