2017 CRV Touring - Pearl White w Black Interior
I have a 2018 CR-V EX with almost 15,000 miles on it. It has Bridgestone tires on it and they already show considerable wear. I have friends who have 2017 CR-Vs and they had to replace the tires at 30,000 and they don't do any crazy driving. I had Honda Accords for years before I got the CR-V and I would get around 55,000 miles from a set of tires. They were Michelin MXV4+ on the Accords,
but I thought that Bridgestone was a good brand. I took it to a local tire place, and they are a trustworthy business. The owner said that it seems to be a problem with the later model CR-Vs. He said other brands of SUVs don't have that problem and get normal wear on their tires. Does anyone with a 2017 or newer CR-V not have this problem with tires wearing out? I live in New England.
You are not going to get 55K miles on OEM tires on any CRV... period. You can approach that with a set of Michelin Defenders... but those are not OEM for Honda.. those are good quality after market tires. Personally, the most I ever got off a set of OEM tires on a CRV was 21K miles.. and that was on my gen3.
As noted above in another post.. some gen5 CRVs have been reported to have abnormal tire wear on the rear wheels. I personally do not see this on mine, but there have been enough reports that Honda has an open investigation as to cause and corrective action.
Accords do better then a CRV in terms of tire life.. because they are completely different tires (wid profile sedan tires rather then general purpose SUV tires). I have Hankook tires on both my 2017 CRV and my wifes 2018 Accord. The Hankooks appear as though they will give 30K+ miles on the Accord, but on the CRV... it appears more like low 20K miles are to be expected. This is based on current tread wear on both vehicles. Now.. that said... I drive almost exlusively in town on short trips in my CRV and my wife does mostly freeway driving in her Accord.. so that is part of it... but also the profile and tread characteristics between the two sets of Hankooks are completely different as well.
