Honda CRV Tire Problem
I purchased a new Honda CR-V in 2008. I rotate the tires every 6000 miles. At about 20,000 miles I noticed excess road noise. Since it was time to rotate again I took it to the dealer. The mechanic told me the rear tires were cupped (inside edge) so bad they recommended that we not do the rotation. I had them check the alinement and was told all four corners were within Honda specs. When I complained about the low mileage tire wear the mechanic told me the factory tires (Continental 4 x 4 Contact 225/65R17) did not offer the best wear and new tires would wear better. Online blogs suggest the excess wear is due to no rear camber adjustment. There are aftermarket camber adjustment kits however the Dealer said that installing the kit would void the warranty. I called a different Dealer and was told that would NOT void the warranty.
My questions are, 1) are you familiar with this issue, 2) would a camber adjustment kit fix the problem, 3) would it void the warranty, and 4) how do I know which tires will offer the best wear? I would be willing to give up some ride quality for tires that would last longer.
Thank you in advance for your help. Jerry
