Accord Euro tyre wear

Asked by Kevin Baston

At the recent 40,000 km service on our 2010 Honda Accord Euro I was advised that all four tyres were dangerous and needed immediate replacement. All were badly worn and "chewed" out on the inside and not easy to see. The dealer's only response was to ask if the vehicle had been driven on dirt roads, which it hasn't, no explanation of the likely cause was offered or discussed.

On taking the vehicle to Goodyear they also asked exactly the same thing regarding dirt roads and were unable to give an explanation either! We believe it is a more widespread problem with this car and we told Honda so when they called to follow up up on the service satisfaction, but we've heard nothing back from them.

The Accord Euro is designed to be an agile, responsive car with sharp handling and to achieve that the geometry of the suspension is set fairly aggressively and sportier tyres are fitted. Both of those things can result in higher tyre wear, and sometimes, uneven wear. It's a good idea to keep on top of the tyre rotation; so all four tyres wear at the same rate, ensure the tyre pressures are set to the correct pressure, and have the suspension aligned.
