ASSUMING you aren't a tyre-burning petrolhead, I don't think you have been fairly treated at all and would recommend you pursue Honda for a resolution. Though tyres are a consumable and not covered by the warranty, you should have confidence you will have much longer tyre life than 8000km. Honda should come to the party with part-payment at the very least. Not only that, they should also check the alignment and make sure there isn't a problem that will affect the life of the new tyres.
Price on an accord
THE kilometres are higher than average for a 2005 model, which will hold the value down a little, but I would try for about $30,000. A dealer would probably pay you about $25,000 or trade it in at $30,000, which is what I would try to get for it. You might get a few bucks more if you are patient.
Wheel or imaginary
THE rate of wear on the rear tyres on all-wheel-drive cars will be higher because they're driving when the rear tyres on a front-wheel-drive car aren't. That said, the front tyres of both all-wheel-drives and front-wheel-drives wear at about the same rate, so the added wear is related to the rear tyres of the all-wheel-drive cars which will wear out at about the same rate as the front tyres.
