Initial Review, 40,000 Miles on Tires
January 03, 2013

These tires came new with the vehicle from the factory. They were rotated according to Honda's schedule but one of them developed uneven wear at the center. The center has worn down to 3/32" for the bad tire, while the other 3 tires have 4/32" left.

Hydroplane performance could be better during a recent rain storm, but they only had 4/32" left so I cannot complain. Treadwear is unsatisfactory because Goodyear rates them for 60k, but at 40k they only have 3-4/32" left. Noisy as well since about 25k miles, so much that it sounded like wheel bearing failure and I took it to the dealership. Rode with a Honda tech and his diagnosis was tire noise, and I trusted his words because I had dealt with him a couple of times.

At this point, I am waiting for rebate deals and am probably going to give Michelin Latitude Tour a try next.
