ah, if I had more time, maybe I would have gone for those and saved a little bit of money.
I do need to replace all 4 tires in our family's blue 2004 Accord sedan 4-cyl. Maybe I should look into these for that car if they are the cheapest.
They are not the cheapest. You can get Chinese or Korean made tires for even less, but you may as well up yor life insurance policy.
Yokohamas are US made.

I hear you. My wife has 60K miles in her 2004 CRV and is on the way to the dealer now to replace the 3rd cracked wheel! There needs to be a recall on this, it's not safe to have welds cracking on wheels!

I am sure if there are enough people having their wheels crack, NTSB would be involved in the investigation. Has it been reported to NTSB?

I have a 2008 CR-V - bought new Nov.08 - within 24 hrs I noticed a slight shimmy in the vehicle. From my six months of investigation ( 5 times to dealer, and 3 independent garages and a Honda Canada field engineer) - I have agreement that there is a shimmy. My dealer wrote on the invoice " shimmy present, normal characteristic for this vehicle". I have filed a CAMVAP complaint to hold Honda accountable. Soon after Honda Canada called wanting to look at it??
The field engineer says he feels it and it is probably coming from the rear end. We'll see!
AND he also said that the OEM tires - Dueler HT, and all tires today are made of a rayon based material and therefore when the vehicle sits overnight there will be flat spots on the tires that take 10-15 mins of driving to alleviate. I have noticed this with the Dueler tires but not on the Michelin's on my 2nd vehicle!! I think this is the case for the Bridgestone's but all other tires - - I doubt it.
Any one else had this problem?

Bump up the tire pressure to minimize flat spotting. Although, flat spotting should not be happening from overnight stay.
If you have anywhere over 15,000 miles on the stock tires, they are probably worn out. Check the thread depth.

I had a similar shimmy problem on my 2008 CRV right after I bought it. The dealer finally switched out the original Bridgestone tires for Continentals and it seem to solve the problem. However, tire balancing is still very critical in preventing future shimmy problems. Ariz. George
#291 of 342 What psi do you keep on your CRV
Jul 14, 2009 (4:36 pm)
I just replaced the original BF Goodrich Touring Traction T/A on my wife's 02 CRV at 92,000 miles! I keep the psi at 36 for town driving and 42 for high speed.
I just find the recommended 26psi somewhat low, the tires always look like under-inflated.
What is the common practice of CRV owners in this respect?
ps: the replacement tires are BF Goodrich Touring Premier T/A, rated at 70k miles, just over $400 at Costco. I chose to stick with BF Goodrich instead of Michelin, with the $70 off offer, since I hear about noise level with the Michelin.
