The dudes at Discount tire are telling me my factory Michelin tires are shot at 28,000 (actually much less than that because I run snows in winter) they say the factory design of the accord camber in the rear is ruining the inner portion of the rear tires, any help peeps???????

FYI - Attached is the Honda Original Tire Warranty Information and click on Michelin Promise Plan (warranty) which shows (a limited) warranty of 90k miles on Primacy MXM4 tires (if those are the ones you have on your car).

I have a Touring with the 19 Michelins and about 28,000 miles on the car - No odd/unusual tire wear.

You mentioned winter tires, are they on their own rims or do you swap the tires on the stock rims? I wonder if there was an issue with the last instal and the alignment or something is off? I haven't read anything else about unusual rear tire wear.

It’s totally possible for factory tires to wear out quickly, though I haven’t run into that issue with Michelin’s in the past. The stock Goodyear RS-A tires on my old Mazda 3 were toast at 22k miles. The Mazda did have a lot of negative camber, and would chew up tires unless they were cross rotated (vs. just front to back) to distribute the wear. I had to make sure to buy asymmetrical tires so I could swap them side to side vs. directional. I still have to do that with my Mazda 5. I haven’t noticed any undue tire wear on my 10th gen, but it’s a hybrid with LRR 17’s, and I’m only around half your mileage.. Still, the suspension setup is the same (minus the adaptive dampers) so I’d think I would have the same problem.

Beyond that everything else with tire wear comes down to driving style, and how you rotate. You can put two identical cars/tires side by side and the aggressive driver will wear them out sooner.

Were you able to get replacement rear tires? Did you replace your rims when you installed the tires? I used a set of winter tires I got from 4WheelOnline and didn't see anything unusual or any tear. I'm planning to use it again this year since it's still good condition.
