Thanks,

Curt, probably not but since your having problems with front tires you need to check the front end for alignment, ball joints, and front brakes. What happened to me was my ball joints were defective. If one front tire starts oscillating while towing, the other front tire will follow resulting in wear on both tires. I lost a new set for front tires due to towing with bad ball joints.

Any brake shop can check for this with 10 minutes. Or you can check them at home.

If they are good have the brakes front brakes checked for grabbing,etc

then have alignment checked.

I learned the hard way because when the front tires went the tires took some wheel sensors out for the ABS and some other wiring. Also make sure you monitor those tires with a TPMS system.

Just my opinion.

Did you notice any excessive brake dust on the front rims. I just set my new to me 2013 CRV up for towing. It has 32K miles and the tires have about another 8K before they need replacement. We're going on a 7K trip this summer, so I thought I would leave the old tires on for a short trip to make sure everything was towing/working properly. The tires wore fine, but I had excessive brake dust and saw my dash brake light indicator coming on too soon, telling me my brakes were applying early. I adjusted the braking system and it works well, with no issues.

I replaced the tires, now that I know everything is working correctly. For those with CRV's with excessive tire noise, I hunted high and low for a quieter tire. I installed Hankook Optima H127 tires and they are night and day quieter. They're also new which helps, but I think they are a softer rubber than the Continentals I took off.

FWIW, we're now running Michelin Defenders on our 2014 CR-V. They are far quieter than the Bridgestone Duelers we had originally.

Don, thank you for the word on your Hankooks, I am in search mode for new rubber also. The Continentals only have 28000 Kilometers on them but they are noisy and not the greatest handling tire. Won't be happy till they are gone.
I have heard good reports on Michelins also.

I can help with that. Put 'em on the front of my car and let me tow it around a while. That'll finish them off.
