Honda Pilot rear tire wear

I'm told by a reliable alignment shop that 2004 Honda Pilots have a factory set 2 degree negative camber that can't be changed. This time I haven't rotated them and the rears need replacing while the fronts are almost like new. Can I replace just the rear ones or will the difference in circumference cause a problem when towing it?

If you replace with the same size tires - would there be any difference compared with now?

If the tires are the same size and brand, and the Pilot doesn't have 4WD, it should be no problem.
I've also had problems aligning the "non-adjustable" Hondas, and sometimes had to get creative and fab up my own camber kit. Generally speaking, though, 2 degrees, if it's FWD only, shouldn't be a huge problem. Toe will wear the tires much faster.
Two wrongs don't make a right, but three rights make a left.

Thanks for the replies, especially tmh462. My '04 Pilot is all wheel drive which is my cause for concern about having old tires in front and new ones on the rear. A friend got in big-time trouble when he replaced fronts but not rears on his Jeep Grand Cherokee.

I'm leery about changing just the rears but sure don't like buying 4 tires.

I don't get it. Both I and my wife have driven 4wd or awd since 1996. Tires wear out in pairs, and get replaced that way. Never a problem of any kind.

Is this particular to Japenese cars, or are you worrying about nothing?

Mine were mostly Chevy trucks, with a dodge and some jeeps thrown in.

Thanks Jim,
If I only drove the Pilot I'd just replace two. The problem my friend had was when towing it and we tow the Honda as much if not more miles per year than drive it.
