Tyre wears very quickly.recommended PSI. I have the 19 inch tyres. Once these wear I am changing to another brand as its getting rediculous.

Pete - May 29, 2021

I'm on my 3 set of tyres in 4.5 years. The last set lasted only 9000 miles and the metal came through on the inside of the front and back drivers side. The other side was worn to 1mm of both tyres too. I had alignment checks two years running and checked the tyre pressures complied with Peugotes recommended PSI.

Very poor wear characteristics

Walt - April 14, 2021

I have a 2019 Honda HR-V with just 12,300 miles on the clock. I have just 3mm of tread left on both front tyres. This is simply unacceptable and the response from both Honda and Michelin has not offered any reason why wear should be so poor. I am looking to replace with Continentals after a period of swapping the tyres from the rear for a few thousand miles more.
