A friend has a Honda CR-V with the OEM tires. They’re for highway use, not “all terrain”. He drives the CR-V on backwoods forest roads all the time. Dirt, or gravel. We’re talking 50 miles on those roads for each trip. Highway tires have tight tread that grabs gravel and holds onto it. Do enough driving on gravel and those tires will be loaded with trapped gravel. If you just leave it, some of it can become deeply embedded in the tire casing. It takes needle nose pliers or a “dental tool” to get it out. If you do pull out the embedded gravel, you’re left with a big pit in the casing. In the past month they’ve had a flat tire, and two other tires with low pressure. They take the car to Les Schwab and all they get is a vague diagnosis like “small leak” or “topped off the pressure”. To me those diagnoses are ridiculous. Tires do not suddenly lose pressure or go flat for no reason. I’ve suggested strongly that he periodically dig out the trapped gravel, but that’s scoffed at. I suggested maybe he needs all terrain tires that don’t suck up gravel, but that’s also scoffed at. The tires have 50% tread remaining so why throw away money on new tires. I guess my point is Why would you ignore the fact that you’re obviously using the wrong tires for your driving, the tires are telling you they’re wrong, and you’re too cheap to get the correct tires for your driving even though you can EASILY afford them.
