Tires for 2008 CR-V

Discussion in 'CR-V' started by Peaceful Bill, Jun 11, 2008.

  1. The OEM tires on my CR-V LX 2WD suck. Any suggestions for a better tire?

  2. In what way do they suck? Handling, ride, mileage, appearance? What don't
    they do that you want them to-- or what are they doing that you don't like?

    What do you mean by "better"?

    He wants whitewalls.

  4. Well shoot, let's buy the boy a roll of masking tape and a can of
    appliance-white spray paint from Home Depot and move on to the next post...

    I guess you have never heard of portawalls -- bet JC Whitney still has em.

  6. Better handling, lower noise, better wet traction.

    Road noise is sort of a Honda trademark. I doubt you can do much about

    Honda salesman told me they don't do a 2wd version so what's going on here?

    A quick look at shows a front wheel drive (2wd) and an all wheel
    drive (AWD) version of each trim level for the 2008 CR-V. There has never
    been a rear wheel drive only version.

    Your salesman is either totally uninformed or just lying to try to sell you
    what he has on the lot.

  11. Honda salesmen are fos. Mine told me they don't do a 2WD version of
    CR-V EX. But mine's a 2WD LX.

    Check Edmunds to be sure.
    Peaceful Bill, Jun 13, 2008

    Yep -- there are 2WD versions of LX, EX, and EX-L

    You were obviously told wrong. I bought it in Tempe, Arizona in November.

  16. The salesman said that the EX 2WD models were listed but weren't
    available in the U.S. Clearly he was trying to steer me to a model that
    was more available. I still had to wait six weeks to take delivery.

    Do you trust a car salesman?

    sorry, I'm in the UK, I guess this is a US version.

    We have a 2 litre petrol anda 2.2 diesel (manual only)

    All are a 2 wheel drive in normal driving and if it detects "slippage" drive
    is fed through to the rears so not a "real" 4wd

    Personally I'm more than happywith this as in around a years driving I've
    felt the rears kick in twice for around a second or two.
    I think this gives me security, comfort and the higher driving position of
    a 4x4 without the drag, weight and complexity of other vehicles.

    Its a bit of a standing joke in the UK about the bigger 4wd cars being
    driven mainly by yummy mummys in london as that canyon outside Harrods can
    be treacherous in the rain :)

  20. How many 2WD models of each?
