Q: Why don’t my tires last very long?

asked by on

I thought I was being frugal when I bought my 2006 Honda Civic, but it’s going through tires so fast that I might as well have bought something more expensive! I'm spending a lot on tires because when my first pair wore out really quickly, I thought low quality tires were the root of the problem. I bought a very high quality (read: expensive) set of wheels to hopefully eliminate the problem (I didn’t even know that this was a problem - just thought I was too rough on the factory tires) but after half of their warrantied mileage, they were covered in flat spots! The road noise was so annoying that I had the tires replaced again. This is too many tires for 80,000 miles! I mostly drive on the highway anyway. How can I solve this problem?
