Is that dirt, or a scuff on the wheel near the tire bulge? Did you hit something? A pothole, curb, zombie?

Dirt ahah. Thats the driver side tire/wheel I can't recall it if i got it last night or this morning, I noticed when i got home today after a short drive. I usually avoid pot holes but i do hit small ones here and there since its snow season as well.


Thanks for the responses, my dealer DCH Paramus Honda opens up service at 60 AM ( all appointments are booked) I plan on stopping by right at 6 to get this serviced/replaced, I do have the tire protection so it is to my understanding the replacement will be free.

I will update once its resolved.
For those that had walk in issues resolved how long do you spend at the service/dealership before getting the issue fixed? I know appointments are better but I can't drive around and wait for this so I plan on dropping it first thing in the morning. I do work early around 9:30 so hopefully i get done quick but my main concern is getting this fixed. I do have roadside so do I ask for a rental?

Not sure if this helps. A quick read of your tire’s warranty may better prepare you for tomorrow. If DCH is not an authorized dealer for your tire brand, they may refer you to one. If this really concerns you and time is an issue, you can always put on your spare tire.

If, when they take the tire off, they see that it was cause by a cut on the inside, that is a road hazard issue, not a mfgr defect. Look at the package you got with the car, it will explain the tire warranty.

I feared the 19's would eventually pop with pot holes and etc ( I try my best avoiding them)
which is why i got the tire protection from the dealership that states they cover potholes/road hazards. Lets hope i have a smooth transaction with them

I am guessing, but is that the driver's side front tire?

5,000 miles is not much, but when you get a new tire, you may want to rotate the rears to the front as the car is front wheel drive. The new tire may be ever so slightly "larger" in size (less rubber worn off) than the remaining passenger side front tire- and that can cause issues.

Check the tread depth on all tires. Multiple measurements at center and sides of the tire's "face".

This is minor, but I always find those YouTube videos of tire weight and size interesting. Just a few hundredths less of a diameter can cause some alignment and shimmy issues, and I always marvel at how you can shave 1/15th of a second of 0-60mph times with "almost bald" tires than when they are new.

Oh, please click on your UserCP to update your city location to help the next 100 people coming across your post as to why the tire is defective vs. potholes, etc...are you in Detroit, SoCal, Vietnam, Ice Station Zebra, etc...

And your signature says "270 miles"??? Do you have a 2005 Accord EX-L 4 cylinder coupe (the greatest Accord ever made) with Honda clear coat fade and meant that you have 270,000 miles so that your engine is now broken in?

I will say that accord belongs to you good sir!
but yes that is my drivers side, i'm surprised honestly because i have sadly hit pot holes and gotten no damage from them ( knock on wood) you think i should mention that to the dealer? to rotate the back tires to the front of they would know.

on another note how do you go asking for a loaner for those who have gotten one?

I don't think I'd mention potholes to them; they'll figure it out when the tire is dismounted. But I would ask them to put the back tires up front.

Got the Tire replaced, no fee charged. Waited a total about two hours which was not that bad went by quick.
They left the new tire up front with the old tire due to the mileage the guys said, so far i have done two drives and have gotten up to speed. No shaking or nothing so quick shout out to DCH for making this customer happy. Thanks for all the help fellas

got the same problem

I had the same problem at around 5000 miles. The front two tires had a bulge on each of them, probably from running over a pothole on a highway. I called continental directly and they told me they didn't cover road hazard but they can take a look at it at one of their shops. The local tire company called continental after they saw it and told me they would not cover it but give me 50% off of the same tire. I have a 2016 touring btw.

right and left tire respectively

How have your tires been now? I have the 3n1 protection from dealership so it came out for free, but im still worried this might happen in the future
