I'd be interested in knowing how many Honda CRV owners have suffered from roaring and whining noises from their towed CRVs due to tire cupping. We have a 2005 CRV and are on our third set of tires. After about 5,000 miles of towing the tires begin to sound like snow tires and create a loud roaring and whining noise. Each time we take it into the dealers they give one excuse after another (misalignment, poor balancing, etc.). We keep the car in good alignment all the time, rotate the tires every 5,000 miles, and follow all the manufacturers recommendations, but it just seems to chew up tires. We're very careful about having our tow bars and tow plate mounted properly and at the right height. I've taliked with two other CRV owners with similar problems. Is there a problem created when towing a CRV?
