Failure Date: 07/09/2006

My 2005 Acura Tl el42 bridgestone rear tires went completely bald on a 3000 mile trip(19000 miles total) from dallas to colorado and back. It appears that there is a suspension/tire problem where the rear alignment under full load of 2 passangers and luggage in the trunk degrades and causes severe tire wear. This causes severe loss of control on wet pavement with rear hydroplaning at even <50 mph. Acura has a TSB and replace tires at lowered cost but only with the suspect el42 tires. After further internet searches this seem not to be isolated incident.

The contact stated when hitting a bump the rear end the vehicle skidded out. Causing abnormal tire wear. He replaced the rear tires twice, every 7,000-8,000 miles. The vehicle has been taken to two different dealerships, and they were unable to diagnose the problem. Updated 12/7/2005. The consumer's vehicle is now on it's third set of tires. The dealer stated that since the rear tire were worn evenly that alignment was not the problem.
