I just read that some had tire problems with Camry Hybrid. Yes, I do have at 25 K, tires do not pass inspection. The tires on Camry Hybrid are sucks and Toyota does't care about tires. They put cheap tires that do not last long. I wrote to Toyota and the tire manufacturer. The usual reply like rotation, tire pressure. I rotated every 5K and filled every month via pressure checking device. Waste of money on rotation also. When the cars come with bad tires, it does not matter what you do. Toyota uses Bridgestone tires and whole world knows that they are bad. HOnda does a good job on their cars as far as tires go. They use top quality tires on their cars that last long. Unlike them, Toyota goes for cheap tires given to them by the manufacturers of tires.
Next time, I will have dealer replace the tires to good quality ones before delivery and negotiate the price.

I posted this in response to your other comment in the other thread:

'I've got over 36k miles on a set and not a problem yet. Check air pressure regularly and rotate them regularly and you're good to go.'

If you run at improper air pressure, don't rotate and just drive the car w/o ever doing basic maintenance then they're going to wear early. This goes for any tire. OEM tires are known to have shorter tread life so this isn't unusual at all and some even wear out at the 20k mark and earlier because of the softer tread.

But, as with any car part, the better care you take of it the longer it will last.

Not an expert, but I believe some tires are thought to be either quieter or give a smoother ride, not sure which it is, but this is done with a softer tire, thus quicker tread wear.
I could be wrong on this, but I believe that was the case here.

You must have Bridgestones. My mom's went out at 33,000 miles on her 07 Camry. I had Michelin and mine lasted until 60,000. Both cars had even tread wear and tires rotated every 5,000 miles.
