On my Honda Odyssey, I got a new set of tires about a year ago. Michelin Tires.


I notice the painting (or color) of the tire side has been scraping off.

It is originally black (brand new), right now, I am seeing some orange-yellow.

I see it mostly on the front wheels and very few on the back wheels.


It is very similar to the picture below.

Is this normal? What does it mean? What can I do to prevent this?

That's brake dust, cleaning (using tire cleaner and a brush) follow by tire shine to fix the problem. To avoid it you must do it on regular basis once a week or every two weeks. Its normal to see it on mainly front tires bc the brakes are bigger in the front. Oh and drive thru car washes don't really clean the tires and wheels.
