If it is just the rt front then you have a camber problem on this side.it can be shimmed if nothing is bent or worn. should be able to trake it to a alignment shop and they can shim while aligning

Very uneven tyre wear - wearing on both inside front tyres


Uneven tyre wear is caused by either worn bushes or incorrect tracking.

It sounds as though your car is 'toe in' and needs the wheels tracking - aligning. Take it to a tyre fitting bay - it doesn't cost much to have it checked/rectified.

97 Cadillac Delegance Front end noise , dissapears when going into right hand turn then returns when straightening out. Tires recently rotated and balanced , tire that was on right front had wear pattern...


I would be checking out the wheel bearings for the problem. I would also be checking the front suspension for worn ball joints and steering end joints. Tyre wear patterns indicate unbalance-wheel alignment-shock absorbers and front end wear. I refuse to rotate tyres for several reasons Radial tyres when developing a wear pattern will retain that wear pattern even if placed on a trailer--Wear patterns show a fault for that wheel and tells which wheel and what needs to be done to repair it and lastly tyres wear in pairs so if you have a front wheel drive car why replace 4 tyres when the need is to replace only 2 front ones. Saves about 50% of the cost of tyres. The rotation theory came about from cross ply tyres and does not apply to radials except for tyre dealers profits

What to do when the steering wheel pulls to the left while driving


Three common faults here are;
1) Steering alignment - if the front tyres are wearing on the insides then the wheels are facing toe-out. If on the outsides then they're toe-in. The only way to really get them aligned properly is by laser light at a garage. Cause can be altered ride height, mounting a kerb badly, wear in suspension.
2) Worn part in the suspension system, most likely a suspension arm bush or ball joint has deteriorated, uneven and/or premature tyre wear suggests this is more likely the cause.
3) Uneven tyre pressures or sizes. If a tyre is down on pressure or one wheel is oddly sized then you can get a diagonal pivot effect accross the car's chassis, causing it to pull to one side.This effect can also happen due to a broken suspension coil/leaf spring for the same reason.

Wineding sound from the wheels


the scallop is probably your noise. that or a wheel bearing. scalloping is either caused by bad shocks or poor alignment. should have front end checked out and alignment performed. good luck!

REAR TIRES WEARING OUT THEY ARE RIDING ON THE INSIDE OF THE TIRE ONLY


Hello there:
The only possibility is that you need a camber adjustment. If that were the case, the tires would be wearing more on the inside edges. If they're not, either ease up on the gas a little bit, or just put $2 a week in a piggy bank for your next set of rear tires, and don't worry about it. the tires that come with this car are made of a relatively soft compound. The softer the rubber, the goo-ier the tires, and the more the car "sticks" to the road. That's one of the reasons you can drive down circular parking garage ramps at 65 mph in this car. The downside of softer tires is that they wear out faster. So it may be a combination of your driving and the type of tires you have.

What makes the xterra pull to the side?


Hi, first of all i would check the tyre pressure, after that i would inspect the tyres for un-even wear i.e wearing more on the inside of the tyre than the outer. If there is wear then this would mean that your steering tracking is off.

CV JOINTS wearing out..


CV joints wont cause bad tyre wear, wheel alignment angles will and so will worn bushes or ball joints get front suspension checked bad shockers or struts will cause tyre wear.
CV joints cause clicking noise on hard take off worse when doing U turn, or sharp turn from take off.

Golf mk3 pulls to the left


First check your tyre pressures.If they check out ok, try wheel alignment.The fact that your steering wheel does not centre may mean its had new track rod ends or steering rack and hasn,t been aligned properly.
