Just wondering if u can help me?
My 97 trooper is wearing the inside of my front right tyre, its very bad and the tracking is ok,
Ive heard of a shim pack that can be fitted to alter the KPI angle.
Is this so?

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
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
