E430 rear tyres scrubbing on iside shoulder approx 1 inch


I am not an Mercedes expert, but if your rear axle is not solid from one side to the other, you have one of a number of hinged floating rear axles. These may simply require an alignment, just as the front end requires.

With excess wear on the inside track of the tires, the inside of the tire is pitched down lower than the outside edge. Most rear tires are set to run level or slightly pitched to improve handling.

If your rear assembly is not adjustable, the connecting bushings are worn on the linked suspension or the rear axle bearings have excess clearance.

Go somewhere to have a 4 wheel alignment, not to be confused with 4 wheel drive.

Please rate my info.

the front tyres are deformed with the sun by the sound of it ,yes tread looks ok but after a few years tyres do deform and go out of round,this is a fairly common problem especially here in spain where its nearly always sunshine ,except today which is why iam answering questions on here as too cold and wet outside .Anyway jack vehicle up and spin wheel and you will see what i mean

Mitsubishi Pajero Exceed short chassis,2000, rear wheels dip in a bit looking from the back, is the wheel alignment off?


these have inderpendant suspension and can look like the top of rear tyres are further in than the bottom, if both sides are about the same then is prob normal.
If you carry a lot of weight in the rear regulary then would reccommend a wheel alignment when the vehicle is fully loaded.
otherwise take a look at the tread of the rear tyres, if the edges have worn a lot more than the centre then an alignment is due...

I HAVE A NOISE COMING FROM THE REAR OF A s40 VOLVO SOUNDS LIKE THE ENGINE ON A PUTT PUTT BOAT(SORRY THATS AS CLOSE AS i CAN GET) DEALER SAYS PIRELLI TYRES ARE RUBBISH AND THEY ARE MAKING THE NOISE ,i THINK...


with the car parked, rub your hand over the treads of your tire...unusually bumpy? compare to the fronts... if a tire is out of balance, esp. in the rear, it can make alot of noise...
solution is to replace tire and rebalance

Pulling to Left


Hello!
Perhaps you may be looking in the wrong area, have you checked tyre pressures? also tyre condition? you have obviously had the tracking checked? If all these are o.k. maybe a Brake caliper is binding slightly on the nearside wheel?
Good luck! Hope this sorts it for you? press the Blue Button to appraise my Free effort if it does,

Recommended tyre pressures (touring) for 1987 Corolla FX


There should be a sticker on your door, or door post, or glove box, that tells recommended pressures. I'm guessing 30 to 35 psi. When in doubt, I go few psi lower than max. stamped on tire to start, then back it down 2 psi or so at a time until I get the ride, feel & handling that I like, then I watch the tread after a good drive down the highway. Dark on outside edges of tires, lighter in middle,air too low, add 2 psi at a time. Dark in center but lighter on outside edges, too much, remove 2 psi. & retry. Good ride, good handling, tread same all across, bingo, then I note it. Add few more pounds when carrying full load, back off to my notes for normal driving. Ride feels rougher than normal over bumps, lower it 2 psi. etc. etc. etc.
