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.

I have a 1989 4.3L v6 chevy s10 baja 4x4 and the front tiers wear on the inside of the tire i believe it comes factor with a 4' lift so why is this if possible please help me figure out


if this is an independent suspension vehicle then wheel alignment adjustment is by shims normally under the upper control arm mounting bolts.. (Possibly by the eccentric washes on the bottom bolts) By lifting the body it has effectively given the steering tow out the steering connecting rods are now shorter as the body has been lifted) and that is what causes wear on the inside of the tyres. The tyres are in fact pointing out at the front and are being dragged sideways as they rotate.. Find an accredited wheel alignment shop with an operator that is familiar with aligning raised vehicles and the tyre wear problem will disappear. unfortunately when tyres developer a wear pattern they will retain that wear patter even after an alignment so be prepared for new front tyres as well.

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

Tire wear 2011 hyundai elantra


take the car to a suspension specialist shop and have the rear wheels aligned first
have the suspension checked for worn mounts or bad springs
it is very important that the rear end is aligned before the front end
suspect that the suspension rubbers need replacing as it is over 6 years old
the tyre rotation is a myth perpetrated on drivers to sell tyres
when the tyre construction was cross-ply and not radials yes rotation then on cross-ply tyres could get the wear to even out but with radials once the wear is started then the tyre continually wears in that pattern regardless of which wheel it is on
even if you take that tyre of the car and put it on a trailer , it will still continue to wear in that pattern
tyres are no longer rotated but simply put front to back on the same side other wise the belts flex in a new direction in the tread and fail earlier that expected
besides that fact that tyre rotation will not allow you to monitor for suspension problems or wheel alignment problems and cost you 4 tyres at a time instead of two

Hi there I have an Mitsubishi Outlander LS 2.4ltr. The problem is the front left tyre is always scrubbing out on the outer side. It now to date has had 5 wheel alignment/balances, of which the last was...


You may need a Camber kit installed, the camber is preset on most cars these days but they do make kits to add or subtract Camber, you likely have a Camber issue here. Camber is the tilt of the wheel outward or inward, to much positive can scrub the tire like you stated it was doing. You need to find a really good front end tech and explain the problem to him and he can custom align to stop the wear issue.

2004 mitsubishi outander rear wheels tilting - extreme tyre wear.


Yes there is adjustment. You need to get the alignment checked out. It could be worn bushes and/or damage to the suspension linkages and struts.

Is it normal for my tires to hum in my 2007 impreza wagon? sounds like i have a rice burner sometimes, but only from the cockpit!


If they are all terain or off road tyre's then it's normal if it has road tyre's then it would be best to get it checked wheel bearings and brakes.

1998 olds aurora wears out inside of front tires


Unless there is noise or play when cornering sharply at low speeds (parking), the CV joint / boot is still ok. The joint does need grease in there and the rubber boot fitted properly very soon.

As the suspension is set, the axle does little more than provide drive. It doesn't affect toe-in or camber angle.

Camber angle (vertical tilt inwards) is a product of the suspension design, and often cannot be altered.

Weak front springs can also throw this angle out, as the vehicle sits too low.

Toe-in (forward point angle) can and must be set accurately, or you will skid about in wet weather depending which tyre grips more.

What is most important to you, is the tyre design, tread width and outer radius. Also the tyre pressures MUST be mid limit when cold on the front - otherwise excess wear will result.

Having tyres with a large contact area that are too rigid on the front will increase wear to the insides.

Also, it is good practice to rotate the tyres to even-out wear. Usually front tyres move to rear axle, and rears swap sides to front axle. If wear is uneven, pop them off and turn around before refitting. Some tyres you cannot do this with.

If you choose a tyre with a harder tread compound, or ones with "C" at the end of the code, these will again last a lot longer.

Thanks for using Fixya!. If this provides an answer for you, please rate as such. Thanks.
