if it has independent rear suspension then have the suspension rubbers checked and replace if necessary. Next for all wheel alignments it is essential that the rear end is aligned first to stop this tyre wear before the front wheels are aligned . IF you have leaf springs at the rear check for axle alignment and broken centre bolts or worn rubbers at the centre bolt mounts.
Just one tire or both? Likely you need an alignment done, but other things can cause tire balding and cupping. Brakes pulling to one side or other can also cause tires to wear prematurely and unevenly. Worn Shocks/Struts are also culprits. Worn or broken bushings in the suspension. Also, bearings starting to seize up can cause this as well. In other words, a BUNCH of things can cause the problem. If you have no issues with steering, handling, braking, it is likley just a simple alignment is needed. Take it in to a reputable place and they can diagnose the exact cause and suggest repair needed. Good luck.
Sounds like you should have the alignment checked on an alignment machine on all 4 wheels.Once you get those readings and an expert alignment mechanic's estimate on repair,only then will you know the correct repairs needed.
How did the old tires wear. Looking at them will be the indicator of an issue. If they wear on the inside you have a lower ball joint issue. If wearing on the outside the upper ball joints are bad, Also you may of got a defective tire or the balance weight fell off. Also tha axle bearing nut may be loose. Also the linkage going across could have bad ball joints. Best to go get it inspected. Its worth it rather than trying to figure it out yourself
Although "Rotors" would have been a good guess, the wheel bearings, ball joint and tie rods should all have been checked after the wheels were lifted off the ground. Also the Caliper Bolts and/or Bolt Guides should be checked to see if they are warped. Warpage could also cause shuddering.
Is there any shaking while at highway speeds (without the braking)? Then it could be an alignment issue.
A bald tire in the front is not helping matters...it is dangerous and illegal in most states. The small dent in the rim in the back is not safe either. This could lead to a catastrophic tire failure. You can hammer those back a little and make it safer.
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.
If they were installed by another ford dealer using genuine ford parts they would be warrantied for 12 months/12000 miles.Just present them your receipt.If you can not find it call the orignal dealer and ask for a copy,
