Question about Hyundai Santa Fe
Cupped or scalloped tires can be caused by many things. Cups or scalloped dips appearing around the edge of the tread on one side or the other, almost always indicate worn (sometimes bent) suspension parts. Adjustment of wheel alignment alone will seldom cure the problem. Any worn component that connects the wheel to the car (ball joint, wheel bearing, shock absorber, springs, bushings, etc.) can cause this condition. Worn components should be replaced with new ones. The worn tire should be balanced and possibly moved to a different location on the car. Occasionally, wheels that are out of balance will wear like this, but wheel imbalance usually shows up as bald spots between the outside edges and center of the tread. Don't forget to check the control arm bushings and ball joints as play or looseness here can also allow unwanted gyrations in the wheel and tire as the vehicle travels down the road.
