Yes it could be that you tire are very much weared, this causes he wheels diameter smaller so the spedo counts slower

    If I Knew previously the odometer has stopped then my answer would have been different, It could be a faulty gear in the spedo unit, or a faulty spedo cable. Inspect your cable to see if its sticky

Front tyres bolding on the outside


Cars and trucks are supposed to have their tires rotated every 5,000 miles.
Doing this will only slow the wear on the outside of the tire. Whenever you turn a corner, the weight of the car and the forces of friction will cause the outside of the tries to wear off, the rubber is getting "scrubbed off".
Not rotating the tires will cause the outside of the front tires to wear out before any other part of any tire.
Then, there is the matter of worn "front end" parts.
The parts that wear most often and quickest are the tire rod ends. Next are the ball joints, and last are the shocks/struts.
When a car has about 100,000 miles, these parts begin to show their wear by causing bad tire wear.
Someone needs to check your car most carefully to see if any of these parts are causing your problem.
After all the worn parts are replaced, the last thing is the "front end alignment".
As you drive mile after mile, you occasionally hit bumps.
Although these bumps do not show up quickly, the bumps will, over time, cause the tires to become a little crooked, and about once every 3-6 years, the front end needs to be aligned, or have the tires straightened.
Be blessed.

I have a 2000 dodge dakota 4 wheel drive . recently i have noticed the shaft coming out of the front axle on the drivers side has play and making the tire wear weird . i noticed the seal is shot on that...


i am not sure just what shaft you are talking about,i think you mean the outer tie rod end and the seal you mean is the dust boot on the tie rod end, when you buy a new end it will come with a new boot. but if you mean the front axle shaft it should not cause the tire to wear funny it might cause some noise or a shake but not a wear problem.

I Had the tires rotated on my 2008 mazda cx9 at 13,000 miles in our local shop here,then i noticed a humming sound coming from front of vehicle and only when it approaches 50 to 55 mph,could it possibly be...


The noise is most likely caused by the different wear pattern on the tire that came from the rear of the car. The difference in the alignment between the front and rear suspension systems causes the tires to wear accordingly. It will take some time for the tires to wear in to their new environment. The noise should go away gradually. You should also check your tire pressure to make sure you don't have an improperly inflated tire.

How often should I get my tires rotated? balanced? aligned?


You should rotate your tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles or when you notice uneven tread wear.You should balance your tires when you buy new ones or see uneven tread wear.You should align your car when you know you hit a pothole,feel vibration.If you are unsure you should ask a certified mechanic.

Why does my car starts to shake after 65mph


This problem is normally caused by one of two things, either an out of alignment front end or a bad, unbalanced, or underinflated tire. A out of aligned front end will normally cause uneven wear on your tires, check for uneven wear and for any noticable cracks on the tires, then take to a alignment/tire shop and request a FREE quote to repair.

Tire wear in middle of both rear tires


problem is with over inflating the tires,causing middle tread wear,as long as you have more the 3/32 tread wear in the middle than you are ok.always set tire pressure when cold at around 33psi,check tire inflation sticker on dar jam for exact tire pressure

Rear tire wear


Sounds like your alignment is out, take it and get it balanced, If not that then something has broken in the rear end causing your tire to wear wrong

Car shakes at highspeed, wears inside of tires


Sounds like its either your "camber angle" or your tires aren't balanced correctly
