    On the Side of your tires Right up next to the Wheel there is Writing all around the Tire in Black. The Proper inflation is Printed there around the wheel. It will say Proper PSI and give you a Number like 32 or 40. Could be if the Tire is Really Lox But, Seeing as it is wearing on the Inside like you said it is gonna be the Front end Causing the Wear.

The tire itself does not have the proper inflation pressure for the vehicle. The tire has a MAXIMUM pressure on it. The proper pressure is on a sticker or tag, probably on the door jamb inside the driver's door. You might also find the tag inside the glove compartment or in the engine compartment near the emissions sticker.

What causes front tire wear on inside & outside edges


Under inflation. When the tire doesn't have enough air pressure, the center tends to be pushed up from the road. Thus causing outer wear on both sides. alignment problems cause wear on one side or the other. Over inflation causes the center of the tire to wear .

If it is happening at full stop ( the wheel turned all the way as far as it can go) then it is likely a lubrication issue on the steering stops. It is a good idea to not use the steering stops often for reasons like this as well as excess wear on those parts. If this issue is not happening at full stop then it could be many things but another option seeing what you have described is the incorrect tire size. This could cause the tire edge to rub while deep turning causing the issue you describe.

Yes a worn out or broken shock will cause tire wear. But most likely you have a suspension problem. Need to check for play in upper & lower ball joints & inner & outer tirods.

There is a roaring in the left front tire area. I think it is the wheel bearing?


Swap tires & see if it's stays or goes. Then have bearing checked if your not sure what it should exactly sound like. Does it change sound when turning?

Loud squeaking when front end moves up and down,have replaced shocks and no help,can not narrow down where sound is coming from,any ideas?


You have control arms on both sides bolted to the frame . They pivot on rubber bushings.
Buy a can of spray silicone and soak the bushings.Bounce the truck up and down then spray the rubber bushings again.Do not get the spray on any thing else. Wear safety glasses and dont breath the spray.

Tire wear


does the car make noise from the rear when you go at a high speed. If it does it may be your bearings. I had my bearing wear out on me at 15000 miles.
