Have an alignment done, they will advise you as to what, if anything is worn bad enough to be replaced, like maybe springs/struts.

I dont know if you have solved this yet but check the bushings on the suspension or the arms. If one is worn or damaged it will cause the tire to bend outward or inward and cause the tires to wear uneven.

I replaced the tires on my 2003 mitsubishi eclipse 2 months ago & the front two have worn to the wires on both sides. a week ago there was still some tread on them. why could this be happening?


1. What brand and model of tire was fitted?

2. Please describe the wear pattern on the front tires in more detail. For example is the excessive tread wear.....
A. Right across the face of the tread on each tire or
B. On the outside edges of the tread on each tire or
C. on the inside edges of the tread on each tire or
D. on both sides of the tread but not on the center section of the tread on both tires.
-----------------------------------------------------
B is normally caused by incorrect toe setting - toe in
C is also normally caused by incorrect toe setting - toe out
D is normally caused by tire pressure set way too low.

Faulty steering and suspension components can also cause abnormal tire wear for any component that affects the wheel alignment settings.
------------------------------------------------------------------
If you can provide a better description of the tire wear on each front tire you will get a better answer.

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 .

Mitsubishi Endeavor 2004 making roaring noise in rear


It just may be the tires. Tire cupping will make a roaring noise. You can check for this with your palm. Run you hand over the tread of the tire while parked. Look and feel for cups or scalloped dips appearing around the edge of the tread on one side or the other.

I'm being told I need to have the rear cambers replaced during my alignment because they are off by some measurement and this is causing my rear tires to cup.


Cupping is usually caused by faulty shock or struts. Camber that is out of specification will cause uneven wear from inside to outside of tire. The shop should supply you with a printout of where your measurements are currently and what they should be. Can you send a good picture of the tires tread?

Uneven cupping or wear on the inside of front tires.I believe its toe setting. you set the toe on 2006 trail blazer 4/4 (HOW) ?raje


Cupping and uneven wear are for two different reasons. Cupping is caused by either an unbalanced tire/rim or bad shock. Uneven wear can be an alignment issue. I don't know how to set the toe in.

My front tires are cupped almost bald on the inside and outside. almost all tread left in the center


under inflation is the first thing that come to my mind and lack of rotation and possibly shocks or struts that are shot. If your tires are worn down only in the center its usually overinflation.

Flat spots on tire


This could be one of three things , either you have an alignment issue , bad suspension parts or just the lack of tire rotation. If the flat spots are at an angle from outside edge to inside edge then the problem is with your rear struts. If the flat spots are either on the out side edge or inside edge then the you have an alignment issue. If the flat spot are consistent all around the tire then you have a tire balance issue or bad rear struts.

Premature tire failure on 2007 Lexus GX 470


I don't know what 'cupping' is. If you mean wear, then it is probably down to having incorrect tracking set on the car. Go to a garage and get the toe out checked. If your tracking is out, you will wear the edge of the tyres. Over inflation will cause the centre of the tyre to wear, and under inflation will cause the outer and inner band of the tread to wear.
The vibration may be caused by the loss of wheel weights. Maybe knocked off by hitting a kerb which also may be the cause of the tracking being out. Driving over a deep pot hole in the road can have the same effect.

Hi, I have had a problem with my 05 Santa fe, for a few years now. It concerns the brakes. I had it in 2 wks ago for a servicing and alienment and balancing. I NOW have a tire that has scalloped , on the...


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.
