You need to have a four wheel alignment done. Keep in mind once the tires start to wear like you have they will continue to wear that way even after the align is done.

SOURCE: 2002 E320. Premature tire wear on right rear wheel.

THese cars have a high speed rated tire and will almost always wear quickly. The right rear is the drive wheel (where the power goes when you give it gas) It will wear real quickly if you drive it hard. I would try rotating every 7500 miles (unless tire sizes are different as with the SL series) I sell a lot of tires on these cars and 25K is usually the limit.

SOURCE: '03 Merc Mountaineer humming noise when turning

If same tires as before & air pressure set correctly, or as usual, a humming when swerving, or turning one way or the other or both, it's usually a pretty good indicator.

My 2005 Nissan altima sounds like it has wide tires when I'm driving, from the rear end.whats the problem?


Could be a bad wheel bearing if it's a roaring noise. Or possibly a tire noise due to uneven wear

1999 rav4 rumbling rubbing noise and feel when cranking wheel in reverse


A couple points here:
it is probably just the tire rubbing on the inside of a wheel well. Have a tire shop or mechanic check for wear of suspension components. Excessive wear on suspension arm bushings, ball joints, struts, etc. could cause "slop" or excessive travel forward and back which is not normal.
Itis also good practice to NEVER turn to steering all the way to the stops in any four or all-wheel drive vehicle.

It's likely the tires. The Bridgestone Turanza OEM tires were specially designed to reduce road noise, which can be an issue. If you're running a different brand of tire, then that may be the cause. Also, if one of the rear tires has an issue (e.g. uneven wear), that may also be the cause. Possible causes of uneven wear include worn rear struts, infrequent rotation, bent wheel, or wheel/tire out of balance. Wheels/tires need to be rebalanced occasionally - at least every 20k miles.

Vibration at 60mph


Hi vibration at 60 is normally wheel balance not the alaignment, get the 2 front wheels weighted and balanced, if they are wearing unevenly then it could be suspension bushes,track rod ends.

But most likely the wheels just need balancing only cost about $20 to 30 max

Hope this helps

2000 Cougar with rumbling noise.


There are several places to look. If it is a lower pitch vibration, look into front wheel bearings and rear axle bearings. A bad u-joint will produce a higher pitched vibration and may lessen as you lift the throttle. They also will give a hi-low squeak when backing up.

Uneven tire wearing in rear. new shocks or springs?


There are a multitude of ways a tire will wear unevenly and they all have unique causes. You can take it to a good tire shop and they will be able to diagnose what your specific problem and solution are.

Front end wobble


An easily overlooked problem that can have these symptoms is low tire pressure. Examine your tire for excessive wear or a flat spot. Check your tire pressures. If all this seems fine, rotate your tires to see if that helps the problem. If so, replace the suspect tire.

Uneven wear on rear tires..


the front end will need alignment kits installed that allow for the adjustment to be made to correct the tire wear, this has to be done on a alignment machine to set correctly, just eye balling it is not an option.
