SOURCE: Tires wearing inside on 2008 Impala LT

You most likely have an alignment problem. If BOTH FRONT TIRES are worn the same ( inside edge worn ), that would indicate a TOE- OUT problem such as ( \ / ) . Picture those 2 lines as your front tires going down the road . Hope this helps.

SOURCE: rods in rear are bent causing tires to wear

do you mean the tie rods or are you just looking there and see a part that looks bent? if both tires are wearing uneven, it could be just a rear wheel alignment that you need. did you just buy this car? it's possible something under the car is bent from a previous accident, but if you had this car for awhile and this problem just began then it may be just an alignment........good luck..p.s......if both tires are wearing uneven then it's unlikely a" rod "is bent , there would have to be a " rod " bent on both sides which is too coincidental.

1999 silverado rear end shakes at all speeds. put brand new tires n balanced


You should have an alignment on all 4 wheels. Check that the rear axle has not shifted forward or backward on one side. If you have Rear Disc Brakes, have the Hub & Rotor checked for alignment. Does this shaking happen all of the time or just when turning? Does it only happen when you apply the brakes? A Rotor and Hub that is out of alignment will cause shaking. Also check that the Caliper Slide Bolts are lubricated, otherwise the caliper will not operate correctly and the inside of the rotor will wear out faster. This can cause shaking also.

Car tires wobble at low speeds


Rim may have a dent or a weel balance weight may have fallen off.

Have the balance checked before your tires develop abnormal wear.
