Question about 2000 Ford Focus
My back tires wear out really quick I just had the entire rear end replaced a year ago had the wheels lined up and the bearings checked, but a set of tires will only last a few months on the rear of the car. The dealer said that nothing is wrong it is just me putting too many km on the ca, the tires only last 10,000 km.
Usually wear in the center of a a tyre is caused by over inflation. Try reducing the pressure by a few PSI ... no more than 5, then monitor the tyre ear.
Manufactures yre pressures are generalised, so the recommended setting may not be correct of your cae

The Focus' have a bad problem with rear camber. Is it wearing on the inside or the outside of the tire? Not sure if there is a way to fix this as the struts in the rear are not set up for camber adjustments. Make sure you rotate tires every oil change as this will help them last longer. If they are feathering really badly, you have a toe in/out problem which an alignment should help this. Check online for any after market alignment kits for the real as some people like to lower these cars, and there is bound to be a kit for them somewhere.
