It is an alignment problem caused by you raising the vehicle 2" Have the toe in adjusted to positive and have the camber reset to positive as well. As you raise the vehicle you shorten the tie rod end making the tyres point out and the tyres will also lean more out at the top causing the tyres to scrub on the outsides. Unfortunately because you have run the tyres in this condition they will continue to wear in the same pattern after an alignment so you will be up for 2 new tyres. to fix the problem properly

What do i do to lower front end? There is way to much space between the tires and wheel wells.


don't go on looks but instead measure the height from the road to the door sills at the front and rear of the car
that will show if the car is actually up at the front
IT could appear high because of smaller diameter wheels fitted to the front increases the guard to wheel clearance in opposite to bigger wheels make the car look lowered as it reduces the clearance
having decided that the wheels are the same all round and the car is actually high at the front, the fix is best carried out by an accredited suspension specialist shop as it may be faulty installation or incorrect parts used previously

Figure out why my car is wearing the outside of my tires . ihave to put new ones every 6 months


Too much toe in adjustment. The tires are pointed toward the center, I use an expandable retractable tent pole, with normal weight on the tires I check as high as possible without obstruction against the rim evenly front and back same distance from the ground and try to get as close to zero as possible. When there is the same amount of resistance without the length of the pole being changed when held against the rim on one side and brushed across the rim on the other end of the pole first checking the front of the front rim from side to side then the back of the front rim side to side you should see a great improvement in tire life if you have to lean one way or the other slight toe in is better than toe out. I try for zero running radial tires. Keep the pole level and straight as possible.
This should be done with the tires pointed as close to straight line forward as possible while the entire weight of the vehicle rests on the tires. I like to sight down the sidewall of the tire from the front of the vehicle looking toward the rear axle to determine if the tires are pointing straight. I measure adjustment against the rim to avoid differences in tire lettering. There are more ways to do this measuring but this is the only way to do it one manned that I know of without an alignment rack. The rim should be very true running when spinning on the spindle but even a bent rim can cause this method to be inaccurate. If a bent rim is all you have then you must just pick one spot on the rims and then rotate it to the front measure then to the rear then measure.

One of my tires is straight and the other one is pointed outwards. the steering wheel is sideways as like im turning


The easiest way to do this is straighten the steering wheel first Brandon. Next is to walk to the back of the truck and eye ball the left front tire from a looking from the side of the back tire. If that one is straight ahead before or after you adjust it, Now check the passenger side the same way.When both look straight, now take a tape measure and measure the distance from the center tread on the right front tire to the center of the left front tire.Say its 61", now do the same behind the front tires. It might say 58". You want to end up with the front measurement being 1/4 of an inch smaller then the back.

Tie rods on front wheels need replacing, also need 2 new front tires. Can I have the front tires installed and then put the new tie rods on at home?


Depends on how far your drive is to home, if the tie rods are that bad to make the tires wear then i would only drive it a short distance. Tie rods control inward and outward positions of tire if looking at front of vehicle called (Toe) . When driving strat and a tie rod is damaged or defective and tires ares point in or out all your doing is dragging the tire down the road.

Nick, I did have a rod kit put in my 2008 Chev. Impala. The service guy just looked at it and said that was the problem. Wear on the inside of the tires.


When ever front end work is done, front end needs to be realign, the wear your getting is call toe wear, mean tire's are pointing out, and will wear tire's on inside edge, have it realign and that will take care of your tire wear problem.

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.
