Just one tire or both? Likely you need an alignment done, but other things can cause tire balding and cupping. Brakes pulling to one side or other can also cause tires to wear prematurely and unevenly. Worn Shocks/Struts are also culprits. Worn or broken bushings in the suspension. Also, bearings starting to seize up can cause this as well. In other words, a BUNCH of things can cause the problem. If you have no issues with steering, handling, braking, it is likley just a simple alignment is needed. Take it in to a reputable place and they can diagnose the exact cause and suggest repair needed. Good luck.

What would cause my tire problem?


Tyres cause vibrations from several reasons I --out of balance== have the tyres rebalanced 2 --tread/. belt separation inside the tread ( most noticeable on the rear end as a sideways movement like a duck walking and the tail feathers move from side to side)=== maker fault 3 --running under inflated =destruction of inside walls causing unbalance 4-- wheel alignment==castor wobble 5 side bulges in the side walls == from hitting gutters or stones or pot holes Start with the balance as a lot of the faults will be apparent on the balancer.

Tire wear 2011 hyundai elantra


take the car to a suspension specialist shop and have the rear wheels aligned first
have the suspension checked for worn mounts or bad springs
it is very important that the rear end is aligned before the front end
suspect that the suspension rubbers need replacing as it is over 6 years old
the tyre rotation is a myth perpetrated on drivers to sell tyres
when the tyre construction was cross-ply and not radials yes rotation then on cross-ply tyres could get the wear to even out but with radials once the wear is started then the tyre continually wears in that pattern regardless of which wheel it is on
even if you take that tyre of the car and put it on a trailer , it will still continue to wear in that pattern
tyres are no longer rotated but simply put front to back on the same side other wise the belts flex in a new direction in the tread and fail earlier that expected
besides that fact that tyre rotation will not allow you to monitor for suspension problems or wheel alignment problems and cost you 4 tyres at a time instead of two

What could be causeing my 1993 jeep grand cherokee 4wheel drive to be makeing my tires lean out and when the roads are wet its hard to keep it on the road it feels like I'm slideing all over the place...


It appears the you have a problem in either the connecting rod between the tyres . If that is bent then the tyres will be facing out and steering will be difficult. An indication of this will be excessive tyre wear on the inside of the tread. Best have a wheel alignment check done as you have a serious safety fault

1990 oldsmobile delta 88 royale brougham. When The engine is running you can hardly hear it. It runs great, and sounds good... Until you start driving at higher speeds. It starts around 20 kmh and will...


could be ball joint but I suspect that the problem is wheel alignment from a failing wheel bearing
inside tyre wear indicates toe out problem, wheel with negative camber or a steel belt moving problem under the tread
best take it to an accredited front end specialist shop for a proper diagnosis and quote

My 97 jeep cherokee front drivers wheel staggers when at speeds of 45 to50. but it stops around the speed of 60


hi there ,this is a tyre problem we in the business call an "out of round tyre" to find which tyre it is so you can replace it ,go to each wheel and feel around the tread part of each tyre with your bare hand laying flat on the tread and feel right around each tyre ,you will find the problem tyre quite fast using this method as you will feel a raised bit on the bad tyre thats making your steering wheel shake ,a reputable tyre shop could do this for you if you dont feel capable ,then have the tyre replaced and ask them to balance all your wheels in the processand THANK YOU for using FixYa !!!

Severe tire wear within the last 6 months. I'm looking at getting the front end aligned, but I'm sure it needs shocks or struts. I don't wanna sound stupid, which does it have or does it have both??


if you look under the wheelarch,above the front wheel,if you can see a strut surrounded by a spring,then you have both.(the damper is inside the strut)(ive put it this way so you can see for yourself.)NOW tyre wear,if your shockers have gone the wear pattern will be flat across the tyre tread/no tread/tread/no tread,and you will feel like you have square wheels.
to check shockers, push hard down on one corner,the car should bounce up,then down,then settle at its original height.no more.

Is it normal for my tires to hum in my 2007 impreza wagon? sounds like i have a rice burner sometimes, but only from the cockpit!


If they are all terain or off road tyre's then it's normal if it has road tyre's then it would be best to get it checked wheel bearings and brakes.

1998 olds aurora wears out inside of front tires


Unless there is noise or play when cornering sharply at low speeds (parking), the CV joint / boot is still ok. The joint does need grease in there and the rubber boot fitted properly very soon.

As the suspension is set, the axle does little more than provide drive. It doesn't affect toe-in or camber angle.

Camber angle (vertical tilt inwards) is a product of the suspension design, and often cannot be altered.

Weak front springs can also throw this angle out, as the vehicle sits too low.

Toe-in (forward point angle) can and must be set accurately, or you will skid about in wet weather depending which tyre grips more.

What is most important to you, is the tyre design, tread width and outer radius. Also the tyre pressures MUST be mid limit when cold on the front - otherwise excess wear will result.

Having tyres with a large contact area that are too rigid on the front will increase wear to the insides.

Also, it is good practice to rotate the tyres to even-out wear. Usually front tyres move to rear axle, and rears swap sides to front axle. If wear is uneven, pop them off and turn around before refitting. Some tyres you cannot do this with.

If you choose a tyre with a harder tread compound, or ones with "C" at the end of the code, these will again last a lot longer.

Thanks for using Fixya!. If this provides an answer for you, please rate as such. Thanks.
