It's likely a broken belt in one of your tires. Jack the suspected wheel up and give it a spin. Watch the tread and see if you find a lump on it at some point as it spins. If not try the other ones.

Front tyres bolding on the outside


Cars and trucks are supposed to have their tires rotated every 5,000 miles.
Doing this will only slow the wear on the outside of the tire. Whenever you turn a corner, the weight of the car and the forces of friction will cause the outside of the tries to wear off, the rubber is getting "scrubbed off".
Not rotating the tires will cause the outside of the front tires to wear out before any other part of any tire.
Then, there is the matter of worn "front end" parts.
The parts that wear most often and quickest are the tire rod ends. Next are the ball joints, and last are the shocks/struts.
When a car has about 100,000 miles, these parts begin to show their wear by causing bad tire wear.
Someone needs to check your car most carefully to see if any of these parts are causing your problem.
After all the worn parts are replaced, the last thing is the "front end alignment".
As you drive mile after mile, you occasionally hit bumps.
Although these bumps do not show up quickly, the bumps will, over time, cause the tires to become a little crooked, and about once every 3-6 years, the front end needs to be aligned, or have the tires straightened.
Be blessed.

Tip

Saving Your Tires


The largest vehicle expense short of a catastrophic mechanical failure can be the purchase of tires. After spending anywhere from a few hundred dollars to upwards in the thousands for tires why not protect your investment? Many tire stores offer packages for road hazard situations which usually covers tire repairs and lifetime rotate and balance as well as proration of the tire if tire becomes unrepairable.Ask your tire dealer what their road hazard packages cover? Some tire dealers even offer lifetime alignment or extended alignment service packages.

One of the most common cause for tire failure is improper inflation.Underinflated tires can cause excessive flexing of the sidewall causing the rolling resistance to increase (friction) and can not dissipate heat the way it was intended.This can lead to blow outs or tread separations.Overinflated tires can wear out the center tread and allow to much pressure to build up and cause a tire to blow out. Most vehicles have a placard in a door jam or glove
box that states what manufacturer suggests what the air pressure should be set to.If unable to locate the placard the owners manual contains the same information.This is what the air pressure should be set to.Tires have a maximum pressure printed on the sidewall this is more to advise what the tire can handle not a guideline for inflation.

A long term sign of an under inflated tire is inner and outer edge wear this causes the tire to not roll evenly across the road surface and puts the vehicles weight on the edges of the tire. An overinflated tire will
cause the the center tread of the tire to wear out.

You purchased a tire rated for 60000 miles and it only lasted for 30000? The reason for this is usually due to lack of tire rotation so the drive tires end up wearing out faster then the non drive tires. Proper tire
maintenance is the key to longevity of your tires.Most importantly proper tire pressure.Most manufacturers recommend tire rotations between 5000-7500 following this will maximize the life of your tires.Tire rotation
procedure can vary from a front wheel drive (FWD), rear wheel drive (RWD),all wheel drive (AWD), or four drive (4WD) your owners manual should tell you the best way to have your tire rotated for your vehicle. At one time it was suggested to never cross rotate tires due to damage occurring this is no longer the case. Advancements in tire technology has changed this so cross rotating is now a regular practice. There are some exceptions such as performance rated directional tires designed to only be mounted one way on the vehicle left or right side these can
only be rotated front to back.Some vehicle are now stock with different size front and rear tires so rotating
really is not an option.

After your tire replacement or rotation an alignment is a large a key to tire longevity and avoiding premature tire wear. In a perfect world there are no pot holes in the roads or curbs to hit but we all know that is not reality.These things can easily cause one of the alignment angles to go out of specification drastically reducing tire life. I mentioned earlier that some shops offer a lifetime or an extended alignment service plan this
is definitely a great option depending on what your intentions with the vehicle are.This can save you you a lot of money in the long run.About once a year or every 12000 miles you should have the alignment checked and set if needed even sooner if you commonly are hitting potholes and curbs.

Following these simple rules will allow you to get the maximum mileage from your tires.

depends on how you drive, the car will tell you when you need to change the oil, tire pressure, most tire shops will tell you 5000 miles then rotate tires, remember front to back same side do not change right sides for left sides, as far as trans oil, never, wipers depends on what kind of area you are in.

I own 2009 Impala and just replaced tires at 30,000 miles. I did rotate tires but still had wear on front tires. I had a front end alignment the last time and they told me the camber was off because I must...


Well, the camber which is the vertical angle of the tires or wheels as the car is viewed directly from the front, is adjustable on these cars' struts.

So, if the alignment technician performs a front wheel or even a 4 wheel alignment (which is better), then the front angles should be adjusted so that tire wear doesn't occur on the left or right side of the tire as viewed from the front.

I would continue to rotate tires every 5,000 mi. or so, and have the alignment checked at a place like Sears or your local tire shop to ensure that your alignment is good, and not out of specifications.

When I am going about 60 miles per hour the car doesn't run smooth, feels shakey. My tires were replaced in the front about 6 months ago.


if its just at that speed, have the tires balanced again, and get a front end alignment ,, a single bump on a curb can knock it out of alignment

Alignment in 2007 Acura TL


It depends on what kind of uneven wear you are talking about if the front is wearing on the inside or outside on one side or both yes you need an alignment but if front tires are are worn about the same on the inside and outside of the tire that is not uncommon it is better to rotate the tires about every 5,000-7,000 and keep the air close to maximum as they will get you better gas mileage and wear better example if the tire says a maximum of 44psi put about 38-40psi when tires are cold and havent been ran.If those are the original tires and you have 49,000 on your car then you don't need an alignment.

Once the alignment is good just keep rotating at least every 6,000 miles. Aggressive tread designs on these cars have to be pampered or you will get the feathering

Persistent Wheel Alignment Problem


Hard to tell here without seeing some kinda specs from your alignments. There were some issues on rear tire wear on these. It was mainly inner wear on rear tires and the rear camber specs were beyond the negative end of the specifications(max -2.3). They had a revised +1.0 degree upper control arm to address that. If you are not feeling any rebound in the travel you could have a worn or damaged strut,with this many miles that is certainly a possibility.

once a were pattern is worn in tire s unless you rotate tires to the rear they will keep wearing you should rotate your tires every oil change especially if you do alot of around town driving i am willing to bet you that good year lied to you about the alignment i am sure the dealer put it into spec the first time you just need to rotate them a little more often
