Rear Tires: Balding

I have 4 tires on my car that are about a year old; the front tires look fantastic--the rear ones are almost bald now. I'm off to get new tires, but want to know what could be causing this so I can fix it and prevent my NEW rear tires from balding? Thanks!

If it has independent rear suspension then have the suspension rubbers checked and replace if necessary. Next for all wheel alignments it is essential that the rear end is aligned first to stop this tyre wear before the front wheels are aligned . IF you have leaf springs at the rear check for axle alignment and broken centre bolts or worn rubbers at the centre bolt mounts.

SOURCE: had fuel pump replaced two months ago i noticed

No it doesn't, but something happened to your rear end. It must have too much weight in the trunk, or the bolts have come loose and let the rear end slip down, I know they can be brought back up, there are shims that slide in and out to get it aligned, but usually, they stay put because of the weight difference, I would take it to a different garage and have them look at it and make sure nobody messed with it. Then get it shimmed back up. A lot of cars come off the line like that, VW's, BMW's, How would like to pay $30,000 for a car with the rear wheels leaning in at the top? I wouldn't. Check it out, Hope this helps.

President club car golf cart front tires wear out every 3 months.


Maybe your front end alignment is off?
Measure the distance across the front of the front wheels and across the rear of the front wheels.
On this cart the measurements should be almost exactly the same.
Measure carefully as the measurement needs to be exact.
If the measurements are not the same,adjust one or both tierods to make the distance between the front and rear of the front wheels the same.
TIP:AVOID sharp turns on pavement which will also accelerate tire wear.

Firstly, make sure your tires are in good shape, no rounded edges or balding. Secondly, have your tires balanced and checked by a tire shop.

Inside of front tyre going bald


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.

2003 dodge caravan and require two new tires on the rear. Do I plavce the new tires on the front drive axle or on the rear and move the old ones to the front


Front tires tend to wear faster than old ones. It is usually best to put the new tires on the front drive wheels (traction,steering,braking). Then put the older tires on the back.

Have 99 saturn SL2. car pulls left upon hard braking. replaced right front caliper which I thought was bad but didn't solve the problem. upon loosening of brake hose to right caliper, with a light brake...


Assuming that the Tires for both Left and Right are:
1. Equal Sizes.
2. Both Properly Inflated - this is a common problem.
3. Have equal wear on them. Example: If the Left Tire is balding on the outside and the Right Tire is balding on the inside, this too is definite sign of an aligment issue; and will cause unequal braking.
Pulling left (or right) during a hard brake might actual mean your Wheel Alignment is way off. When you get one, get a 4-wheel and not just a 2-wheel alignment.
Also: you thought the right thing, but the Left Caliper or Left Brake Hose might also be bad (sticking) causing the left side to brake "harder" then the right side.
You can also Bleed the entire System (all four wheels) starting at the Right Rear, then Left Rear, then Front Right, followed by the Left Front.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Im getting a noise from the front left side of my van. could it be because of balding or bad tires?


Hi,
No one knows your vehicle sounds, better than you. If you recognize that the sound increases as your speed increases and vice versa... or if there is a bit of a vibration, I would suspect you are correct in that a tire is giving up on you.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

Front end problems


You seem to have more than one problem, first of all the balding tire you have a negative camber problem that can be adjusted by getting a wheel alignment done. The shaking problem while applying brake could mean that you have bad/warped front rotors. It can also mean bad Tie rods. Lastly it can mean that the front tires needs to be high speed balanced. Good Luck

Front tires balding from middle to the inside, and the steering gets real stiff when trying to turn hard. there also is some noise coming from the front end! please help!!


sounds like you have a front suspension issue, there are alot of parts it could be, the first thing I would do is jack the front up to get tires off the ground and shake all the suspension parts really good, they should all be stiff, another option is take it to a shop that does alignments, they will quote you what is wrong and what will fix it :)
