You know why

There is plenty on the internet to learn
about tire wear

You need a complete rebuild or restoration of the front end

Piece mealing one part at a time over 24 years won't help much,
on a 1990 vehicle

That is the kind of job you need to do yourself.

SOURCE: front tires are leaning in

You probably need ball joints, unless you have large aftermarket tires which means you only need an alignment.

google TSB 03-13-5 (addresses concerns over excessive inner-tire wear on wheels mounted in the rear.), then contact your dealer again.

SOURCE: tire wear on 1996 ford explorer xlt awd

The tire itself does not have the proper inflation pressure for the vehicle. The tire has a MAXIMUM pressure on it. The proper pressure is on a sticker or tag, probably on the door jamb inside the driver's door. You might also find the tag inside the glove compartment or in the engine compartment near the emissions sticker.

SOURCE: rear tire wear

This truck has a live rear axle, meaning there is nothing to adjust back there. Have you hit somthing? The wear being on the outside of the tire would indicate that the tire is pointing in to the center of the vehicle. Sight down each of the rear tires to the front tires and see if it appears tif the rear axle is skewed to one side. Possibley bad locating arm busings or somthing bent.

Good Luck

SOURCE: FRONT END SQWEAL AND MAKES NOISES

Yep....agreed. Ball joints are bad....if you had done maintenance on the front end steering or suspension system, you need a front end alignment. But, you definitely have issues with the suspension system.

Tierod, ball joints, struts....could be a lot of things.

Let us know what has been done to the front end.

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.

Front tires wearing faster than should.


uneven wear- on one side of each tire- need front end alignment.
wearing in center- over inflated tires.

If they seem to wear evenly but quicker than they should, rotate with the rear so they all wear at same time.

Front end alinement plus toe and camber has been checked car tracks fine BUT outside edge of tires are wearing


outside edge will wear on passenger side --- power steering causes this ,but if both tyres are wearing then have it tracked with a good old fashioned type tracking bar ,these laser things are only as good as the operator ,if it shows up as parallel then you could have worn bushes on the track control arm,is this vehicle subject to a annual vehicle mechanical inspection like in europe or just an emmisions test american style

The front tires wear rather quikly . possible something wrong with sepension


  • If you wear either the inside or outside of the tire which could mean your camber setting is off and alignment is needed.
  • If you have uneven tire wear in one direction (place hand over tire thread and run it forward direction, feeling for serrated sensation similar to a saw tooth) would relate to a worn shock absorber.
  • Consistent wear on the middle part of the tire means you are over inflating your tire. Adjust pressure with a cold tire and use a quality gauge.
  • Consistent wear at the inside and outside part of your thread means you are under inflating your tire.
  • Uneven cupping around the tire means a suspension component is worn. Check all rubber bushings for condition and ball joints for play.

The front passenger tire is wearing vairy hard on the outside tread. Also when I'm turning the vehicle I can hear some grinding and squeaking coming from that side of the axel.


Sounds like tracking does the other tyre have the same problem?

It could also be the bush or trackrod end it is possible that your rubber boot has split and has no more grease inside and you can hear metal against metal.

Its time to take it in tracking first then check the CV joint and all the rubbers for wear if so they need replacing

My front tires are showing wear, and they toe out when in reverse


Be sure to have tires rotated every 5000-6000-miles. Walmart is good for that.
Outside wear is normal for fronts from the turns at higher speeds.
When tierod ends were replaced it is advisable to get front end aligned. Its not impossible to replace with minimum change but if settings were done with worn parts, new parts will change it.

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.

Tires wearing inside on 2008 Impala LT


this is a wheel camber (in and out tilt of wheel and tire) problem, u may have to have a Camber adjustment kit put in, most new cars have no adjustment provided for this. the bottom line here is you need to see a really good front end shop to get this taken care of, also the tires will continue to wear this way even if problem is corrected, so may want to replace them or rotate them.

Rear tire wear


Sounds like your alignment is out, take it and get it balanced, If not that then something has broken in the rear end causing your tire to wear wrong
