You should get it to a front end shop, automotive shop or to a mechanic because it could be the front end wearing out badly.

SOURCE: tire leaned in on top

It sounds like either you had a balljoint fail or your alignment/steering has had a serious failure.... did you hit or run over something before the problem?

The other possibility is a broken tie-rod end. Normally, this would not result in the wheel leaning on top- it would be sideways.

Either way, DO NOT DRIVE IT! this is SERIOUS and needs to be fixed ASAP! You can LOSE CONTROL without ANY WARNING!

This is a job for a trained mechanic and please...I beg you...get it TOWED and dont try and drive it!!!

Good Luck!

SOURCE: Why does my front passenger tire lean outwards at

The most common problem would be a bad lower ball joint. It could also be bad control arm bushings or a combination of the two. Neither is an expensive repair. This should be checked out and repaired soon as it could cause control issues. Hope this helps.

What is causing my right front tire to lean inwards at the top


Usually if the tire is leaning noticeably, it's a bad ball joint or radial arm bushing.

Front passenger wheel leaning on 98 expedition


This is most likely a ball joint problem. If you can, jack that tire up in the air and see if you can move the whole tire in and out from the top. Try to see if there is movement in the ball joints while you move the tire. If that is not the problem, it could be a wheel bearing, but i would check the ball joints first. Hope this helps.

Tire pressure light comes on when tires are okay. Can I reset something myself so it doesn't?


You are right, the pressure sensors can be affected by temperature. If its below 10 Degrees there is a chance they will malfunction, I had a similar problem on my Jeep Wrangler and it required a heated garage for an immediate rectification. Alternatively, some tire shops have a computer which can communicate with the tire pressure sensors and reset the sensors once they determine that the correct air pressure has been applied to the tire.

Front tires lean in on my Lincoln cartier


You need a front end shop to inspect the front end, do not drive this until the problem is repaired.

Abs light come on and 4wd light flashes


check your front wheel bearings by jacking up the front end of your vehicle and trying to wiggle the tire at the top and bottom of the tire. If the tire seems to be jiggling a little bit at the hub; not the suspension or steering, your wheel bearing needs to be replaced. If it gets really bad you can actually see the wheel inverted or the top of the tire leaning towards the inside from the front of the vehicle.

when your wheel bearings go the sensor in the bearing goes off and the abs light comes on.

Good Luck

Front tires are leaning in at the top and out at the bottom causing major tire wear


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