2008 Impala wearing rear tires poorly. I understand this is due to not being able to perform canber adjustment due to type of struts used. Is this correct and can this be solved?

Check your rear suspension very carefully, something may be bent. all adjustments should be able to be made otherwise GM would not publish alignment specs

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.

Hi I have a 2008 chevy Imple all four of the trieres have worn out on the inside and the left rear tire is worn down to the threads on the in side the mileage on the car is 57000

i would susppect a Alignment problem or even a worn out suspension part, i would start with new tires as you need them regardless and get an alignment, most of the tire wear is due to LACK of tire rotations and alignment checks. Start with that 1st , get new tires and an alignment check.

Uneven tire wear , tires are shot after only 25000 mi

Have your alignment checked and your tired balanced. Make sure your hub bearings are not shot. Also have your struts checked.

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.

Tire shop says tire wear is due to bad rear struts

you need to replace only the shock cartridges.  Also have the tires rebalanced.
When you receive advice from this website you have to understand that without the item in front of us, we are only able to provide "a best guess" as to what the problem might be based on you description of the defect.  If you haven't described a clear and precise description of the defect you decrease the chances of an accurate reply.  Thank you.
