Question about 1995 Geo Tracker
We bought a 1995 geo tracker to pull behind a motorhome, it is a 5 speed automatic 4x4, when we were looking at it we noticed the right front tire was wore unevenly but just thought it needed an allignment, it came with an attached roadmaster 118-1 towbar brackets and a stowmaster 5000 towbar so we hooked it up to our chevy pickup and pulled it about 100 miles to our house, we did what the seller told us to do...put transmission in neutral, 4x4 in neutral and turn the igintion key on so the sterring whell was free......when we got home the left front tire was really wore down and it looked like a new tire before, really tore up.....we pulled it around our yard and the tires jump and hop and do not steer straight like they are really fighting the car.....we do not know what to do and are worried that the seller did not know how to pull it himself and tore somthing up before we bought it....i have been trying to research this but it is so confusing....the car drives great and handles good when we are driving it...but acts weird when towed and at this rate i cannot afford the tires it chews up....can you help me ????
Wow, you have a 4wd car and dont know how to service it.!
first before you tow any old 95 car around,
you need to be sure
the locking hubs are free, if autolocks ,trash them they are no good for this usage. manual hubs set to FREE position.
they must not be corroded and must unlock.
the wheel bearings must not be ignored, get them greased.
they do come out , ignore idiots who post here and say other wise.
it takes a special tool to remove the bearing locking nut rings.
next make darn sure the brakes are not dragging.
last a dead strut can make a wheel bounce. so check them too.
here is an owners manual, suzuki will give you one for free any time you ask (safety rules )
please read all of chapter 8, towing. gee my gosh.\
5 ways to tow, not sure yours. only you know. see the book.
i guess you are method B and as you stated , you had it wrong.
tranny is PARKED, Xfr case in N.
and that is a 4speed not 5.
ok that is all the issues, in one post , hope i landed on yours so we can all be safe on the road.

Maybe your motor home exceeds the trackers towing capacity and it wears down the tires? Just a suggestion- I'm no mechanic
