The rear end on my GTP sways from side to side,what could be causing it?

if this is a feeling like the wobble of a ducks rear end as it walks, it will be belt separation of the rear tyre/s ( bridgestone tyres are bad for it after a few years or partially worn tyre)
this is most noticeable at low road speeds
other than that have the rear suspension bushes and mounting bolts checked

Rear passenger tire smoking and very hot

smoking tyres ( unless you are doing burn outs) run very hot and smoke because they have been running flat or well underinflated . This over heats the tyre and the inside breaks down and then tyre is ruined and has to be replaced.. Have the tyre shop check for puncture material.

2003 x-type sport suspension is chewing up inside of rear tires what can i do? already replaced shocks,swaybar links & bushings

Your best bet is to break down and go to a good repair shop for a 4 wheel alignment.Most shops give a flat rate on alignments which means you will pay one price regardless of time it takes.Most modern cars have alignment adlustments on the rear suspension as well as front.Also certain vehicles are very sensitive to tire rotations.Make sure you don't exceed manufactures mile recomendations on rotations.Having it done at the proper times can in some cases double tire life.

Tyre wear

ok have you checked that the tyre pressure is the same on all four wheels or it could be that the rear axel is not being lubricated properly check the bushing.

Tyre wear

When this happens it means that you have a convergence problem. Go to a tyre fitter, mention the problem, and after fitting the tyre ask to perform a balancing and convergence setup on rear wheels, this should fix the problem.

New Rt rear tire losing air slowly...

Hi there!

Yes they should be able to sort it out for you.

Chances are it is not sealing on your rim,

Take it back to them, they will deflate it, paint a compound on the rim areas, then re-inflate it.

If you remove the tyre yourself, and immerse it in water up over the rim, you can mark the area if it bubbles.
You can self-fix by using impact adhesive on the rim - when tyre is fully deflated on this area.
Tyre rubber compounds are soft in this area and should conform to seal within a month or so, but sometimes don't make it.

The other reason is that rust or a crack may be evident.

If this provides a solution, Please spare a moment to rate as Fixya! Thanks.

Tire tread wear high

Hi there!

The tyres you have on there cannot transmit the power you are giving them.

Choose tyres with a softer compound, more contact area, and keep at a lower limit of pressure.

In the meantime, lower the tyre pressures to the low limit when cold, and shift any items you carry over the rear axle to improve traction.

If this is useful to you, pleas spare a moment to rate as Fixya! Thanks.
