Preventing tire wear is about regular maintainence to your vehicle.
You should rotate your tires every 5,000 miles , and keep
your tire pressure at factory pressures as indicated by the tag
inside the drivers door column.
Alignment is another factor in tire wear , look at your tires carefully .
Look for any unusual wear , especally on the inside of the tires,
as this is usually the most troublesome spot.
As vehicles age , the springs lose their tension to a degree.
This causes a problem in the tire angle called "camber".
The vehicles wheels are tilted inward at the top.
Excessive negative camber will wear the inside of the tire.
Most vehicles can have this corrected by properly aligning
the vehicle .
Another wear problem can be caused by the toe adjustment
being out of specifications .
This is the most destructive angle to tires , it the same angle you use to steer the vehicle left and right .
It normally causes inner and outer tire edges to wear rough in
one direction smooth in another while rubbing your hand around the
tire.
Both these angles can be corrected by a professional alignment .
Be sure the technician inspects your front end for any worn parts,
as aligning it with them is a waste of money and time .
Always ask for a before and after printout of your alignment.

If my alignment is good why do my tires keep eating from the inside


Alignment is the left - right alignment of the front wheel. If you let go of the steering wheel and the car travels in a straight line it is aligned.

Camber however is the tilt of a wheel and its tire on the axle. Ideally the tire should be perpendicular to the road surface (most amount of tire on the road as possible). However if there is a camber on the wheels, in your case it seems there is one inwards, then the alignment may be correct but the vehicle will be running more on the inside of the tires hence your loosing rubber more on the inside.

I hope this helps

2004 GMC Sierra, when backing, if I apply the brake it feels like my left wheel shudders. The left front tire is also wearing on the inside. What part is causng this?


Several things could cause it, from bad wheel bearings to worn ball joints...
Get your alignment checked. While they're doing it, a good shop will tell you if anything needs replacing to keep alignment true. Be sure and tell them about the brakes causing a shudder. It may be related, or your brakes might need attention. Good luck.

Rear wheels toeing in at top wearing inside of tyre


Your car needs a Rear Wheel Alignment, the components need to be inspected/checked for wear and then aligned. Worn ball joints, wheel bearings and so forth can cause bad alignment & tire wear.
Also it's hard to get an accurate alignment once a tire is worn on the inside or outside of the tread.

Had a new tie rod put on inner and outter now the back of the tire needs to come out some to be straight


your tie rods are threaded so if you loosen the clamp on the threaded part, the tube can be turned to move the tire 'toe' in or out. You can align your 'toe' this way by using the inside of the tires like a gunsight-the steering wheel needs to be held or locked 'centered' and you loosen the clamp and rotate the sleeve (or tube) so that each wheel's inside sight, fromnt to back, lines up with the inside of the back wheel (best to be slightly toed-in on rear wheel drive cars and slightly toed-out on front drivers. You can do this by sight but it is best after you get it close to have an alignment done.

I have 2001 seat leon 1.9tdi have noticed recently that when you stand back at a distance you can see that the 2 back wheels are leaning outwards at the bottom of the wheel basically theyre not sitting...


you need to take it to a wheel specialist for wheel alignment.

It entails the precise settings for the setting regarding your wheels.

This inclused "toe in and toe out"
Camber settings etc

a professional does this with laser assisted equipment and a car that has wheel alignment problems consumes more fuel, has less power, handles worse and wears its tyres much faster than a car that has the correct settings.

How can I adjust wheel alignment?


Yes you can using the tie rod adjustments measure the distance between the inside of the tires in the front and the distance between the inside of the tires in the back, makes these distances exact and precise using adjusters assuming you have no other repairs needed n that would hinder the proper alignment.bushing balljoints etc

CAN'T KEEP THE INSIDE OF THE FROT TIRES FROM CUPPING ALIGN GOOD, BALANCE GOOD, NEW TIRES DO THE SAME


Worn shocks can give this problem. You might also check the ball joint and rubber mountings.
