Very uneven tyre wear - wearing on both inside front tyres


Uneven tyre wear is caused by either worn bushes or incorrect tracking.

It sounds as though your car is 'toe in' and needs the wheels tracking - aligning. Take it to a tyre fitting bay - it doesn't cost much to have it checked/rectified.

97 Cadillac Delegance Front end noise , dissapears when going into right hand turn then returns when straightening out. Tires recently rotated and balanced , tire that was on right front had wear pattern...


I would be checking out the wheel bearings for the problem. I would also be checking the front suspension for worn ball joints and steering end joints. Tyre wear patterns indicate unbalance-wheel alignment-shock absorbers and front end wear. I refuse to rotate tyres for several reasons Radial tyres when developing a wear pattern will retain that wear pattern even if placed on a trailer--Wear patterns show a fault for that wheel and tells which wheel and what needs to be done to repair it and lastly tyres wear in pairs so if you have a front wheel drive car why replace 4 tyres when the need is to replace only 2 front ones. Saves about 50% of the cost of tyres. The rotation theory came about from cross ply tyres and does not apply to radials except for tyre dealers profits

Rear wheel adjustment on maximum on rover 75 any suggestions?


All adjustment should sit at about middle the adjustment range. If you are at full adjustment and still wearing out tyres I would be looking for very worn bushes in the suspension rods and bars. Check that one hasn't been bent ( used as a jack point instead of the body or axle). When having a wheel alignment done a good shop always sets the rear end first as it has a significent bearing on the front settings.

I have a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis with alignment problems causing tire wear. I had it realigned in the fall last year 2011 and months ago it's been steering to the left again... Just had it real


In the UK we would say 'have the car tracked' .. the wheel alignment checked and adjusted, which is a relatively straightforward and easy job.

However, be aware that there are other causes of tyre wear which isn't rectified by having the wheels aligned.

A bent or damaged steering arm can cause tyre wear. I once owned an old Mercedes that quickly wore one front tyre. Despite having the wheels tracked - aligned - three times, the tyre still wore. It wasn't until I looked under the car myself and found a damaged steering arm ...

A worn ball joint or worn/soft rubber bush can cause tyre wear. Having the wheels aligned cures nothing without first identifying the fault. I own a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee which, I am aware, has worn rubber bushes in the front steering/suspension set up. The front tyres wear badly, caused by the worn bushes. The tyres need replacing soon anyway, but I'll wait to get the tracking-alignment- done until after I've replaced the rubber bushes/tyres.

You've had wheel alignment done a couple of times and the problem of worn tyres is still there. It's not the wheel alignment at fault .. there's some other reason such as worn ball joint/rubber bushes or maybe impact damage to a steering arm.

The best option is to get a workshop to put the car up on a hoist for inspection. Tell them that wheel alignment ISN'T the cause of your uneven tyre wear. Any half-decent workshop should be able to find the cause within a few minutes.

A car which has suffered severe side impact - and has been repaired - can have a twisted/misaligned body. This too can cause uneven tyre wear

Squeeky brakes and tire maitanence light on. I only have 32000 miles on my 2009 murano.


first check your discs and pads to see if pads are worn down or there are any score marks on the disks, also the metal antivibration shims in front of the brake pads for wear and tear.check tyres for wear wrong tyre preasures/unballanced, and steering problems can cause exesive wear on tyres.

2004 mitsubishi outander rear wheels tilting - extreme tyre wear.


Yes there is adjustment. You need to get the alignment checked out. It could be worn bushes and/or damage to the suspension linkages and struts.

Im stationed overseas and my grandmother has a 2003 santa fe 6cyl. she is getting bad tire wear. could this just be a front end alignment and how much should it cost to repair


Brad

1. It's hard to say without looking at the vehicle (and test driving it) but more than likely the front end is badly out of alignment. ( If the car has been in a significant front end accident and badly repaired then this could also be a source of the problem as the alignment may not be capable of being properly set).

2. The first thing to do is take the car to a specialist suspension and steering shop and have the wheel alignment checked and adjusted to factory specs. Normally this is not expensive for a straight forward alignment but price depends on the shop. A good suspension shop will also identify if there are any wear problems with the steering or suspension that need attention

3. Older drivers sometimes frequently hit kerbs when parking their cars. This will throw out the front wheel alignment every time (and damage tyres) so it must always be avoided. Scrubbed.scuffed tyre side walls are an indication of this as well as scratched wheel rim edges.

4. Some drivers never check tyre pressures. Low tyre pressures will cause much greater tyre wear as there is more friction. (It will also make steering heavier, place undue stress on the steering components, cause the car to handle badly and result in much higher fuel consumption).
The lady needs to ensure her car has at least 32 lbs pressure in both front tyres and at least 30lbs in the rear (which carries less weight). The pressures must be set with COLD tyres. Manufacturer optimum spec tyre pressures are usually set for comfort. These can be safely exceeded by a few pounds. It is far safer (and more economical) to run slightly higher pressures than a setting that is too low. (A good tyre will run all day with 38-40 pounds pressure and 36-38 is quite safe).

5. Worn out shock absorbers will also contribute to abnormal tyre wear. 70000 miles of average driving will see out a set of shocks. (Personally I would not leave them that long as the factory shocks are generally of average quality on this type of car)..

That's the best I can do Brad without seeing the car so I hope this helps some. Hopefully a good wheel alignment will fix the problem but make sure the tyre pressures are kept up as well. If the shocks are worn out they will also need to be replaced if the car is to be roadworthy.

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.
