    Can't answer that without seeing it. Have a competent alignment shop look it over.

What causes front tire wear on inside & outside edges


Under inflation. When the tire doesn't have enough air pressure, the center tends to be pushed up from the road. Thus causing outer wear on both sides. alignment problems cause wear on one side or the other. Over inflation causes the center of the tire to wear .

How to remove a rear axle on a 98 Chevy K1500 truck


first up jack up the vehicle and remove the damaged wheel
fit the spare tire and then place an indicator ( rod on a brick ) close to the rim of the spare and turn the wheel
if the axle of hub is bent you will see the rim get closer then further away from the indicator as you turn the wheel
if it is , replace the axle and bearings
if not there will be no axle damage but the bearing could be "brinnelled "( a bearing term where the balls or rollers have been imprinted into the race from impact) in which bearing failure will become evident in 10-20,000 miles
next step is to go and get a rear end wheel alignment done as there could be suspension damage that will cause handling and tire wear problems

E430 rear tyres scrubbing on iside shoulder approx 1 inch


I am not an Mercedes expert, but if your rear axle is not solid from one side to the other, you have one of a number of hinged floating rear axles. These may simply require an alignment, just as the front end requires.

With excess wear on the inside track of the tires, the inside of the tire is pitched down lower than the outside edge. Most rear tires are set to run level or slightly pitched to improve handling.

If your rear assembly is not adjustable, the connecting bushings are worn on the linked suspension or the rear axle bearings have excess clearance.

Go somewhere to have a 4 wheel alignment, not to be confused with 4 wheel drive.

Please rate my info.

Front tires wearing faster than should.


uneven wear- on one side of each tire- need front end alignment.
wearing in center- over inflated tires.

If they seem to wear evenly but quicker than they should, rotate with the rear so they all wear at same time.

Rear strut almost rubs tire


This sounds like either a wheel bearing a bent axle or an alignment problem, the alignment shop will check all these before they do anthing with the alignment.

My 1997 Pontiac Sunfie Tires on the front have extreme wear on the inner edge more on the drivers side, than the passenger side they were installed new with only 6000kl driven What causes this .


Hi, The problem is that it is out of alignment. You should have noticed this problem on your other tires. If it was tire balance the wear would be uneven. Take it and have it aligned and rotate the tires and this should Fixya!

Persistent Wheel Alignment Problem


Hard to tell here without seeing some kinda specs from your alignments. There were some issues on rear tire wear on these. It was mainly inner wear on rear tires and the rear camber specs were beyond the negative end of the specifications(max -2.3). They had a revised +1.0 degree upper control arm to address that. If you are not feeling any rebound in the travel you could have a worn or damaged strut,with this many miles that is certainly a possibility.

Rear tire wear


Sounds like your alignment is out, take it and get it balanced, If not that then something has broken in the rear end causing your tire to wear wrong
