Tires cannot wear themselves on one side unless they are forced to; ie ALIGNMENT. You might have to start with frame equipment at an auto body shop.

Your toe in part of your alignment is out it is toed in alittle to much if both tires are worn on the outside the toe in being out like that means the front stance of the front tires is narrower by more than it should be than the rear stance of the front tires it shouldn't be more than a 1/16 of an inch narrower anymore than that is to much.

Do you have aftermarket rims? If the rims rub against an outer tie rod, it will destroy tires. Any kind of suspension modification can cause this also.

SOURCE: 07 Toyota Tacoma Exclamation Light

If you get the exclamation point (!) light that's with a U-shape, it's likely that one or more of your TIRES has low pressure. I also had this once, and it, too, was on a cold January day in New Hampshire (-8ºF).
When you have your tire pressures checked, do remember, however, that you actually have FIVE (5) tires, including the SPARE.  My problem turned out to be low pressure in that SPARE!

SOURCE: Toyo 19" A20 Tires wearing out quickly

Contact the Toyo company. toyota will not help you on this one. You need to check to see if there is unusual shredding or peeling or possibly chunks coming off the tires. That is what happened with mine at 14K miles and I am in the process of getting them replaced. Toyota service told me they thought it was normal wear. It was not. After I contacted Toyo, they told me to go to a toyo dealer and have them call the company back. They offered me 100% if I put the same A20 tire onthe vehicle and 70% (100% for unused spare) if I put the new Toyo HT. I chose the latter since it has a 60K mile warranty. What I also found out is the A20 tire is not the same one you can buy now. The new one is the A20A. The original A20 was made specifically for Toyota at their request as an OEM tire. Toyota should have some liability in this and I am fighting them for the 30% cost, but am not holding my breath they will help.

My front passenger wheel makes a rubbing noise at 50 mph


You just need to have a mechanic or someone look at the front end. Has it been happening long enough to cause any odd tire wear on the tire? If the front end alignment is off, you could certainly get a lot more road noise, but even a badly worn tire would cause some noise.
If the tire is actually rubbing against something, and you hear it at 50 mph, that seems to indicate badly worn suspension parts- like ball joints or struts...so you should consider a good front end alignment shop and tell them the condition. They can check the tires and the front end as well. A reputable shop would check all that anyway, to make sure that the alignment job will actually keep the front end true.

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.

Hi,
Have you ever replaced the shocks / struts? Are you sure your tire does'nt have a bump spot or out of round? I usually will swap the tires front to back to see if the vibration or bumping moves, good way to tell if the tire is bad. I've gotten some pretty poor tires before, some do have factory flaws that will cause that. Shocks will cause that also. Sway bar pins / joints that are worn can cause that also.

I have uneven wear on my 2006 toyota tundra tires, the right tires are worn much more on the outer edge than the left. any thoughts?


You have a front suspension part that is worn and/or need the front end aligned. If problem is in the rear you may need a four wheel alignment. If it was low air pressure it would wear the inside and outside edges of the tires.

When i go over 55mph my front end trembles so bad it can be felt on the steering wheel


There are multiple reasons the front end could be shaking.

1. Tires are out of balance or one has become separated causing a knot.

2. One of the front bearings is going out.

3. One of the 2 front cv drive shafts are wearing out or bent.

4. Inner and Outer Tie rod ends needing replaced

Above are the 4 main causes of vibration in the front end being able to be felt in the steering wheel. i would first take the vehicle to the tire shop and have them check the balance on all 4 wheels. Also, while they have the wheels off, ask them nicely if they could check out the front end for you.

Tires worn on the inside only


this is caused by a camber problem, camber is the tilt of the tire in and out, this can be caused by worn lower control arms, have them checked by a front end shop, they will in most cases do a visual check of the front end and give u an estimate for free, I know tire shops do this.

Tires wearing inside on 2008 Impala LT


this is a wheel camber (in and out tilt of wheel and tire) problem, u may have to have a Camber adjustment kit put in, most new cars have no adjustment provided for this. the bottom line here is you need to see a really good front end shop to get this taken care of, also the tires will continue to wear this way even if problem is corrected, so may want to replace them or rotate them.

Steering wheel turn to right, 1995 aerostar-extended


Something is wrong with the front end. Bring it in for a front end alignment (that could be all it needs) and have them check for problems with front end suspension components. There may be something that is worn out ( such as ball joints, or tie rod ends) that is causing the uneven tire wear. There may also be a problem from hitting a large pot hole, or curb, which bent something causing this. Tell the shop to NOT align the front end if they find that some components need to be replaced, as when something is replaced, you should have the front end aligned, and you don't want to have it done twice.
