Have you tried to adjust the tire pressure? The manufacturer's "RECOMMENDED" tire psi is located on the info label in the drivers door jamb. Too many people make the mistake of using the "MAXIMUM" tire psi written on the side wall of the tire.

Alignment deals with tire wear. If you look at the wheels and they are leaning in or out far enough that it is obviously wrong. Then it would.

My front tyrers are both worn on the inside


You have a front end wheel alignment issue, most likely that would be caster, have it checked for proper wheel aligment specs. This must be done on a special machine called an "Alignment Rack" Also make sure you rotate your tires front to rear at least every 6,000 miles.

2007 for focus pulls to left after being hit in right rear tire.It was a slow speed hit and no body damgage. Could it just be out of aligment of more serious problem


Yes this is an alignment issue. Even though the damage does appear minor there is a small chance that there is hidden damage that will not be found until the car is on the alignment rack. Take your vehicle to a reputable alignment technician and have it aligned. Then might be a good time to rotate and balance the tires also.

My tires are slighting inwards the back tires. what could be wrong?


The only reasons that I could come up with are the stut to knuckle attaching bolts are loose or have been loosened maybe alignment that wasn't done correctly or new stuts that they didn't bother with an alignment. Could also be the struts themselves are frozen. To check and see if in fact they are frozen, bounce the rear of the vehicle and see if it bounces a few times SOFTLY or do they bounce with little travel, very stiff like. Hope that this helps. Best wishes.

Spooky handling on rain grooves with new tires


If you paid for an aligment just ask the facility if there was any problem with the specs; your tape is not enough. Since the problem started with the new tires you have to look at them first; especially if they have a real aggressive tread design

97 dakota loud noise from tires while driving


I'd say get the alignment done first, and hope you have'nt ruined the tires already. Alignment problems can also wear out bearings prematurely. Start with a rotation of the tires & alignment.

My Answer:

The one thing you never mentioned was if you had your Jeep SUV Front-end Aligned after you had the new tires installed?

I'm guessing/hoping you did???

Where did you have the work done at? Be specific here!

Was it a 2-wheel or 4-wheel alignment if that applies here? Big difference it was done RIGHT or if it was done WRONG? That's just maybe part of the problem though if it was indeed MIS-ALIGNED. When you say PULLING - that is a BIG CLUE right there of a possible MIS-ALIGNMENT!!

Not sure what size tires you had on it originally or which size new tires you had put on, but if the new tires were over-sized then you are rubbing on the mainframe or possibly rubbing the front fender wells??

This has happened before, as sometimes they don't pull the right size tires from stock, and then don't double check them before mounting them.

Esp when you are running bigger rims and lower profile tires, which might be your case, as you didn't say anything to the contrary.

If we're talking about STOCK tires for STOCK tires here then your driver side door decal will state the factory installed tires as to their proper size. Any modification to that as to bigger rims and lower profile tires has to be done to factory recommended specs. Lets hope so anyway!

If I were you I would be double checking everything, as to what was actually done, and as to what tires, etc were put on your SUV.

The clue to your problem lies right there to start with! After all nothing was mentioned about any "pulling" before you had the new tires put on.

Here's one last big clue as to if you actually got a "bad alignment" on your Jeep SUV.

Have someone else drive behind you on an empty straight flat street (or else have someone else drive your Jeep and you follow behind about 4 to 5 car lengths back). If your Jeep's body is trying to track crooked (as if on an angle diagonal to straight ahead) as the tires are trying to track straight ahead - then you definitely just got a bummer mis-alignment!

I'm putting my money this is the case, as I've seen it so many times it's not funny.

It called a "shade tree alignment" and for good reason.

Let me know I was right?
