Try looking up a camber kit for the car.

Is the wear spot on the inside treads or on the inside tire wall? Since you put on new/larger rims I would say it is either improper tire inflation or your ball joints are either dying on you or they aren't setup right for that size tire/rim. Also, new rims can throw off your speedo as well.

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 .

1997 cavalier, both rear tires wearing on the outside 1/2 of the tires. What would the probable culprit be? The car has 97k miles on it...


if you don`t rotate the tires this can cause abnormal tire wear.but with tire wear on the outer 1/2 of the tire indicates either the camber setting is off or you could have bad rear springs changing the ride height of the car causing the change in camber.to find out you would have to have a 4 wheel alignment done to check rear alignment readings.if the springs are worn then the ride height can be checked with a tape measure and compared to specs,if off then the springs should be changed along with the rear shocks.

The front tires wear rather quikly . possible something wrong with sepension


  • If you wear either the inside or outside of the tire which could mean your camber setting is off and alignment is needed.
  • If you have uneven tire wear in one direction (place hand over tire thread and run it forward direction, feeling for serrated sensation similar to a saw tooth) would relate to a worn shock absorber.
  • Consistent wear on the middle part of the tire means you are over inflating your tire. Adjust pressure with a cold tire and use a quality gauge.
  • Consistent wear at the inside and outside part of your thread means you are under inflating your tire.
  • Uneven cupping around the tire means a suspension component is worn. Check all rubber bushings for condition and ball joints for play.

Tire wear in middle of both rear tires


problem is with over inflating the tires,causing middle tread wear,as long as you have more the 3/32 tread wear in the middle than you are ok.always set tire pressure when cold at around 33psi,check tire inflation sticker on dar jam for exact tire pressure

I dont think the sway bar will affect the tires at all, but i would suggest fixig it as it helps the car handle the road better.

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

2002 E320. Premature tire wear on right rear wheel.


THese cars have a high speed rated tire and will almost always wear quickly. The right rear is the drive wheel (where the power goes when you give it gas) It will wear real quickly if you drive it hard. I would try rotating every 7500 miles (unless tire sizes are different as with the SL series) I sell a lot of tires on these cars and 25K is usually the limit.

Tire wear


does the car make noise from the rear when you go at a high speed. If it does it may be your bearings. I had my bearing wear out on me at 15000 miles.
