This sounds like an alignment issue, camber and toe out can cause this. Get the front end inspected, and if parts are not loose, replace the tires and get an alignment.

I replaced the tires on my 2003 mitsubishi eclipse 2 months ago & the front two have worn to the wires on both sides. a week ago there was still some tread on them. why could this be happening?


1. What brand and model of tire was fitted?

2. Please describe the wear pattern on the front tires in more detail. For example is the excessive tread wear.....
A. Right across the face of the tread on each tire or
B. On the outside edges of the tread on each tire or
C. on the inside edges of the tread on each tire or
D. on both sides of the tread but not on the center section of the tread on both tires.
-----------------------------------------------------
B is normally caused by incorrect toe setting - toe in
C is also normally caused by incorrect toe setting - toe out
D is normally caused by tire pressure set way too low.

Faulty steering and suspension components can also cause abnormal tire wear for any component that affects the wheel alignment settings.
------------------------------------------------------------------
If you can provide a better description of the tire wear on each front tire you will get a better answer.

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.

Tip

Keep your tires in good lasting shape


Did you ever see the statements in the tire dealer shops stating a specific tire model will last approx. 50-75,000 miles/
This will never happen unless you have your tires rotated every 7500 miles, the front tires wear excessively compared to the rear tires in 90% of the cars/trucks.
Why? Because the front tires in most cases are the drive tires(front wheel drive) causing the front tires to ocasionally spin causing excessive wear and also the front tires are the ones that guide your vehicle down the road, when you turn the steering wheel you are turning the front tires to make the car go in the direction you want thus causing more excessive wear to the front tires, in order to get even wear from front to back tires one must move the front tires to the back tires at 7500 mile intervals, making sure the tires only get rotated to the same side of the car each and every time, if you move a right rear tire to a left front position, severe damage may occur so please keep them same side rotations.
Also have your wheel alignment checked at a tire shop each time you bring it in for a wheel/tire rotation as pot holes, hitting curbs,etc all can effect the way the tires wear if the alignment goes out.

Shakes on the front right side at 50 miles especially if i hit the gas


Vibration, usually upon acceleration? Sounds like the passenger side axle may be (possibly)wearing as the clearances inside the axle wear out, creating excessive movement when under a load (acceleration). Usually a rapid vibration that increases as you speed up.

Front tires wearing on inside very quickly on 1998 Mazda B2500


This may be due to the alignment being out of specification or possibly loose front end parts throwing your alignment out.

Excessive tire wear ... 15,000 miles, 2 years old ... dealer says they are worn out on inside???


The only way a tire can wear out prematurely on the inside in my opinion is if you were driving around with low tire pressure for an extended period of time. Maybe they are saying the tires have what we mechanics call dryrot ? The sun dries the rubber and silicates causing cracks in the tire.I can only give you an opinion in this case without actually inspecting the tires myself off of the rim. Sorry, Hope that helps ? feel free to ask for clarification.
