My car is eating away at my tires


Keisha,

How many miles on these tires? Are they wearing on the outside edge, inside edge, or evenly across the tread? do you have them rotated regularly? Generally the number one cause of premature tire wear is improper inflation. Always use the tire pressure information on the sticker on the inside of your driver side door, not the "Max PSI" listed on the tire. The second cause is the wheels being out of alignment. Most tire shops will check the alignment for free. I usually suggest Firestone because they (to my knowledge) are one of the only shops left that do lifetime warranty alignments. Good luck and hope this helps.

2003 gran prix- front pasenger tire has play. what can i do to fix it?


Jack up car with jack under the lower control arm, enough to get tire off the ground. With tire on, grab tire outside edges at 3 oclock & 9 oclock, push in & pull out respectively on each hand. Look for play in bearing between bearing & cv shaft. You can also see play in outer & inner tirods if any. Now move hands to 12 oclock & 6 oclock, push in & pull out & check for play in upper & lower balljoints. You should be able to verify whatever component is loose.

Front end shaking and squilling and eating tires


You need to take your van in for a front end alignment and the problem will appear right away,may just need adjustment but also it may need work.Have the repairs made because it sounds like your van is unsafe to drive in it's present condition.

Looking at buying one with 44,000 miles I have seen the maintenance report but a friend has an 04 and it eats tires. any connection?


people drive differently and cars are set up differently --if ur friend is an aggressive driver and doesnt take care of tires [maintain air pressure--rotate-and alignment etc] which would make any vehicle will eat tires- also different tire companies products wear different

I love the car and it drives great, however, my front tires are wearing at an incredible rate. I just bought new tires because we thought the tires it came with were bad due to no tread left after a 2100...


u still need to take your car to a allighment, most likely your front tie rods were adjusted wrong and both front wheels go inside or they both go outside, and in that case it will never pull to neither side but it will eat your tires like crazy let the allighment test show u that they are off it original measurements, i will it will solve your problem

I have a vibrating in the front right. At most speeds. When I turn slightly to the left it does not do it.


The problem you describe is consistant with a tire problem. Could be as simple as rebalancing, however since it does not do it when you turn left, it makes this solution unlikely, but not out of the question. I would, based on your description of the problem tend to think that your tire may be slightly out of round from the center to the left side of the contact patch, or possibly a belt separating on the inside. When you turn left, your tire will tend to ride on the right edge, you loose the vibration, which would lead me to believe that your tire is "true" on the right side of the contact area.

Front tyres excessive wear


Hello!

the Chevy G-Van is very rough on tires, especialy the inner and outer edges as it is so top heavy and sways som much, the weight is consistantly on the outer edges of the tires. causing the edges to burn off. if this is the type of wear you have. there really is not much you can do...i assume the repair shops have confirmed the alignment angles are in specs...if this is so. i stongly suggest purchasing tires that have a close tread on the out side edges. to be more specific. if you purchase an off road tire, it has large voides between tred lugs allowing for the debris to be evacuated quickly, forcing it to the outer edges of tire and out. if you purchase a highway type tire that has a "closed" tread on outside edges of tire you will expierence better success with keeping tires ono the front end longer that 15,000 miles...i dont know what brands of tires are in england, but i would suggest a Uniroyal HDH (heavy duty highway) or similar tread pattern..this will help you out alot...below is a link to the uniroyal site, view the HDH vs the HDT, the large voids i speak of to avoid for your truck is on the HDT (heavy duty traction)...good luck...let me know how you make out!

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.
