It does sound like you've got an alignment problem. The only solution to that would be to take it to a shop and get it aligned.

Keeps pulling to the right


check wheel bearing condition and adjustment on the right wheel. Check that the pads and caliper is free on the disc rotor. Check wheel alignment. Check tyre size and tyre pressure . Check for free movement of rear brakes as a dragging rear brake will affect the steering. Check the rear end alignment as an out of align rear axle will affect the front end steering.

Tire noise already replaced tires


tyre noise come from wheel alignment out and the tread pattern on the tyres . Have a wheel alignment done starting on the rear end first as it affects the front alignment.. Check CV joints and wheel bearings for serviceability and adjustment.

Tire wear 2011 hyundai elantra


take the car to a suspension specialist shop and have the rear wheels aligned first
have the suspension checked for worn mounts or bad springs
it is very important that the rear end is aligned before the front end
suspect that the suspension rubbers need replacing as it is over 6 years old
the tyre rotation is a myth perpetrated on drivers to sell tyres
when the tyre construction was cross-ply and not radials yes rotation then on cross-ply tyres could get the wear to even out but with radials once the wear is started then the tyre continually wears in that pattern regardless of which wheel it is on
even if you take that tyre of the car and put it on a trailer , it will still continue to wear in that pattern
tyres are no longer rotated but simply put front to back on the same side other wise the belts flex in a new direction in the tread and fail earlier that expected
besides that fact that tyre rotation will not allow you to monitor for suspension problems or wheel alignment problems and cost you 4 tyres at a time instead of two

I have 2000 honda crv. Both rear tyres are wearing on the inside much more than the outside what can i do to fix this?


The possible fault is that the alignment of the wheels must be checked before any comment can be done. Check if the tyre pressure is correct on all the wheels, a decision can be taken after the alignment report is seen ,check the balancing rod, the wheel bearings and the suspension. Also the quality of the tyres must be seen if so this can be reported to the dealer

Mitsubishi Pajero Exceed short chassis,2000, rear wheels dip in a bit looking from the back, is the wheel alignment off?


these have inderpendant suspension and can look like the top of rear tyres are further in than the bottom, if both sides are about the same then is prob normal.
If you carry a lot of weight in the rear regulary then would reccommend a wheel alignment when the vehicle is fully loaded.
otherwise take a look at the tread of the rear tyres, if the edges have worn a lot more than the centre then an alignment is due...

Front wheel lenght 2 inches more than rear wheel lenght.Normal?


It should not be a problem as long as he aligns the tires in a four wheel alinement it will be fine, on trucks some axles stick out more on one side than they do the other so don't worry about it, if he's any good he can still align them it's just more work for him.

1998 RAV4 TYRE PRESSURE??


Thomas Heime is wrong, wrong, wrong! That is the max. pressure that the tyre can handle! the proper tyre pressure is written below the latch on the passenger side door. Open the passenger door, look at the label below the latch and there it is.

Uneven tyre wear can only really be caused by either worn suspension or steering components, or wheel alignment angles incorrect. The best way to check this out is to get a wheel alignment carried out by a reputable specialist, as they will (or certainly should) go over your suspension and steering first to make sure there are no faults before they reset the wheel alignment. The other thing to note is that if the uneven tyre wear is bad enough the wheel alignment won't fix the wear problem, just slow it down.
The shimmy could be caused by a couple of things (driveshaft out of balance, tyre fault, wheel balance) but the best thing to do initially is get the wheels balanced first and see if that fixes the problem, and then go from there.
The same company should be able to both the alignment and balance, and these jobs should both be done periodically (at least whenever you replace tyres) to improve tyre life and make the vehicle easier and nicer to drive.

Hope this helps,
Mark.

My 2002 rav4 4AWD make sound ("DUK DUK DUK") on the steering wheel


Hi

The noise from the front could be one of the drop links or one of the bottom ball joints amongst other things, and the noise from the back could indeed be a rear wheel bearing, and it could also be an underinflated tyre.

Very best regards
