Yes. If there is no tread in the center of the tire it should be replaced -- this is very dangerous, especially on wet roads.

If the tire is wearing in the center, it could be caused by overinflation. Check that tire pressure is within spec. on new tire.

Do i need to replace all 4 tires on my 1998 mazda mpv if only two are bad (the other 2 almost new)?


Replacing two should be fine. The only problem would come if they were both on one side, as opposed to both front or both back. But if thats the case, the tire center can rotate the tires to the optimum position. Most tire centers prefer to put new tires on the front of a car and put the older ones on the back as this provides better traction in wet driving conditions.

How should I rotate my tires? I've had people say front to back, side to side? front to front, back to back?


It really depends on the tires. Some tires have a one-way tread pattern and are only supposed to rotate in one direction (i.e. ones that pull water away from the center of the tire). In this case, you must rotate driver-rear to driver-front and passenger-rear to passenger-front. If you have a symmetrical tread pattern, you should rotate driver-rear to passenger-front and passenger-rear to driver front.

If you post a picture of the tread pattern, I can tell you which you should do.

When roads have even a dusting of snow on them and i barely touch the brakes to slow and stop, the front ones instantly lock up and pull me to the right. I immediately take my foot off the brake when this...


There are a number of possibilities here. First thing to do is make sure the new rear brakes are properly adjusted. If they are too loose they will not engage when you push gently on the pedal and the front brakes will be doing all the work. This could easily cause you to slide. There is a self-adjusting mechanism in the rear but these can become inoperative over time. The brakes can be adjusted manually.
Second, how much tread is on the front tires? As tread wears down the tire becomes less able to handle snow. Does one tire have less tread than the other? Tires have a wear bar built into them so look at the tread and see if you can find a rubber bar that extends across the tread. The more visible it is the less likely there is enough tread to handle snow. It may still be legal to use the tire but save it for summer. If the wear bar is almost flush with the tread,run your hand across it, then that is most likely your problem. Compare the front tires to the back ones, use a coin to see the difference, stick it in the tread groove and note where the tread comes on the coin. The grooves in the tread move snow away and once they are full the tires rides up on the snow instead of staying on the road. If you are unsure stop at a tire shop and get them to help check it out ( 3/32 inches is the minimum I think).
If these are good then you could have a brake caliper starting to go bad. They will seize up and stop working. When that happens the brake pressure transfers to the wheel that works. This will make the car pull to the side that works. So if the back brakes are good and the tires and good enough I would look at replacing the LEFT brake caliper. That would be the one sticking.
If you are travelling on roads that produce a noticable lean inside your car this could also be at least part of the problem. The car would tend to slide with the lean but if the roads appear flat then it's not likely the problem. Roads are "crowned" to be about 2% off level to help water run off but as a rule this shouldn't be the problem.
Hope this helps.

Slip Control Coming on Infinity G35 6 Speed Coupe with New Tires


you have a computer for your control on your car. It is set up so only the factory front and rear tires sizes will work, any change, it picks it up. this should solve the problem.

Front and rear tires are different. Check your owners manual for the correct tire sizes.

Accelerate tire


I've added all sort of goodies to the bike. Approximatley 1500 miles ago I put brand new Dunlop 404 tires on the bike. The front tire still looks brand new. My problem is the rear tire. It's already in worse shape than the tire I replaced. Tread depth for new Dunlop 404 is 9/32. The tread is slick in the middle 3 inches of the rear tire. My first reasoning for the accelerated tire wear was to much air. I've always kept 36 psi in the tire which is what is recommended. I checked allignment (by wrapping fishing line around rear tire and stretching past front) and it's only 1/8th of an inch off. I don't think 1/8th is enough to cause the tread to wear that fast and I'm not even sure how you would align the motorcycle due to being shaft and not chain/belt. The local yamaha dealership balanced the tires when they replaced with my old ones. Thanks for reading and would appreciate and advice. Also I've used as many as three pressure guages at one time to make sure I was putting 36 psi in the rear tire and the arrow of direction is pointing in the right direction and I ride mostly solo. I've never burned out the tires. I've always been easy on the motorcycle and I'm the only driver. Is 1,500 miles all that I can expect to get out of a new tire? If not, how many?,I doubt that it's an alignment problem, but you'll need to check it with a little more accuracy than the fishing line method; keep in mind that the rear tire is often wider than the front which will give a misleading indication. You'd be better off to tape two straight broomsticks to the rear wheel, one on each side, that extend up to the front axle - with the front wheel pointed straight ahead you then measure the distance between each pole and the front fork or other similar symmetric point of reference. But because this is a shaft driven bike, you'd have other more obvious indicators if there was an alignment problem. Excessive freeplay between the shaft pinion and the ring gear, weird noises coming from the rear end (of the bike, not you Wink ), oil leakage onto the rear hub, etc. I'd be more inclined to suspect you had too much air pressure in the rear which caused the wear. Do you use the same gauge to check the tire pressure all the time? Try another one to see if the readings differ and don't go by the scale on the air hose at the local garage, they are notoriously inaccurate. Is the tire unidirectional? Check to see if there is an arrow molded onto the sidewall and make sure it is pointing in the direction of rotation - sometimes even an experienced mechanic will miss this one. Do you do a lot of two-up riding at extended highway speeds? This can accelerate rear tire wear. But at only 1,500km you still should have way more tread depth left than what you have now.,,,

Have just had rear tyres replaced,old ones were zr rated new ones y rated is this ok as handling seems very strange on long motorway bends,was fine before.


mixing different tread depths and/or brands of tires can cause the unsteady feeling. also, worn tires can stick to the ground better that full tread depth tires. similiar to race tires having little tread.

REAR WHEEL ALIGNMENT
TOE-IN : 0±2 mm (0±0.08 in.)

Right wheel : Clockwise direction : toe-in Left wheel : Clockwise direction : ton-out Maximum difference between LH and RH : 3mm 2. The cam bolt should be adjusted within a 90° range left or right from the center position.

Tread depth of tire [Limit] : 1.6 mm (0.06 in.) 2. If the remaining tread depth is less than the limit, replace the tire. note_icon.gif When the tread depth of the tire is reduced to 1.6 mm (0.06 in.) or less, the wear indicators will appear.
