If the wheels are bowed out it is usually caused by the steering linkage being damaged. Power Wheels vehicles have a long metal bar that runs between the two front wheels on the vehicle, on either end of the long bar is a plastic bracket. The bracket is riveted to the long bar and sometimes that can become loose or bent.
Remove the battery and flip the vehicle over, inspect the linkage and also the front axles to see if they are bent or damaged. If any parts are they need to be replaced, also make sure the tires themselves are not damaged.
Here is a link to the parts you will need for the repair.

I got a 1989 big bear it pulls to the right i put new tie rid ends and upper and lower balk joints in pulled cv axel it seems to be ok steering bearings seem fine also anyine have any ideas


Try aiming the handle bar straight and pull some kite string across the rear wheel , lightly touching the sidewalls of the tire. With the length of the string pulled across the front tire, adjust the outer tie rod so as to make front tire lightly touch the string. That should square the front tire to the back tire. Once the front and rear are squared, adjust tie rod in 1 turn for a slight negative toe. Do both sides while making sure to keep the handle bar straight during string and adjustment. That should help.

What could be wrong with my tire if it bows in


Bows in at top or bottom? More than likely
you need your suspension aligned. The tire just follows the suspension. Misalignment can cause tire wear and handling problems. Front wheel drive cars need 4 wheel alignment to insure the back isn't steering the front. Other causes are shock/strut or control arm bushing wear or failure. Tie rod ends or idler arm wear can cause tire wear as well.
All parts should be tight and serviceable before alignment.

One of my tires is straight and the other one is pointed outwards. the steering wheel is sideways as like im turning


The easiest way to do this is straighten the steering wheel first Brandon. Next is to walk to the back of the truck and eye ball the left front tire from a looking from the side of the back tire. If that one is straight ahead before or after you adjust it, Now check the passenger side the same way.When both look straight, now take a tape measure and measure the distance from the center tread on the right front tire to the center of the left front tire.Say its 61", now do the same behind the front tires. It might say 58". You want to end up with the front measurement being 1/4 of an inch smaller then the back.

1994 ford thunderbird lx. 4.6 v8. Im looking for sugestions on what is causing my rear tires to bow out on the bottom. They look like this: //~~~\\ The passenger side is bowed out about 3". the drivers...


That car has an independant rear suspension that has either been mis adjusted or something is broken. These rears have to be aligned just like the front suspension.
