Re: president club car golf cart front tires wear out...
Maybe your front end alignment is off?
Measure the distance across the front of the front wheels and across the rear of the front wheels.
On this cart the measurements should be almost exactly the same.
Measure carefully as the measurement needs to be exact.
If the measurements are not the same,adjust one or both tierods to make the distance between the front and rear of the front wheels the same.
TIP:AVOID sharp turns on pavement which will also accelerate tire wear.

loose lug nuts
wheel out of balance; weight fell off
incorrect tire pressure; over pressure can damage the tire
faulty tire;out of round, tread separation, etc
loose wheel bearing
worn shock absorber
worn steering / suspension component; bushing, tie rod end, ball joint, etc
You can rotate the tires, front to back to see if the problem follows the wheels or is a front end only problem.
get under the vehicle (use ramps) and check all linkages for movement pull push on the anti roll bar links, pull push on steering rack and pinion and linkages, any excessive movement, jack each wheel at a time, using a bar check the lower wishbone joints for movement, get the bar in the gap between the wishbone and lower part of the shock. and pull down, if any movement in ball joint up and down replace. while wheel on vehicle check for movement in bearing you will feel a tiny amount not much but pull and push on wheel with opposite hands on 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock and do the same at 9 and 3. now with both wheels off the ground but with the tyres still on, have some one holed one wheel and push pull on wheels each side there should be even movement between both wheels, if everything is fine with the the steering linkages and this dose not feel or sound right then this could be the problem also to add if the inside and out side of the tyres are wearing then the tyre pressure is wrong and needs adjusting to the right tyre pressure .
Check the tire on the front of the car for a broken belt in tire. Look on the back side for a blug,swollen area on side wall of tire. Raise the front of car and block the rear wheels, spin the tire by hand and look on both sides as tire is rotating for anything unusal. Hope this will help you.
Tire vibration can be caused by a few things. Here's what to check: 1. Check the tire inflation. Make sure it's at the recommended pressure. 2. Have a local tire shop check your tire balance. If a tire is out of balance you'll notice the vibration at speeds above 50mph. 3.Wheel alignment. If the alignment is out, the tire will show uneven wear and can cause vibration also. 4. If a front wheel bearing is going out, it can cause vibration, but since your car is only 5-6 years old, this probably isn't the case. Hope this helps you narrow it down. Best of success!
There are multiple reasons the front end could be shaking.
1. Tires are out of balance or one has become separated causing a knot.
2. One of the front bearings is going out.
3. One of the 2 front cv drive shafts are wearing out or bent.
4. Inner and Outer Tie rod ends needing replaced
Above are the 4 main causes of vibration in the front end being able to be felt in the steering wheel. i would first take the vehicle to the tire shop and have them check the balance on all 4 wheels. Also, while they have the wheels off, ask them nicely if they could check out the front end for you.
problem is with over inflating the tires,causing middle tread wear,as long as you have more the 3/32 tread wear in the middle than you are ok.always set tire pressure when cold at around 33psi,check tire inflation sticker on dar jam for exact tire pressure
the manufactor puts a sticker on the passengers side rear door with recommended tire pressure.if you want a smoother ride then decrease the rear tires by 2 lbs,so if the front is supposed to be 35 lbs,put 33 lbs in the rear.try to keep the 2 rear tires the same exact and the two front the same to keep the tires from wearing un-even..unless you have a air pressure monitor in the system that lets you know when your tires need air,this way feels better.The reason for the difference from front to back in pressure is because of the weight of the engine.
Yes tires wearing out without correct rotations will cause the tires to wear out quickly, This applies to anycar not just L-series though. I would correct the tire noise before dealing with the wheel bearing because I would almost bet the bearing is ok and they are just hearing tire noise. I have seen a few bad wheel bearings on L cars, but nowhere near as many as the number of tires i have seen making noise. Get a couple of tires and drive it and see what you think. Oh BTW dealerships are not owned by the manufacturers they are privately owned and their employees are not considered employees of that dealerships manufacturer. The people at a dealership work for only a slightly larger company than your local garage, and usually a much smaller company than most national chain tire/repair shops.
