You most likely have an alignment problem. If BOTH FRONT TIRES are worn the same ( inside edge worn ), that would indicate a TOE- OUT problem such as ( \ / ) . Picture those 2 lines as your front tires going down the road . Hope this helps.

Inside or outside wear is due to incorrect camber. You will need a new set of tires, and an alignment. Be sure you are rotating on a 5000mi schedule too - as improper rotation can cause rapid wear on vehicles with only a small alignment problem.

This is a wheel camber (in and out tilt of wheel and tire) problem, u may have to have a Camber adjustment kit put in, most new cars have no adjustment provided for this. the bottom line here is you need to see a really good front end shop to get this taken care of, also the tires will continue to wear this way even if problem is corrected, so may want to replace them or rotate them.

I replaced the tires on my 2003 mitsubishi eclipse 2 months ago & the front two have worn to the wires on both sides. a week ago there was still some tread on them. why could this be happening?


1. What brand and model of tire was fitted?

2. Please describe the wear pattern on the front tires in more detail. For example is the excessive tread wear.....
A. Right across the face of the tread on each tire or
B. On the outside edges of the tread on each tire or
C. on the inside edges of the tread on each tire or
D. on both sides of the tread but not on the center section of the tread on both tires.
-----------------------------------------------------
B is normally caused by incorrect toe setting - toe in
C is also normally caused by incorrect toe setting - toe out
D is normally caused by tire pressure set way too low.

Faulty steering and suspension components can also cause abnormal tire wear for any component that affects the wheel alignment settings.
------------------------------------------------------------------
If you can provide a better description of the tire wear on each front tire you will get a better answer.

Hi I have a 2008 chevy Imple all four of the trieres have worn out on the inside and the left rear tire is worn down to the threads on the in side the mileage on the car is 57000


i would susppect a Alignment problem or even a worn out suspension part, i would start with new tires as you need them regardless and get an alignment, most of the tire wear is due to LACK of tire rotations and alignment checks. Start with that 1st , get new tires and an alignment check.

Rear tires are wearing out on the inside & outside with plenty of tread left on the middle of the tire. these tires only have about 8000 miles on them & are worn to the cords.


It sounds like a classic case of tyres being under inflated, check with car manual or tyre supplier for the correct pressure's

Should there be an alignment problem with a 2008 Toyota Highlander with 17" Toyo tires @ 20,600 miles? Is this normal wear and tear, or is it a manfacturer defect?


You shouldn't have to change alignment after only a year and 20,000 miles. It must be under warranty - take it back for fix!

There is no problem with the car at all i just want to keep the car in great condition so i was just wondering what regular maintenance is the most important and needs to be done regularly besides the oil...


New timing belt and serpentine belt every 50,000 miles. New filter with every oil change. Replace the air filter when it gets so that you can't see diffuse light through it. Watch fluid levels. Have the CV joints and rubber boots checked every 20,000 miles or so. Check with your transmission servicer for fluid and filter changes. Replace platinum spark plugs every 100,000 miles along with new spark plug wiring. Check the codes if the check engine light comes on. Replace the fuel filter ever 20,000 miles--more often if poor fuel quality.

2007 Impala rear tire wear due rear wheel spindle rods


Nick52284,
I have gone thru 3 sets of good tires now. Tires lasting from 10-12k miles before they hit cords. This is after the dealer does an alignment to spec. Funny thing is I have never seen the alignment specs from the dealer, I only get "aligned to spec". My wear is on the inside of the tires just as described in the police bulletin. I have tried different brands each time and get the same result (wear to the cords in 6 months or less). The bulletin only applies to the police version becasue GM doesn't want the bill for the thousands of ordinary customers repairs. There are enough complaints of this exact thing on any Chevy site that you can find. We aren't all nimrods.

You may be a guru, but I think you don't know what you are talking about.
