Check out your rear suspension and ball joints. It can cause those issues.

Have you removed either tire for rotation .flat. ect. That alone isenough to throw you alignment out of wack. Plus 12.000 miles I would think you would be happy with the life youve gotten out of that set of tires. Buy a new set of tires and be thankful this set gave you goid long life

SOURCE: At 1500 miles the front

once a were pattern is worn in tire s unless you rotate tires to the rear they will keep wearing you should rotate your tires every oil change especially if you do alot of around town driving i am willing to bet you that good year lied to you about the alignment i am sure the dealer put it into spec the first time you just need to rotate them a little more often

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.

SOURCE: My C70 has way more wear on the inside of the rear

2.5 degrees negative camber is not within spec. You need new control arms in the rear. These will set your camber back to the factory setting and reduce your tire wear on the inner edge. The first shop you went to is correct, the camber cannot be adjusted, components must be replaced to rectify the excessive camber. Ive done a couple of New Style C70 rear control arms for this very reason, if your vehicle is under warranty however, the dealer needs to be able to prove that the car needs it. So if you dont have wear on your tires and when the toe was set it readjusted the camber (when you adjust toe it affects camber and caster measurements) then they cant prove to Volvo that it needs the control arms. I hope this helps

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

Uneven tire wear on passenger side--front & back. Inner tread worn more than outer.

I'm being told I need to have the rear cambers replaced during my alignment because they are off by some measurement and this is causing my rear tires to cup.


Cupping is usually caused by faulty shock or struts. Camber that is out of specification will cause uneven wear from inside to outside of tire. The shop should supply you with a printout of where your measurements are currently and what they should be. Can you send a good picture of the tires tread?

Rear wheels toeing in at top wearing inside of tyre


Your car needs a Rear Wheel Alignment, the components need to be inspected/checked for wear and then aligned. Worn ball joints, wheel bearings and so forth can cause bad alignment & tire wear.
Also it's hard to get an accurate alignment once a tire is worn on the inside or outside of the tread.

2001 Passat front drive, rotated tires and the left rear that was moved to the left front is making a flap flap noise. Pulled it off and it is scalloped around the inside edge of the tire. Have been...


I would have the 4 wheels alignment checked, if the rear is out it can be aligned by shims. any reputable alignment shop will know how to perform this. as far as the noisy tire goes it will need to be replaced to stop the noise. If the alignment is ok than the tire may have a broken belt internally which caused it to wear uneven

Rear wheel scratching noise


Check if there is some debris or obstuction in the wheel well. Also check the tread of the tires for uneven wear.

Put the car on a jack and try to move the wheel up and down. If it does so with clanking sound, your wheel bearing is defective and needs to be replace. For the uneven wear on your tires, you need to get an alignment for your car.
