Why do I need a proper alignment? [Part 2 - center wear]

In a post last month, we answered the question Why Does My Car Need An Alignment?.  In today’s post, we will continue looking at the problems and subsequent solutions when you see uneven tire wear.

In the photo above, you’ll notice that the tire has obvious CENTER WEAR. The problem could be cause by:

  1. Running tires over-inflated (under-inflation results in outside wear)
  2. Overloading the vehicle
  3. Possible combination of camber and toe problems
  4. Improper tire and wheel fitment

The solution for tires with center wear?

  • Check tire pressure weekly
  • Total 4-wheel alignment
  • Check loading of your vehicle
  • Rotate tires at regular intervals
