inside tire wear=-

Postby jamesmetairie » Wed Jun 20, 2018 5:36 am

05 base vibe, 124,000 miles on it., automatic tranny.
running bf goodrich touring t/a,s from sam,s club.
maybe 20,000 miles on these tires.
about psi 33 on all 4 tires.
rotate regular.
divers side , rear tire showing wear only on the inside.
assuming there is no parts worn out and no damage to the suspension
what,s the usual cause of such wear?

how many miles do you guys usually get out of the original struts front and rear?

as always, thanks to all for any advice.

According to the Bridgestone website, it is usually your toe and/or camber are out of spec. When is the last time the car had an alignment, which is even more important if you live in a northern climate (which you don't) where freeze/thaw take a huge toll on the roads?
I had T/A tires once. The worst I've ever owned. Uneven wear turned into the loudest tire noise I have ever experienced. If you find yourself needing tires from Sam's again, get the General Altimax R/T 43
Live it up: There will be plenty of time to be old when you die.

I agree with caretaker. Take it in for an alignment and see. Also highly recommend the Altimax RT43. Great treadlife, QUIET, smooth riding tire at a reasonable price.
