2009 Escape Premature front tire wear

I have wear on the inside edge of the front tires after switching from the stock 17 inch Michelin Cross Terrains 225's to Cooper discoverers 235's. The service guy at my local Ford said that this year Escape has issues with premature tire wear, has anyone heard this? The tire wear didn't start until after i had part of the steering column replaced under warranty for sticking when turning all the way to the left. I asked them if it required a wheel alignment as a result of the replacement and they said no which I obviously don't believe.

It definitely needs the toe-in adjusted. I'd talk to the service manager.

Any steering component replacement when covered under warranty should also include an alignment. The shop just sounds incompetent.

Re: 2009 Escape Premature front tire wear

Yes, alignment would be something to have done when the steering was worked on, and when you changed the tires. I have a 2009 Escape Hybrid, and had no different WEAR, I did have tire cracking, which got to be pretty bad, so I got the michelin LT tires for my vehicle, and had the alignment done, all is fine. Hope you get this taken care of, for sure.
