tyre wear

hi guys

hope u can help me with this


all of my tyres are wearing on the in sides, i know i need a front end alignment but that doesnt explain why the rear tyres are doing it to. i've had a look at the rear and everything in fine

the only thing i can put it down to is the tyres.

any help would be great.

its an 87 xf falcon

Re: tyre wear

Alignment is what you definetely need. Without correct alignment, the tires don't sit flat across the road, hence wearing out the inside faster.

I need one badly to, almost had an accident and had to dodge the wanker by jumping up the kerb, which slammed to car back down and has thrown the wheels out of alignment.

Good point...I would say they must had been done at one stage. If the rears where on the front and wore like you where saying once they start wearing on the sides of the tryes they won't stop even if you put them on the back.

Re: tyre wear

tell your suspension place to use shims if they can .... will save you alot on $ on c/c kits and check your rear bearings like jack the car up and hold the wheel from top and bottom and try and see if there is any play in it
