    Default Wheel alignment

    I have noticed excess wear on the front passenger side tyre. The rest have a lot of tread left on the outside and this tyre only seems to be wearing on the egde rather than anywhere else. Is this to do with the alignment of the wheel?

    classic, wheel alignment problem

    The symptons of a car out of alignment are:
    • Uneven or rapid tire wear
    • Pulling or drifting away from a straight line
    • Wandering on a straight level road
    • Spokes of the steering wheel off to one side while driving on a straight and level road,

    • If the tread is deeper on one side than the other, have your wheel alignment checked
    says it all.................

    usually happens when you kerb the car, bump up kerbs or drop into a pothole.

    Is it wearing on the outside edge? Maybe slow down round those round a bouts!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Most likely - get the old tracking reset

    It's normally the passenger side that goes out because thats the wheel that hits the kerb the most when the misses is trying to park

    Try turning you wheel full lock before mounting the kerb. This will mean the wheel with roll up the kerb and get less lateral shock.

    Also mount the kerb slower. This will help to

    don't do it at 30mph..................slow down first...........

    whilst your down there, have a feel of your tyre sidewall for any bulges. tyre side walls are only one or two ply and can bulge when you drive up the kerb..... saves a blow out........
