Not only are the tires on your car expensive to replace, but they also provide an important level of safety for your family. Worn tires that are ignored are an invitation to not only becoming stranded on the side of a busy and dangerous highway, but they can also catastrophically fail, causing the driver to lose control.
There are many reasons that tires wear unevenly. Excessive center wear is usually caused by over inflation; a feathered wear pattern across the front tires is an indication of tie rod wear; and cupping, or a dished pattern, makes worn shocks suspect. Even if you can’t remember the reason your tires are wearing unevenly, you should inspect the tread on a regular basis, then rely on your tire technician to make the diagnosis and correct the problem.
