Hello all,

After 28,000 kms it appears that I need new front tires for my kitty. I was wondering if people have seen such dramatic wear on the shoulders of the front tires. The rears look like I can go another 28,000 kms but the fronts are toast. Do you think this is due to too much toe-in/improper alignment or are others seeing the same thing.

22” wheels with the Pirelli P-Zeros. Pics included. As you can see the rears look good. Is there that much front wheel bias from a traction point of view? I don’t drive too hard although I love to cane it along the occasional on-ramp. You would think the rears might wear out first.

On a similar note, do you find that if you are slowly turning in a very tight circle that you get a bit of driveline wind-up and pushing of the front wheels? Like they are pushing and sliding/lurching a bit? That’s what sort of has me thinking that the alignment isn’t great.

Timbo

At first glance, I would say driving style (hard cornering). Underinflation could also contribute to that type of wear pattern. If it's neither, then I would suspect toe.

Are both fronts like that? It looks to be more than cornering as the middle are down to the wear indicators.

My front tires are more worn out than the back tires. I have the 20 inch wheels/tires. I rotated the front and back to even the tire wear.

Rotating extends life. Bad toe would do that. Underinflation would have wear on the inside too. Perhaps you plough through corners a lot?

I do run the tire pressures at the ‘Light Load’ setting so that might contribute, but you would think the rears would suffer the same fate as they have the same pressure. I have it booked for an alignment on Friday so we will see what comes of that. I should probably just slow down a bit, but where is the fun in that? I don’t think I have driven a car that corners this well while being so comfortable at the same time.
