Is that a toe issue?
And would that be safe to drive on? Especially in the winter?
Strut rub will wear on the side wall just beneath the shoulder and in rare cases on the crown. When the crown / corner of the tire is in tact is isn't strut rub.Jake99SS said:I was thinking it was strut rub but now I'm not sure. I noticed this in April of this year. I think if it were strut rub, I'd be down to the cords or have blown tires like a lot of people here. The sidewall isn't worn at all. You can even see the very edge of the tread isn't as worn. I keep the tires at 34 psi.
Jake99SS said:Interesting you say it happens to the rears. I noticed it on the fronts first so I assumed it started there. I'm getting ready to replace my tires this Fall. The place that'll be doing it is a Pedders dealer in Waukegan so maybe I'll have them do an alignment also. Was considering doing the Street I package to start with. Maybe I'll have them put on the rear camber bushings too.
I can't swing springs and struts yet so that may have to wait until Spring. I definitely want to go with springs over drag bags.
The simple questions always have the hard answers. I do agree there is a front axle component involved.Jake99SS said:Interesting you say it happens to the rears. I noticed it on the fronts first so I assumed it started there.
I'd thought about coming but didn't think I'd be able to with some friends coming up next weekend. Doesn't look like they'll be able to make it now so I *should* be able to get there.JusticePete said:Hey, please come to the tech session. It would be great to get a car with some tire wear patterns up on the rack. Michael from WT is great and detailing the forensics of tire wear. Are you coming?
ok then explain theseswmn said:Both of these pics, AFAIK, are classic examples of throttle application -> rear end squat -> increasingly negative rear cambers -> rear tires ride on inside edge of tread.
I have never personally seen the wear pattern in your 'front.jpg' before.Jbss71 said:ok then explain these
