Do You Want Better-Performing Tires and a Safer Drive?

One of the common issues encountered by car owners is uneven tire wear. This can become a major issue because it compromises your auto’s performance. Not only does it affect the handling of your car, but it also shortens the lifespan of your tires.

That’s why it’s important to avoid uneven tire wear by rotating your tires periodically as part of your regular vehicle maintenance. You will be rewarded for the effort with better-performing tires and a safer drive.

Several factors cause uneven tire wear. It is important to understand them to avoid this issue. Breast Cancer Car Donations has compiled the following most common reasons for uneven tire wear:

1. Wheel alignment

When there’s a problem with your car’s wheel alignment, your tires will develop excessive inner or outer wear, which is often known as toe wear or camber wear. When you see this sign on your tires, take your auto to your mechanic to fix this issue.

2. Overinflation

Your tires always need to have proper pressure. If a tire is overinflated, you’ll notice that its center develops quicker wear than its edges. Refer to your owner’s manual to determine the ideal pressure for your tires. Typically, you can find a sticker on the door jamb on the driver’s side of your car telling you the manufacturer’s recommended pressure for your tires.  Most car manufacturers recommend 32 psi to 35 psi in the tires when they’re cold.

3. Underinflation

If your tires are underinflated, you’ll notice that their outer edges wear faster than their center.

4. Worn suspension

If your suspension is bent or worn out, you’ll find diagonal scalloping on your tires, which is otherwise known as cupping wear. When you see this, don’t waste time booking an appointment with your mechanic.

5. Out-of-balance tires

If you notice patchy wear on your tires, this is an indication that they are out of balance. The solution is to rotate your tires for a more even wear. You can do this every 5,000-mile intervals so you won’t forget.
