Recommended Posts

The outside edge, and only the outside edge; not the inside edge, of all 4 tires are wearing out. First set lasted approx 22K. New ste showing outside wear at 16K. have has tires aligned 3 times, rotated every 6K, balanced. Check tire pressure regularly. I know underinflation can lead to premature wear on the edges but I don't believe this is the case. Anybody else experiencing this problem.

it might help if you list the brand and make of the tires in guestion.

The original tires were brand new when I bought the car used from a Lexus dealer. They were Dunlop SP SPort 4000 A/S V rated. I replaced them with Kelly Springfield 765's H rated which carry a 50,000 warranty. The tires wear as if there is too much positive camber, although all alignments done suppossedly put the alignment to original factory spec. This is why I was wondering if other 1995 owners have experienced the same problem.

do you drive the car hard in corners

or do you ever hear the tires squeal in turns?

Actually, I'm a pretty conservative driver. Particularly since most of my driving is in heavy rush hour traffic. Driving hard waon't get me anywhere any faster. Lastly, I haven't noticed any squealing on corners but, again, I'm generally not driving the car hard into corners.

tbolen, what do you keep the tire pressure at?

I check the pressure regularly and keep it at the pressure posted on the vehicle. I know under inflation could lead to wear on the outside edges of the tires but the outside wear is only on the outer most edge of the tires and not the inside edge. I recently added more air pressure hoping this ultimately will lead to more wear on the middle of the tires
