hey fellows I am getting some excessive tire wear from the rear tires, they wear pretty badly on the inboard portion of the tire, I need some advice as to what may have caused this and solution.


You have to rotate your tires at least every 6,000 miles. It is a result of the squat or inboard tilt of the axle/half shafts.

Is your car lowered?
If so it will make the problem worse.

If you have the money or race consider camber/caster plates. You will have to talk to someone who has done this work on their car.

Is your rear end in good shape??
Bushings, links, and shocks must be in good shape and nothing loose.

Good luck.
