What causes tire wear on the inside edge? If there is abnormal tire wear on the inside edge of the tire it means that there is a problem with wheel alignment, specifically the tilting of the wheel.

The inside edge of the tire has abnormal or unusual tire wear on the inside edge. The idea of "wheel alignment" essentially has to do with how straight the wheels are relative to the vehicle's frame. Mechanics use the term "camber" when they are talking about the tilt of a wheel. Specifically, a wheel has either :

1) positive camber.
2) negative camber.
3) no camber.

If a wheel has a "positive camber", it's tilted outward or, away from the vehicle's frame. If a wheel has a "negative camber", it's tilted inward or, towards the vehicle's frame. If a wheel has no camber, it's not tilted - this is what you want. As indicated in the problem, one (or more) of the tires is wearing mainly on its inside edge. This means the wheel is tilted inward or, has a "negative camber". An inward tilt will, of course, cause the tire to wear on its inside edge.

  1. just curious to know how often a driver is required to change his engine oil??


  2. I have tire wear (down to threads) on the inside of both of my front tires, I also have a huge shimmy when going 65mph or higher. What would cause this??

  3. Wear inside is caused by worn ball-joints. Paying $100 for an alignment and then checking parts, uhuh, nono ! Check parts first by shaking tire top to bottom for worn ball joints.Shake left to right for worn tie-rods
