4 Responses to Identifying Tear Wear Problems

  1. I have a 2000 Dodge Ram (98k miles) I bought in December, and it was a tight driving stiff riding truck. But now the front tires are cupping or scalloping on the edges of the tires, more so the insides, truck pulls to the right and also wanders on the road when breaking, decent tire noise, shakes at 45mph and at highway speeds. Steering seems loose. I also noticed that the truck seems loose when I hit bumps especially highway speeds. What could it be? Alignment, shocks, balance?

  2. Very useful tutorial.. Just when I thought I knew what I was talking about… Not so much!! I’ve always used the max pressure when filling up my tires… And now I know, Thanks!!
