If your tires are wearing out faster than you anticipated or the tread wear varies from tire to tire, then it can be a sign of several different issues. The good news is that you can fix these wrongdoings with proper automotive maintenance and car care. Here are some of the most prevalent causes of premature tire wear:
If your wheel alignment is off, meaning they point at incorrect angles, then the wheels and tires on your car will take on different levels of stress whenever you drive. To prevent this from happening, you need to check your alignment as part of your regular vehicle maintenance routine and get them realigned as soon as they're needed.
Missed Tire Rotations
If you fail to rotate your tires regularly, alongside your oil changes, then they will not last as long as they're intended to. Rotating tires help them even out the wear, as your front tires naturally wear out faster than your rear.
Poor Driving Habits
Your personal driving habits can impact the wear of your wheels and tires. If you accelerate and stop a lot or run your car too rough around tight corners, you are essentially killing your tires.
Worn Brake System
Worn brake parts, to some extent, have some correlation to uneven tire tread wear. That is why it's your responsibility to have your brakes regularly inspected and serviced as a part of your routine.
Weak Suspension System
If your suspension is frail or not calibrated correctly, you won't achieve proper handling of your vehicle on the road. In simple terms, bad handling equals bad tire wear.
