Tyre wear.

Post by Rotarep » Mon Jul 15, 2019 3:24 pm

I have a Niro 3 and have done almost 21000 miles, I have just had to replace my 2 front tyres as they have worn through to the cloth on the inner shoulder of both tyres, now I can here you all saying it's the tracking but my wife's Niro 3 has the very same issue, same wear on both inner shoulders of the tyres. Although I've done 21000miles my wife's car has only completed around 15000miles but as I say is showing the same wear. Does anyone else have this issue, Being a trained mechanic I find it difficult to comprehend that 2 identical vehicles have exactly the same issue. We are both experienced drivers, I drive for a living so I am not hashy or an aggressive driver. Has anyone had an issue with tyre wear. Thanks in advance.

I've not had problems with my Niro, ( just changed front two evenly worn 18" Michelin's). But, I have had problems in the past when both outer edges wore quicker than the inside. I found out that the gauge on the footpump I was using significantly over-reported the pressure - they should have been 30psi, and were actually 22psi at the garage changing the tyres. Possible in your case?
You don't say that you have actually had the tracking checked?

I hope I'll get more than that by at least a factor of 100%. Just trading in my Nissan Note 1,5dci on Mich - 46k miles from a set!!
