Angry back tire wear ...help!

Can anyone help me!!! I have put THREE new sets of tires on my grand vitara in less than 45 thousand miles. 4 thousand miles ago, I had a complete alignment and two new tires put on the back of the car. Today, my right rear tire is bald. Dealership says, there is nothing they can do its the way the car pulls on one back tire. What am I to do? Buy new tires every ten thousand miles? Does this make sense???

Something in your rear suspension is either bent or worn causing that tire to not have the correct toe-in. Has it ever been in an accident or have you run over anything? Hit a big pot hole pretty hard? It doesn't take a whole lot to knock the alignment off. If your dealer could not identify the problem or correct it with a four wheel alignment, find another shop. It is not going to stop eating tires until the problem is corrected.

Default rear tire issues

Our recent purchase of a used 2009 Grand Vitara with about 18,000 miles is turning up lots of problems....one of which is the rear tires. Both rear tires are worn almost to the bottom of the tread in the middle of the tire. I checked the pressure in all 5; they are all the same brand, Yokohama, and I found them all at 33psi, as listed on the door panel. I'm scanning the forum to see if there is any reason for this, and I plan to get the dealership to check it out in a couple of days. If I learn anything I will post.

Hello Cindy,

Typically if the center of your tires is wearing out faster than the shoulders, your tire pressure is too high. If you have a local Discount Tire or America's tire near you stop in and ask them to take a look. Our stores would be happy to give you a free air pressure check and they can make some recommendations if any changes should be made. They can also look at your current tires and check the load ratings on them to see if they are correct for your vehicle.

Here's a link to our store locator: http://dt.know-where.com/DiscountTire/

Hello friend i read your problem. Its listening strange that you are spending lots of money in your Grand Vitara tires. If you go for my advice then use ceat RHINO TQ Tire. I am using in my safari 2.2VTT. I used this tire for 45K and there is no problem like this. I am giving you the link Check the specification of the tire hope your problem will sort out.Ceat RHINO TQ. If any query you have, you can check it out from the website.
Thanks

Default Replaced the buggahs!

Finally replaced the tires; of course, no H rated tires available on Oahu, so went with Firestone/Bridgestone T ratings on the back. Every place I went discussed the options and ramifications with me, and I find it difficult to understand why it is so difficult to find H tires.

So I don't think the Yokohamas were the problem...at least in my case I think it was bad/no maintenance from the previous owner.

hi, Well which companies tire you have used, because a bad brand tires wear out faster than branded one. Ask your dealer or other to help out you in this matter if you don't have much knowledge about the same
