Re: Think my frame may be bent.... (Vdub18)

I stay ion top of the allignment, and keep the tires well balanced. The car does pull to the left, and I imagine its about due for another alignment, but it seems that no matter how I have it alligned, the tires still wear uneven.

Re: Think my frame may be bent.... (hondastastelikechicken)

no, this happened last time. Have changed wheels and tires since then... After a while, the tires wore out, and started having mad vibrations. Had odd tire wear (on the inside of the wheel) and one spot on the tire was bald across the tire (like it was bouncing, or stopping on that one spot)

Could your frame be bent? Have you been in an accident or hit a humongous pothole? Has this been happening since you owned the car? Are you the original owner? Answering some of these questions may help you figure out why your tires are wearing funny.

Check your struts. They could be worn. This is common in cars that have quite a few miles on them. Wheels usually vibrate if lugs are loose, or wheel is bent.
