What Causes Inside Tire Wear?

Inside tire wire is caused by a number of reasons. Tire wear is a good way of knowing if there is anything wrong with your car. When there is noticeable inside tire wear, it can indicate specific problems with the front end of your car.

Wheel Alignment

A major cause of inside tire wear is a car’s front end being out of alignment. This can be caused by hitting pot holes, curbs or driving on rough roads. Tire alignment is done by adjusting the “camber” of the car which refers to how straight up and down your tires are when looking at them from the front. If the bottoms of the tires lean to the outside, you have negative camber which can cause excessive inner tire wear.
