took my car to the stealership yesterday to get the paint on my car looked at. Some of you may remember last summer my car was vandalized. well the paint/clear coat started to peel in like 5 different places.
anyway, the sales guy who im pretty friendly with, noticed that my rear tires are bald… warn even acrossed the tire(not alignment related).
These are ‘brand new’ Potenza RE92’s. They were put on the car in march. 4 tires. I have NOT done a tire roation since i bought the tires. attempted to but, the shop put the lugs on too tight to break by hand. Since i bought the tires, there have benn 10000 miles put on the car. (i know… i drive everywhere though… toss in a couple of 600m trips and there you go.)
I can not think of a reason that my rear tires would be wearing faster then my front tires.
suspension wise this is what i have:
front mx-3 strut bar
sprint lowering springs
19mm rear sway bar w/ poly bushings
I dont think anything other then maybe lowering would cause the tires to wear down as much as they have. but im looking at it from the standpoint that lowering a car messes up the camber/caster and the tires while worn, wouldnt be worn even acrossed the whole tire in that case. There would be a high edge on one side of the tire or the other.
What are the possibilities that I got ‘bad’ rubber? anyone have that experience before?
