What the crap...need some helpl guys!!!!!
 
Hi,

I noticed that my ride just didnít feel right and I started having quite a bit of road noise.

Checked my tires and:

Right front passenger tire is worn really bad only on the side facing away from the car (left front driverís side tire is fine)

Both rear tires are worn pretty bad on the sides facing the inside of the car

Any ideas? Could this be alignment? My car appears to track right. Balance? Could control arm bushings be the problem? Anything else? :dunno:

I only have a few hundred miles left on my warranty, so if the suspected problem is covered, I want to take my car in tomorrow.

Any help would be appreciated.

control arm and bushing problems appear on braking. alignment is only covered for the 1st 1200miles after that it's on you. even if they did, they will blame your aftermarket wheels. check if any counterbalance weights fell off your rims as a first step. but since you have tire wear issues, you should get an alignment. since you have only a few miles left on your warranty, get an inspection of the car from the dealership for everything. you would probably have to pay for the inspection out of your own pocket, about 1/2 to 1 hr tech time but it was well worth it and saved me more than 1kcad for what was found.
