so umm...
i knew i had some uneven wearing/feathering on my tires
just thought it's because i have one bent wheel in the front so i need an alignment
today at tommy's, i had my wheel turned more and noticed this ... O_O

the tire is getting CHEWED UP on the inside real bad
same story on both front tires
rears are fine

tommy thinks the tire is rubbing against the spring
but wtf... how does that happen? i have the full zhp setup with OEM sport spring and zhp wheels at stock offset and stock size tires

it looks like it's happening on both the inside and outside so i doubt it's the spring. looks like it was under-inflated for awhile. is the other side like that too?

don't think it's the strut since it's on the outside too

hmm that's weird. maybe it was installed wrong in the first place lol if it's the spring perch, just throw a spacer on it and done.

but since it's an entirely stock setup, i would look for some underlying problem
