If you’ve been driving for a while, you’ve probably noticed that one of your tires seems to be wearing down more quickly than the others. This makes your tires wear out faster and you are more exposed to getting a flat. You may not know why this is happening, but several factors can cause uneven tire wear. 

Uneven tire wear can lead to very expensive costs in the short term. In this post, we’ll look at some of those factors and explain how to prevent them from causing damage to your vehicle.

The Following Can Wear Out Your Tires Unevenly

Improper alignment: 

When your car’s wheels are out of alignment, it puts extra stress on certain tires. This causes them to wear down more quickly than the others. You can tell if your car is out of alignment by checking how your steering wheel feels when you’re driving straight. If it pulls to one side or the other, you need to re-align it.

If you have a front-wheel-drive car and the steering wheel vibrates when driving at highway speeds, that’s also a sign that your car needs to be aligned. Alignment is important for safety and tire wear. Uneven tire wear caused by improper alignment can cause blowouts and loss of control while driving. 


When you inflate your tires too much, it causes them to bulge out and wear down more quickly on the sides. This is because the inflated tire cannot flex as much as it needs to, so it wears down the tread on the inside.

You can avoid this by checking your tire pressure regularly and ensuring that it’s within the manufacturer’s recommendations. 


When you don’t inflate your tires to their recommended pressure, it causes them to wear down more on the outside. This is because the inflated tire can flex more than an underinflated one, so it wears down the tread on the outside.

Worn-out suspension

The shocks and struts on your car wear out over time, which can cause your tires to wear down unevenly. This is because the suspension is responsible for absorbing the impact of the road, so when it’s worn out, the tires take on more of that impact.

Worn-out suspension can be caused by several things, such as driving on rough roads or hitting potholes. It’s important to have your shocks and struts replaced when they show signs of wear.
