Car Tire Wear Patterns

Car Tire Wear on Inside Edge of Tire
This kind of tire wear indicates a problem with alignment. Wheel alignment defines how straight the wheel relative to the car frame, when defining how tilt the wheel is called Camber. There are types of camber namely positive, negative and no camber. When we say positive camber it means that the wheel is tilted away from the car frame, when we say negative camber it means that the wheel is tilted towards the car frame and no camber means the wheel is not tilted.

When the car tire wear mainly on the inside edge then it means that the wheel is too much tilted towards the car or have negative camber. Wheel alignment will correct the problem do this at once to avoid excessive tire wear.
