I have a 2008 GT with 18,000 miles on the tires. I noticed today that all of my tires, both front and rear, are wearing on the outside edge. Can I have each tire reversed so inside is on the outside edge. I'd like to extend the tire life. Any comments?

As long as they don't have a "rotation direction arrow" on them,
or have "Mount this side facing out" stamped on sidewall,
you can switch around any way you want to.

You should also rotate tires every other oil change as well. This will extend tire life.

Yeah but unfortunately I think they pretty much all have that these days.

Removing and remounting the tires is pretty drastic, not what they usually mean by "rotation" ;)

Is the car lowered? That can cause some alignment issues but I would expect extra wear on the inside of the front tires, not the outside of all 4.

If you are an "enthusiastic" corner and curve driver and your tire pressures are usually low, that wear pattern might appear.

Say what kind of tires and rims you have.
