check pressure. propper pressure is important. remember to go by what the door jam says not the tire. unless the door jam is higher than the tire.


havbe an alignment
right this verry moment... the alignment on my stang is absolutely perfect all around

my dad has been taking care of the car while ive been at college.. he says the tires are at the right pressure .. and its the outside of both of those tires not just one or the other.. where would i get an alignment would the dealer do that for me?

have you rotated tires properly?

anty tire store will do it... dealer will do it.. prepare to fork out 80-120 bucks.


if you buy 4 new tires most places usually throw in an allignment

Tire rotation is a simple yet important mainance
very often overlooked by most ppl.
I try to do it every other oil change

You figure you wanna get 60K out of your tires?
Well you have to rotate em every 15k just
to get em all the way around once amirite

Wear should only be barely visible at 7k

i was reading my haynes repair manual and it says only to move the tires from the front to the back.. no side to side rotation ..
other than that ur right tho.. somethings definitely wrong with the alignment.. ill have it looked at soon.. brakes need to be done soon too so ill rotate the tires then too
