So, If I go back to them now(Almost 2 months), will they do re-alignment or will they ask me to get alignment done fresh again?

Edit: The problem is, even when the car goes in straight line, the steering will be tilted towards left.
Please post the alignment report and let us see if there is something specifically wrong....

Thanks Nikhil. I am not sure if I have retained it at home yet. If I have it, will post it here.

Hi Nikhil
Here is the report on alignment of my car. This was done on 23rd November. This was done at 75078 Kms and now, the vehicle has run around 200 Kms more (approximately)

Please let me know if I can get it rechecked. Feel free to say No if it is not possible

If it is feasible, I will visit on this Saturday after fixing an appointment

I dont think thats in the offering. But it would be great if they did start such a service to restore alloys. I would be one of the earliest customers for that

@Guy with the white civic with sexy rims, what say?

I rely on my friends to refurbish my rims! But on a technical note, apart from repainting, there is very little that can be done to refurbish damaged wheels. If there are deep scratches, then the only way is to repaint it.

In some cases, the scratch is so deep that it has taken off a little bit of the metal as well. I have heard that there is some way to refurbish it, but I havent heard of anyone in India who does this.

See this for how my rims look post a proper deep cleaning and a polish!

This is regarding my Ritz VDI.

Details:
It runs on Michelin XM2 185/70 R14 profile tyres which were changed within 500 kms of purchase in Apr 2013 at Madhus.

Tyres have always been filled with Nitrogen. 34 PSI in front and 31 PSI for rear wheels.

Current ODO at 57,800 kms. Last alignment and balancing was done at Madhus in Mid Jan 2017 when the ODO reading was 53,700 kms (Approx).
The car has run 5,000 kms since then.

My Query:

Last Sunday, on 30th Apr 2017, during a short trip outside of Bangalore, I noticed that for both the rear wheels, the outside wall is getting damaged i,e, chewed up. The tyre button has taken a hit to some extent.

This is peculiar only for both the rear wheels (LHS & RHS). The front tyres are absolutely fine.

I did not notice any change when driving and the car runs absolutely fine but I am worried about the damage to the tyres.

I have enclosed 3 pics of the outer wall of rear tyres.

What could be the problem. Is it a suspension problem and requires a visit to MASS or is it a Wheel Alignment and balancing problem.

Await advise from experts.

Regards

Planning to visit Madhus this weekend for possible replacement of tyre which has a bulge in the sidewall. I understand that weekend is generally crowded and I just wanted to know if any prior appointment is required?

Thanks in advance.

There is no booking as far as i know, just go as early as possible in the morning. 9 am they open, and being there by that time would help get out fast.

If you can, post the alignment report so we can check the alignment.

Technically, this can happen on slightly older, high mileage cars if the rear axle/rear wheels are out of alignment.

On a Ritz, the rear wheels cannot be aligned as such. At most, the alignment can be done with reference to the rear to ensure all 4 wheels are perfectly parallel to each other. But there is no adjustment for the rear axle in case there is a change in the alignment specifications.

If your rear toe is badly out of specification, this sort of wear may happen as the tyres are kinda scrubbing against the road... So, an alignment report will help diagnose such issues. IS the rear readings in RED? If so, no tyre shop will be able to help. You are better off going to Maruti and asking them to replace any components that require replacement.

Nikhil - just wanted to check on one thing with you.

I recently bought an Elite i20 (December 2016 model) 4 months back. On some of the posts in Tbhp, there is mention of the Elite i20's wheel alignment (or rotation centering) sensor that needs to be reset every time a wheel alignment is done. (This probably needs to be done via the OBD port using Hyundai's OBD analysis computer).

In this case would alignment still be accurate when done at Madhu's, because if the alignment sensor is not reset, the ECU will obviously not be reacting correctly to the wheel motion and dynamics?. I am not aware of anything like this for other Hyundai cars in the same price range.

Do let me know your opinion.

.
Though Nikhil would be the right person to answer it from the Madhus perspective, from what I have observed, the steering is first centered to its zero position and then the toe adjustment is performed. In such a case, it should be fine to not do any reset. However, the same would be required if the steering has an offset, or is off its center position. Only then, it will require calibration to be done. Even if it is a standard procedure for the i20 to recalibrate the steering position sensor, I dont think it should cause any problem with wheel alignment where only the toe is adjusted for such cars. Hence, the guys in Madhus should be able to do it without problems. Open to corrections on this though.

@audioholic - Thanks. Probably you are right, but I've seen posts on the forum where after the alignment at a reputed wheel alignment center, "wheel pull" has been experienced - which was corrected only after reset of the sensor at an A**.

Nikhil - if you could shed light on this, it would a great help.
