Question Uneven Tyre wear!? - Goodyear GSD2 Eagle F1

Hi,

Today morning while cleaning my Swift (run 13k km) I noticed that my front left tyre had excess wear compared to the other 3 tires...

The tires have been rotated once till date at the 10k free service. Wheel balancing was done at 9k and wheel alignment was done twice till date if I remember right. Could anyone please enlighten me as to what could be the reason for this excess wear

My wheel spec is 205/60/R15 on 15" alloys.

Uneven tyre pressures could be a cause.

However, if you want an accurate diagnosis, you need to explain the type of wear on the tyre i.e. sides are worn out or centre is worn out, feathering etc.

Hi Rtech, I always check tyre pressure every time I fill up gas thats once a week and keep the pressure the same for all tires thats 35. The wear is on the sides and not in the center, the side facing the road to be precise, the other side has not much wear I would say its the same as the other tires!!!
