Default Alternate Tread Lug Wear

Hi! Got alignment of Bolero checked. The mechanic told that in front tyres (independent suspension) alternate tread lug wear is occuring. In laymen language (tyre mein khadde ho rahein hain). The tyres till now are in very good condition 65% tread remaining. He suggested me that this happens because of Shock Absorber or bearing malfunctioning.
Any guidance

Yes he's right. In all probability your camber setting has gone for a toss. Get the suspension work dne and then follow it up with good wheel alignment.

Thanks, got it checked. Found both shock absorbers leaking and useless. Got them changed with Gabriel things. Will monitor after effect.

Get the wheels aligned, balanced and rotated asap. I too had this with my Scorpio wheels and it turned out that the front L shocker had packed up and the R was about to. I changed all the four with Gabriel.
