My Suzuki Vitara has done 15000 miles. The rear tyres are still legal but the wear is more on the outside of the tyre than the inside. The front tyres are wearing down evenly. Has any one had this situation

Question type: General

Rear tyres wearing in evenly, more wear on the outside of the tyre than the
inside of the tyre although still legal
Mileage 15000
Front wearing down evenly

1 Answer


If your tires are wearing unevenly outside to inside on the rear, I would say the camber is not properly set. How many total miles on the vehicle, not just the tires? You most probably have some worn suspension components like the shocks, or springs. Replace those if they are indeed worn and have a proper alignment done.
