View Full Version : 1992 240sx: inside edge of tires wearing out after acciden

04-30-2008, 09:42 PM
A semi truck wacked my front passenger tire as it merged into my lane.
After that, both my front tires started wearing out like crazy on inside edge. The ball joint on tire that got hit looks all crumpled. not sure what is my problem.

the camber is actually around 2.5 on both my front tires(spec is around 1.5)
tthe front tires are toe-out by 20mm . should be toe-in by a small amount.

Ah have you tried replacing the damaged ball joint? Check your tie rod ends as well. Also inspect LCA's.

Wrong section.

Also, take it to Les Schwabb and have them look at it. My girlfriend said she did that and they diagnosed it for free. She told me what they told her was wrong, I fixed it, and they aligned it. Maybe they don't do that free for everyone.. but if your ball joint looks messed up, it probably is.

Your camber is not whats wearing your tires out, its your toe out. Toe kills tires a lot faster than camber does. replace the balljoint and have a 4 wheel alignment done.
