What Causes Tires to Wear Unevenly?

Rotating tires

Uneven tire tread wear can impact gas mileage, cause misalignment, and affect the overall performance of your vehicle. What causes tires to wear unevenly? Jersey City driving conditions, your driving habits, extreme weather, and other factors cause uneven tire wear. Along with regularly checking your tire tread wear, it is important to keep up to date with your tire rotation schedule, which will help promote even tread wear and actually extend the life of your tires. Learn more about what causes tires to wear unevenly, and if you are in need of expert tire care, schedule an appointment with the service team at Land Rover Englewood.



Why Tire Tread Wear Matters

Tire treads are designed to grip the road, giving you the traction and control you need no matter what the Fort Lee-area weather and road conditions may be. When tire tread wears unevenly, the tire can lose full contact with the road, making it difficult to properly control your vehicle. As noted above, routine tire rotation can help to ensure that you experience even tire tread wear, which will result in improved traction and efficiency. 

Uneven Tire Tread Wear from Improper Inflation

Tires that are properly inflated can deliver the performance you need when turning and braking, while also resulting in the proper weight distribution to ensure a smooth and safe drive on New York City-area roads and beyond. Over or underinflation can cause tire tread to wear unevenly, affecting the overall handling and performance of your vehicle. You should keep a proper check on your tire’s inflation level, being especially mindful when the temperatures are extremely hot or cold. 

Wheel Misalignment

If you hit a pothole or bump up against a curb, the wheels can go out of alignment. When the wheels aren’t properly aligned, it can negatively impact steering and cause the bearings and suspension components to experience severe wear and tear. If you experience your vehicle pulling to one side or another, or if you are getting vibrations in the steering wheel, it could indicate that your wheels are misaligned. The certified technicians in our state-of-the-art service center can check your wheel alignment and make the proper adjustments so that you’ll enjoy a smooth and confident ride.
