Looks like you need new shocks along with an alignment.

Don't think I would blame the tire for that one

Re: Tire Is Square? - Pound It Round !


Just put a new set of bfg duelers on my truck , put 52,000 miles on the last set . Two of them would have passed inspection ( we have annual safety inspections here) no cords showing on any of them , and tread above the wear bars on two.

Of course they are hockey pucks for tires, and I do keep the front end in good repair

How in the name of Vulcan (the Greek god of rubber) can a tire wear like that?

A bent rim, or something else that is slightly out of alignment will do that

Re: Tire Is Square? - Pound It Round !


lol. Some interesting replies.

That was on the rear, driver's side.

It was a simple shifted/broken belt that I continued to drive on for about 6 weeks while getting thru the madness of Christmas house closings.

Vehicle is just under 6,000 pounds, and between the twisty 2 lane roads, washed out gravel roads, and the fact that the cities of Rochester and Rochester Hills require all their streets - including residential development roads and driveways be made of concrete - which tears the eff out of tires.

Yukon is an overgrown station wagon and also has the autoride suspension, shocks are just fine, btw.
