UPDATE - The host suffered a "Catastrophic Hardware Failure" (*specifics not shared) on 01/13 and the "latest available" backup for the website and database were restored.  At this point they have been unable to recover any later versions of the database.

     We are going to give them another 72hrs to pull off a miracle and find something later than 05/21 before we fully move forward with normal forum operations.  Maybe we'll luck out, but to be perfectly honest, it's not looking good.

     It is still recommended that new members wait to register for the time being, as any new accounts created before our final decision on a path forward is made, may not exist once this is taken care of. This is also true for new topics, posts, status updates, profile & account changes, etc.

 

As always, we appreciate your patience as ask that you hold on just a little longer.

extreme camber or toe in.

Well I have ruined a good pair of tires. Not sure the issue is extreme camber or toe in, but the front tires are both worn on the inside edge. What is the cause, just an alignment issue, or inner and outer tie rods?

 

Thanks Pete.

You should try to pay closer attention to how your tires are wearing, they don't wear like that over night. At least if you have a bad alignment or worn parts and catch it quick enough you can rotate the front tires to the rear and they may straighten out.

 

But as Adam said either the alignment is off or one of the other parts he listed is worn, best to jack up the front end one side at a time and see if there is any play.

Wear on the inner shoulder of the tire indicates either excessive negative camber (tires look this this from the front: /---\ ), toe out (tires look like this from the top down, \---/ ) due to improper alignment, or severely worn suspension components (tie rod ends, ball joint, bushings) which cause excessive toe-out while driving. Worn out struts will typically cause feathering, cupping, or other types of abnormal tire wear.

 

If the tires aren't showing steel belts on the inner shoulder, rotate them to the rear immediately, go get an alignment (and have your suspension inspected for excessive wear), and you should be OK.
