mikewI own a 1998 Mazda Millenia. I'm having
lots of problems with uneven tire wear.
Have gone through 3 sets of tires in
only 45000 miles. Neither the tire shop
nor Mazda can find anything wrong. Is
anyone aware of similar problems w/
the Millenia? Any recommendations about
wear I might track down similar complaints/
solutions? Please email me if so: Thanks much, MW.
CapriRacerI hope you will take this in the sprit in which this is given.

You have gone through three sets of tires in 45,000 mile? That's 15,000 miles a set?

Do you rotate your tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles like you are supposed to?

Are you using the proper inflation pressure? Your placard, which is usually located on a door post or in the glove box, will tell you what is appropriate. Are you checking it regularly? "They" say once a month.

What about the alignment? Vehicle manufacturers have pretty large ranges, especially for toe in. Toe in ought to be within 1/32nd of an inch per side (I forget what that is in degrees.)

What about your driving? If you drive mostly in the city, making lots of turns and very few 100 miles jaunts to the country, your tire mileage will be low.

Where do you live? Southern Florida is notorious for chewing up tires.

Hope this helps.

peteHad a very similar problem with a Ford. Front tires were wearing on the outside only. Two Ford dealers said front end was within specs. Took the Ford to a small specialty shop and explained the problem. The shop foreman came to me and told me the front tires had toe-in within specs but it was max toe-in permitted. Foreman suggested adjusting toe-in to miminum permitted. Foreman warned me that doing this would reduce road feel and stability at highway speeds. Foreman was correct I noticed a little difference but the tires lasted and the uneven wear was gone.
