Thread: A "chunk missing" from the tire bead?

    Just to point out, tire wear is a result of many factors not just driven wheels. Alignment, weight, condition of the dampers/bushings, pressures, etc. I imagine the Sorento is front-heavy which would probably be a major contributor to front tire wear, AWD or not.

    Yeah, of course, but I had always assumed that all things(tires) being equal, the drive wheels will experience additional tire wear during acceleration?

    Of course under braking, front tires will likely end up wearing more too as weight shifts to the front! (Front brakes are typically larger than rear brakes too)

    My S2000 has wider tires in the back and will always end up going bald before the front ones. So that’s how I assumed drive wheels probably contributed to most of tire wear.

    Now I’m curious how my new Jeep will wear out its tires… should still be front biased but if my assumption is right, all 4 tires should wear more evenly together? We’ll see.

    I was going to make some comments about tires and whatnot, but all of my comments have already been touched on by multiple people.

    First one is a hard fucking no for me.

    Second one is probably my worse in person, but I'd send it at first look. For a customer, no chance.

    So does that shit just happen sometimes on 4-year-old tires, or did the tire shop just do a big oopsie?

    It can always happen on a dismount.

    I have absolutely shredded beads on removal before. There are things you can do to prevent it, but sometimes it just isn't possible.
