Reduced Tire Life.....

PostBy: titleist1 On: Mon Jan 09, 2017 9:57 am

Came up behind this driving down the road was going straight, not turning right! I think they may get 100 miles out of those tires!

I haven't seen a frame this crooked in a long time. Can't exactly tell from the pic but the rear driver side tire track was completely to the left of the front tire track with no overlap! Passenger side may have been the same but I wasn't in the direct sight line of that side.

Bet it pulls to the left , is scary turning to the right, and wears the left front outer and right front inner off in no time. Have seen a few Chevy pickups around here lately with that ailment.

Growing up near the waterfront, that was called "crab walking".

If it's slight, it can be caused by wheel alignment being out.

As bad as that one is, I'd say it's chassis damage.
