Shoulder Wear - Help from Dunlop

Tyre wear reveals a great deal about the way it has been maintained, as well as indicating possible mechanical problems with the car. Learning to recognise these problems early will save a great deal of trouble and money.

Under Inflation

Insufficient air in a tyre shifts the weight carried by the tyre to the edges of the tread causing the shoulders to wear more than the centre.

 

SOLUTION

Inflate to the car manufacturer’s recommendations.

Refer to the owner’s manual, or decal in the glove box, petrol flap or doorjam

Rotate tyres

Replace badly worn tyres.

Incorrect Wheel Alignment

This prevents the tyre from following the natural line of travel creating side forces which ‘wipe across’ the tread causing rapid and uneven wear.

 

SOLUTION

Check and adjust wheel alignment
