ok folks, I'm now noticing this problem on my car. The driver side front tire is worn almost bald right at the very inner edge of the tire. It looks as if the car is riding on the edge of the tire but there is only a slight pull to the right. The passenger side front tire is not worn in this manner. The steering wheel centers a little to the left of center but will track relatively straight on the highway when there is no crosswinds. Is my alignment off or is there a problem with the tire?? I'm at 16200 miles and the tires have been rotated once. I was about to rotate them again. I'm now wondering whether I should get an alignment done before rotating? I really don't want to spend the money though if this is just a tire issue or the problem won't be fixed by an alignment. Based on the wear pattern, I'd say the camber is off, but the tire honestly looks like its riding square with the road. Can the camber be adjusted on our cars?? The wear is just so bizarre to me because the car is not driving like something is majorly off. The tires still look to have another 15k left in them and I'd like to get that. Advice?
