Bad struts cause tire wear? The Leading Source of Professional Diagnostic and Repair Information.

Question: How does bad shock absorbers and struts effect tires?



Bad struts or shocks will cause uneven wear on a tire due to the
shock/struts inability to properly control the motion of the wheels
under braking and over rough roads. There can also be alignment
issues as a strut wears, which will cause uneven wear on the tires too.
