I'm seeing a bit of excessive wear on the OUTER edges of my DiamaondBack Classic radials. Too expensive to replace prematurely. Not feathering, so I know it's not balance. Toe-in is OK and would show over the whole tread, right? There's not much else to adjust. Any ideas? Thanks. Enjoying the sun SE of Tucson --Larry

Larry -

It's your STUB AXLE BOLT INCLINATION adjustment or your CAMBER
adjustment.

See page 5/15 thru 5/17 of the Maintenance manual for adjustment
proceedures. You are correct, Toe-in should show (in most cases)
across whole tread.

Re: Re: Tire Wear

I didn't see anything there about changing the stub axle inclination either, John.
