Re: What caused damage to my front tires inner edges only

It looks like your alignment went off at some point. 32000 miles on these tires is excellent, so you probably won't get any sympathy from your dealer or Pirelli. Driving on the cords can be dangerous to your health.

I'd guess improper toe scrubbing the tire. No way the camber being off a degree or two would wear out a tire to that extreme.

When I lowered my last BMW, I (stupidly) never got an alignment after and my tires ended up looking very similar to yours.

Re: What caused damage to my front tires inner edges only

I'm seeing this issue on my 2015 JGC SRT. I took the Jeep in for my safety inspection and it failed on 3 tires because of this issue. I have 26,500 miles. PIRELLI website says the tires have a warranty of 60,000 miles. Yet why is jeep saying the average they see is 20,000 miles?

What are my chances I get Jeep to correct this and fess up to it being the camber being out of spec ?

These tires are nearly 500 a tire.

The pirelli all stands will only last 18,000 tops. Summers are even shorter tread life. Performance tires... Welcome to the club.

Re: What caused damage to my front tires inner edges only

Theres plenty of other cheaper brands out there. Ditch the run flats and get the alignment checked.

I am looking at the Yokohama Parada Spec-x. What has everyone else gone to?

Re: What caused damage to my front tires inner edges only

I get roughly 17 mpg, this is my daily driver.26,600 miles. I have not hit any pot holes or curbs. How could my camber be out our alignment? I ask question and then dealer switches to... well most people only get 20k on these tires. Then I point them to the Peril website that says they sugges 60k. Isnt there some burden thay the deal has to prove that I did something for them to mot correct this issue?

Re: What caused damage to my front tires inner edges only

You will never get more than 20k from the stock runflats. I'm not sure what this 60k warranty is. Probably does not include treadlife.

I am running those now, about 1000 miles into them. Only issue is severe rain, they are as wide as surfboards! Little tire noise, or if you compare them to stock tires, no noise! Handling is close to the same, they are a bit softer, track sport mode makes up most of it. If you switch to track the ride is just as stiff as before. No erratic tracking issues like the stock all seasons, which is what i had. Down side is the speed rating, not sure if I will see past 149+ on them, but hey, ya never know!

I have 26.6k now on the ones I am replacing. If I didnt have the alignment issue caused or what ever it is... I would get another 6 -10k on them.
