    Alignment can cause this too. Have you had yours checked?

    Thanks for posting the links. I totally missed those threads. I'll add them to the list.

    I don't believe I have an alignment issue. My tires wear evenly, and the fronts wear faster than the rears. I just seem to eat tires.

    Do you think there is some value in getting it checked? A proper alignment can pay for itself by not having to buy so many tires over time but also in fuel economy and stability while driving.

    I would get them checked. There are places that will do it for free. Its actually on my list of things to do on my car.
