Tire wear

Tire wear is a good indicator of steering and wheel alignment problems. Proper tread wear is difficult to notice, so tires are made with wear-indicator bands that indicate when the tire is nearly worn-out. On an evenly worn tire, these wear-indicator bars will eventually appear as evenly spaced bald "stripes" about 1/2 in. wide running across the tread surface. The appearance of these tread-wear bands on only one part of the tread indicates uneven wear.
