2000 Toyota Camry - Can I drive on cupped tires?

Just had rear wheel bearings replaced. Both rear tires are cupped.
What are the ramifications of continuing to ride on the cupped tires?

If you fixed the problem that caused cupping in the first place AND the tires were not severely cupped, drive on. The damage may wear off and you will be fine. Rotate the rears to the front, however.

The cupping may get worse if the tires were too damaged but it should be apparent. You will hear it and feel it. At that point, replace the tires.

This is the cause.

This is the result.


If you like the car enough to keep it, buying new tires to replace questionable ones is a worthwhile expense.
