Tread wear: front vs rear


#1

I have a 2013 Hyundai Veloster, 6 speed manual. This is front wheel drive, with the original tires. I have noticed that the rear tires are wearing faster than the front (I do not rotate tires). Does anyone have a possible explanation?


#2

Is the wear even? Rear alignment could be the problem.


#3

I agree. Normally this is " abnormal". Everything being fine ? Then it’s a sure sign this model needs the tires rotated.


#4

The rear tires on a FWD vehicle usually wear at 1/3 the rate as the fronts. Check the alignment. If the alignment is OK, the factory decided it needed to screw up the alignment to fix another problem. Rotate your tires, it wears them out equally and evenly.

The answer is right there in the statement before the question !
