    Default Need Advise: Wearing Out of Tires

    My front tires worn out 50% faster than the back. Regular rotation done at 10K/km. Why is this so?

    well its mainly cause your front tyres do more work.

    1. Cars are mainly front wheel drive. So acceleration stress is on the front wheels.
    2. brakes are always better in front. ie Disc(front) Drum(rear). or if its disc disc, the front brakes are the slightly better ones. as such when you brake its your front wheels that slow down the car more than the rear. hence tyres under more stress.
    3. When cornering, its your front wheels that do the deflection of the tyres which results in stress them. when you screech your tyres at high speed, where does the sound come from? the front right?
    Peace =)
