Just wanted to see if anyone had a quick thought on my front tire wear. Had an alignment done about 1400 miles ago and tires were fine before hand. I am having very fast wear on my front right tire the outer 1/2 inch only. The left tire seems to be doing the same but not as bad as the right. Before I take it in to be checked again I wanted some ideas.

Thank you very much
Ed

Ed:
Sounds like your "aligner" fluffed the job. Have him recheck.

I just had the greatest repair experience last weekend after the FMCA rally in St. Paul. I waited my turn as one of the presenters, Dick Lornston of Precision Frame and Alignment in Elk River, MN, repaired 12 coaches with varikous handling and tire wear problems. He is relentless in tracking down defects of more than 3 years duration, with many previous failed attempts by mechanics and factory.

So if your guy can't fix it, drive westward.

I am dropping off my coach tonight for the recheck. My place tells me they have the newest computerized alignment equipment just installed.
Good to know Dick Lornston is out there.

Thank you much
