The front tires on my Ford Ranger become cupped on the inside of the tire after being towed. Anyone else have this problem or know of a way to solve this problem?

Craig, you should have the alignment on the Ranger checked. Be sure to have the TOE-IN checked and ask that the Tech set the CAMBER to the fullest allowable positive degree. Of coarse, first be sure all your suspension joints and tie rod ends are all in good shape or the alignment will be for naught.

Bet that will fix your problem.

Good luck and let us know the outcome - Glenn,

If your tow bar is not close to level from MH to toad, it could be lifting the front end making the tires cup.

Thanks Mutha, I had a guy in Whitehorse so the alignment but I'm not so sure he knew what he was doing. I'll go to the dealer and have it checked.

Make sure that the alignment check is for all 4 wheels. If a toad is not aligned all 4 wheels it may try to crab down the road. This is not a problem when just driving the toad, but the tow bar forces the vehicle to tow straight and will cause scrubbing of the tires.

The front or rear will scrub depending on which has the least traction.

This may help: Toad rear wheel mis-alignment

Thanks ALVINC, that's good info. I will have it checked when I take it in for the alignment.
