What Causes Tires to Wear Unevenly?

Tire tread wear plays a major role in how your vehicle performs over time. While there are many causes to uneven tire wear, including personal driving style, weather conditions in Plainfield, and terrain, there are a few actionable steps you can take to ensure your tires stay on track, such as maintaining proper tire pressure and performing routine tire alignments. Learn more with the service pros at Continental Mazda of Naperville.

Why Tire Wear Matters

Your tires are designed to grip the road, giving you maximum control during a wide variety of driving conditions. Whether you’re encountering snow or rain in Aurora, or offroading over dirt or sand, your tires need ultimate contact with the road to keep you steady. Once tire tread gets shallow or uneven, you start losing traction, which can make driving through wet or bumpy roads a dangerous challenge.

Here are two major causes of uneven tire wear, and what you can do to avoid them.

Improper Inflation Pressure

Proper tire pressure puts your car in the best possible position for easy acceleration, braking, and turning, as well as optimized weight distribution. When tires are too low or too high, they may start working extra hard to perform, causing additional wear and tear. You may start to notice your tires are uneven if your ride becomes less comfortable or feels unsteady.

Keeping tabs on your tire pressure is key to maintaining performance and even driving through Joliet. Your vehicle’s exact tire pressure recommendations should be listed in both your owner’s manual, and on the label inside of the driver’s door.


Tire alignment is a routine maintenance recommendation that makes a big difference. When tires are out of alignment, your steering and suspension components may suffer, as they will strain to give you the control you need. Tires can become misaligned from a variety of causes, including hitting a pothole, curb, or other bumps along the way.

Proper tire alignment ensures the angles of the tires are correct, giving you maximum contact with the road. To keep your tires pointed in the right direction, schedule service with a certified technician at Continental Mazda of Naperville.
