Reader Question My company car is a 2005 Taurus, just got 4 new tires about 20,000 miles ago. Now both rear tires are completely bald, front are still like new, is it possible the car has been wrecked and has frame problems? What would cause the rear tires to wear out so fast?
If the rear tires have always been on the rear and they are worn-out…yes, you probably have an alignment type of issue. A 4-wheel alignment will be able to tell you what is wrong. The rear tire don’t move but in one direction so tire wear is really not that much of an issue unless something is bent or out of adjustment.
