Ford Transit front inner-tyre wear

Asked by Karen Pedler, SA.

My 2006 Ford Transit van is chewing out the inside of the front tyres. At first it was only the driver's side, so I had a wheel alignment done, but now the passenger side is also doing it. The tyres have almost full tread, but they’re bald on the inner shoulders, rendering them useless. This is going to be ridiculously expensive if this continues, so any advice would be much appreciated.

It sounds like an alignment problem, or a problem with the suspension collapsing and throwing out the alignment. You need to have it checked by a suspension specialist.
