Default Tire wear on outside edge (one side)

Anyone else have a similar issue where their tires have excessive wear on the edges? Both my passenger tires have worn out on the edges while the driver side is fine. Top picture shows the outer edge wear. Iíve had an alignment twice in the last 32k Miles.

Weird. Presume the tire pressures are set correctly?

Usually a sign of underinflated tires. I'm guessing your pressures are fine?

Itís been to service for the last 3 times and Iíve never seen a low pressure light. Itís odd that itís just one side. Iím having weird issues with my suspension lately and the dealers have never been able to replicate. Just wasnít sure if this was related. Every time I hit a bump on one wheel, the car feels like it shifts laterally slightly. Itís an odd feeling that I can never replicate in the service loaners.

Sounds like bushing failure on some of the suspension parts. The dealer should check your alignment, if it needs adjustment they'll find the culprit.

Could also be the pressure like BigKutta suggested. I personally run high pressure and always have to negate sloppy handling and boost tire life.

After everyoneís comment, I went to check the tire pressures and found out they were all set at 25psi! I canít believe the dealership would set my tires this low after a routine service.

I never trust the dealership on air pressures. I always check it myself and correct with my air compressor.

Now that I have 3 vehciles to take care of, tire pressure checking is becoming a pain in the ***. I am seriously considering getting my own compressor. Any good recs?

Yeah. Same here. I got it from Sears a while back. No need to get a powerful one. Anyone that works with outlet power is fine.
