I have never heard of any tire thats 6 months old going bald, unless it was due to some idiot teenager doing "bunouts" all the time. This is a strange delema.

It has front wheel drive, so burnouts arent an issue

They are good tires, fronts are still like new. Last time I looked at the one back tire was no more than a month ago and it had alot of tread. I took the tires off cleaned the hubs. When its in the air I spin the tire, sounds like a little rubbing inside and it will stop itself anfter about the 3rd rotation

Thats really strange bro. IF there isn't a lot of weight on it. But again it is a high millage car but at the same time what kind of driving does she do? Could it be Shocks? Not enough air? Does she drive a lot that you don't know about? Do you live in a graval or dirt road?

I know my dad's Mazda 3's tires do the same thing. He took it to the Mazda dealer and they just said it was a non issue. So he just keeps buying tires..

Have you recently taken your wife to see Fast 5?

Are you sure your wife has not converted her car to rear wheel drive?

Are you sure this has nothing to do with sleepwalking?

Best of luck figuring out the issue Clinton!

1. I AM the Fast 5
2. Come on now, she only know conversions in the kitchen
3. She has to ask me for permission to Sleepwalk first
4. It will go back to her family mechanic AKA Cooter
