Fig. 15  Excessive Even Tread Wear on One Side Caused by Too Much Camber
TRUCK SERVICE MANUAL TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 WHEELS, RIMS, TIRES CHAPTER 2 - TIRES AND TUBES GENERAL Proper maintenance and careful driving will result in maximum  tire  life.    When  a  tire  is  properly  inflated  it  will provide  maximum  traction,  resist  damage  from  road  shock, tires   will   run   cooler   and   "squirm"   less   than   at   a   lower pressure.  A tire properly inflated can be injured when a chuck hole, curb or other object is struck with sufficient force.  When driving on a rough surface road slow down.  Tread wear can be    shortened    by    driving    habits    such    as,    sudden    stops, excessive  use  of  brakes,  driving  at  excessive  speeds,  and riding on edge of pavement. Air  pressure  is  what  enables  tires  to  support  a  load and proper inflation is essential for maximum tire life.  Refer to the vehicles operator manual or tire manufacturer's inflation chart     for     proper     air     pressure.          Remember     that     the recommended  pressures  are  cool  tire  pressure.    Check  air pressure before driving or after tires have a chance to cool. "Bleeding"    air    from    hot    tires    should    never    be practiced.    The  pressure  will  be  reduced,  but  an  increase  in temperature   and   pressure   will   result   as   soon   as   driving continues. TREAD WEAR PATTERNS Underinflation: The abnormal wear of the treads as shown in Fig. 12 is    due    to    underinflation.        Increase    air    pressure    to    the recommended level.  Never exceed maximum tire pressure. Fig. 12  Underinflation Causes Excessive Side Tread Wear Overinflation: Excessive  wear  in  the  center  of  the  tread  is  due  to overinflation,  Fig.  13.    Never  "bleed"  air  from  hot  tires.    The pressure  will  be  reduced  but  an  increase  in  temperature  will result as soon as driving continues. Fig. 13  Overinflation, Excessive Wear in Center of Tread Fast Cornering: Fast   cornering   causes   tires   to   wear   more   on   the shoulders of the tread as shown in Fig. 14. Slow down before negotiating curves or corners. Fig. 14  Fast Cornering Results in Excessive Wear on Shoulders of Tread CTS-2167N  Page 7 PRINTED IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
