TIRE INJURIES
TRUCK SERVICE MANUAL TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 WHEELS, RIMS, TIRES Camber: Excessive even tread wear on one or the other side of a tire indicates too much wheel camber, Fig. 15.  Unequal camber can cause one tire to wear uneven and pull vehicle to one side. Readjust camber to specifications of vehicle, see proper service manual. Fig. 15  Excessive Even Tread Wear on One Side Caused by Too Much Camber Mechanical Problems: Mechanical problems or underinflation can cause irregular  tread  wear  as  shown  in  Fig.  16.    A  single  spot  or  a series of cuppings around the circumference of a tire is usually caused  by  a  combination  of  worn  wheel  bearings,  worn  shock absorbers,    loose    tie    rods,    out    of    balance    wheel    and    tire assemblies,  or  brakes  that  grab.   Inspect  and  service  parts  as required. Caster is the backward tilt of the axle or inclination of the king  pin  at  the  top.    Too  little  caster  causes  wheel  wander  or weave resulting in irregular tread wear.  Too much caster may cause wheel "shimmy".  Unequal caster will cause wheel pull to one side, resulting in excessive irregular tread wear. Fig. 16  Irregular Tread Wear May be a Sign of Mechanical Problems Misalignment: Misalignment causes a tire to be dragged sideways over the  road.    Excessive  toe-in  produces  a  feathered  edge  on  the inside of the tread design.  Toe-out causes a feathered edge on the   out-side   of   the   tread   design.      Align   to   specifications   of vehicle. Fig. 17  Feathered Edge is Result of Misalignment CTS-2176N  Page 8 PRINTED IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
