Q: Cupping on rear tires

asked by on

I have cupping on my rear tires.

Abnormal wear and cupping of tires can come from a misalignment of suspension components or even failed suspension components. Leaking/failed rear shock absorbers are a common item for your year model. Have a trained mechanic, like the ones here at YourMechanic, inspect the suspension system for signs of a failure or leaks and determine if your vehicle is in need of an alignment.
