VIDEO: What Tires Tell Us About Shocks and Struts (Part 2)

The wear patterns on tires are visual representations of how the vehicle is performing and how owners are maintaining their vehicles.

In Part 1 of this series, we talked about inner and outer edge wear, as well as wear that’s occurring on both edges of the tire. In this video, we’re going to cover two more wear patterns: tire feathering and scalloped tires.
