    Tire Cupping

    What causes tire cupping ? Every other set of tread on the outside of the tire is a diferent height. Makes a tramping sound.

    I've read that it could be one of 3
    -underinflation/or mechanical irregularities such as out-of-balance condition of wheel and/or tire and bent or damaged wheel
    -loose or worn steering tie-rod or steering idler arm
    -loose, damaged or worn front suspension parts.
    check em out. weird tire wear though eh.

    Cupping is usually caused by ..

    faulty suspension but the fact that yours is on the outside of the tires is a bit wierd given that at least the back tires should be set to a slight negative camber.
    Is it front or back (or all of them) that you have this problem with ?
    Do you have any other issues ? shimmy , pulling, excessive tramlining , brake shudder, rough ride ?
