Common Causes of WearIn many cases, minimizing rear tire wear comes down to maintaining proper inflation, getting regular alignment checks, and keeping your right foot in check. High wear on the rear tires is pretty typical on high powered coupes and sedans, including sedans. As all of the drivetrain forces are sent to the rear wheels, the rear tires transfer that power to the pavement during acceleration. And, of course, that push of power will wear down those rear tires over time. With high-performance cars, you'll typically see more wear as performance cars trend more toward oversteering, putting the rear axle "in play" more often during cornering and maneuvering. While this allows for better handling, it puts a disproportionate burden onto those rear tires.
Pro tip: Rotating your tires gives your mechanic a good opportunity to inspect each one for damage, check their air pressure and tread depth, and have them rebalanced if you’re noticing any issues with vibration or underinflation. Learn more about tire rotation.
