Tire wear problem
I have 255/45r17 Cooper Zeon tires on my 92' Cougar. It seems I don't get any life out of the tires. (less than 10k) While the bald back tires are kinda self-explanatory, the fronts are what bother me. With the last two sets of tires, the inside of the front tires have worn significantly faster than the rest of the tire. In fact, 95% of the tire looks like new. I know alignment would be the first thing that would come to mind, but since the last set of tires I have had the alignment checked and it was right on the money. All I can think is that a) I'm cornering way too fast b) the suspension geometry and my 9" rims are incompatible or c) a combination of both.
Anyhow, my question is this, does anyone have the same problem running similar tires on a similar rim? I mean, I'm not getting much more than 10k out of good tires, they aren't made of soft rubber either... and at over 600$ a set I can't afford to replace them every year!
