A combination of a loose out tie rod and a rough left wheel bearing caused wear on the inner portion of my right front tire. Replaced and all is well. Do you have any steering wheel shimmy at highway speeds?

He said on the left rear...sounds like one of two things. First would be the camber on that wheel. Secondly would be the wheel bearing. Are you running stock wheels and tires, or something different?

oops read too fast , but yea still very possible it's a bad alignment or wheel bearing.
