odd left front tire wear

Recommended Posts

The inside edge of my left front tire consistently wears faster than any where else on my tires. I've had the front end aligned more than once (and the car drives straight), but the pattern persists. I've swapped to different tire brands, and they all have worn the same. The car is a 2000 986S. It had 60,000 miles when I bought it, now I'm a 100,000. Any ideas??

That wear pattern would suggest camber is out of spec. Either your left has too much or the right has little to none. I run -1.5* camber on my fronts, but put very little mileage on the car, so I can't speak of wear. Also, if the toe is out, the tire could have a bit of push to it and would cause odd wear. Have any of the suspension components been changed out? At that mileage, the bushings and shocks would need replacement, if not done so already.
