View Full Version : Tire temperature vs. wear ?

After a local drive I measured the tire temperature on the inside 1/3 tread which was 104, and the outside 1/3 tread's temp. was 100. about 4 degrees diference. Can this be interpreted or equate to uneven wear on the front 1/3 inner tread. ? Would this indicate a need for alignment and adjustment of camber to more positive.. Appreciate any thoughts/comments!

JCR, I know this is going sound like a smart A-- remark,But I dont mean it that way,What diff. does it make what the tire temp. is. I would assume you are using an infored(sp) gun to check the temp. With the temp within 4 degrees I would think that was good!!!!!!:D

I don't think 4 deg is significant in itselt , but it does show an imbalance in the contact of the tire with the road and more weight concentrated on the inside. Does it mean anything?? That is the question

HI there,
No, I dont think it means anything. You can actually base tire pressure and temperature to the design and the alignment specs. You will have more heat generated at certain points in the tread area.
It is not uncommon to see differences when you are autocrossing even more than what you have now.
I wouldnt worry.
Allthebest, c4c5
