My focus has a weird bald spot on the back tire. Its only affecting the inner couple inches of the tire, about 4 inches long and completely flat, like someone went sideways with the wheel at a 45* angle or something. There's no wheel shake, so i dont think the wheels wobbling. But im wondering what could have caused this? Wouldnt want the next set of tires getting this same spot after its replaced. Ive searched google to no avail, as the flat section is not from tires locking, does not affect the whole width of the tire, and the ebrake doesnt hold at all, making any sort of powersliding impossible.

If you have a bent rim, then part of the tire will wear faster.

have you had any sort of alignment? sounds like bad tow and camber.

thats the thing. its not any gradual wear.. it looks like if you draw a circle, then draw a straight line across a small section of it. its not a gradual flat spot, but rather sudden and very straight.

Wife is the sole driver, and shes very conservative on the throttle. Very granny like driving. Doesnt get pushed around corners either..
