    Alignment

    So I just rotated my tires and the front tire worn worn down really badly on the inside. I have no suspension modifications done to the car, the only thing I have done was a front strut tower brace. The back tires worn normal and the car is an 05 wrx with only 45,000 miles on it. I was considering getting a front end alignment, but I wasn't sure if it was something else that might make them wear like that. The car does not pull in either direction or anything else to make it feel out of alignment. Any feedback appreciated

    I had inside tire wear on my last car and an alignment fixed the problem 100%.

    This was the first time I rotated the tires. I just bought the car Last March. I just didn't think a car this new should need an alignment.

    You haven't rotated the tires since March??

    Tire rotation should be done every 5k miles or so.

    Proper tire rotation and an alignment should fix your problems. Read Big Sky's alignment stick in the suspension forum.
