So I bought a set of 5Zigen FN01RC wheels with Falken Ziex tires. When I met the guy the tires all looked to be in really good shape with even wear, but I must have not paid attention to the one in the very back. To my Dad and I, 1 of the tires looks to be worn down more than the other 3. I'm gonna get a tread depth gauge and I swear I think I got one laying around here somewhere but I was just wondering what yall thought? Do they look unevenly worn to yall? I know how crucial it is to keep them all worn equally and I know if I have to replace one, I have to replace all 4 which really sucks because I thought I was getting a deal, but not if I have to buy 4 new tires.
Newer looking tire that looks like the other 2:
This is the one I think looks more worn compared to the other 4 tires:
Newer on top, more worn one on bottom:
So heres the reason why Im even bothering making a thread because I know yall are probably thinking Im an idiot who already answered my own question. Well the thing is to ME, it looks like this other tire is just worn down the middle a bit like it was over inflated, but the outer treads look the same as the other 3 tires. So if thats the case then it wouldnt change the diameter of the tire, right? 1
And another thing I really dont understand is how the guy I bought them from was able to drive HIS WRX on these tires for who knows how long with no problems that I know of. Has anyone here had a major issue with their drivetrain because they drove on uneven tires? Thanks in advance for your input.
