Ouch! Hope that tire isn't too new. Looks like low pressure but I have been wrong before.

From what I understand about something like what you are seeing is this. When a tire does not wear consistently around the whole tire it tends to be a balancing problem.

Ball joints can crap out at anytime. What was the pressure set at?


What would I be doing right now if I didn't have an iPhone?
