    Default Santro Tyres Got Worn Out Too Quickly

    Hello

    My Santro 2006's tyres were replaced around 50k KM and now its on 70k KM and tyres seems like already worn out.
    Rear tyre behind passenger's seat is in a really bad shape. Mechanic said that the rear connecting rod between tyres is not in a proper shape and advised us to replace it. However we got it fixed manually. So my concern is why the tyres got worn out so quickly. Tyres are Kumho 165/65 R13. One more thing, the car starts vibrating after 80km/h's speed. What should be the intervals of wheel alignment. .

    Whenever i go to alignment shop they say that only front tyres are supposed to be aligned. So is is there any place where back alignment is also done. ?

    Loose that "alignment specialist". I'm sure there are plenty of good alignment places in Karachi. Try the Hyundai dealership.

    Thank you all. Capsat can you guide me where this shop is located? . Between i noticed today that the rear wheels are slightly bent towards right side. Well few years ago, the car underwent an accident. It was smashed hard from behind by Alto. I guess this problem is the aftermath of that accident.
