Default Tire issue Pic Test

I'll try here because it didn't seem to work in the tires/wheels section. Said it had to wait for approval... Just a little issue I'm having with my alignment I guess...

I didn't see it in any other section but I approved it here. Because of the SPAM here on the forum, you can't post more than one photo at a time when you a new member with just a few posts.

I'm gonna have to say something here. I don't think a bad alignment will do that to a tire. I may be wrong. I think you have had something go wrong with the tire itself, maybe the inside belt has slipped or moved or something like that.

3d tire pic has tread separation.

I'd get a tape measure, an assistant and measure from known circumferential line (you can use tire crayon and a scribe, jack up tire and spin a line) and check alignment

I'd guess they are low quality tires; cheap tires, or should I say tires made expediently, have poor/short face belting.

I agree with CREWZIN not all this is alignment issues. Sticking caliper can cause enough heat to do this!

Also improper inflation can add to it...

From the look of the outer edges that probably is a contributing factor!
