Uneven tire wear may be due to simple over or under tire inflation or problems involving suspension components and wheel alignment. Therefore, as a precaution against tire failure, tires should be checked regularly.
At this point, if the problem is corrected with an alignment, it may be possible to wear the tire tread back into a more normal pattern over time.
