If your Oldsmobile tires are wearing abnormally or you are experiencing looseness in the steering, the outer tie rod ends may be worn. The suspension should be inspected. After replacing any worn components, the front end alignment should be checked.

All models up to 2004 with cast aluminum wheels may experience a loss of air pressure that is due to porosity in the aluminum casting. Have your repair shop refer to GM SB-05-03-10-003B for instructions on how to repair this problem.
Proper tire inflation is critical to the safe operation of all vehicles. Tire pressure specifications can be found on an inflation sticker on the driver's door frame or in the owners manual. Fuel mileage, increased tire wear, ride quality, handling, and road noise are just a few of the problems that might arise from improperly inflated tires.
If your vehicle is experiencing abnormal tire wear, this may be due to a worn out idler arm, pitman arm, or center link in the front suspension. Worn parts should be replaced and the suspension aligned.
