2004 Jaguar X-Type Question: Why does the inside tread of the front tires on my AWD jaguar keep wearing off?

 

Question

The inside of my front tires keep wearing off of my AWD jaguar X-type continues to wear off and I had it lined up and I told the alignment shop and they said its lined up, I do notice a vibration in the steering wheel when going about 65mph and I told them and they said they couldnt find anything wrong with it. I have replaced it with two sets of NEW tires and it continues to do the same thing. I need some advice on whats causing this problem. Thanks for any help.

    How many miles on it? As already stated the alignment shop is either missing something or you're just more profitable this way. I would recommend trying the dealer , if that's an option , or get recommendations for another alignment shop that can handle an all wheel drive Jag. Good luck.

    I have the same car with no problems with tires or vibration. I would check tire balances.

    I have had this problem for a long time and went threw 3 sets of tires .. I currently have a 04 Jaguar X-Type 2.5 manual transmission 179800
    Anyways the lower control arm bushings need to be replaced and you can just change the bushings but if you buy the control arms the bushings are pressed / loaded in so less mcjahgerimg around with torch. I have had my transfer case replaced also and 6cyl misfire in cold or wet weather. Then the coil pack caught on fire , glove box Handel
    Coolant tank , water pump and my ebreak just made me fail after I have done the rest and if you know any good tips and directions please email or post on here ....
