unusual rear tire wear?

i got some strange tire wear issues on the rearend of my legend, the passenger side is almost bald on the inside. I have no pulling or vibration. I can usually diagnosis the front tire wear but the rear kind of has me stumped, any ideas why it would be this bad?

lol! mine does the same thing my tire shop told me its my rear control arms I took my car in to get an alignment they told me they couldn't do it because my rear control arms had play in them and it didn't make sense to align the car.

It's time for new strut assembly Mark ...cupping usually an indication of bad shock absorber.

Wow. That tire has a broken belt along with something very wrong in suspension geometry.

If it bounces a few times, then they're definitely shot. You're going to think you're driving a different car after you take care of that...

ok apparently this problem still persists after nalm I noticed my rear tires are back to having uneven wear.




now I haven't gotten this car realigned after I changed the struts could this be the cause of the persistent uneven wear?

yes always get a complete 4 wheel alignment after any work is done to any suspension component. do it to save your butt and your new tires the cost of it is worth not having to buy two more new tires, but have to say my g2 has/had the same problem inner 4 inches of tire were bald and lost traction in a turn totaled her.
