P38 - 1999- Tires Issue

Recommended Posts

My front tyres are getting worn out from inner side. What could be the issue?

Check wheel alignment. May be one of the reason.

Get it aligned they can spot if you have some other issue or only alignment will fix it...

Go for Lazer wheel alignment where they can accurately spot and adjust the toe-in and camber, looks like either of them they are out. Then rotate the tires and use the rear ones in front.

Find a shop near you who has Hunter Wheel alignment as they are very accurate machine and they are very common in Dubai in good alignment shops.

Nothing beats the manual rod and rope alignment but sometimes it takes quite a few trys to get it right...

150-200 dhs, depending on your bargaining skill as it might starts from 400 and go down slowly.

Seriously, then why you drive modern engineering cars and why not bullock cart with rope and ox in front.

This hunter system is one of the most advance system to catch 1/10 of a decimal difference. I know this as I suffered in my Patrol due to BF goodrich and wasted tons of money and time on rope specialist and in end got this lazer alignment and went home with a big smile.

In those days it was quite special as only one shop in Deira had this machine who was installing tires for cooper tire from renaissance trading, but these days this hunter machines has become industry standard and I have seen them in lot of good places.

Unfortunately the old P38 is a body on ladder frame chassis with solid axels front and rear with no camber adjustments front or rear. But its worth to have to alignment and toe in and out checked.

From the workshop manual here are the factory specs

If everything checks out then you have a bent front axel and diff tube! Typical problem with patrols and jeeps who jump them alot in the desert

I dont thing option is viable for this model. 

As per my mechanic for this model its a must to do manual alignment.

I reckon the same solution was suggested for your Chevy right?
