The Focus has very bad wheel alignment - to the extent where a front N/S tyre that was replaced in June is now completely bald on the inner edge after only 2000 miles.
Since the tyre was replaced, a very low pitched rumble has started eminating from the same and it gets louder the faster you travel but disappears when you drop below around 40MPH.
Please bear in mind this noise was occuring when it went in for its MOT in July which it passed with no steering/suspension related fails or, thereafter, advisories. Thus, to my mind, the noise cannot be anything other than very bad wheen alignment causing the treads to scuff the road severely (hence an almost ruined tyre after 2000 miles!).
The noise notwithstanding however, the alignment is definitely off and therefore it is going into the garage on Saturday for re-alignment which will solve that issue and HOPEFULLY the other one too. If not, I will be confused.
Thanks in advance for any helpful advice to come.
P.S. Forgot to mention, the steering doesn't "pull" in any direction however the steering wheel is squint, not sure if that makes any difference in determining the "type" of misalignment it has.
