chopped tires caused by tie rod?
Is this true? I took my 99 in today for a routine balance, rotate, and align. I have been religious on rotating the tires at about 6k. Today, they tell me that the rear tires are chopped and that they didn't recommend rotating the tires. When I pressed further what can cause that, they told me I had a bad tie rod and may have caused it all this time. In the past set of tires, I also had chopped tires, but they told me it was bad shocks. So before I got the new tires, I replaced all shocks. Now, with about 15-20k into the Yokohamas, I'm being told that it's chopped again. What's the deal? Really, what is the cause of chopping? And is it common in the hundy's because of its weight? Some answers would be appreciated before I plow more money into something that I don't know will or won't fix it.
