Front tires

I have 275/35 19 size tires In the front. My car was lowered by the previous owner and I.noticed the other day when I was washing it that the insides of the front tires were seriously worn out. They're even rubbing the wheel well. Are these size tires too big or can my alignment be off? Anyone have these size tires? If so , any problems? Thanks in advance.

I have 275-35 19 as well. I am lowered about an inch and a quarter in the front. I have no rubbing issues. Quite possibly the offset of the wheel is incorrect if you can see the tire rubbing at full lock.

The way you make it sound, "they're even rubbing the wheel well". I have to ask, is the worn area of the front tires ONLY that portion of the tire that rubbing the wheel well? Or is the inner edge of your tires TREAD also "seriously worn out"?
Thinking possibly that negative chamber may result with both conditions of wear if offset was close.

No! I'm the guy that says, "just the facts ma'am, nothing but the facts".
You're probably too young to remember that.
Oh yeah, just looked it up. You weren't even born yet.

Buy Eibach camber bolts and get a new alignment after the new tires. I have same tires with no problems on the Eibach Pro Kit

It ain't camber that kills the inside edge on factory macstrut cars (there's barely any negative stock), it's the caster and ackerman that does it...that and the heavy side-loading of this being a relatively heavy front engine car.

It'll chew the outsides away too, if you keep at it. Front tires never wear out evenly on a Mustang.

That is totally wrong. Mine are wearing evenly and they all should. You need a good alignment. Toe is what kills tires the most on this car, plenty of people running 1.5-2.0 degrees of negative camber and still getting decent wear.

Sounds like your getting some great knowledgeable replies. I know from our experience, when we pulled the stock wheels and tires to put on the new custom ones, I noticed that the inside of the stock tires wearing. Did a shadetree mechanic check of toe in and camber set and found camber off. After install of wheels and tires, took it to the alignment shop, she is running straight and true now. Camber was pretty far off coming from factory.
