Default Front Left Tire

I was getting into my car today and I noticed that my front left tire was worn down significantly more than all my othere tire. I'm talking the center tred is almost gone and the other tires have quite a bit more tread left, i have 12000 miles on the car. Any one here have any ideas on this one.

Toe could be out.. overinflated? It could possibly be the alignment too. Get it checked ASAP!

Did you check the pressures? Center tread wear sounds like overinflation. I've been running 37/34 f/r on my stockers. Just rotated them at 7600 miles and the wear on mine seem ok except for a bit more wear on the former front right inside tread. You guys think that is simply alignment?

The pressure is at 31 PSIG Cold. Same with the rest of the tires. Is that about right?... The car isn't pulling any direction at all but I'm going to get the allignment checked this weekend anyways.

I bet your alignment is ok.
Left front is always the first to go.
You have more opportunities for hard right handers at speed!
