Re: 2001 Oldsmobile silhouette rear tire wear.

A proper 4 wheel alignment should involve aligning the vehicle with the as-driven weight. So if you have had an alignment performed since the spare tire and hitch were removed, the alignment should take that in to account. I'm guessing you have not had a proper alignment performed. You also should make sure the tires are properly inflated per the placard in the door jamb rather than per the tire sidewall.

A proper 4 wheel alignment, while not inexpensive, will still most likely cost less than a new set of tires.
