Tire probems... help me out guys
Well today some mechanic checked out my car & did an oil change. he works in a Toyota dealer... he told me that my tires were getting wasted from the sides or some s**t. he said i needed some spacers that goes in between the rim & the tire...

what?? you might just need to get your alignment done on the car. I mean I have seen spacers on aftermarket rims.

you might want to make sure you got the right size tires for your rims.

Cause my friend Jasper has G-game rims and he has spacers on his to prevent uneven tire wear. You probably most likely need them and he has 17's too!
