    I had shown this issue to Abs gurgaon this time. He claims that this is an alignment issue. All other parts are OK by doing a visual inspection. He has told me to bring the car tomorrow to get it done. I am confused now. He has quoted 450 bucks for the alignment!!

    Mine is a Punto 90 HP (March 2012 make) and i had this issue after second service. Wheel roation and wheel allignment was also done @ second service and there was no wear noticed at the time of service.
    After this i was noticing a sligh pull towards the left. So i went to get wheel allignment and balancing done where i noticed uneven tire wear on rear right tyre on the inside (was shown by the guy who was doing the job).
    I got the wheel allignment done and also got the tyre rotated inside out so the worn out side is now on the outer side.

    After this i have done 4K kms and see that the tyre wear is normal. Ofcurse the one with more wear is still same, but overall comparision or wear is now equivalent. didn't notice uneven wear on anyof the tyres. Have been inspecting visually on a frequent rate after the allignment and balancing.

    So i think from my experience, it could be a due to allignment and/or balancing issue also!!

    @ raj, you are right. After I switched over to outside people for Wheel alignment & balancing job, tyre wear and tear is normal. Btw, I observed your Punto's tyre during Vecto meet. Dont worry buddy, your Accelers are in better condition than my GT3s :evilsmile

    I too have the same issue just exactly similar to what Navpreet has apart from my car runs on 195?60/R15 apollp acelers.This seems to be a common problem to most of the cars.Many of us may have gone unnoticed the same:?:?.Wish that a proper diagnosis has been done.Can any one please throw light on this?

    Did anyone get the tyres replaced under warranty?
    My car had issue with rear wheel balancing (toe values were outside the limits) and resulted in wearing out right and left tyre, in the rear.
    Can I get them replaced by FIAT?
