I know my front tire needs replacing, but today out on the sea to sky it was really loose, kinda hopping in the turns, at first I thought my air pressure must be screwed but I was gunning it on the way back on hwy 1 and ussually it will hop if the air pressure is wrong if I am going at speed in a straight line.

I doubled checked tonight before coming to work, air pressure is good, I haven't done any recent suspension changes, last week at keystone and tofino no front end problems....it's been a 1,000 clicks since then....so can a worn out front tire cause this ? odo is @ 13,364 with the oem front tire....

13K isn't too bad for a front but it's certainly on it's last legs.

Suspension adjustments? What did you change?
