Need Help!!!!!

Have a 2000 Cavalier. Just put new tires on it 2 months ago. The Passenger side front tire is already worn out. What could be the problem and how do I fix it?

What part of the tire is worn out? Have you had an alignment done?

is it worn across the tread or only on the inside/outside edge? wear across the tread is usually from high milage. wear on the edges can be from toe out or toe in, or from camber/castor problems. wear on both edges at the same time is usually from underinflation. wear only on the center of the tire is usually from overinflation. did you have an alignment at the time of tire installation? that usually is cheap insurance when haveing tires mounted.

Possible it just needs alignment, but from the tone I'm guessing the previous tires didn't wear out prematurely. I would certainly have all of the front end suspension and steering components inspected while it's on the alignment rack - which should be standard procedure at a reputable garage. You don't want to pay for an alignment andthen find out it's worn/failed parts.
