Question Uneven tyre wear

Hi all my front tyre is wearing out on the inside edge what does this mean apart from replacing it lol ... What I mean is , is it tracking or balance ?


Cheers

make sure has well if you do have the tracking done that they check all the ball joints and also bear in mind if the tyres are wearing on both sides then they are under inflated.
