    Default whats causing a cupped tire

    I have a 2001 celica gts with 120,000 miles. I just replaced the tires yesterday and noticed the drivers side rear tire was cupping. I am not sure if it was the shock absorber that went bad or if the tire lost a weight and went out of balance. Is there any way to test the shock absorber. If you think that it needs to be replaced if anyone could provide directions that would be really helpful.

    A feathered tire will be an alignment issue. A cupped tire will be a bad shock. Jounce the corner of the vehicle. If it bounces a little the shock is bad.
