    I don't think worn out slicks would do that. Slick pressure too low, insufficient toe-in or insufficient positive caster, worn out front end parts or steering gear, worn out rod ends on rear suspension, low front tire pressure, all can cause a wander going down track....if it darts around going over bumps, then maybe bump steer.

    Yes no doubt worn out slicks will do this. When a sidewall on a tire goes away this is exactly one of the affect of that. Sidewalls go well before wear holes.

    When the sidewall goes away will it also effect my 60 ft.it went from 1.41 to 1.55,1/4 times from 10.27/28 to 10.57/60.installed a bump steer kit after 10.27 pass,this was in mid may,10.57 was last weekend.when it launches it now feels like its spinning or shaking the rear tires.i hope its not my transmission.
