One year ago my van had all four tires changed at Wal-mart. I had wheel alignment done at a car dealer. Now my van tires slip when I accelerator or take a turn? I can feel tires slip every time when I take a turn. It
Depending on the amount of miles you have put on your tires since the installation you may need to replace them. Standard intervals on rotation of tires is every other oil change, and balance should be performed every 15k-20k miles.

You did not say how many miles you have put on these tires in a years time. Tires wear out fastest by how many miles they are driven on. Tires also come in different quality tread. Good, Better and Best is how I describe it to my customers.
Good tires wear out the fastest, and Best last the longest.
To check the tread, you can used the "Penny tick".
Stick the penny, head down between the treads of the tires, if Lincoln

Have you rotated your tires yet? Tires wear quicker in the front because that is where most of the weight of the vehicle is. If your tread is low in the front, this will affect your steering. I usually recommend a tire rotation every other oil change or twice a year. Also, what the tire is made of will have an effect on how quickly the tire wears. The harder the composite, the slower the wear. Have you checked the air pressure in your tires? Too much or too little air will affect how your tires grip the road.
