Speed
Braking
Acceleration
Cornering
Maintenance:
Tyre pressure
Environment:
Road surface
Ambient temperature and climate
Vehicle:
Weight
Dynamic toe and camber settings
Tyre use:
Speed range
Wet or dry
Tyre type:
Winter or summer

Even if the axle geometry adjustment is correct with the vehicle stationary during wheel alignment, the changed vehicle height and wheel positions can cause the wheel suspension to move differently when driving.
Uneven wear is then unavoidable.
