    really odd tyre wear on my rear left tyre? suggestions?

    i have a MASSIVE amoutn of wear on the very, very inside of my rear left tyre...


    tyre is a goodyear eagle F1 GSD 3, and the car has been lowered 60/40, and alignment was then done at regals....


    checked the pressure in case it was underinflation that caused this, and if anything, pressure was a little high.


    so, anyone seen this beofre? is it as simple as alignment?

    and lastly, cani replace this one tyre, or do i have to replace both rear tyres at the same time?

    I didn't think there was any adjustable alignment on the back.

    Seems very strange! :?

    that's what i thought.....


    and lowering shoyuldn't affect it as 1) the rear camber is unaffected and 2) the wear is not present on both sides of the axle


    which is why i'm a little confused

    been giving any 'larger than your average' ladies a ride in your car lately rusty?

    if so, then get them to sit on the right to even things up. then after that only allow them to sit in the middle!

    :P

    Seriously, this is strange, if the alighment was done not that long ago, go back to regals.

    wont be an alignment problem, if anything its the camber thats suffering under the lowering.

    Did you just get springs or is it a full kit of springs and dampers ??

    You can just replace the one if you want, will mean you will always have an odd amount as you will need to do the other 3 before that one then

    camber doesn't change on the rear when you lower it though nikon....

    but to answer your question, i have a full kit


    might see if i can nab a single goodyr for now, then change the lot when the other wears down to get back to evens


    still none the wiser as to why it's happening though

    The camber has to change when you lower it, how can it not ??

    The rears wont be a bog a change as the fronts due to the suspension setup/design, but it has to change, it would be impossible for it to stay the same, but the vehicle be lower :?

    lol... you know me lordnikon..... i don't know any fat chicks.....



    so, the end result of those two posts is that you understand that the rear camber doesn't change yeah? still leaves me wondering what's caused it! i can't afford to go through a tyre so quickly!
