    uneven wear on rear tyers?

    just had my astra club 05 1.7 cdti fail its MOT as it had uneven wear on the rear tyers they were completly bald on the inside

    now all four were put on at the same time and the fronts were fine

    does any body know what would cause this problem and if it can be fixed as i dont want to be buying rear tyers every 4 months

    also im 32 and drive like a 62 year old so no handbreak skids or anything just motorway miles

    any thoughts?

    if its lowered, the caber will be wrong

    Sounds like the camber is out anyway

    its not lowered just a standard normal height on 15inch alloys (boring i know)

    anyway camber adjustment could be the way to go any ideas if qwik fit could do something like that and if so costs involved?

    many thanks!

    Find somewhere that does 4 wheel alignment.

    I doubt Quick fit will be able to do it.

    Have a look in your yellow pages.

    rears are the same as the mk 4 which is on a beam axle so shims are required to adjust the camber i believe.

    has the car hit a kurb side ways at all in teh snow are anything that could of damaged the axle
