    Uneven Tyre Wear

    Drivers side front has gone from 5mm thread to less than 3mm in 1 month! Dodgy tyre or tracking out?

    Had some work done in August but the garage are proving to me on saturday that the tracking is spot on! But why only 1 tyre wearing!

    wear on one side of the tyre is usually tracking, sketchy tyre maybe?

    possibly knocked the camber out mate might be worth checking the track rod ends etc for damage or buckles.

    I am, but want to make sure that i sort this before handing it to some poor sod. I would never sleep if i knew a car had faults and sold it. I'm getting the tracking checked tomorrow so if its all good i'll just buy new tyres before selling.

    Maybe looking at a 56 Plate SRi this weekend. If i part ex i'll let the garage deal with the wheel issue
