I know there have been lots of posts on this subject but I can't find a solution amongst them.
My car is a Signum Design on Irmscher 19" alloys and lowered with Irmscher lowering springs (30mm, I think).
I changed the back tyres about 60,000, plenty wear left but they were worn unevenly on the inside edge and howling. Just changed them again at 71,000, same problems.
Took the car to Star in Kirkcaldy, had everything checked, tyre pressures, wear/movement in suspension components and everything OK. The guy tried to get rid of the excessive camber but said it was at the full extent of its adjustment. He would have been able to reduce the negative camber a bit but not without putting the toe way out. He suggested that I search on the internet for suspension components which would allow more adjustment but I can't find anything.
I can't afford to keep throwing away what are otherwise perfectly good rear tyres every 10,000 miles (the howling actually started about 5 - 7,000) so what do you guys suggest?
A few of my own:
Any ideas gratefully received! Sensible ones please - not like the tyre fitters - "buy another car"!
- Swap tyres front to rear (might play havoc with the TPMS though)
- Buy and fit the cheapest rear tyres I can find
- Increase the tyre pressure towards the fully laden values to reduce tread block squirming, bring more of the centre of the tread into contact with the road and hopefully allow the tyres to run cooler.
