    Default Signum white lines

    Hi guys just wondering if its normal for signums to white line as mine is bad over rough roads etc. I have taken the car to my local dealer to have the tracking done but the problem is still there. I did notice that the rear tyres toe in slightly at the top but vauxhall say this is normal. Could this my tyres kumho?

    Cheers

    Isn't that something you put up your nose? I take it you mean Tram line? Your on about camber on the rears mate, toe in is where the wheels look like the steering in towards themselves. The camber is perfectly normal on the rears. Are you running 19's or 17's?

    Tram lining is sadly normal on VXs. Larger wheels makes it worse.

    my 18's on the old Signum didnt tramline (with over 100k on the clock) - might be a geometry issue or maybe a worn component on the suspension somewhere ????

    tyre design plays a big part as well. I've found tyres with a V tread didnt do it as much as say a tyre with many bands round them.

    Seems to be a common problem. I had mine laser tracked all round and they are still wearing. It looks as if all suspension parts need to be perfect in order to cure this problem.
