    Default Shocked by Tyre Wear..??

    Whilst i was renewing the Auxillary belt and Tensioner on Sunday and this involves removing OSF wheel,i was shocked to see the amount of uneven wear on the inside edge of tyre..(see pics) i'm assuming the tyre is illegal as it stands so need to get this sorted ASAP.

    ?? Do you know what might be causing such catastrofic wear,to look at the tyre when its on the motor you can not tell.

    Tyre SIZE IS 205/55/16 If that has any bearing on the matter,but the rears are 215/55/16..i know different sizes,but when i bought the wheels about a year ago they where virtually new.

    For some reason pics have failed,so will try to upload later on.

    When was the last time you had the tracking done? Have you checked the lower arm for play in the bushes?

    I had the same problem.

    Went through the front tyres in about 8000 miles.

    Had 4 wheel tracking done. Car was way out and now all is running well.

    get a full alignment done rather than just tracking, its looks liek its been pulling the tyre from the rim.

    That looks a lot like the tyres did on my old Astra when the tracking was out.

    Do me a favour and post up how much you pay for tracking/alignment. Just done my front coils so got to get mine done in the next couple of weeks.
