    ide check you upper track control arms tbh, give the top of the rear wheels a good tug and if you feel or hear it knocking/clonking then ide replace those first tbh and have your wheel alignment checked

    Is it really that visibly noticeable?
    How many miles have the rear tyres done?
    Normally camber (shoulder) wear is not visibly noticeable until the tyre is down to 6mm across the central three quarters and 4mm at the edge

    Equally, after any tyre changes and especially after any suspension component replacements, a full four wheel alignment check should be completed

    Have you lowered the suspension & not had the suspension geometry reset to take that into account...???

    It has been known on here....

    Yup sounds like the upper control arms bushes may be knackered. get them checked first, then if they are ok, may need a four wheel alignment check.
