    Default Tyre wear causes?

    Attachment 53874

    What would cause this wear on the passenger side rear wheel?

    It's only happened on this side and the other is ok?

    Looks like a suspension component is badly out of alignment!

    That tyre looks like a Michelin Pilot Sport 3
    What size is it?
    The rear of the Vectra C is known for having incorrect camber
    If the tyre has been on the rear for all of its life, and the camber has never been checked / adjusted, then I am not surprised by that level of wear

    Obviously this tyre has to be replaced NOW
    Equally, I would replace the offside rear as well
    On completion have a full four wheel alignment carried out
    Prior to this the suspension and steering should be checked for play and worn parts, these need to be replaced BEFORE the alignment is carried out

    Looks like the banana arms may have play in the bushes.

    As above, get all the joints and bushes checked for wear, then full alignment

    235/35/19 is what you need fella. Neos sell the Neuton tyres which are cheap and very good in the dry but a little skittish in the wet. Got them on mine.

    So they have what I need

    And went into town and asked about tyres, and they recommended 107+vat for Maxxis ones?

    Any suggestions on what to go for?
