    Default Rear passenger inner tyre wear

    Hi I have had a squeeking noise from my rear passenger side for a while so i thought it was rust in the brakes, so at the weekend took the wheel off and tried to look for any problems with the pads or shield around disc but couldnt see any problems. Copper greased parts up that could be making the noise. As I was putting tyre on the inside of the tyre tread is almost gone and at some parts it is gone. The rest of the tyre is like new as recently replaced only 5 months ago. Couldnt see any other problems with wheel off. The squeeking noise is only when moving about 10-15mph in traffic at speed there is no noise. Any ideas have searched it and links to upper control arms, etc. The spring is new last year. What should i look for and what can i check, thanks.

    Does the squeeking occur when moving or when braking?

    Try lifting the rear offside arch, then release, is there any noise?

    Hi when its moving , but when i move at low speed if I put the handbrake on it stops squeeking thats why i thought it was the breaks but thta doesnt account for the excessive tyre wear, will have to try lift arch tonight thanks for the reply.

    Best to replace both sides - grab the top of the inside of the wheel and try pulling / jerking it and you should hear / feel knocking if top arms are goosed.
    Beware of cheap fleebay items they last 12 months at best & it's a pig of a job to do.
