    Question Rear tyre noise?

    Hello all,

    I have a Vectra C 02 1.8 club, there has been a noise comming from the rear of the car for some time now. One tyre appeared to be stepped on the inside edge so i have replaced it but ATS said that the other one was much the same.

    VX have checked suspension and bushes and have said its the rear wheel allignment.

    I have booked it in for a rear wheel allignment Despite being told today, its NOT the wheel allignment becasue this would make the tyres SMOOTH on the inside?

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Should i just keep buying tyers

    Are you sure it wasn't just those two tyres that are at fault?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    As above but.

    Worn rear tyres can on certain surfaces can sound like wheel bearings.

    Bolding on any edge usually means allignment so not sure about yours, what make were they?

    Cool

    Tyres are budget federals.

    Had four wheel alignment on Saturday and the front left and rear right were slightly out, so I guess that may have caused the tyre wear. Going to just leave other tyre and see if it wears back even now the wheels have been aligned.

    Many people at tyre dealers / garages that I have spoken too, say itís a common problem with Vectra Cís. The rear wheel alignment just causes tyre wear.
