    Default Insignia rear tyres

    Hi all, im a bit peed off tonight as my 60mm drop rear springs came today, im swapping them out for my 40mm drop ones there is a reason for it but thats another story, but when i took my rear wheels off which were brand new 20” and new tyres about 3 months ago i was peed off because both rear tyres are seriously worn on the inside edges my thought is rear control arms, any other ideas lads???

    Cheers

    Did you get the geometry (alignment and camber) redone when you did the initial suspension drop?

    Lowing causes the camber to become more negative and then cause inner tyre wear

    You'll have to do the usual check of the rear bushes in the upper and lower "banana" arms and get the rear geometry checked afterwards

    Me thinks Dog is hinting you've posted in the wrong section of the forum.

    The clue is in the name - Insignia Photo Albums.
