    Default Rear tyre wear

    Hi. I have had my Vectra since 2003 and since owning it the rear tyres have always worn on the inside really quickly. When I initially found it the dealer replaced the two tyres for free and sent the car off to be four wheel aligned. Since then it is has always been the same. Is this just mine or is it a common issue?

    sounds like your camber is out on the rear, have you tried a tyre and exhaust center with a computer tracking machine

    If its running at standard height, then i would nt have thought the camber's would be out, More likely as Ed says, there is a bush or two that is worn.

    Hi. It has been like it since new, and even after a recall to change the bushes. They have always worn and it was even sent off for full 4 wheel alignment. National Tyres told me it was common on Vectra's but I was worried when I looked through the forums and found no other mentions.

    4 wheel alignment won't always include the rear camber, which i would get checked.. excess negative camber does cause uneven rear tyre wear..
