    Default outside tyre wear

    hi all, i posted a thread on here about a humming noise comming from the rear of my 2002 vectra, i was convinced it was the o/s/r wheel bearing, i have just put a set of 17" on with 215/45/17 budget tyres, and guess what! no more bearing noise. the only thing i have noticed is that on the o/s/r the tyre seems to be getting a little bit of scrubing on the outside edge, anyone have any idea what could be causing it, cheers guy's

    Preety sure it's probably worn bushes - they cause hell when they are on their way - poor handling, uneven tyre wear when all they are is just rubber!
