    Angry help, signum owners...

    Well, took my car into the dealers friday last week to sort out a few
    niggles..... After lots of checks on my 'bearing' sound on the back they
    blamed my tyres, just like markGSi said, however taking them off i was
    able to see that the camber is miles out. With the irmscher suspension
    and 19" wheels on the wear on both inside edges of the tyres is unreal
    after 10K miles. Now it cant be the wheels surely, afterall they were a
    factory option, and the suspension iss the irmy full kit and only 30mm?!!?

    Does anyone else have this problem?? i am going to get through rear tyres 3 times a year?!?! i was expecting it slightly but my tyres have a 5mm diffence edge to edge!!

    Have you had the tracking and alignment fully checked?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Yep, rear camber is a big problem on the vec c and signum. Don't know whether you'd be able to get the dealers to do it or not, but you need proper 4 wheel alignment done, especially if it's been lowered.

    even though you have lowered it by 30mm the camber angel can still be out and wear the tyres very badly and with the tyres it can give off a bearing noise

    p.s have you got the info for the s/s

    After i lowered Mrs GSi's i had the tracking and camber set on all 4 wheels as the backs were way out of camber.. a full 3 degress.. and they ate the inners..

    Same happened when i dropped the GSi, but that still eats tyres as even thou it is adjusted as far as the adjusters will take it, it still runs big negative camber on the rear.. a pair on the rear last about 10,000 miles..

    go to your local 'HUNTER' centre.. they can align it properly.

    I remember the wheels you have were in quite as state before you had them refurbed.
    If you had the alignment done, and it was done correct.
    Maybe the wheels are at fault ??????????
    I'd get them check to see if they are bent/buckled.

    as a rule, you're ( the fitter ) supposed to do the suspension work, drive the car around a bit to let it settle, then after it has had a chance to work out all it's new built in 'forces' and it's back to where it wants to sit, Then track it.. you'd be surprised the number of places that just whack on the targets and set it up anyhow....before it's had chance to settle..

    Personally.. i'd get it tracked again, and while you are there, just ask them to rebalance your wheels....while it's being done you can watch the wheel rim and see if they are buckled like SHAN SAID..

    Vehicle : insignia tourer

    Trim : elite

    Engine : 2.0 cdti 160

    Year : 2011

    Default


    when irmscher suspension kits are fitted to any car then the
    tracking,camber,toe in/out etc must be adjusted accordingly so
    thats more than likely ya problem with uneven wear on ya tyres
