    Default uprated suspension and tracking

    hi all as i was advised on my mot that all my tyres were wearing on the inside i took it to a garage today to check the tracking. on asking what i wanted them to do he replied has it been lowered, i said yes, he said theres nothing he can do as lowering the car has an effect on the camber of the wheels and i just have to get used to it and just buy new tyres as and when??? is this right as a few people on here have done it and ive never heard anyone else have this problem? any advice would be welcome

    I thought the camber can be adjusted too, to compensate. Think the garage is pulling a fast one. Wheel size on its own should not accelerate tyre wear, otherwise we'd all be on standard size wheels. LOL

    PM sent m8 if you want to call me

    But basically, there's half of a third of a quarter of 0 garages around Stoke that can actually do 4 wheel alignment, which is what you need.

    The closest places are MPG at Middlewich, who did a superb job with mine, or a place in Stafford which I can't remember the name of for the life of me, but I'll have the name by the time you call.

    I just had mine done 3 times, the last time they got it right and felt better. They gave me a **** and bull story as to what was wrong but I think they were setting it up as standard not sport.
