    I've seen a few posting on here including the OP issue with tyres wearing unevenly due to camber problems. What causes the camber to change from the original VX setup when the cars new ? is it caused by wear on suspension parts or what. I've never had this problem with any of my cars, I'm pleased to say that when my tyres were replace recently they had worn fairly evenly.

    Assuming the camber on the car was correct to start with... just wondered why it then goes out.

    Probably a million things - simply driving it, running it in, wear on the bushes, weight of the car settling in the suspension, every time you go up a kerb, knocking it into a kerb (although you'd probably notice it...) speedbumps and many other things...

    it could also like me i had uprated suspension and never had the camber redone so if matt has done the same that could be the reason for his tyres
