    Thumbs up Tyre wear!!!!!

    Following on from this thread,i've finally got to the bottom of the problem,took it back to the garage i originally used and explained that i was still getting bad tyre wear on the N/S/R tyre,you could actually see the deflection and used my spirit level on my iphone and it was almost a degree out,they fitted the gauges and confirmed what i already knew,they adjusted every possible adjustment until it was spot on,i was very impressed and now the wheels sit the same both side's,now i just need to get some decent tyres as the fullruns i fitted are a bit twitchy and are wearing a very quick,looking at getting some Conti's or Toyo's,watch this space...........

    rainsport's were on my 17's, (now fitted to my bro's saab and still going well) i upgraded to 18'' irmscher alloy's a while ago and the conti's are just to good to miss, will be looking at RAINSPORT'S when these conti's are ready for rplacement though as they are a totaly superb tyre
