Re: tyre wear

If your car is lowered - lack of a camber kit? $#!+ wheel alignment? control arms? bah who knows, hard to tell without looking at it!

Cheers

Re: tyre wear

It may need new ball joints, or tie rod end.
Or it may just be a bad alignment.

Re: tyre wear

Or using power steering to turn the wheels while the car is stationery.

Re: tyre wear

You have to much negative camber on that side.

True, but he would also notice other symptons, like vague steering, wander, etc.
