Recently lowered and chewing my tyres

Hey guys I recently lowered my cars on TA Technix coilovers and after having them for two days they have already started chewing through tyres.

I think it might be because of the profile on my tyres which are 65, but not sure is the strut was put on properly.

So I may end up buying new wheels and lower profile tyres.

Thanks Ben

Take it to a garage or tyre fitting company that has the equipment and part with your cash.

Ok, so I have sorted it and what the problem is that the holes that the bolts stretched so you can adjust the camber.

Yes you can adjust, but not with precision. The tyres need replacing mate, you need to get it all setup properly to save the new ones suffering the same fate!

Camber, new wheels and tyres wil not fix that. It's your "toe" which is doing it, which will be exaggerated by the camber.

Get a full geo done.

well my tyres are not earing away any more and issues like my steering wheel not facing north and the car pulling to one side have all been sorted.

It will be eating away at your tyres just at a slower rate, you will have to get the geometry set up every time you raise or lower the car, how quickly depends how badly it's out, get it done by some one who knows what there doing as well, after my experiences Kwik fit couldn't find there own arse in the dark with both hands.
