Rear wheels are crooked

Recommended Posts

Okay, I was taking the trash out, and as I was coming back up the driveway, I just happened to look at the rear wheels of my 2000 Boxster.

Is it weird that the rear wheels seem to be a bit pitched closer to the vehicle at the top?

I don't know how to word this . . . looking at the wheels from the rear, the tops of the wheels seem to be closer to the car than the bottom of the wheels. This image is a bit exagerated, but imagine if the difference from the top and bottom was only about 1/2 inch.

Acute Negative Camber = Rapid tire wear

My rear tires lasted for just 12,000 miles. Some tell me that getting 12k is great as they only get 7500 out of their rear tires. Yikes!

I was just told by the dealer to expect possibly 15,000-20,000 miles from my Michelin PS2s on the front; maybe half that for the rears, depending on my driving habits.

Well the tire wear also depends a lot on the tires. Normal tires the the PS2's have a treadwear rating of 320 which is pretty low, so you might see those miles. Look at the side of the tire wall and you will see three ratings. Traction (Prob AA) Temperature (prob A) and Tire Wear 320 or somewhere around there.

The Bridgestone Poleposition S-03 on my talon have a tread wear rating of 180 which is even lower. I got around 6600miles on them and they were toast. It's AWD so the wear is like a FWD car, but no tire spin. They handle great and really hold all the power on the street, but **** they wear fast.

My Box has Bridgestone RE730's which stick ok, but are noisy. The blocks on the inside are worn pretty well now even though there is tread left. They are ridged from the neg camber (hi - low, hi - low) so they are gonna need to go shortly. I won't get them again, they are crap. S-03's fpr the Box next I think...
