Camber Wear

Recommended Posts

Hi,

One of my front tyres has camber wear on the outer edge. I'll be getting a couple of new tyres, so can anyone recommend somewhere in the Glasgow area that'll check / adjust the alignment etc.? I've heard good things about Hypertech in Bonnybridge, and according to their website - http://www.rollingroadscotland.co.uk - they "can carry out 4 wheel alignment using the Hunter Winalign System". That means nothing to me :-) ... any ideas if it's a good system?

Also, I got a nasty (although maybe not surprising) shock when I phoned Lexus for the tyres. For the 18" Dunlop Sport Maxx, here are some quotes for getting the tyres supplied and fitted:

Various online retailers: approx. £120

Local garage: £118

Kwik-Fit: £124 each if buying 2

And Lexus Glasgow? £170.98 !! How can they possibly justify that?! Plus £92 + VAT for doing the alignment.

ask tony for a recommendation for the geo as its a long drive from Glasgow to Hemel Humpstead, get your tyres off ebay/blackcircles etc most places charge about 40-50 to fit and balance and toyo's arent a bad tyre and mine were cheaper than that

Have no idea if they are any good but don't be fooled by what equipment they have as trust me just because they have the equipment doesn't mean they know how to use it......I have been to 3 places with the hunter hawkeye system and only 1 knew what they were doing and how to use it correctly. They know who they are ;)

Of the total tyre width what percentage do you think is worn? also is the wear smooth or feathered.

The outer 25% of the tyre is completely smooth. The inner 25% has about 3mm of tread left.

Thanks in advance for any help.
