Re: 159 / Brera / Spider tyre wear issues - VIP - Revised Information
New to the forum, and have joined after needing more new tyres!
I have an '06 159 1.9JDTM Sportswagon with 18" wheels (first ever *****, and loving it!). I replaced the rear a month ago for the first time at 25,000 miles; which is tolerable. However, I have just replaced the front a second time (first at 14,000 miles), also at 25,000 miles (11,000 miles of wear). The rear wore evenly, but the both sets of front tyres were chewed-up on the inside.
The dealer said it was due to the 'negative camber that ***** use to enhance road holding' and that '8,000 to 9,000 miles was normal'. At £190 a tyre, I hope it isnít normal!
I'm thinking of getting an independent tyre dealer to check the tracking, but I am concerned about the conflicting chat regarding camber and geometry settings.
Will an independent dealer know what to adjust the car too, or should I go back to the ***** dealer?
