Seeing this a very appropriate thread I'll pose my question here. I've just had two new tyres on the front end, the OS one was very badly worn on the inside edge, NS fine, nice even wear pattern. The tyre shop I went to has a Hunter, so I asked them to check tracking etc. The tracking was:
NS -0.04' OS -0.03'
NS -0.07' OS -0.07'
I was expecting the OS reading to be way out to have caused the wear I described, but looking at the suggested settings in this thread, the old settings were just about OK. In fact I may now get even more adverse wear.
For reference rear toe is in spec and so is front camber. Rear camber is out though, although balanced (same both sides) and was not adjusted.
Someone said to me, "so whats so special about an Alfa Romeo then?" I told him, "If you have to ask, you wont understand".
