Re: More worn rear tyres
Paul S mine is a 166 3.0 x reg and had the tracking done about this time last year after severe inside edge front tyre wear and whilst the tracking alignment seemed to help handling and wear it seems it has gone back to wearing abnormally, the tyre alignment chap said it may be worth changing the front tyres left to right to even any wear out say after 5k miles but i haven't bothered i have put about 11k miles on the clock since then, reminds me need to check my tyres! I think the longer term solution is powerflex bushings front and back and there is also another bearing / bush the guys have identified as a mercedes part which needs replacing i believe on the rear suspension arms, i'm not that technical but search the 166 posts for it. The cost is £125 for bushes and the bearings but obviously add a little labour as you need a press for the bushes. I reckon it will feel like a new 166 again...
