The bushes on the lower arms can be worn so that the wheels have too much negative camber and wear the inner edges. Or some pothole might have bended them a little so the toe in is not correct. Just my guess.

At a guess I'd say the rear hub bushes and probably rear trailing arm bushes need replacing. Hub bushes are quite cheap (under a tenner)but if your planning on keeping the car for a whine then go for the powerflex bushes as these wont need replacing ever again. The trailing arms are around 25-30 each.

Hi,

I have literally just had my rear tyres replaced for the same reason. The inside tread is just on the 1.6mm marker, wherease the rest of the tyre has around 3-4 mm. I had them do a 4 wheel alighment check (with the laser etc) and it came back within tolerance !

I'd had this check done some year and a half ago as well.

How come alfa don't KNOW about this (that it could be the bushes) and suggest this .. they were clueless and just said i should go and get the alignment checked (which came back within tolerane).
