On my In-Law's Merc (sorry not a Rover but i thought i'd still apply), their nearside front tyre wore down well quicker than than the otherside.

I got them to change it and ask them to do the tracking on the car- as I thuogh that is what it needed. But the fella at the tyre place said that the tracking didn't need doing and maybe they turn left more than right (how funny is that!? :lol: )

Should I get them to take it to another place to get the tracking done or would it be something else as off the top of my head I'm sure they turn right the same number of times on their usual routes.

Any Ideas?
Thank you :slap:

Agreed, my girlfriends local KwikT#t said the tracking was "spot on" and that your camber is faulty?!!

Another tyre company did a full laser alignment check and hey presto the tracking was off, 7000 miles later no passenger side tyre wear.
