    Wheel allignment after changing to 18\'s

    Hi guys I have got 18" Zender Monaco cup alloys on my A3 and michelin pilot sport 2 rubber on them. After 2 thousand miles I have began to notice that the inside of the tyre is wearing more than the outside, I'm just wondering what I need to. I have asked a mechanic and he said that I should first try using longer bolts as the I had used the standard bolts that came with the 15" se alloys that the car came with as standard. If that fails then I should take the car to kwikfit or similar and get the allignment sorted. I have not lowered the car as yet but I would like to do this as the car is sitting a tad high and would look much better with a small drop, however I've heard that most people who do this have to get the allignment sorted anyway. So am I better off to just get the lowering springs fitted and put longer bolts and see what happens or what would you guys suggest?

    Sounds like your tracking is out mate. Take the car to a garage and get this adjusted before you wreck your tyres. Should cost approx 15 - 20 depending on where you go.
