    Advice on what could be the problem

    I've just had my tyres changed and the place i changed them were shocked how my treads were worn at the back quite back of my s3 up to the thread on one side, and not even.. they were saying that the shocks on my car wasn't doing its job or worn out... but i only put konis and eibach upgraded suspension on like 18months ago when i put the tyres on, i've put some nice michellen's on now and just worried that these will get messed up.

    any ideas what i should get looked at? is it my bushes?, shocks? allignment?
    any adivce wuold be appreicated.
    thanks chucky

    I would suggest getting your cars four wheel alignment done, mine was out by quite a lot and i still have standard suspension so if you have fitted lowering springs it may be even worse!!

    You won't be able to change the camber on the rear unless you have the adjustable tie bars mate but that's what it sounds like.

    Forge has them for very expensive. if you want the same but for a slightly better price try Awesome GTI, ordered mine 6 weeks ago (being ordered from ECS tunning in the US) just because Forge couldn't get them for a while.
