Hi everyone, had my S3 for about 10 months now and have come on here quite often since I bought it for advice but never registered for some stupid reason - until now I have finally done it.
I wondered if anyone had experienced the same problem I am having with my car or if they know what the problem could be so any help would be much appreciated.
When I bought the car it had recently had 4 new Goodyear F1's which I thought were noisy, I also noticed what sounded like a wheel bearing noise from the nsr, the car has only done 62000 so I decided the bearings should be fine.
This noise has got worse and varies depending on the road surface so I am sure it is the tyre on the nsr. I am changing the rear anti-roll bar tomorrow so was just looking under the back at the job and noticed the tyre on the nsr has worn strange, it is out of shape on the inside edge instead of being round it still looks round from a distance but on closer inspection it is more like a fifty pence piece only with more flats.
I don't know what could have caused this, any ideas??? Nothing looks bent and the car is very straight never been painted, it is my first 4WD car so started to wonder about the rear diff - then I got worried and started thinking about haldex controllers and pound signs etc.
As all 4 tyres are now knackered, won't get F1's again as they have worn very fast, I want to try and solve what is causing the tyre to wear before I buy 4 new tyres.
Any help/comments would be much appreciated.
