    Slammed cars and tyre wear ?

    hello all

    since having my a3 slammed i have noticed how bad the tyre wear has been for me

    i had 2 new front tyres on for about 3months and the insides are already very low

    Is there anything that can be done to either slow down or even up the inside wear on the tyre?

    I know lots of you will say stop driving like a poon but before lowing, the tyres wore down much better

    so is there anything i can do or do i just have to live with the cost of 2 sets of front a year

    cheers
