    Your car properly needs a alignment.
    Once the wear has started you cannot stop it, you would be best putting 2 new tyres on the axle then finding your local garage with a Hunter alignment machine then they can Set you car up to manufacture spec or to any other spec also give you a print out of before and after. If you cannot find a hunter machine then make sure its a 3d alignment. This is what I did and it stopped my tyre wear.
    I use a garage in Peterborough called Monarch Automotive after reading a good review on this forum worth a search for your local garage.

    Hope this helps

    That would be negative camber or toe out...

    Any chance its lowered without adjustable tie bars?
    Maybe a broken spring on one side if it isnt...

    guys,

    Marty has a golf, the rear is 100% non adjuatable.

    Marty: I'd get yourself down to a tracking place, and have the back end checked out. If it's within factory specs it shouldn't wear. Perhaps your beam is a bit out....

    Sorry its a golf as prawns said.

    I got it aligned a few months ago and I'm beginning to wonder what was actually done as im sure its been there a while? I'll get the a different garage to check over it,new tyres while in at it.

    Thanks
