    replaced all 4 tyres today on my S3 with pilot S 3s and all 4 had really horrific inside edge wear, like metal cords showing, only done 2k miles on them (proxes t1s) and the man at the tyre shop put it on the laser alignment machine and all the toe and camber etc were all so bad they were OFF THE SCALE seriously it wouldnt register, close inspection the previous owner has lowered my car with new springs and not changed shocks etc, also the rear has spacers, what is my best bet? remove spacers and go back to stock? or get coilovers? i really dont want new tyres every 2 months! thanks alot matt

    You need adjustable tie bars for the rear then a decent 4 wheel alignment should get things up to scratch. If your getting bad inside edge wear on the front check your wishbone bushes too mate
