Camber adjustment

Hi guys and girls
Ive recently noticed my right hand front tire is burning up on the outside edge leaving the inside looking like new
Im guessing its the camber but looking at the camber eccentric bolt it looks like its already adjusted to max !
Is there only the 1 adjustment point on them?

Have you lifted the front suspension at all? You should have plenty adjustment left on standard set up.
Toeing in, would cause same effect. ( Track rod adjustment)

If your wheels/tyres have a different rolling diameter from standard this has an effect on geometry. Given that you have some camber, changing tyre size will change the position of the contact patch...

I would say tracking is out.

You should rotate your tyres front to rear as well at about 12k miles as the fronts do tend to scrub however good the tracking.

You can dial this out a tad with adjustment.....but this is totally down the 22Ē wheel and tyre you have. If you put it back to 18ís (or oem size) I would bet you any money the problem would go away.

A mate of mine locally has a hunter full alignment machine and I have spent many hours having him explain what is going on with various geometry set ups.... you need a phd to understand him sometimes but I had the exact same issue on my ford custom when I went up in wheel size.

In laymanís (my) terms... the geometry and components were set up for your oem wheels and adding larger ones really shows the weaknesses in the set up. Itís no car and it cannot cope with the extra forces created with larger wheels and they roll over under cornering.

It can be helped with adjustments and running higher pressures.....but you will always experience uneven tyre wear on larger wheels unless you upgrade all sorts of stuff under there to cope and keep it all under control.

Shame you arenít more local as my mate could defo help... try finding a specialist locally.

Interesting as I bet your 22's O/D is less than my Bf's fitted. But sounds reasonable. I suppose the offset if different may have an effect.

I suppose the wheels could be the problem but if so i would have expected it to be on both front wheels? but the passenger side (same tire fitted at the same time) is fine!
Gona see if i can get if booked in for a check! at least then i can narrow down my search.

If it is just one side, then unless you live in Milton Keynes (roundabouts everywhere), you are right that it it is a suspension alignment issue.
It might be the camber adjustment, but equally the bottom swivel or something bent from hitting a kerb.
