Wheel Allignment

Have any of you lovely people had any problems with wheel allignment??

I have just had to replace the 2 front tyres after 12,500 miles because the insides were completely bald?? Had the allignment checked and it was only 1mm - 2mm out, they guy at the garage said that shouldn't of caused so much wear?? Any ideas what could be wrong???

Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks


Mark

has he actually checked the geometry of the car or just the tracking??

if the camber is wrong on the front axle then this will affect the tyre wear.........do a lot of alignment and even brand new Subaru's are wrong out of the box.........
