Hi guys I have recently noticed that my inner rear tyres are wearing a lot. I have checked the rear radius arms for play and they seem to be fine. Can anyone help? Thanks

I'd suggest having the rear tracking checked.

Tyres wearing on the inside usually due to too much positive camber but more often if very pronounced then due to negative toe (toeing outwards). As mentioned above a four wheel alignment will depict the reason.

You mean negative camber my friend.

You are quite right - how doff of me; must be the old age catching up. Must be my negative thinking :D

On the contrary your thinking was quite positive.
