I just rotated my tires and noticed that the fronts have worn out on the inside edge of the tires, about an inch wide strip. I remember someone else having this problem a few months ago, but I don't remember what the fix was. I have Eibach Prokits with Bilstein sport shocks on my Varient (1.25" drop) and have 16" Mille Miglia MMII wheels with 35mm offset, and Bridgestone RE-730 tires with 17,000 miles on them. I expected the insides to wear out more rapidly than the outsides due to the increase in camber with lowering the car, but this is a narrow strip on the very edge of the tread that has worn down past the tread blocks. Oh, and the rears were worn more on the outside edge, almost down past the tread blocks. Strange. I did get the alignment checked after I put the springs and shocks on last year. The same place checked the front and said that the toe was within spec. I took it to the dealer who said that it takes a special alignment rack for the A4 suspension today, but they said that it "wouldn't fit on their alignment rack". Yeah right. I'm taking it to an independant shop that works on modified cars tomorrow for them to look at. Does anyone else have this problem with their lowered suspensions?
