  1. Hi everyone. My front tyres have excessively worn on the outer edges after having the tracking and alignment done a few months back. can you please tell me the optimum toe / camber setting for maintaining a good balance of grip and even wearing? When my tracking was last done the rears had excessively worn on the inner edges so I requested that they were stood up as close to vertical as was reasonable.. but now my fronts outer edges have gone!! It is a 2008 530d e60 running on spyder style 172 alloys. The front tyres are 245/35/19. I like a bit of spirited driving on occasions (it's a bmw afterall).
  2. Its obvious when you think about it, but I didn't realise the impact this would have on the handling of my 530i. I went to get some new front tyres (Pilot Sport III) and the friendly guy at tyre web asked if I wanted all my geometry checking and adjusting. At 120 quid I had a hard think about it, as I'm skint. Turns out it was the best £120 I ever spent. Everything was out, Rear toe and camber and front toe. It has transformed the car. It used to tramline and get thrown off line by bumps, and I just accepted it as part of having wide tyres and thought, this is just how these handle. How wrong was I. Transition from dead ahead to leaning into a corner is now precise and consistent, whereas it used to lurch before. So anyone who is thinking about doing their geometry, but isn't sure whether its worth the cash, I can wholeheartedly assure you, it absolutely is worth every penny. Although that does depend on how much you value a good handling car. Some people may not. That's my brainpower all used up for the day.....
