Default Uneven Tire Wear

Hey Guys,

I just recently purchased new tires back in January of this year. They were original factory size on factory rims 245/24/18/ The were Continental Extreme contact DSW. I went to the tire shop to get the front one replaced since a bubble formed on it. Anyway while I was there the rears were totally shot. I have attached pics to show the damage. Half of the tires are completely worn. They said it was the rear alignment. My problem is that the rear cant be aligned anymore. Someone mentioned camber arms in a past thread. Do you think those will work or does anyone have another idea?? Any help would be great I don't want to have to spend anymore money on tires!

how much are you dropped on ? and are you on coilovers or springs ?

Yes what you need to search is 350z rear camber arms / camber bolts.

Make sure you get the kit WITH the bolts ( cant stress that enough )

you can find them on ebay.


remember theres a TOE arm and CAMBER arm , make sure you get CAMBER REAR ARMS

There's no way any springs or coilovers that can give you that kind of wear. You need to re-check your alignment.

I wouldn't put those back on the car. It looks like the belt is starting to show on the right one.

Need more details on your car. Lowered? Previously wrecked? Something isn't adding up.

Might be dropped... I had wear like that before I got the Invo's... Camber and rear alignment... I had a 255 35 20 though... IF you are lowered and dont have factory size usually dealer can't do a proper alignment... But that's what it looks like to me...

My car is not dropped at all, just a body kit. Do you think the rear springs could cause this?

Blown struts could cause this, do you have extra weight ? like a system in the back ?

No, I don't have any added weight in the car. What my car does do though is drop 2-3 inches when I have a couple of friends in the car. My friends are not extremely heavy just average size. So, do you think struts could be the issue? And if they are would you get the KYB?

Well its the only logical thing I can think of for the rears,

im lowered on Progress springs ( Cant remember off the top of my head the amount drop )

if your 2-3 inch lower, is that springs ? or aftermarket springs with cut coils ?

your only way to fix or try to correct the camber, is to get the camber arms and see if the alignment can help fix it.

I cant honestly say how the KYB GR2 feel because Ive had issues in the past with the GR2 in my other Nissan, But I am using their AGX line which is adjustable to help stiffer the rear.

They do NOT make these so you wont find them online.

I still suggest some new struts , but the camber arms should fix correct the camber.

Theres not many 6th genner with this issue, so were basically in this toghter to find the right solution

I had the exact same issue. Got the alignment at the dealer with the fact wheels and they could not get the rears in check.

Wasnt gonna deal with the "lets try this..pay for this..guessing game"

So i traded her in...fuk it.

Good luck bro..i hope it works out before you spend a mint.

I am going to go ahead and order the KYB GR2's and 350 z Camber Kit on Monday. Then I will install them and get an alignment. Hopefully that will work. Do you know anyone who has any deals on the parts I need??

I had this exact same issue about two months ago. Took of my summer rims/tires to put on the winters and had uneven tire wear on the rears...pretty much what you have.

Now my car was lowered on progress springs and doing a rear alignment did not allow for enough movement to fix the issue. What we found was that the progress springs had "settled?" and the rear was actually riding lower that it had been originally. I swapped out the rear springs for another set and they were able to get the alignment done properly and get the camber adjusted properly.

I've been running for 2 months now (highway driving everyday) and the tires appear to be wearing evenly...we'll see in the spring when I swap them again where I'm at. The bad news is I have to buy new summer tires cause the old ones are shot...pretty much like yours.
