Rear tyre wear, outside edge both sides
Good morning all,
my girlfriends 06 mini cooper convertible has worn the outside edge of her back tyres in probably less than 2000 miles since they were last changed.
The wear is not even, in that the passengers side is a narrower strip and the drivers side is a much wider strip but both incidences are on the outside.
She bought it last June, and a few months later we noticed the issue but assumed the tyres had been close to bald when she bought it (not the sort of thing she would have looked for) so we put some new back tryres on, but in what seems like no time at all and not that many miles the same thing has happened again.
My question is, is this likley to be a simple alignment issue, or a more serious suspension issue?
Looking at the rear wheels, they are noticeably angled so the top of the wheel is further out than the bottom, which i would have thought should be the other way round for the rear of a car?
