I'm posting about my 03 wagon. The rear tires seem to be wearing abnormally fast. I read the posts about the camber problems that some people are experiencing but this wear is completely across the tread. It's like the tires go from acceptable to bald in no time.

My 00 wagon had some cupping on the rear tires that I found when they started to roar on the road. I think that may be shocks.

The 03 is my main concern though since my wife uses it to take the kids around town. I'll have my tire guys check the rear camber while they investigate the many ideas you guys are about to share with me.

Right?

Cupping is probably worn shocks. For and 03 if its not lowered I recommend the minimum amount of permitted rear toe-in which is 0.15 degrees or 0.08 inches. Please note that these numbers are for sedans not wagons which might be a little different. Ask for the minimum allowable "toe-in".
