Hi to all pro and sifu here,

Currently Im driving my house's Civic EG 4door
I got a very headache problem....both front tyres always rip off (inner),which mean that makan tyre's shoulder for 2 times

1st time I sent to one old shop,dad's friend....he said suspensions problem,he said have to modified bit...after 2-3months,it happened again

----Changed bushes,modified suspension and 2 brand new tyres.

2nd time I sent to neighbour's shop....he told me bushes "kong"...change again...

----Changed bushes front and back,service brake pad,2new tyres again.

Last night,I felt bit slip especially when I turn corner...
Feeling something weird on tyres,pump air and try again same thing.
After that check tyres "Walao"~Makan both front tyres again.:banghead::banghead:

Did anyone met this kind of problem before? really need pro and sifu here to guide me.
HEADACHE problem:mad::mad::mad:

I'm having this problem with my 4 door EG as well. If you lowered your car, chances are your camber are in the region of -2 till -2.5 and this will cause the unbalance wear in the inner part of the front tires.

Try to check what camber your front tires are running. Can buy adjustable camber kit to compensate the camber to a reasonable figure. Don't pump the camber, which most shops will tell u to.

Agreed as well. Checked your camber. Mine running for -3 but less drive my car. -2.5 & -3 camber setting is mostly for track use. If your car is daily driven, I think camber set at -1 or -1.5 is more than enough... :biggrin:

EGs come with slight negative out of factory and if you cut yr springs to lower the ride height, it gets more. i'm not sure how much the OEM camber is a stock standard suspension setup with stock standard ride height will still have premature inner tyre wear. a worn out upper arm will make things worse. do you have bad torque steer? if your arms and bushes are all in good condition, try over inflating the tyres. 38psi should be enough to lessen the inner wear problem.

dont do the mod the tyre shops recommended if they aren't known to know what they are doing. it involves (sometimes)heating up the upper arm and banging/pressing on it so it "stretches out" till the camber is closer to 0. downside to this is it weakens the metal n i've seen an EG limping back to a workshop from a broken upper arm n the owner said he did the arm bending at another workshop's suggestion a few months b4 it broke.

Open 18 degrees? Wut?

Err I'd dial in the camber to under -1 if you dont drive fast. I drive moderately fast so im running about -1.3 with no toe, ngam for me haha.

Just wondering... for double wishbone suspensions ah, if the shocks are all gone and the springs start sagging, does it cause negative camber? :hmmmm:

If you've got in the region of RM3k to spend i'd vote for TiTan haha, comfy, handles well and its local! No spare part problems whatsoever and tuneable.

Can give you their number if you'd like? :biggrin:

However if you're going for more of a budget thing i'd say HWL's do the job well enough, but they're not the most comfy thing around...

Hi all sifu's, recently was surveying and collecting info about stainless steel braided hose, though of putting it on my myvi. i heard it will reduce some little sponginess feel on brake pedal is it true? something like reduce the travel distance of brake pedal can start feel the pressure of hard braking already? so far keep google around found them selling these 3 brands PRO-RS, IMPROVE, AROSPEED. does this braided hose safe for use, have any side effects or life taking when long term...
