Picked up a CPO's Cayman base about 5 months ago. I've gone 3300 miles (but traveled no where -- awesome :) ), and need new tires already, and glad to be off these Pzero.

I noticed the right side tire, on the outside, is much lower than the left. I also notice that during hard accelerations, when track control tends to kick in, the car's butt moves to the left, but not sure if the two are connected.

Any thoughts? Wheel alignment needed perhaps?

Thanks in advance for any guidance!

Left side:
28233


Right side:
28234

Not a humongous misalignment, but it did its thing. The inner side was the most worn out on both rears (MPS4S)

Are all three cars a Base? Aside from the alignment, could the drive line be responsible? I assume none of the cars are equipped with PTV?

No PTV here, but sounds like I'm going to get an alignment later this week!

Many thanks for the replies. I'll post my before alignment info here!

Maybe it's just a coincidence they were worn on the right side on at least two cars. It was just a guess anyway.

As a professional tire guy, I'd say either you've been really enjoying some left-hand highway exits, or you really need an alignment before getting your new tires.
