How we solved high tyre wear on our Subaru Impreza WRX
This is our own 2003 Subaru Impreza WRX which we've had since 2011. Why we have this car is worthy of an explanation. We were looking for a car to demonstrate how SuperPro can be used and what the benefits are:- precise & communicative handling, durability & alignment consistency while not creating a harsh ride quality or increased levels of cabin noise and vibration.
Those who are familiar with Impreza’s will be aware of their hunger for rubber. We have heard stories of lightly used daily drivers only getting 20K from the front tyres and more heavily modified & harder driven cars struggling to get past 10K. The issue is the effective 4WD system coupled with a powerful turbocharged engine. The result is movement in the front lower control arm rear bush allowing the wheels to toe out under acceleration & scrub-off the inside edge.
We fitted a set of Pirelli's to our vehicle not long after we bought it - so what were the tyres like after more than 30k miles
