Hi all, I've had my RS for 4 months now and I've loved every day of owning it (even when I got a flat). Anyways, maybe I drive a little bit more often than most, I managed to run through my PS4S (brand new) in 1.5 months roughly. The outsides of the fronts were balding and the insides were on cords. Rears were fine (outsides were getting a little worn), truth be told I, stupidly, didn't think I'd need to rotate my tires sub 3k miles. Has anyone else had a similar problem? most people I've talked to suggested GC Camber plates to combat tire wear.

PS4s from new? I thought it came with MPSS or MPSS Cup2’s
I got it aligned the same day I got the tires installed.
I probably do need to self reflect on my driving skill, maybe on my commute as well. I forgot to mention, my daily commute is through backroads.
I bought the car used, originally came with cup 2s, but original owner swapped em out for PS4S as Cup 2s were overkill for the street(according to the previous owner).
Haha 1.5 months, post up those pics of them tires. Im gonna say troll

^Flat tire April 25 which lead to new set of PS4S
Front right as of monday...
haven't used drift mode with these set of tires, nor any track days or autox..
Either a troll or very visible toe issue, to the point that you would smell them running hot. The tires should not wear both the inside and outside edges far in excess of the centre. First item when I got mine home was to align the suspension - at home in my own garage.
