1999 Nissan: has always heavily worn the tread..offside

This answer was rated:

I have owned my 1999 Nissan Terrano since new, it has always heavily worn the tread on the inside edge of the front offside wheel. tracking has been checked countless times. Why does it always wear so badly? Garages say it's a common problem but no useful advice.
Hi welcome to
Did you try a different Alignment shop or the same.
did they do just a front end alignment or a 4 wheel alignment
please let me know.
regards Greg

Over the years had many checks including 4 wheel at several different shops, including Nissan main dealer. Response has always been the same i.e. 'just a common problem with this model'. Haven't had it checked recently bit I stumbled on by accident and just thought i'd ask for another view, particularly as i need another new tyre after only 6000 miles. other tyres always manage 20,000 miles plus.
Well i'd say this is not normal after 6000miles then need a new tire.
I think you have a bad Camber which can be adjusted with shims
a little diagram below which you can take to the alignment shop to show what you want checking.
Is this what your tire looks like ,then its the camber.
need more assistance please let me know.
