    That is possible or it is possible the rear is not in square. I have never had a side wall issue that shows what you are seeing with the GY but have with M/T tires.

    Have someone video your car making a pass. You can slow down the video while you watch it and that should help you find your problem. I bet your rearend is not square with the chassis like the guy above mentioned.

    You said dot tires. Do you drive this car on the street? If so, and you have a spool, everytime you turn one tire must slip, even if your turning slow. And while your turning your car is applying more weight to the outside.

    do you mean the wear indicator "dots" are gone? If so, that is a common symptom ( inconsistent 60" ) of worn out slicks.
