If you are noticing any uneven wear on outer edges or center of tread even though you have been diligent in keeping air pressures correct and have not hit a curb with any force or found a mega pothole. Also good idea before purchasing any new set of tires

Beretta rear wheel alignment?

Wheel alignment should be done by a professional shop. Some places (Town Fair) will not align the rear wheels on a Beretta/Corsica due to ridiculous shop policy, but they canbe done. First, ask around to see if a shop near you installs shims for alignment. Shims of proper size/thickness will need to be installed in specific areas behind the wheel bearings in order to properly adjust the rear wheels. If alignment is extremely out-of-spec, you may have a bad wheel hub, or a bent rear beam. The shop will tell you if this is the case, as they should be replaced.
