We are having issues with rear tire wear on the inside of the tires and the outside looks new. We notice the "VW" look when we look from the back. Is it just camber??? The fronts are wearing even. Tires have 32,000 miles on them .. Mostly highway. Can we just flip-mount the rear tires??

    no, get the alignment in the rear corrected. it is out of alignment and needs to be adjusted.

    This means that your Rear Camber is to far in. The only reputable Tire chain that can align the rear Camber is Firestone. They have special U-shaped wedges that can make the tires ride more upright. Goodyear had this technology 20 or so years ago. I do not know if they have it now.
