unbalanced tire wear

Need help. I am experiencing uneven tire wear, right rear is wearing faster than left. Air pressure has been good on both sides. daily driver, no tracked, spirited driving. Is this an alignment issue, Michelin Pilot PS2's all around.

It could be a tow problem in the rear. It could also be the camber is off side to side in the rear. Really suggest you have a 4 wheel alignment.

Unless your spirited driving only involves left hand turns (NASCAR??) your alignment is off. Be sure to take it to someone who knows the 986. A good alignment does wonders for our cars.
