Help with Ohlins shock

Hey guys.
I noticed some odd tire wear after my trackday. I've seen it before and heard someone say it was a damping issue but i cant remember if it was too much/little or even comp/reb. if it matters at all, im 200lbs without gear.

anyhow, this is the right side of the tire as seen from the back. the bottom leg of that groove has the top edge curled up a bit.

any help or recommendations are appreciated, also while looking at the shock im not entirely sure which adjusters are for what.

The tire looks great so far

The comp = top adjuster while rebound is @ the bottom.

Tyre looks okay to me but I've not spent much time on a track...

Your tyre looks better than this but it may help...

Tyre looks fine to me to. They will get ripped up around the tread grooves. In my limited experience bad suspension settings usually result in tyres worn unevenly or scalloped. Common to get differential tyre wear between left and right sides, depending on rider and track
