    I would suppose this is subject to the size of tyre you are running and the amount of tread you have left. The rear axle set up is not adjustable as it is a subframe which is held in place by subframe mounts and radius arms. The only slight adjustment you might have is by shimming the lower wishbone but this would be minor or by wear in the subframe mounts allowing the rear subframe to move. The wheel base on the S Type is 273 cm or 107.48 inches so a better way to measure the position of the rear wheel is to make sure the front wheel is central to the front round wheel arch (visually or with a tape) and then measure back to the rear wheel centre to centre.
