This idea caught my interest because I used to be in a stock auto stock class, where every car needs more negative camber & isn't allowed to add enough.

Then I went to their website & they're mounting the tires to add postitive camber. Why the **** would you buy this product instead of just fixing your alignment problem, or if you're flores421 replacing your wrong fitment wheels & then fixing your alignment problem?

The only market for this is this crap:

Oh, I can see for this for stock classes in autox, but that means r-compounds.

That celica in the posted video, the tires are not to the lip of the rim. Do they hold air like that? Would CV joints support the angle or is the axle made from something else?

@atomic rooster I did get it fixed I left the rear end alone because its fine. For everyone else it's -3 camber Braley noticeable it's nothing even close to that celica. I don't plan on going anymore negative for camber then what it's at.

easy way to run -3 camber in the rear (sedan) is install wagon specific struts. i recently installed a setup from an 06 wrx wagon and it gave me -3 camber in the rear, -2 camber in the front, adjusted evenly on both sides. still was able to adjust toe close to 0.

Flores,

I actually have no recommendation on a tire compatible with the camber changes I see as a current fad in urban areas. I hope this is not seen as being harsh, but I have to square up with you and say that it is one of the more ridiculous mods I have seen. I have absolutely no doubt I could take a stock WRX and run circles around one someone has cambered like that on a handling course. Suspension engineers spend a lot of time designing camber changes compatible with suspension movements. The WRX suspension is a masterful design right out of the box, for instance.

The camber trend is literally taking a camber change commonly made for steady state cornering and exaggerating it purely for styling purposes. Naturally, it instantly seems a socially impressive thing to take it to extremes. But it goes without saying that extreme change makes a car handle like absolute pure crap. I have never driven one, but have enough knowledge of tire contact patch shape, orientation and geometry, and its impact on suspension dynamics to make the comment.

What's kinda sad is that even some racing teams in certain motor sports seem to be adding a touch of "the look" in an attempt to be more appealing to their audience. Never thought I'd see the day.
