im confused

to all you suspension gods my car is lowered with the saleen kit without camber kits on the front or rear. i put the summers on last weekend and saw that my rear tires have worn completally down from the outside in, they are wearing as if i have positive camber not negative. anyone have this happen. btw there is only 10k on the tires and i have 21k on the car, when i put them on before winter hit they were perfect with plenty of thread left.

ill get pics up when i can get over to where i store them rims.

thanks in advance

it is most likely a toe wear issue.

You will not have camber issues if you run the proper toe. My camber is at -1.9* and my wear is pretty even, because my toe is set at zero in the front. I've seen people post that they run ~2.5* of negative camber without abnormal wear, when the toe is set properly.

I'm betting you have a toe issue.

We are only guessing until we can see some alignment numbers. I suggest you get the car in for one as soon as possible if that amount of wear is occuring so quickly.... and definitely do it before you get new tires. I don't think its just a camber problem. I think there's toe issues contributing to the problem as well.
