Re: tires breaking down on inside

how low is it?
a professional alignment won't do anything for the camber unless you have a camber kit considering everything in the system is static (yes they should be able to fix the toe to a certain extent)

options:
- go back to stock height
- get a camber kit and another alignment

recommendations:
- get rid of the 18" wheels and go back to stock or 16"-17"
- search the forum under the suspension section next time for more information on your problem.

Re: tires breaking down on inside

bad alignment...toe in will cause that to happen. most retard ass tire shops shurg it off as camber.

get smaller rims..also camber is only a problem if u get a crappy alignment or have more than around 2 degrees of negative camber.

ive got about a degree on each wheel with no wear. u just need a good alignment make sure they get the toe in as close to zero as possible. and put the tires psi a little higher..ive got stock size wheels\tires @40 psi

Re: tires breaking down on inside

wouldn't a higher psi create more wear in one spot?
depending on the tire/wheel combo your running, the psi will need to be adjusted to accommodate that.

Yes, over inflation will wear out the middle section of the tire.

yea if u put way too much in it.

and the exact psi will vairy from tire and wheel setup to tire and wheel setup
but if the pressure is too low that + neg camber and bad toe in will shred tires.

Re: tires breaking down on inside

It's weird that it only one is wearing to the inside..

Makes sure your tires aren't under inflated.. Did u ever get an alinement

The only thing I can tell you to is to rotate the front tires to the back and vice versa.. They will last longer.. You'll eventually have to get all new tires when the new fronts wear out.. But it'll give u a lot of time to save up and get a camber kit and maybe smaller rims if you want
