Re: inner tire wear

did you get an alignment after you lowered your car? you should do that too if you haven't. that would help some of the tire wear.

Re: inner tire wear

Hondas don't have camber adjustments so you will need to do what 98BB6SH told you to do, get a camber kit.

Re: inner tire wear

Ingalls is horrible so I would just go with a cheap ebay one, just make sure it has some kind of strong metal or alloy...

Re: inner tire wear

yep, your camber numbers are prolly rediculously negative and you need to get that aligned asap....unless you like buying tires. :)

Re: inner tire wear

ill be honest. it was slammed that low when i bought it. but if i put a camber kit on it i think that my tires will hit the weel well. because rite now i have 17s with a 4o series tire an it tucks the tire with a 1/2'' between the tire and weel well. would i need to get some wheels with a different offset too?

Re: inner tire wear

I would honestly raise it up just a little and put a camber kit on it.
