Default Camber Wear Pictures

I bought these used about six months ago.

They came with some pretty bad camber wear, but without knowing they wore down to where they were splitting.

Tire was lopsided and everything.

If anyone else has some pics, please post.

Uhmmm, sorry but what's the purpose of this thread? Just showing off camber wear?

This was a couple of months ago from 4 months of usage on brand new tires.

Just freaked me out, thought I would share.

Maybe it will keep someone from blowing out a tire like I almost did.

That's pretty bad wear and unsafe too.. Get your alignment done right after you install your tires, unless you are dropped excessively which will do that to any ride, I usually Visually check my tread once a week for any abnormalities in tread

Looks like the car needs alignment bad and Toe is way off. My rears have -4 camber and look nothing like that after a year of driving on them..

no camber on SC will Eat tires in Months of driving, All of you need to check your toe . I ride around with -3.5 degrees of camber i'm at 4k miles on a set of tires and i'm no where near needing to flip them yet.
