Default Adjust angle on LS400 calipers on 2GS?

I have the 98 LS400 calipers for few years and realized the tires were eaten inside. This is my 2nd set of tires already and going for the 3rd. Does anyone know that I should tell the tire shop guy a small angle adjustment should be noted when I do another aligmentor the NY City road made my tired like it?

I'm confused. How do you think it is your calipers are affecting your tire wear?

What other modifications to the suspension do you have?

i second this your calipers will never have an affect on tire wear sounds to me like you have camber wear wich is common in lowered cars or unless you have bad alignment

I just have a RCA installed and not one side that was eating inside, but both. I dont have any other mod. Just curious.

you might have a bad wheel bearing that will also cause it to camber. have an alignment shop put it on the machine and have them check your camber and see if its within factory specs. you can also check wheel bearing by lifting the wheel in the air and give it some shaking julting movement it should be solid if its ok
