OK. here is the situation. I got a GS300 with 19's on the back. Exact tires on the back are 275/30/19. And I have an alignment problem. It's at a negative tow and it's maxed out and can not be straightened. Therefore I constantly have blow outs. It's ripping the inner sidewalls and dont know why I'm having this problem as no one else seems to. What suggestions do you guys have for me? I have looked for a camber kit, but apparently they dont make one for a 2000 GS. Another suggestion was to go with a smaller width tire. Like 265 or 255. Would that help any? NEEDING HELP PLEASE.....

there is no camber kits for the car yet, but i am kinda surprised about the toe. is it off by a lot? the toe on my gs is also off a little but i don't have blow out problems? in fact the wear on my tires are pretty ok?

you sure the control arms and stuff are not bent right?

It's only off by a little, but I keeps putting holes on the inner sidewall of the tire. The most recent blow out, the hole was the sizes of a dime. I'm riding stock right now and I'm itching to put them back on, but I dont want to have another blowout.
