I know i have stated this before, but my acura TL was lowered 2 inches and never had tire wear issues at all...perfectly normal wear with the help of ingalls camber arms for spot on alignments...so thats not a 100% true statement.

There are people who never get alignments and are not dropped and can't figure out why they go through tires...there are folks who are dropped and have no way to correct camber and yes, they go through tires quicker. But please understand that you can have a lowered car with corrections and not suffer abnormal tire wear

these photos look so good..makes me wish i would of got an L with air..argghh..lol.

I was just curious about how different it may be. I guess if you find that sweet spot you like to keep the car with the controller, then get it aligned, would that mean that if you raised up from that point the camber would just get better from that point?
