Question for those who has camber wear on tires.

When do you get rid of the tires ?

I noticed my tire has about 80%+ tire tread but where the inner tread is pretty much down to 35- 40% (maybe even lower)


Are these tires still good for non-lowered vehicles ?

Yeah, if they're directional, remount them left to right.

How much camber are you running? I have -2.5 up front and I don't have any camber wear...but this also depends on the tire you are running.

Toss them when you first see any cords showing on any of the tires, thats what my friends usually do, or very close.

most people aren't aware that' it's not really camber that wears out tires, it's toe... all camber does is it causes uneven wear, means since there is heavier road contact with the cambered side it will wear that side out faster than the non cambered side of the tire because it's exposed to the pavement more than the other side.
if it was all even no camber whatsoever the whole tire would wear out the same..

toe is the thing that makes your wheel poke out in an outward/inward direction lookin from top of the car and this is what really eats your tire and causes extreme tire wear, not to mention it fcks with your electronic safety systems.

so in a sense cambering your tires a little bit will eventually allow for longer tire life, because think about it, if you hadnt cambered your wheel a little bit you would have no tread life on either side, but by cambering it, you now have tread life on the other side and are able to flip them...

and people wanna come at me cuz i'm running some badass camber like i'm an idiot, lol
