I think I see now why youre concerned with tire wear..

that guy obviously has his camber all screwed up..

you should always determine your :normal: driving height, then have your car aligned at that height...

even if the alignment is within spec and out no more then 1/2 a degree on all specs driving a car that slammed with those big meats just turning the corners will wear the tire like that. If the outward and downward force exerted on the tire under cornering that wears the tire like that. Looking at those pics the guy has negative camber not positive!

so i guess what you guys are saying is that if im gonna get them done, get them done right?......... one more question.... you say it wears on taking corners, thats because his arent set up right?....see this caprice of mine is an every day driver and im just wondering if maybe bags are for cruzing only, or they an be for an every day car just if i get them installed by the right people.....by the way...you guys know of any shops in SoCal that do bag installs?.......

thanks again for helping out

Jesse :cheesy:

LOL... that is my car fellas. And for the record, the tires have been replaced, yes, that was a shameful day, but I had a digi camera that day, and I do not normally. A So I took the pics. And for the record, the guy who posted that pic, did not note that I was hitting a side on that picture... I removed my sway bars to hit fatter side to sides, and that is probly why the camber looks so terrible. So, quite frankly, I got rousted for no reason..Thanks for the bashing newayz tho, but I can assure you it looks nothing like that anymore... Damn, at first I saw my car posted, and was like hrmmm thats tite, but then I got bashed.. Thanks fellas. :(
