My response in SL form: Camber is so damn stupid. Im a mechanic, and I think you are crazy for RUINING a good tire like that. What a waste.

My real response: Friggin hot. Gotta pay to play! Cant wait to see the ride all done! Next time just try flipping the tire on the rim, and youll get some more mileage outta that bad boy! :D

you should rotate your tires more often so they will last longer! camber or not!

6k miles is right at time to rotate. He would have to take the tires off the rims and switch sides every rotation.

I've been running -3 degrees, for two years now, and my NeoGens don't look like that!

Thats why I refuse to camber my wheels. I prefer having tires that last more than a year.

Someone needs to invent tires that are molded to accomodate camber.... lol

I was reading somewhere that wear that is that bad when you have camber is more from your tow being off than the camber. But camber isn't really my thing so I could be wrong, just thought I read that somewhere.

Camber (leaning to one side) will wear tires out at a normal rate, just on one side. Toe (pointing left or right) wears tires out at an accelerated rate by being dragged. Toe sucks, man.

Are both sides like that? Did you ever get an alignement? Curious to know the toe specs. My toe is a bit off on on one side (w/ 3deg Garsons), but I haven't put on enough miles to see how bad my tires are wearing.
