i spoke to james, aka: yellow sub last night, and he told me that his tires are wearing down quit a bit. he's runnin the -5 and daily driver.Resolve said:OK question.. I want to camber.. I know -3 is ok for daily driving with out wearing out the back to much but what about -5 will it waer out the tires faster or not a big difference between -5 and -3 and stock.
oh and i drive 60 miles a day round trip to and from work if that makes a difference.

If you have to change your suspensions camber to fit wheels then IMO they dont fit to begin with. Granted you may appreciate the LOOK of a vehicle with the mods needed to stuff them under your ride.
I am not up on xB suspension, thats why I originally posted my question about style vs performance.
Rethinking...Then again if I had to roll my fenders to fit 17x11s on my Chevelle I might reword that thought above ^^^. However, that is more performance than looks and I am willing to make that sacrafice in the name of performance but not for looks.
yep -5 suck on tire wear. but for right now i could care less cause the quicker these tire wear down the sooner i can smaller one that will fit better. the inside looks like someone used a light grit sandpaper while the outside still has it's wiskers on it. also i believe i'm running -6 also because of the -1 it automatically gets from lowering.ThunderGod said:i spoke to james, aka: yellow sub last night, and he told me that his tires are wearing down quit a bit. he's runnin the -5 and daily driver.

This one???ScionScotty said:yea he flared that, and its got a ton of work into it, and it all looks top notch, but IMHO he really NEEDS new wheels to go with it. that doesnt flow for me. It would have been hotter if it was more like the extreme flared Hot Lava bB with the 19 Work VkSF (or w/e they are ).
I really dig that one too, Scotty!ScionScotty said:thats the one D! you're the best. THATS how flares should work. Too mini-truckin' kinda thing for me on that maroon one. It just doesnt rub me the right way i guess.
Gosh what I wouldnt do for that Orange bB. Ive found a set of wheels that will be a tad more aggressive than the orange one, that will fit on my car. Im just debating how much Im willing to spend to do it right, mold the flares, and have it look like its made to be there!
