How much camber is too much camber???

Hey All,

I just wanted to put a thread out there to discuss your cars "stance" and how you are sitting right now. What have you had to do to your accords in order to get them to sit "just right?" Feel free to input your tire/suspension specs as well.

I am currently running 18x9.75 wheels with 225/40/18 rubber all the way around. I am running -11 in the back and -6 up front with absolutely no rubbing (fyi this is a daily). I would like to run a little bit more - camber in the front in order to drop it down a bit more but have not figured out how yet without rubbing issues.

What are you all working with?

You would have to be WAYYYYY into the negative offset to even warrant camber anywhere close to where you are running. Running the same size tire I'm able to tuck 18x9.5 et27's in the rear with -4.2 and tuck half the tire up front with -2.2 with no pull anywhere without rubbing.

What exactly do you mean wolf? My wheels have a +20 offset and I had tons of issues with rubbing with a 225/40. All my fenders are even completely shaved.

Move, as in people gain interest, duh. Useless if people dont see the set up you're talking about.

I'm on 18x10 +21 with 215/40 tires. Camber i may say -3 front and -4 rear. No rubbing. Fenders and quarter panels are rolled and pulled.

I dont see why you need to run that much camber.

Simply rolled fender, no pull, no rear tab mods, no camber kits, "soft" function & form coilovers, no rubs. You're doing it wrong OP, toinkee69 over there can vouch for me. Click on the picture for mega enlarge.

Another one for the road.

Will you need more camber then me? Possibly, but on paper probably not since you are actually shaved vs my simple roll
Will you need more than double the camber then me in the rear and almost triple the camber then me in the front? That sounds pretty absurd.

3rd post is a bit much but I don't feel like editing the last one. Are you sure you aren't just rubbing on that tab in the back. I switched to and tucked 245/40/18's on stock Evo X wheel for about a block worth of driving. The reason why I didn't get further is because I was rubbing on that damn tab.

I am honestly not to sure what I was rubbing on but it was causing all types of issues in the front. My toe was is extremely off. I went through 2 brand new sets of tires in the front in under 2 months. I was having major clearance issues after the UCAs got installed. I will see if I can take it back to the alignment shop to have them adjust the camber so it is not soooo negative and see if i can still get this setup to work. It has been tough to work with thus far. Any input or feedback you all can provide is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I did a square set up of 19x10 with 265/30/19 tires on sedan. Camber was about -3* front / -5* rear. Fenders and quarters rolled and slightly pulled. No rubbing. Would of went lower if the inside wheel barrel wasn't hitting my coilover housing. Unsure on why you would need that much camber...

That was the only way the shop told me that they could get it to work...maybe i should take it to another shop...

At that height and with that suspension setup, the shop is correct. If you were to put stiffer springs on and raise the rear to match the front gap you could run less camber. A reputable shop would advise against a setup that causes wheel to quarter contact, that's why they put so much camber.
