cause the front tire does not tuck in more than the rear.. when ever u lower a car usually the rear wheel bends in more resulting to more camber wear than the front.. u wont need front but u can use rear.. i have ss and i am all the way down without any camber kit but thats just me.. i like the looks and like to be LOW!

What the hells a 'chamber' kit? :p

Anyways, you basically get a camber kit to try and reduce some camber wear on the tires so they wear more evenly and last longer... My rears have MADD camber, but its all god, they barely wear, so id never really get a rear one... The fronts however... *sigh*...

Basically.... Yea.... totaled..

Now, what your looking for is how the outside of the tire is essentially new (seriously, its perfect) AND the inside is.... Yea.. shot... Not cool on pricey tires...

Drop it to 1 or no finger gap. I don't think it would be a good idea if you go less than no finger because you'll probably rub. I'm dropped to no finger gap on stock 16's and my car rubs a little bit when i make a full big U turn.

I have a question about camber kits, if i install a rear camber kit, will it raise the rear a bit? i like the way how my rear looks like right now with a bit if tires spreading and looking low.

i dont think it will raise the rear...
i think camber kit is to adjust the angel...
well i might be wrong...

and about the drop...
my rims & tires a littlbe bit "pop up" the fender tho...
so its not a good idea to drop with no gap right?

Ya... Your not really going to be rubbing the inside of the fender so much when your just going staight, i never did, but if you have that pillow spring rates on your tein and you slam it, then you could if you hit a big bump or something. I rub all too often when im turning a bit, driveways, crappy intersections, etc.. and im at some sort of speed and then theres a little bump or something, i RAIL my tire on my fender... Not much you can do about that except get stiffer springs wich i plan on doing... Even though i hear mine are stiff as ****... Psh.. theyre marshmellows

Oh, and your going to want a finger gap or so on tein with wideish tires... i have 225's but im on a +55 offset here, so yea... And it still barely clears the back, and the front just clears only beacouse of my maddd camber... You really need camber if you want to go low as hell, but it kills your tires... I need some tires that are made for a 14º camber that are harder on the inside :p
