Hey gang!! I'm looking to see what some others are running for alignment specs.
I have (and still am) been replacing a lot of front suspension parts this past week in prep for a 1000 mile plus family trip. Obviously I need to get the front aligned once I finish it up. The tires on all 4 corners will be replaced at the time as well.
The front tires didn't look that bad but they have the main wear in the middle of the tires. It's even between the right and left and with the amount of parts that needed to be replaced, I'm not surprised on how they wore out in 2 years. I'm just glad that they wore evenly between the two.
The rears on the other hand, they have their main wear on the insides. These have been on the car in the same spot for 4 years due to not being able to rotate them to the front. The tire shop that put the tires on the rims got one of the rotations of the tire backwards. If I had moved it to the front I was worried about the water channels not being able to clear properly.
Now, I know that we have some - camber but wow is all I can say. I didn't know just how bad off my rears were until I had the wheels off to do the rear brakes. Under normal walk around inspection and hand feel, they had no signs of significant wear. However I should have gotten on the ground and look a little better but I'm glad that I had caught it before our trip. Yet again, the wear is even between the two rears.
Is there a certain spec for the rears outside factory that anyone runs/likes? I will be getting a 4 wheel alignment when getting tires and would like a little less - camber. I will be running a 225/50 17 for a little wider tread and would like the rears to sit better lol. If factory is best then that's fine too. I will be able to rotate the tires on a regular basis with new tires. I'll make damn sure that the tire rotations are correct before leaving the tire shop this time.
