looks like mine used too its really not that bad.....if you dont mind replacing tires every year because the inside is wore out of them...personally it was expensive and a pain in the a$$ cause you look at a almost perfectly good tire but it has to be replaced cause the inner part is wore down to nothing

Nah its much cheaper to get a adjustable camber instead of going through new tires yearly, do the math, as expensive as camber adjusters are, its worth it!!

Don't get a camber kit, just leave it. People are always amazed at the camber on my car. They don't know what the **** is wrong with the back tires. BTW it looks better with bad camber.

My coupe has serious neg camber straight from the factory and I've yet to see any ill effects. Most people buy the camber kit to increase negative camber or offset the lowering springs. If you decrease negative camber your car will be more prone to over-steer during hard cornering.

just my opinion
