doesnt this have a bad effect on handling and wear the tyres out?
If anything I think it's improved the handling because before I could feel the stretch tyre rolling on the alloy can't feel it anymore but that might all be in my head haha! And Yeaah it's starting to effect my tyres already :(

I agree. Might get some 3mm washers for mine. Just got to make sure and torque it up right though. Can imaging you will get pulled for that though. And stretch is hazy with coopers. Enjoy having flat tires! Lol. Best to get a set of federals. You cant kill them. Will still last 20k on that camber! Lol

Ohhh I hate buying new tyres. Mine ain't as bad as £150 a corner but still bloddy expensive! Buy brand new alloys for price of 4 new tyres "/

i just like decent tyres so get bridgestone potenza s001 tyres :)
Mine £110 a corner Rainsport 2 which I think are pretty good!

Not been pulled yet for anything well apart from going down a buss lane :lol: and getting a fine! Most cops don't have a clue about cars so usually okay! But can't get pulled for having to much camber can you? Aslong as your tyre is within 5mm of the top of the arch or something!
