Just speaking in general. Factory BMW setting does spec the front camber little bit aggressively (like -1~1.5) which result in more inner tire wear. Possibility both front and back camber on the S8 are setup to even more aggressive (up to -3.5/-2.5 maybe?) with toe-out at the front for a stay flat fully engaged to the ground effect.
