You can probably get more but will require the alignment shop to know what to do.
I finally found my specs after rummaging through my emails. Ran less camber in the rear and more in the front to allow for a more neutral rotation countered the staggered setups understeer. Important note: If you run that much negative camber up front, you will be wearing out the tires
faster on the inner edge; however not as fast as 6k miles like Smolck pointed out. Mine lasted about 20k miles.
Staggered set E46 ZHP- 225/40/18x8 Fronts, 255/35/18x8.5 Rears on PS2s all around.
-1.5 front camber
-1.1 rear camber
0" front total toe
1/8" rear total toe
Thanks guys! Makes me feel a lot better.. will have to take it to my lifetime free alignment at Firestone since I just got new tires but nice to know.
Should I actually take the #'s above and take it to them? I wouldnt be surprised if they were not familiar with a ZHP's specs. I hope they dont do a bad job but I have been going to them for like the last 10 years. They always give me a computer report when I ask for it etc... (P.S. I have 17" BBS, not sure if that matters)
