In "The Last Run" with George C Scott (great movie, btw, it's from the early 70's) there are some shots with a mounted camera at speed while Scott drives a mountain pass at high speed.

The camera is pointing right at the right rear tire/wheel of the 503 convertible. Here you can see clearly, what positive camber is all about and why it's so potentially deadly.

Also, in these same scenes, there's lots of tire distortion as the slip angles build up.

Fun stuff....
