Re: Increasing Negative Camber

Hairy green toads from Mars made Gary Harris say:

I can't say about effects of negative camber, but I can speak about
Tire Racks claims about their wheel fitments. I have an '89 100Q,
which I ordered a set of (really nice) Borbet type C rims for in
15x7" size. Tire Rack swore that these were an exact replacement,
and would fit perfectly.

Well, the offset was completely wrong, and the tires (stock 205/60/15)
did not clear the wheel wells. It took quite some time and aggravation
to straighten out.

I would *absolutely* make sure that they will 100% guarantee the fit
of anything, and will pay all charges (including shipping and mounting)
to return anything that doesn't fit.

Only my cat shares my opinions, and she fits in pretty well.
