well if you look closely you can see that the edges are bald (i flipped the tires once)

so this is why i got this done.







it turns out i had like toe in and out. it was really bad. im not quite sure how my alignment got so bad. but now i have no toe and one degree of camber in the front (which is within oem specs!!!!) hahahaa and 2.5 degrees of camber in the rear, which was the most that we could adjust.

i was gonna post this up a lot earlier, but the day after i got the new tires put on is when i got my car backed into. so basically its been sitting in a body shop for like two weeks now. ohh wells



ohhh and this is why you need a lsd!


getting stuck up driveways really kills me :pissed:

I'm guessing you're auto, because I already have LSD :)

im manual with no lsd =*( i think they discontinued LSD as an option for the last year of the is300 production. my tires on my stocks looked like that but i finally replaced them and got an alignment 2 weeks ago

again, i'm going to say with negative camber on our cars, you NEED toe IN. zero toe doesn't do anything. i don't care what your experience is with other cars is, but i've had -2 up front with 1/8" toe in and i had even tire wear.

i made the mistake last year of going with 0 toe up front. although i had nice turn-in response, i wore out the inside corners in a year.

next alignment is going to be 1/8" toe in again up front and 1/16" in the rear.

PS - LSD will only help tire wear if you're burning up one tire more than the other.

maybe i'll get another alignment soon.

as for the lsd. i get stuck up a lot of driveways so thats why i want it.

i'm afraid the stock LSD doesn't help with that. i still get stuck on driveways when they're really bad. Torsen sucks when it comes to losing traction completely in one wheel. it works when there is a difference in traction, but if its 100% and 0% then it doesn't do shit.

you'll need a good clutch type LSD to conquer driveways
