    Hey all. I recently installed 15x8 with +25 offset wheels with falken ziex ze 912. The tires poke ever so slightly. Just a bit. But it enough to make me go to the forums and ask this question: can a camber kit help pull in the tops of the tires so they won't poke? If so, how much camber will I need? I have the car as low as it can go without rubbing and the natural camber isn't enough. Help please and thank you.

    You can camber the top of the tire in but you risk riding on the inside of the tire and wearing them out quicker.

    Compress your suspension a bit and measure how much you're sticking out... then use basic trigonometry to see how many degrees of camber you need to add to clear the fender. One whole degree of additional negative camber extra will pull the outer edge of your tire in about 5mm.
