    As a rule, if you are going any more than an inch of drop, you should get a camber kit for the front and back end, and get and alignment. Your alignment probably has more to do with your tires getting messed up than lack of a camber kit. Also make sure your bushings are not really torn up, as that can also cause poor tire wear characteristic.

    Hm...really? I want a camber kit so I can add negative camber, not reduce it! I say just get your car aligned. Camber isn't going to kill your tires, thrown caster and toe will.

    Unless you are racing a lot, and know how much camber your setup needs, an increase in negative camber isn't going to help you a lot with anything. and it WILL contribute to premature wear on the insides of the tires, unless you are rotating them ALOT. And with directional tires, that gets expensive. You should have seen the tires that came with my rims before I bought my bfgs. They were terrible.
