ideal camber angle
what is the IDEAL camber angle for better road grip and longer tire life? just bought my tires a year ago and its already used up...
ideal camber angel... none its all math... how big the tire is, how wide it is etc. the ideal for tire life is of course strait as possible.
i got Bridgestone 65w r16s touring tires...front suspension is an inch 1/2 lower than the civic's stock...and the rear is an inch lower...eibach street springs and type-r brakes...they're all straight...normal camber and 0-degree damper...
i'd be looking at toe-in settings aswell...more then 1 or 2 degrees toe in will give you a shorter life then camber will
you want everything zeroed in for longest tread life and best grip on road.
not true...a certain ammount of negative camber and toe in can help grip in corners much better then a zeroed sussy. look at when racing cars such as formula 1 use camber. buuutttt...you dont want rice bucket doing the splits camber...thats just stupid
well, im also considering the best cornering ability as possible...
well there isnt an ideal for both...zero camber and zero toe will give you the best tire life, and neg camber and toe in will give you better cornering...its a trade off you have to weigh it up and decide how much your prepared to go with for tire life.
or toe out...toe out will probably give you better handling then toe in
so there's really no ideal setting...i have to decide for myself right?
im getting new Bridgestone tires later this year anyway...i'll get the tubeless ones...so i'll go for the negative toe-in setting for best grip on the road...
yup. the more extreme settings will give you worse tyre life and better handling (to a point).
My EP3 (civic Type R ) runs front camber Neg 45 min (thats less than 1 deg) toe in .5mm and rear camber 0, is ideal if you want good control and tyre life too.....
thats what i was planning to do...
