Negative Camber effects on driving and tire wear
What is negative camber?
Negative camber is when the top of the tire is tilted toward the engine. Camber is a tire wear angle and it also affects cornering.
Is there a benefit to negative camber?
Yes. If you’re an aggressive driver and are involved in racing, setting your vehicle with negative camber can provide better handling during heavy cornering. On the flip side, you’ll have decreased tire contact in straight ahead driving and you’ll experience increased tire wear on the inside tire shoulder area.
That is why people with high-performance vehicles which corner frequently will want to have negative cambers on their front wheels.
Camber Affects Tire Wear
If the camber is out of the manufacturer’s range, it will cause handling issues and excessive tire wear.
