SquackDiddy is an unknown quantity at this point
my sister got into an accident not to long ago. she was drinking and she went over a curb with her 325ix and broke all her oem rims. she got some new rims and tires. and i didnt notice till now but her rear camber is way off. the inside of the rear tires are bald already. so i was wondering how would i be able to fix this? and what causes the camber to be off?

I bought my bimmer from a drunk, and he had been in a small run in with a curb and he said it was fine because it didnt hurt the outside of the car.

I found out that the camber was wearing through tires like no other... it needed new control arms and new inner and outer tie rods

check those first


if your not sure take it into an alignment place they will tell ya

sounds liky bent controll arms in the rear, onfortunatly i believe those are IX only parts and run you about 500$ can. for the set. atleast for the front ones, cause i did the fronts on my friends ix. anyways good luck to you hope its somthing simple.
