My 1999 328isedan has had two alignments this year and the tires are shot.
they were also rotated several times. All four are worn to the belts on the inside edge.
I am considering having it set to .25 degrees of negative camber which is the edge of the service limit. I drive on straight roads and would not benifit from the "handling" factor of negative camber. 1000$ for tires every year is not worth it to me.
Does anyone have other suggestions?
I have 18" zenneti with SO3 225-40-18. Sport pk/eiboch .5" lowering springs

all 4 are like this ?!!

this sounds like the eibach springs are at fault, and the whole geometry shifted. i am thinking the current camber settings have been measured incorrectly.
