back wheels is tilted
My back rims is tilted and it looks like this / \. Is something wrong with it? If so, how can I fix it?


If you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself.

You need to do an alignment ASAP. Camber problems. Did you lower your ride?

It definitely needs an alignment...especially after a drop, no matter how much.

and 2kgts meant we have negative camber stock. FYI, all cars have camber.

I brought in to the dealer a month ago to get it aligned but he told me that I have to put my stock rims on because my rims was to big. He said something about it messing with my sensor and my camera bolt needed adjustment (not sure what he meant though).

you may also want to tell your ecu that your rim size is bigger because it calibrates the rpm differently. there's a plug in the goes into the diagnostic port under your dash to do this.

what size rims do you have, if they're 17 or 18 dont worry about it.

Your dealer is stupid. Take it somewhere else for an alignment, just make sure they don't scratch your wheels. And when he said 'camera' he said 'camber'.

i got that problem too. i dropped mine 1.5 inches. they guys at tiresplus said that they couldn't do the camber, they said they can only adjust the toe. so, my guess is that we need to get a camber kit?????
