bmws come from the factory with more negative camber than most cars... but you dont have to fix it if you dont want too.. ust go throw tires faster... there is and isnt such a thing as to much rear camber... it all depends on the cars purpose... for 98% of the people on this board it is there is to much

Did you ever get an alignment? It could have been a bad alignment. It could be toe or camber, actually. Toe eats up tires pretty fast, too. Try to get the car on a rack and see how much and camber you can adjust to. If you can't get it with the stock RLCA, then invest money into the nice ones.

The UUC ones are nice but they are more for racing. They are designed NOT to fold on impact. This makes racing more safer, but it will force damage upon the subframe and other parts. I'd go with the Ground Control. I love UUC products, but I think GC has them beat on the RLCA. And they're cheaper I believe.

yea there from the rear, the fronts wear down fine.
My rears eat up from the inner side of the tire, too much negative camber. After the H&R's the stock " Arms ill call um just are doing it no more. So ive been looking all over and it seems like the adjustable ones are the way to go.

I think I'm going to pick up a pair of those GC adjustable arms, and make sure I rotate my tires every few thousand miles.
