Rubbing in rear, need camber recommendation

So my rear outer tire still rubs with passengers even though the factory rear arms are at -3.5 camber and was wondering what good kits there are out there to go a lil more negative to stop the rubbing

Do the rear brake hub mod and gain 8mm or so.

That is a lot of camber and still have rubbing. What rim width and offset along with tire size are you running?

The rim width is 9.5" and offset is 40mm with a 245/35/18. I ordered a set of Agency Power rear camber kit to go a lil more negative and fix the rubbing issue

What brand tire? I'd think that would easily work with a small running tire 245 such as a Toyo T1R.

Federal 595 RS-R, I have a set of Toyo R888's in 245/40/18 that I'm planning on swapping when I put the camber kit on. I'll also need to raise the car a bit since I'm running a higher profile with the new tires.

You are going to eat through that tire at -3.5 of camber

-1.9 and I don't rub.

17x9 ET45 w/255 RE71R Tires.



Camber isn't going to solve all. Proper springs and shocks instead of OE rates will help too

+40 is not nearly enough.

As said above you're going to destroy those tires. What's the point of running a sticky tire if the alignment is so out of wack that you just ruin tires?

Again as mentioned, why not get a wheel with proper offsets?
