My friend Luis and I have an ongoing argument that the wheels on stock cars (maybe all) are always slanted for suspension purposes. Meaning that the side wall is NOT paralell to say a standing person.

that the wheels are like this "/ \" not like this "l l". Even if a SLIGHT degree. He swears to me they are not cuz he can see and if mines are slanted its due to abuse. He said find him proof.

Now if I am wrong then I am wrong. But I think I am right.

We can settle this once and for all Lou :chuckles:

buddy, ol pal, buddy, ol pal, buddy , ol pal, o mine.

:rofl:

In a nice, shout free discussion.:)

Celicas have -1.8 or -1.3 degrees of camber in the rear meaning the wheels are slanted like / \ right off the showroom floor.

as most people know, hotckis makes camber links. i had always assumed they corrected the camber back to parallel. but according to carl, the car comes stock with a bit of camber, so the links probably bring it back to a more reasonable level once the car is lowered. it may be one of those situations where you want a little of something but not too much senarios. a little camber might help hold the road better, but too much and you will wear you tires unevenly.

ok. See luis. your celicas wheels ARE slanted. NOT straight. Its a fact that the celicas camber is negative. meaning slanted wheels.

i dont know why a stock car would
It maintains the tire contact patch while turning. The tires' sidewalls flex and pull to one side during hard cornering, so negative camber helps counteract that. If you lower a car and you don't get an alignnment, you'll definitely have much more negative camber than you need (and everyone will know it ;) ), and it will wreck your tires.

Many, many cars have it stock, like the RX-8:


BMWs have noticeable negative camber as well:
