Talking If it rains I'm gonna die....New Pics!

I got sick of lookin at my 2k1 on steelies and winter tires while I'm waiting for my summers and Rota's to arrive so I borrowed some MR7's and 40 series Dunlops (and I would like to emphasize the DUN part) from Tekgnosis. Some of us are heading to Toronto for a team meet (3.5h drive) and I didn't want to run my winters....they'll burn off so fast this time of year.

Anyway - needless to say the wheels look nice but the tires are shall we say DONE..lol. I'm sure if it rains (not supposed to) I'm gonna wreck.

Have a look at the tires.....and then a couple of pics of the car I guess...lol.
Can you see the results of "Ghetto Camber" ?



Don't mind the 3M tape on the car...I'm in the process of removing it...lol.

How long did it take for your tires to turn like this and how much did you drop your car front to back?

well you sure are screwed, my brother got stuck once in heavy snow with the advan's that have a "w" tread kinda and he just couldnt control it at any speed at all. so youll be fxcked his were soft tread too so theyd have a better chance in the snow than other. but anyways props to you for letting people see why insane camber is stupid unless you need it for performance (not going around turns at 90) and i bet the fact the kid auto-xed is the only reason that the tread is even low on the other side too

Whoa.. crazy tires man... but speaking of slippage in the rain, my boyfriend's car had more tread on his tires and on a turn, slipped and jumped a curb... lots and lots of stuff had to be fixed... I think he was rollin on Nitto555s, and they were pretty worn, but there was still tread...
well.. be careful out there (if it rains)!!

no... camber kills soft composite tires. Its not always the way you drive it.

Before I got new tires two weeks ago, I was driving on tires with less than that (in the front), I was actually down to the fibers and stuff past the rubber (inly in a few spots though). But ya, rain was fun times with those tires.
