lol well /....\ is called negative camber. The lower u go the more camber you will have. To fix this you do not need new tires... u need to purchase an aftermarket adjustable rear camber kit, and that will solve your problems. The fronts wont be affected by camber unless its crazy low...an alignment will fix the front toe..

alignment will not fix negative camber. Alignment is how far the car drifts the left and right.

Fvcktards ftl! Why would you post that you don't know the answer? Yeah negative camber can be fixed with a camber kit. Takes an extra 10 minutes to install them while installing your springs.
