When you change camber, toe is indeed affected. I'm guessing that you're having to steer a little to the left in order to drive straight on a level road.

Same here, at least back when I was still working and had, literally, a 5 minute morning commute. Two (very) extremes and a hard or two just inside the last minute was normal routine.

As far as I'm concerned, this is the worst part of drivewise or any similar system.

Apparently, Allstate's trigger point for "hard braking" is 8 mph/second, or about 0.35g deceleration, which as...

So what you're saying is that the '15 GTPP can more or less play with the kids from the higher priced neighborhood.

Of course he didn't. Because if he did, and you put up a stink about it, he'd have had to fix it on his dime.

Strut clearance? It looks like the backspacing for a 20 x 10 x +40 is midway between the backspacing for your +25's and the backspacing of your 11" wide rear wheels.

For a 1LE I'd look at 9" wide wheels only as a last resort. 20 x 9.5's seem to be readily available, and either that size or 20 x 10's will work with 275/40-20's.

They need to be mounted on 12" wide, minimum. Even 335/30's want at least 11.5's.
