Size:  338.7 KBHey guys just wondering if this is normal type of wear for aggressive Street setup? When we did the alignment awesome guys system crashed before the print out the sheet for me but we went with about a -2.1 camber on the front 0toe and I can't remember how much negative on the rear not really concerned about the rear tires most of that from stormy burn outs near the end but the front innerwear has steps and I was wondering if that's maybe a result of negative toe not an expert on this stuff just want to throw some new tires on there and it handled great did 4 autocross events and about 10,000 km of Highway type driving also like to drag race locally a few times a year probably try a different set any suggestions welcome!

Yep, I had a set wear the inner tire off and the alignment was a little off. I would say it looks the same for you, not a lot but noticeable. the tires look like they provided many fun miles, throw a new set on and keep going (after the alignment).

looks like not enough track miles for the amount of camber ran

You NEED to have the front toed in. That is 100% the cause of your wear pattern. That little of camber will not cause improper wear. People like to blame camber, but toe is much more damaging to the tire. At speed 0 toe becomes toed out and drags the inside of the tire, also adds nothing for performance. Toe it in to 1/32-1/16" and see how much better it drives.

Also, I can see based on your wear pattern/scrubbing that you need more negative camber for maximum contact patch when cornering hard. I believe I am running about 2.5* negative camber up front for commuting and have zero issues with uneven tire wear.
