This weekend I took my Cruze to an autocross. The car was great as always. However...
This course setup included a skidpad (in both directions) and now I have some pretty ugly wear on the outside of my front tires. I bumped tire pressure up to 44psi hot in the front, and yet I was still rolling onto the tire "shoulder" and scrubbing rubber off pretty hard (the tires are BFG Sport comp 2, 225/50r17).
I plan on rotating the tires, but one of the TireRack techs present suggested adding 1-2° of negative camber to the fronts to help prevent this wear in upcoming events. So, questions:
I commute a lot, including about 4 1000mi road trips each year. Will adding front camber just ruin the inside of my front tires?
Can I even adjust the camber without lowering the car? Are there extra consequences with adjusting front camber but not rear camber?
If I do go forward with the camber adjustment, is installing camber bolts or elongating the strut holes easier? With camber bolts, I'll be able to adjust camber on the fly, correct?
